Toppers say load-shedding undermined their studies
Karachi: Toppers of the Intermediate Science (Pre-medical) group examination on
Wednesday bitterly criticised the KESC making their studies extremely difficult
by providing no relief in its excessive load-shedding during their
"Our performance in the examination was badly affected owing
to the prolonged and frequent load-shedding and breakdowns. In fact, we would
have done much better, otherwise," they said while talking to newsmen at a
ceremony held here on Wednesday to announce the results.
They were of the
view that the Dow University of Health Sciences should conduct the entry test
for admission to the DMC and SMC only after completion of the HSC Science
(Pre-medical) group examinations. Ailiya Rizvi said her studies during
examination were affected by traffic problems in the city, besides disruption in
She was of the opinion that the credit of a student's
excellent performance should not go to his/her institution alone. "Sometimes it
is the institution that plays a vital role in inculcating positive traits in
students and sometimes it is the students themselves who work hard and study
with devotion to gain knowledge," she argued. Ms Rizvi says she studies for
eight hours as a daily routine.
Anam Hareem expressed her views on the
role of coaching centres in helping students do better in examinations. "There
is no harm in joining coaching centres because it has been observed that
students of the colleges offering proper and regular academic activities also
take tuitions and shine in the examinations."
Mohammad Danish Saleem said
that after doing his O'levels, he preferred to join the intermediate system
stream because being a local system, it allowed students to understand values of
their own society.
A student of a private college, Danish feels that
private colleges usually provide a better environment to their students as
compared to government colleges. Dawn
