Dow Medical College entry test 2010
Dow Medical College entry test
Karachi, Aug 24: Students standing in queue outside a
bank near the Dow Medical College (DMC) to submit their entry forms, got
into a scuffle with the staff as many of them were turned away for not
having Computerised National Identity Cards (CNIC).
Yasir Masood, a
fourth year student who is also a member of a student organisation, said
that if the CNIC was the case then the management should have made it
clear beforehand and it would not have caused the fracas. "The students
were justified as they already had to wait for their mark sheets, which
were delayed as a result of frequent clashes in the city, and now this.
Most of the students did not know which alternate documents were
required in place of CNIC cards."
As a result of violent clashes in
the city, a majority of students could not submit their forms because of
which the date for submission of entry forms was postponed from August
13 to August 23. At the same time, the college administration also
postponed the date of entry tests from September 19 to October 17.
they can postpone the date of entry tests why not postpone the date of
submission forms as well?" an irritated student asked.
administration had set up booths in five branches of the United Bank
Limited for students to submit their forms. These included branches in
North Nazimabad, Drigg Road, Rashid Minhas Road, Korangi and a branch
near the DMC. As the last date of submission of forms neared, a huge
number of students panicked and came to the UBL branch near DMC, pushing
and shoving each other.
Dr Rana Masood, admission coordinator at
the DMC, said that no student was turned away as the college had very
clear instructions on what to bring. "In case the students did not have a
CNIC, they were asked to bring their father's card. And as for the
clashes in the city, the students were given 10 days to submit forms in
any of the five branches. It is a clear disregard for instructions and
the college management cannot be blamed for it." The news

Educational future of thousands of flood-displaced children uncertain
Karachi: The unprecedented floods have not only wrecked havoc to the
civic infrastructure, but also dealt a severe blow to the education
system in Sindh, as a large number of school buildings, particularly in
the Katcha area have collapsed or damaged beyond repair after submerging
Though the official figures of affected
educational institutions are yet to come, it is feared that hundreds of
schools in the flood-hit towns and villages have been affected.
to the education department's statistics, prior to floods over 26,900
private and public schools had been operating in 23 districts of the
province, with 14,805 of them in Karachi, 1,821 in Hyderabad and 5,444
in other parts of the province.
The Sindh government had taken
precautionary measures following the flood threat including the closure
of schools in the Katcha (riverside) area, which was declared as the
most threatened area. The furniture and equipments of these schools was
shifted to safer places in vulnerable districts.
government education and literacy department had directed the parents of
students to send their children to nearby schools in safer areas so
that they could continue their education and in this regard, headmasters
of these schools were ordered to accept the students of Katcha area and
give them education, temporarily.
However, the majority of
population belonging to the poor class has migrated to the relief camps
in order to save their lives, where there were no adequate arrangements
of education for their children.
Meanwhile, the majority of
schools in the Pacca areas have been handed over to district
administrations for setting up relief camps for the flood-affected
people, while EDOs Education of Kandhkot-Kashmore, Ghotki, Sukkur,
Shikarpur, Khairpur, Naushehro Feroze and Dadu asked to set up control
rooms in their respective district headquarters.
Provincial Disaster Management Authority (PDMA) assessment, the flood
has directly affected about 20 districts of the province and 2.5 to 2.6
million people, out of which some 700,000 people have been affected in
the underdeveloped areas only.
Abdullah, a flood-affected student
staying at the flood relief camp set up in Government College of
Technology in SITE, said he and his friends knew nothing about their
academic future, adding that they along their families were living in
miserable conditions at the camp. "All of us want to get education. We
miss our school and teachers but it seems impossible that we will be
able to continue our studies as our villages and schools are inundated,"
Some teenage students, hailing from Jacobabad district,
at the relief camp said they left their schools and houses unwillingly
under the threat of the flood.
Sindh Professors and
Lecturers Association (SPLA) General Secretary Prof Iftikhar Aazmi said
that all educational institutes of the province except that of Karachi
and Hyderabad have been disturbed due to the floods. Many colleges in
Sukkur and other regions have been converted into relief camps while the
connection with many colleges including Government Degree College Phul
has been lost.
"The SPLA will soon meet Sindh Education Secretary
to discuss measures for the resettlement of the affected educational
institutions and student," he added.
All Private Schools
Management Association Sindh President Khalid Ali Shah said the
restoration of the educational system would take at least two years.
There is a threat that thousands of students in the province, whose
families have lost everything, would not continue their education.
the majority of private secondary schools have remained safe as floods
hit a greater part of the countryside having hardly any private
schools," Shah said
Sources in the office of Co-coordinator to
the Sindh Reform Support Unit Chief said that there was no data on the
damages sustained by the education sector in Sindh. Assessment has not
started yet, they said, adding that a Crises Cell has been formed to
access the losses and for floating recommendations to restore the
education process for flood-affected students.
Sindh Education Minister Pir Mazharul Haq, who was on a visit to interior Sindh, could not be reached for comments. ppi

Temporary primary school established for IDPs
Karachi: More than 400 displaced children have been registered at a
temporary three-room primary school established within the premises of
Labour Colony, Gulshan-e-Maymar, Gadap Town. Adviser to Sindh Chief
Minister Sharmila Farooqui inaugurated the primary school on Monday. She
said the school has been established due to efforts and support of the
Pakistan Institute of Labour Education Research (PILER), adding that
children aged five and above have been registered for Class 1 to V,
while the registration figure would rise to 2,000 for Classes 1 to 10.
Farooqui urged all segments of society to come forward in helping the
flood-stricken people, as millions of people have been forced to live
under the open sky. Although it was the responsibility of the government
to assist flood victims, the elite class should not consider itself
exempted from the responsibility, she added. She said that the
flood-affected people needed cooked food, clean drinking water,
medicines, tents, milk for children, and pots and pans for cooking food. app
