Class XI academic year further shrinks
Karachi: First-year students of the city's public sector colleges and higher secondary
schools are lagging behind not only their counterparts in private
colleges of the city, but also the students of the country in completing
their course because of their current shortest-ever academic year.
The gap between the academic year of the first-year students of the
city's government colleges and higher secondary schools and the students
of the same class studying in public sector colleges of Punjab,
Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and other parts of Sindh and even those
studying in private college of the metropolis has been widened by around
two months as the former will have just 152 academic days to complete
their course as against 206 academic days available to the students of
the rest of the country and even those belonging to the city's private
educational institutions.The current academic session for the first-year
students of the city's public sector colleges and higher secondary
schools may further shrink to just 124 days (around four months) if
Sindh Education Minister Pir Mazhar-ul-Haq's proposal of extending the
date of the Higher Secondary Certificate annual examinations from April
to May 2011 is not approved by the Sindh chief minister.The Sindh
education department's steering committee in its meeting held a couple
of months ago recommended that the date for both the SSC and HSC annual
examinations-2011 be extended by one month so as to make up for the
academic losses suffered by the students of Class IX, X, XI and XII in
the recent floods in Sindh and delayed commencement of first-year
classes in the city's public sector colleges.
A summary containing this recommendation is yet to be approved by the Sindh chief minister.
In this situation the first-year students of the rest of the country
will have an edge over their counterparts in the city's public sector
educational institutions in completing their course.
According to some educationists, the course is devised by subject
experts keeping in view that there will be around 210 academic days to
complete the course.
Keeping in view this fact, the students of the rest of the country
are bound to perform better in their examinations and it will play a
crucial role in determining their merit at the time of their admission
to professional colleges.
The situation has arisen because of an inordinate delay in completing
the process of admission to first-year classes in the city's government
colleges and higher secondary schools under the centralised admission
The process of admissions to first-year classes began on July 23 and
was to be accomplished by Sept 4 and the classes for the fresh entrants
were scheduled to commence on Sept 6.
Although regular classes for first-year students in the city's most
public sector colleges and higher secondary schools began in
mid-October, the process of admissions continued even in the first week
of December which is evident from the provincial director-general's
(colleges) official circular (dated Dec 2, 2010) which inter alia
states: "All principals of government colleges (of) Karachi are hereby
directed that process of granting admission in Class XI for the session
2010-11 in all government colleges of Karachi must be completed up to
9th December, 2010 in all respect."
The process of admission to first-year classes in the city's public
sector colleges and higher secondary schools under the centralised
admission policy (CAP) was delayed for a host of reasons such as poor
law order situation, lack of coordination among the members of the CAP
Committee and heads of public sector colleges and higher secondary
schools and the belated decision of allowing heads of as many as 40
government colleges and higher secondary schools to grant admissions to
students at their discretion. Dawn
Senior college teachers told that though the first-year students'
shrunken academic year 2011-11 had been increased to 213 days in the
wake of the provincial education minister's proposal of extending the
date of HSC annual examinations by one month i.e. from April, 2011 to
May 2011, the number of academic days available to students for
completing their course would be around 154 if 59 holidays (36 weekly
offs, 13 public holidays and 10 winter vacation days) were deducted from
Oct 15 when their classes had begun and May 15 when their classes would
Although the colleges across Sindh are scheduled to re-open on Jan 1
after observing the winter vacation, regular classes for all practical
purposes will begin on Jan 3 as Jan 1 and Jan 2 are falling on Saturday
Describing the minister's decision of extending the examinations by
one month as "a wise and timely decision", senior professors of colleges
said that though the decision had been taken keeping in view the recent
devastated floods in Sindh, it would prove a boon for first-years
students of the public sector colleges and higher secondary schools of
the metropolis as they would have about 24 extra academic days with the
proposed extension of the HSC examinations by one month.
Commenting on the situation arisen out of shrunken academic year,
Sindh Professors and Lecturers Association (SPLA) central president Prof
Ather Hussain Mirza said that the directorate-general (Colleges) of
Sindh had set a new record of the shortest-ever academic year for
first-year students of the city's government colleges and higher
He said that how it was possible for the first-year students to
complete their course in mere 152 days (around five months) when 210
days were considered appropriate by experts while devising the course
and when there was also an acute shortage of teachers in the city's
The first-year students of the city's government colleges would
definitely lag behind their counterparts of the rest of the country as
well as those studying in private educational institutions of the city,
he said, adding that the worst-sufferers would be the students having
pre-engineering and pre-medical groups as the science and computer
laboratories of most of the government colleges were ill-equipped.
"Isn't it an irony that the despite the education department
officials claim that they had purchased the equipment required for the
laboratories of the public sector colleges, the colleges have not yet
been supplied with it although the current academic year is already half
way through," remarked Prof Mirza.

Lyari medical college set to enrol students next month
Karachi: The Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto Medical
College (SMBBMC) in Lyari will start functioning next month and all
necessary arrangements for imparting education to the first batch of
students have been finalised by the administration of the institution.
Principal of the college Professor Iqbal Memon said he
had already sent the summaries pertaining to the appointment of faculty
heads to the authorities concerned and hoped for a timely approval.
He said the admission policy would be announced soon after the
appointment of faculty heads and the admission process would be
completed within a month.
Mr Memon said he was satisfied with the arrangements for academic
activities, adding that he did not see any hindrances to come in the way
of imparting education at the college.
It was on January 28 this year that President Asif Ali Zardari had
formally announced the medical college project at the Chief Minister's
House. The admission process was supposed to be started in February or
March but the programme was hit by delays, attributed by the
stakeholders to "tactics by some bureaucratic elements".
Describing the establishment of the college a as "gift for Lyariites
in recognition of their great sacrifices for the restoration of
democracy in the country and their decades-long struggle against
dictators", the president had ordered completion of all formalities in
this regard on a top priority basis.
Making the college functional within the stipulated time was possible
as the entire infrastructure required for a medical college was readily
available within the precinct of the Lyari General Hospital (LGH), the
proposed site for the educational institution.
More arrangements are to be made swiftly to accommodate the first
batch of students in the Ayaz Sammo Nursing School, which was
established within the LGH vicinity in 1989 and inaugurated by the then
prime minister, Benazir Bhutto. A sum of Rs50 million had been spent on
the rehabilitation of the LGH building to ensure proper education,
training and healthcare facilities for a large number of students,
professionals and patients.
A proposal was also floated to turn the LGH facility into a medical
complex by integrating the hospital, medical college and nursing
institute soon after making the college functional. The proposal
provided for high-standard educational facilities as well as
professional services so that the college could become upgraded and
entitled for the status of a university.
According to the college principal, the process of planning for
academic and training facilities as well as the construction work in the
initial phase is over.
Applications for enrolment of the first batch would be invited with the announcement of the admission policy, he added. Dawn
