GILGIT (APP): Aga Khan University Examination Board (AKU-EB) has opened liaison office in Gilgit Baltistan to help affiliated schools create an active learning environment for the students. Located in Gilgit, the liaison office will offer year-round support through a team of subject specialists, arrange professional development workshops for teachers and provide supplementary learning resources for students.
The AKU-EB offers emanations services in both English and Urdu, based on the national curriculum. It is the first institution in Asia to use a computerized examination processing system, E-marking, to ensure transparency in results. For the first time in Pakistan, the Board has also launched a Middle School Assessment Framework to bridge the gap between middle and secondary school, and prepare students at an early age for the analytical and critical thinking skills required for success.
Apart from e-enrolment of candidates and continuously updated information online, the Board has developed its own learning support site (http://learningsupport.akueb.edu.pk) to bring together students and educators from across Pakistan to a common platform where they can find useful resource material, share knowledge and exchange innovative ideas.
