As an important development to strengthen Educational Testing and Evaluation Agency (ETEA) and enable it to meet the testing requirements for all public sector recruitments, the chief minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Mahmood Khan has agreed in principle to the proposed reform plan for restructuring the agency and streamline all its operational matters and directed the authorities concerned to complete all the pre-requisites and initiatives well in time so that the proposed plan could be implemented in letter and spirit.
He added that ETEA was the single public sector testing agency and needed to be strengthened in accordance with the testing needs of modern era.
He was optimistic that implementation of the proposed reform initiatives would provide all time solution to the issues of testing and evaluation in the province and thus the provincial government would not require any private testing agency for the purpose.
He was chairing a high level meeting regarding reform initiatives in the Educational Testing and Evaluation Agency.
Special Assistant to Chief Minister for Information and Higher Education Kamran Bangash, Secretary Higher Education, Executive Director ETEA and other concerned high ups attended the meeting.
