BISE Lahore online registration system fail
BISE online system fails yet again
Lahore, Oct 03: The Lahore Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education's online registration system failed yet
again, causing problems for private colleges registering intermediate Part I
students for the annual examination 2012 through the Lahore Board
The last date for online registration was extended till September
26, but the website link for registration was not working in the last few days.
This failure left many regular students of private colleges unregistered.
number of faults have already been exposed in the online system of Lahore Board
since its inception in 2010. The system caused problems for students and the
college administration every time registration began, roll number slips were
issued and results announced. Recently, further problems were exposed when the
result of matriculation was announced and more than 10,000 students were placed
under the Result Late (RL) category. Besides the RL case, a number of students
also received result cards full of errors.
Failure of registration mostly
affected the administration of private colleges, who had been unable to register
their students. Private college principals, students and their parents had
complained and expressed concern over the failure.
Principal of a leading
private college of Lahore said that more than 200 students of his
college had been unable to get registered because they were unable to access the
link leading to the registration page. He said that he had contacted board
officials several times, but that the reply from them was unfriendly and
unsatisfactory. He added that the online system also failed last year during the
registration of intermediate and matric students.
He said, " It is very sad
that authorities have no concern for the future of students and that no one is
thinking about the failure of the online system. The Punjab government should
revise its decision on using the faulty online system."
The mother of a
student, Mrs Jamil, said that board officials should make arrangements to
provide facilities to students rather than create panic amongst them every time.
She also appealed to the higher courts to take notice of the board's negligence.
Lahore Board Spokesperson Qaiser Virk said that the board would accept a
hard copy of the documents of those students who were unable to get registered
online. He said that he had no information regarding the closure of the Lahore
Board's website link for the registration of intermediate Part I students. Daily times

private schools are running from pillar to post to get their examination results
as the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education Rawalpindi has blocked the
results after the institutions failed to renew their registration.
The results of 9th class were announced a month back in which some 100,000
students were declared fail. These students applied for rechecking of their
papers in which majority of students achieved passing marks.
But the board has neither announced nor mentioned the second results on its
website and only those private schools have been provided with the cards which
are not defaulters to the board while the rest of institutions have been denied
access to results for want of registration renewal.
There are 1,078 private high schools affiliated with the BISE while the
number of government schools is 882. According to officials, results of 70
private schools have been withheld due to a row between the school owners and

both the school management and the board about his results, adding he was
anxiously waiting for his results.
"We know that students have no fault but the owners of schools are exploiting
them by not complying with the rules and regulations of the board.
We have imposed penalties on many schools and they are now using students as
a shield against us," Secretary BISE Rana Atta said when contacted.
He said majority of the students had been informed about their results while
results of only those private schools which had not renewed their registration
were withheld in order to force their managements to complete their legal

told this reporter that the board had failed in announcing the results; adding
dozens of school owners were all set to move the court in this regard.
"I ask the board as to why the result gazette was not made public which is
mandatory and the right of students. Why the official website does not show the
revised results. There are certainly malpractices which the authorities want to
hide. We will soon expose the scandal," Dr Sultan said. Dawn
