With a literacy rate of 74%, Lahore is home to some of the country’s top educational institutions. These include those that offer O-level (which is equivalent to matriculation) and A-level (equivalent to intermediate) degrees, enabling students to take international exams through the British Council and attain globally recognised qualifications.
Furthermore, these can thus help them qualify and apply for jobs abroad after completing their graduation. However, with so many competitive private schools, it can be difficult to choose the right institution.
