Does Aga Khan University Examination Board (AKU-EB) set more difficult examinations?

A. AKU-EB is operating within the national scheme of studies. It would be unfair to its candidates if their efforts after higher quality of thought were rewarded with fewer marks, putting them at a disadvantage in the competition for college places. AKU-EB monitors the rate of return on effort very closely. Candidates are asked to redirect their efforts towards more worthwhile learning. This is not extra effort it is different effort. They are not penalised thereby and in the longer term it is expected that their more worthwhile learning will give them a competitive edge.
