Pakistan is a progressing country and now it is rising in the world by its talented and educated people. Education system in Pakistan is very complex and uncertain. There are four provinces in Pakistan and every province has its own education system and course outlines. There are also Madaras in Pakistan which have totally different syllabus and curriculum.

Curriculum and Syllabus in Pakistan
This is the critical point in Pakistan educational system. There is no single curriculum in Pakistan. Every province has its own curriculum and syllabus. On the other hand, the Madaras where Islamic education is given has different curriculum and syllabus.
There are four province and there are four different books of English of the same class. Because every province in Pakistan has different history and culture. This is the reason of different course outlines and subject’s syllabus. Punjab has its own curriculum and other provinces like Sindh, Baluchistan, and KPK have their own curriculum according to their culture and history.
It is beneficial for the primary and secondary education but not so good at higher level. Because at the higher-level education you have to face the international community and you have to work and do job according to international standard.
