Chandigarh 15 June ( Bureau): Punjab education minister Sikander Singh Maluka on Thursday announced to scrap the semester system introduced three years ago in Classes 9 to 12 in schools affiliated to the Punjab School Education Board. The decision was taken in a meeting with school board officials at their SAS Nagar office. Maluka said the semester system had been scrapped on the basis of feedback from educationists across the state and district education officers as this was a long-pending demand of many schools. The semester system was initially introduced for Classes 9 and 11 in 2009 and extended to Classes 10 and 12 a year later.
