Admissions process hits another delay
Karachi, Aug 7: Admissions to government colleges which started under the

of Secondary Education Karachi (BSEK) has yet to issue marks sheets to the
students of SSC Part II Science - a compulsory requirement for the submission of

date for submission of forms. The BSEK will obviously be unable to produce the

a month earlier, marks sheets are yet to be distributed - because they were
published on Monday. As a result of this, distribution will start from August 16
which is sure to interfere with the ongoing centralised admission process.
At present board officials are busy scrutinising SSC Part II papers of
both the general and science groups, said Bizatullah Khan Acting Controller of
According to the BSEK, mark sheets for the
science group have been sent for publication and would be distributed from
August 15 onwards. The town-wise dates for delivery of marks sheets to schools
are August 15 for the District Central, August 16 for District West, August 17
for South, August 18 for East and August 19 for District Malir. The news
