The Allama Iqbal Open University (AIOU) has postponed written screening tests of various job posts that were scheduled for September 2022. The development comes after the recent floods wreaked havoc across the country, damaging the infrastructure and choking the national arteries in many parts of Pakistan.
AIOU had previously announced a single semester fee discount for students hailing from the flood-affected areas of Pakistan. Students who are enrolled in matric and inter at the university’s campuses in Sindh, Balochistan, Dera Ismail Khan (DI Khan), and Dera Ghazi Khan (DG Khan) will be granted a complete fee waiver.
Students who have already paid their fees will be recompensed in the upcoming spring semester of 2023. The university also set up 30 relief camps in the flood-affected regions upon the instructions of the Vice-Chancellor (VC) AIOU, Prof. Dr. Zia Al Qayyum.
