Education expo | Old exam schedule urged

Education expo: UK varsities' stalls attract students
Rawalpindi, April 04, 2008: Over 60 local and foreign universities including Britain, US, UAE, Malaysia, Canada, France, Australia and Ireland on Thursday put up their stalls at a two-day education exhibition.

However, most of the students were seen taking interest in getting admission in British universities.

Besides these universities, British High Commission (BHC) and British Council (BC) also set up their stalls and briefed the students about admission criteria and visa procedures.

The main areas of interest for the students were management sciences and information technology.

Sabina, a private schoolteacher said that though all the universities were the best, studying at British universities was a different thing.

Ayesha Buksh, another student said, "I want to study marketing because there is an immense scope for the subject and a never-ending demand for marketing personnel". The exhibition will conclude today (Friday). Daily Times

Old exam schedule urged
Rawalpindi: Educationists and parents have urged authorities to restore the examination schedule to March, says a press release.

Children, especially tiny tots, are delicate and prone to harsh weather conditions. In the month of May, perspiration runs right from the top to the toe, so it is cruel and inhuman to change the schedule, said an educationist Shamim Haider Syed, principal Grammar Public School. He said there was a time when until recently school examinations were held in the first week of March and the result was invariably declared by 31st March - there was a halo of sanctity around 31st of March.

He said the British had fixed the schedule of examinations and vacation after lot of deliberations and keeping in view the climatic conditions of the sub-continent. It is a myopic policy to change the schedule. Is it being done only to come in line with the O and A Level examinations. Let us be realistic and revert to our old schedule. Let the school promote their classes by 31st March. Let the Matric examination be completed in March and that of Intermediate in April. The News
