FBISE Part-I exam: 21,000 students can reappear in chemistry
Islamabad, Aug 24: Federal Board of Intermediate and
Secondary Education (FBISE) has decided to give a special chance to
21,000 intermediate students, who appeared in chemistry Part-I exam in
April 2012, to improve their result in the subject.
This decision was taken in a meeting after considering around 200
applications from different educational institutions as well as
students, claiming that the question paper for the subject of chemistry
was out of course.
Students had been claiming that the question paper for chemistry was
out of course and therefore reduced their chances of getting good marks.
A number of students claimed that if marks in chemistry would be given
to them by considering their score in other subjects, they were
confident of getting over 500 marks out of the total of 550.
Besides, most concerning issue for FBISE was that heads of some
educational institutions, including Fazaia Degree College Karachi and
Cantonment College Karachi, had also filed applications with the board
that the question paper for chemistry was out of course. This made the
board take the matter seriously and FBISE Chairperson Shaheen Khan
constituted a committee headed by secretary board Prof Israr Ali and
comprising representatives of Fauji Foundation, Cantt Garrison, Federal
Directorate of Education and other directorates.
The committee met on August 17, however the minutes of the meeting were released on Thursday as August 18 to 22 were holidays.
An officer of FBISE, requesting not to be quoted, said the committee
had called the question paper setter and sought his explanation.
"The paper setter explained that not a single question was out of
course, but admitted that he had asked tricky questions which might have
confused some students and they failed to solve them," he said.
"The result of intermediate Part-I, announced on August 13, 2012,
showed that students excelled in other subjects but hardly managed to
get passing marks in chemistry, the officer said.
The committee then decided that all 21,000 students, who took
chemistry exam, will get a special chance to improve their result, and
will be able to appear in supplementary exam 2012," he added.
Director Research, FBISE, Zulfiqar Ali Rizvi said that under
normal practice, students lose the chance of winning an award or
scholarship if he or she takes an exam to improve his or her result. But
the committee decided that this chance for improvement will not affect
the students' right to win an award or scholarship. This will be
considered a special case and those students who appear in it and manage
to get more marks than the previous position holder, will replace the
"All students who think that their marks in chemistry subject were
less than their expectation can apply for improvement," he said.
Mohammad Rafique, father of a student, said although the decision to
give a chance for improvement was positive, according to schedule
announced by FBISE, Friday (today) is the last date for submitting
However, the director research said the FBISE chairperson had been
informed about it and hopefully another five working days would be given
to students who want to improve their marks in chemistry. Dawn
