A 16-year-old boy from Multan, Muhammad Huzaifa, topped in matric exams in 2019. Huzaifa, who was a juice seller in Multan, secured 1050 marks in his 2019 matric exam. The extremely talented Huzaifa is the sole bread earner in his poor family. Moreover, was forced to work as a fruit juice seller to feed his family. He sold juice in the Ghala Mandi area of Multan.

The boy was offered a scholarship at a private college last year but he could not quit his job. However, in order to encourage the little kid to pursue higher education and live his dreams, Pakistan Bait-ul-Mal offered him financial assistance for his education and also for his family. 

Earlier this month, the inter-provincial government education ministers meeting chaired by Federal Minister Shafqat Mahmood made the decision to pass both Matric and Intermediate students. The decision comes as the fourth wave of the pandemic continues, with the number of active cases rising above 90,000.

The pandemic has made retaking exams of the failing students impossible in the near future, it noted. Additionally, students who failed would be given a discounted 33 marks.
