Karachi, Sep 09: The result of O and A levels was announced

with Froebel's Education Institute having one of the best results in O
levels. The students appeared in 16 different subjects for O levels,
overall the Frobel's students scored 189 A's, 135 B's, 48 C's, 11 D's,
three E's and two U's. The best result was seen in the English language
subject taught by Mrs Zafar where out of 47 students, 38 of them got A
grades and eight of them B and only one C. Other prominent results
included 11 A's, nine B's, and three C's in Accounts and 12 A's, nine
B's and three C's in Business Studies.
The highest achiever in
the Frobel's Education Centre was Sunaina Ansari who scored 10 straight
A's. "I give all the credit to my teachers who taught me so well that I
never required a lot of tuitions and yet managed to get 10 A's",
Sunaina Ansari said.
Aiming to become a chartered
accountant and serving her country as an economist, Sunaina believed
that it was the extra effort of her faculty members that made her
success possible. "Nowadays tuitions are very common trend in other
institutes but when your class teachers are giving you a complete
package for the course work then you never require tuitions, I only got
tuitions for Mathematics because I was very weak at it or else the
teachers had done a great job".
Specially thanking her English
teacher Mrs Zafar and Accounts teacher Ms Ayesha she said "All of our
teachers had given their numbers that no matter what time of the day it
is we can contact them and my accounts teacher has specially compiled a
book of past papers which she gave me for extra study that proved very
helpful in the end.

Too many cooks spoil the broth…
Karachi: The presence of a number of education
boards operating in the city has created a dilemma for students,
parents and teachers alike, as most citizens are embroiled in the
confusion surrounding which education board to follow, which system is
more innovative, which curriculum is more contemporary and above all,
what is the financial feasibility of being educated through a
particular education board.
Presently five different education
boards are at work in Karachi, including Board of Secondary Education
Karachi (BSEK), Board of Intermediate Education Karachi (BIEK), Federal
Board of Secondary and Intermediate Education (FBSIE), Agha Khan
University Education Board (AKUEB) and Cambridge International
"The coexistence of five different boards
within a city is a great example of how twisted the education system in
Karachi is, where no standardised merit can be set to judge the
theoretical and practical knowledge of students," said Commander Najeeb
Anjum, the principal of Adamjee Government Science College.
about the reason behind the existence of a number of boards, Anjum held
the Sindh government responsible for neglecting this issue for long.
"When the directorate of private schools, a department of the Sindh
government, can allow a private school to be opened on a
120-square-yard house which doesn't even fulfill the basic requirement
of infrastructure, then how can you expect them to streamline a
singular education system?" he questioned.
curriculum of the government boards has led to the intervention of
other boards. To find a single education system, the government should
sit on a single platform with all parents, teachers and other
stakeholders of the education systems to decide on a unified national
education policy, or else the differences within the education system
will keep on increasing," Commander Najeeb added.
of these boards cater to a particular kind of student, and a
specialised lot of students choose CIE, AKUEB and the other boards. The
Federal Board is only followed in schools of the armed forces,
including Army Public School, while the BIEK has been taken up by the
majority of community schools.
On the contrary, teachers
believe that being a student of Matric or of O level does not make a
huge a difference. "I don't think the problem is with the Matric system
or the Karachi Board, but the real problem is with the way examinations
take place. You hear every year about a great number of cheatings and
other mishaps during the conduct of the Board exams, as a result of
which real merit never comes out. Compare this situation to the Agha
Khan Board or the CIE, and you'll appreciate that they are
well-conducted and mishaps never take place," said Salman Abedin, a
renowned educationist and a teacher at various institutes said.
believed that in an ideal situation, there should have been one system,
though he believed competing ideologies have always existed. The
parents who are financially more sound prefer to send their children to
Cambridge system because it is believed to be more innovative or to the
Agha Khan board .On the contrary, those who cannot afford have no
choice but to follow the locals boards. Sadly this classification has
given rise to the concept of the educational elite as well, he added.
students on the other hand are of the opinion that money is what
matters in the end and decides your future institution. "This
difference in the education system will never be finished because no
one wants to abolish it. Students from the Karachi Board suffer badly
because the entry tests of most of private universities are made with
the A' and O' level pattern. Naturally, CIE students are better
trained, but our chances of admission are drastically reduced," said
Shahmir Ali Khan, an intermediate student.
