SSC exams Part I and II General and Science for 2008

Karachi, April 5, 2008: The annual examinations for Secondary School Certificate (SSC) Part I and II General and Science for 2008 will be held from April 15 to May 7 in the morning and afternoon shift, said the Assistant Controller Examination, Bizatullah Khan.

This year, the exams for both classes nine and 10 are being held at the same time, which was previously held separately in Karachi only. A total of 280,000 students, including both General and Science groups, have enrolled themselves for the exams, for which about 415 examination centres have been established. The students of class 10 will be giving exams in the morning shift, while class nine exams will be held in the second half of the day.

Out of the total number of students registered, 101,489 students are enrolled in class 10 (Science group), and 112,758 for class nine (Science group). For the general group (class 10), 26,102 candidates have been registered and 27,649 for class nine and about 12,000 private candidates have registered themselves in the general group. The admit cards for the regular candidates have been issued to their respective schools while the private candidates' admit cards have been despatched to their residential addresses.

The board authorities have also sent letters to the Karachi Electric Supply Corporation (KESC) management, requesting that examination centres be exempted from load-shedding during exam hours. However, the schedule for the exams has yet to be issued by the Board of Secondary Education Karachi, with the final programme being specifically related to the vigilance team and black-listed examination centres.

School holidays out of the blue
April 05, 2008: Considering how utterly disorganised we are as a nation, it should come as no surprise that the government often declares a holiday for schools at the eleventh hour. Take Zulfikar Ali Bhutto's death anniversary which for decades has not been an occasion for declaring a holiday. On Friday, unprepared parents and elated students woke up to the news that schools and colleges in Sindh were closed. Many who were not so informed must have actually gone to school to find the gates bolted. The authorities announced the holiday the previous night and caught the educational institutions unawares. Regrettably this is not something new. The authorities tend to treat academic schedules cavalierly and are known for not giving ample notice when declaring holidays or changing term timings. A similar approach was adopted on the occasion of Benazir Bhutto's chehlum in February and earlier for her Oct 18 homecoming. Last August, too, Karachi's city government, in a fit of religious zeal, closed schools for Shab-i-Barat without giving prior notice. Such an ad hoc attitude only causes parents, teachers and children - delighted though the latter may be at the prospect of no homework - much inconvenience.

More efficient planning by the education department is needed so that school administrations are informed about the dates when educational institutions will be closed. Such planning would also bring to the notice of the school authorities how short our school calendar year is becoming. This is no doubt affecting the standard of education. Many holidays - especially those given on the religious occasions - might be felt to be mandatory. But cannot other occasions be observed in other ways without closing down educational institutions altogether. If schools are instructed to devote an hour or so in the morning to talks, debates or even a play or a tableau to highlight the significance of the person or occasion that is being honoured, children would certainly find this more instructive than a day off from school when many students do not even know why they have been gifted a day for rest and recreation.
