SSC-II (Class X) Sciences results: Private schools take top slots

KARACHI, Aug 1: The students of private schools outclassed their counterparts in government schools sweeping away all the top positions in the science group of the Secondary School Certificate (SSC) Part-II (class-X) annual examination 2007, according to the results announced Tuesday.

Sana Pasha of Falcon House Grammar, North Nazimabad came first with 809 marks, Tooba Anwar of Lady Bird Grammar School, North Nazimabad second with 793 marks. Third position was shared by Muhammad Hasan Khan of Chiniot Islamia Public School and Ashba Mushtaque and Nisha Usmani of White House Grammar School with 790 marks.

A total of 101,519 candidates appeared in the examination out of which 79,996 passed. Of these 10,202 were placed in the A-1 grade, 17,594 in A grade, 20,640 in B grade, 20,015 in C grade, 10,722 in D grade and 657 in E grade.

Seventy-eight percent of students passed, 3.61 percent lower than last year's successful candidates. An additional two percent grace marks were added on the orders of the governor. However, students had a mixed reaction to this decision. One percent grace marks had been added in the past. Marks sheets will be issued after two weeks and those of private candidates will be mailed to their addresses.

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 said.

Nisha Usmani said that government school teachers were not as devoted. "Perhaps they are not paid enough," she speculated, but hastened to add that girls did better in the exams because boys were not as serious.

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 the Board office. "I have had the cruel experience in my family of bribery in raising grades against money, which made me afraid for my own results," she said.

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 paper. Controller of Examinations Bizaatullah Khan termed it a technical 'decoding error'. "These mistakes occur due in the coding and decoding process," 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
