the top positions in the science group of the Secondary School Certificate (SSC)

Sana Pasha complained
about the delay in decision making over the examination schedule and syllabus.
"It disrupts our concentration when the board becomes confused over a decision
like the combined or separate examinations," she said, adding that she supported
the exams in the March-April period. "This time of the year is comparatively
cooler." Pasha, who wants to be a doctor, suggested reforms. "The syllabus we
study is decades old," she said.
Tooba Anwar, who wants to be a Fashion
Designer, suggested MCQ exams. "It's horrible to write for hours to obtain good
marks. It is illogical, particularly for science subjects," she
Nisha Usmani said that government school teachers were not as
devoted. "Perhaps they are not paid enough," she speculated, but hastened to add

Ashba Mushtaque left the O-Level system in class 8 to join the
Matric system so she could become a doctor. She expressed fears of corruption in

Mistakes have been reported in the results. Student Priya scored
more that 85 percent in almost each paper, but was shown as absent for the Math

he said. All students with faulty results can come to the board office along
with the original admit cards to remedy the problem. Daily times
