University of Karachi MA external exams mismanagement

Disorder mars MA external exams
Karachi, June 16: The MA (previous and final) annual examinations for external candidates began at Karachi University on Monday amid accusations of mismanagement.

Over 18,600 candidates are taking the tests at 23 different examination centres set up at various departments on the campus, including the new block of the faculty of Arts.

The candidates taking their exams at the new block of the Arts faculty were seen perspiring in the hot and sultry weather as the recently constructed block has no electricity connection as yet.

In the absence of proper guidance from the KU administration for the candidates, many candidates faced immense difficulties in finding their examination centres at the campus which is stretched over a huge area.

Because of mismanagement, at most examination centres, papers began at least 15 to 20 minutes late.

However, KU officials gave some extra time to compensate candidates for their time loss.

Meanwhile, the KU controller of examinations, Prof Nasiruddin Khan said about an incident in which a candidate who had got injured in a road accident outside the campus was immediately shifted to the university clinic in the KU ambulance.

After being given first-aid, the injured candidate was rushed to his examination centre so that he should not miss his paper, Prof Khan said.

As soon as the injured student finished his paper, he was sent back home in the university's ambulance, Prof Khan added.

Unlike past years' experience, not a single case of impersonation was detected during the exams on Monday. Dawn
