National Education Assessment System (NEAS)

NEAS was established in Islamabad under administrative control of the Ministry of Federal Education & Professional Training, linked with Provincial Education Assessment Centres (PEACEs) and Area Education Assessment Centres (AEACs).

NEAS has been institutionalized in Pakistan at national level with the cooperation of provincial and area Assessment Centers. Initially, NEAS and its sister provincial and area education assessment organizations were established as five-year development projects with the financial assistance of the World Bank and Department for International Development (DfID) in 2003. After realizing its significance in the education system, NEAS was made a regular feature of the education system and is now a subordinate Office under Ministry of Federal Education & Professional Training.

The system covers three separate programmes of education: The Middle School Programme (MSP), the Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and the Higher Secondary School Certificate (HSSC). Together, these three programmes account for a student’s instruction from Grade 6 to Grade 12, after which they may pursue higher education. AKU-EB’s syllabi are based on the national curriculum of Pakistan and are aimed at being accessible to both English and Urdu medium schools. Furthermore, AKU-EB’s examination system is intended to function within both the public and private spheres of Pakistani education. It represents an indigenous educational movement created for Pakistani students, with an emphasis on concept-based learning and a conscious rejection of rote memorization that plagues many Pakistani schools today.
