The introduction of the OxfordAQA examinations in Pakistan marks a significant step towards bringing world-class curriculum and assessment standards to the country.
This partnership between Oxford University Press Pakistan and AQA, the UK’s largest provider of GCSEs and A-levels, signifies a commitment to providing students and educators with access to internationally recognized qualifications.
By benchmarking the examinations to UK standards and emphasizing higher order critical thinking skills, the OxfordAQA examinations aim to equip students with the necessary tools for success on their educational journey and beyond.
The focus on testing subject ability through accessible language and internationally relevant contexts ensures that students can demonstrate their skills effectively.
Arshad Saeed Husain, the Managing Director of Oxford University Press Pakistan, has expressed his enthusiasm for the initiative, highlighting the organization’s dedication to bringing out the best in every student.
With the first teaching scheduled to commence in September 2024, the introduction of the OxfordAQA examinations is expected to open a world of possibilities for Pakistani learners and provide them with a strong foundation for future academic and professional endeavors.
