tried my best not to learn by rote," said Samad, who obtained 791 marks
out of the total 850.
Ali, who scored 790, said the BSEK
should do away with the guess-paper culture. "Repeating the same
questions from the five-year question bank makes it easy for anyone to
guess what the exam paper will be like."

standards. But we have been working on it for the past few years and
have brought the standard up a few notches."
Of the 137,968 candidates who appeared in the exams, 10.17 percent received the A1 grade and 18.2 percent the A grade.
20.21 percent managed to secure the B grade, 16.49 percent the C grade
and 6.78 percent the D grade. The pass percentage was 72.14 percent.

in the SSC Part II examination and 101 special candidates who appeared
in the SSC Part I exam.

Shams secured the first position with 88.11 percent, Zainab Ali Akbar
stood second with 85.88 percent, and the third position was bagged by
Maryam Ali with 84.82 percent. The pass percentage was 93.23 percent.
