The Commission on Higher Education (HEC) dismissed the viral announcement of online exams on the social media.
A fake Social Media Note from HEC has indicated that the Federal Minister for Education, Shafqat Mahmood, has ordered both public and private university Vice Chancellors to conduct online exams.
The notice also orders the varieties which have begun online exams, with effect from 28 January, to annul them.

The HEC explained that it did not request such notices when it took action on the viral text.
The Commission on Higher Education acknowledged the interests of university students.
The variations aimed at evaluating their ‘examination readiness,’ i.e. technical readiness, management capability, and the policy stated and choosing the best evaluation process.
An HEC spokesman told a local reporter that the Commission recommended to the universities “take examinations on the basis of their ability as well as the requirement of a fair evaluation.”
