UoP tells affiliated institutes: No compromise on assessment criteria
Peshawar: Participants of a meeting held at the University of
Peshawar on Friday demanded a standardised BS degree programme for all the
affiliated institutes of the universities in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
The meeting chaired by Vice-Chancellor, UoP, Dr Azmat Hayat, also decided not
to compromise on the assessment criteria already agreed upon with the affiliated
institutes, according to a press release.
Assistant Registrar, Affiliations, Gohar Rehman, said the BS degree programme
was started in September last year in three of the affiliated colleges of the
Mr Rehman said affiliation had been granted in BS programme semester system
under 40:60 ratio as agreed in the earlier meetings held between officials of
the University of Peshawar and the Higher Education Department, Khyber
Under the agreed upon mechanism 40 per cent assessment in each subject was to
be carried out by the respective teacher of the college while the remaining
60 per cent assessment by the University of Peshawar.
However, later on, a demand for 100 per cent assessment in all the subjects
by the concerned teachers of the affiliated colleges was put forth, which meant
that the University of Peshawar would have zero per cent role in the assessment
of the students to whom it was awarding the degree.
The meeting unanimously decided that such a demand being contradictory to the
earlier agreed upon mechanism was not acceptable. Dawn
