BISEK new Objective exam pattern & model papers

MCQs in papers by next year
Karachi, Aug 02, 2008: The annual exams of all educational boards will be held along a new pattern with 'Objective' questions and the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education Karachi (BISEK) has prepared 'model papers' so students know what to expect.

Sindh Governor Dr Ishratul Ebad said he was satisfied with the new pattern and felt that it would help encourage potential in students. According to an official handout Friday, the governor was briefed about the new papers by the chairman of BISEK, Professor Anwar Ahmedzai. The chairman informed him that all the boards in the country had been sent model papers. He also stressed that under the supervision of the Sindh governor the performances of the boards had improved as proved by the fact that they declared their results earlier than other provinces.

The meeting was attended by all the chairmen of the provincial boards.

ANP demands probe into SSC results:
Meanwhile, the president of the Awami National Party (ANP) for Sindh, Shahi Syed, has said he was unhappy with the current results for the Matriculation exams by the BISEK. He said that not a single student of a public school has secured any position in the board exams. According to a press release Friday, he claimed that all the positions were secured by students who belonged to business or political families, rendering the results dubious. He demanded the provincial minister for education complete an inquiry into the matter.

Schools partially reopen, private schools to open Monday:
With summer vacations coming to an end, schools in Sindh partially reopened on Friday, while private schools will reopen on Monday.

The Sindh education department announced on Tuesday that summer vacations will end on Thursday and that government and private educational institutions are to reopen from Friday (yesterday). However, reports from various parts of the province, including Karachi, show that government schools only partially opened.

A small number of students and teachers turned up on the first day and engaged in small talk the whole day since no classes started formally.

Private School Managements Association Chairman Khalid Shah said that while the private schools did not deny government orders to reopen on August 1, they will open on Monday, August 4, since Friday is a half day in any case and Saturday and Sunday are days off. Daily Times

43 textbooks not available as academic year begins
Karachi: Despite tall claims made by the Sindh Textbook Board, as many as 43 books of various subjects used in different classes are not available in the market, creating difficulties for students as the academic year in the province began on Friday after the summer vacations.

Surprisingly, these textbooks are not even available at the two stalls established by the Sindh Textbook Board in Urdu Bazaar.

When contacted the chairman of the STB, Ali Asghar Bhutto, claimed that there was no shortage of books in the market.

However, facts gathered during a visit to various bookstores in the city contradicted the claim of the STB chief.

Following books were reported to be unavailable in the market:

Mathematics, Urdu and Physics of Class X; Biology (both English and Urdu medium), Pakistan Studies (English medium), Sindhi for Class IX; Urdu, Science (English medium), Mathematics (English and Urdu medium) for Class VIII; Urdu, Islamiat, Science (English medium), English, Social Studies (English and Urdu medium), Science (Urdu medium) for Class VII; Mathematics for Class VI; Science (English and Urdu medium), Urdu, Social Studies (English and Urdu medium), Mathematics (Urdu medium) for Class V; Science (English and Urdu medium), Mathematics (Urdu medium) for Class IV; Social Studies (English medium), Mathematics (Urdu medium) for Class III.

Besides, students of first year (Class XI) are still searching for the following books:

Biology (English and Urdu medium), Mathematics, English (three books), Urdu, Pakistan Studies (English medium), Chemistry (English and Urdu medium) and Physics (Urdu medium).

Some booksellers claimed that books of Home Economics for sixth, seventh and eighth grades had not been seen for the last 10 years.

Interestingly, the STB chairman claimed it was the first time in the history of the STB that two bookstalls in Karachi and Hyderabad each and one in Sukkur had been established to facilitate students.

He said that the textbook board had released all copies of books to the respective sellers but publishers would release the editions according to the market's demand.

Mr Bhutto said that all the publishers had been asked to ensure availability of all books in the market by August 4. In case of non-compliance, publishers would be penalized and their contracts would be cancelled, he added.The secretary of the provincial education department, Rizwan Memon, said that the government had completed free distribution of textbooks of Class I to X across the province. He said that all the books had been despatched to the respective schools and would be distributed among students by August 4.

When asked about the shortage of textbooks in the market, he said that the relevant authorities would chalk out a strategy to overcome the problem in a meeting scheduled for August 4. PPI
