Karachi HSC annual examinations-2009 | SSC Practical exams

200,000 to take HSC exams beginning next week
KARACHI, April 22: All preparations have been completed for the Intermediate Part-I and Part-II (Class XI and XII) science, computer science and home economics groups annual examinations-2009.

The exams are scheduled to begin from Tuesday (April 28) under the aegis of the Board of Intermediate Education Karachi (BIEK).

The BIEK has also finalised arrangements for the Intermediate Part-I and Part-II (Class XI and XII) commerce group regular and private candidate annual-examinations-2009, which are starting from Saturday (May 2).

According to the BIEK officials, science (pre-engineering and pre-medical), science general (computer) and home economics groups' examinations would be held in the morning shift from 9.30am to 12.30pm, while the commerce group's examinations would be held in the evening shift from 2.30pm to 5.30pm.

However, the timings of the commerce group papers falling on Fridays would be from 3.30pm to 5.30pm.

Over 200,000 students would appear in the examinations for which the BIEK had set up 225 examination centres at both the government and private colleges, the board officials said, adding that in all, 99 vigilance teams (50 for science and 49 for commerce) groups examinations had been formed.

The BIEK officials vowed that the examinations would be held in a transparent and peaceful manner.

They said that they had already requested the authorities concerned to enforce Section 144 in and around all the examination centres, banning the entry of unauthorised people in the examination centres.

The sources said that the BIEK had also requested the authorities concerned to ensure that all shops doing photo-stat business in the vicinity of examination centres must remain closed during the examination timings so that "unscrupulous elements" who often try to make photo-stat copies of question papers and answers to the questions in the papers which could be supplied to the candidates sitting in the exams, could not succeed.

They said that science group examinations would conclude on May 23, home economics group examinations would end on May 25, while the last paper of science (general) and commerce groups' exams would be held on May 26.

Admit cards

The BIEK officials said that colleges had started issuing admit cards to their students who would appear in their Intermediate (Class XI and X) science (pre-engineering and pre-medical), computer science and home economics groups' annual examinations. Dawn

'3-year plan to make 12,138 shelterless schools functional with WB support'
Karachi: The government is implementing a three-year plan, for which Rs 100 million is being allocated to each district with a total of Rs 2.3 billion per year, so as to provide facilities, including construction of buildings, to shelterless schools in Sindh. This was stated by Sindh Senior Minister for Education Pir Mazharul Haq while replying to a question by Humera Alwani during the question hour in the Sindh Assembly on Tuesday. Alwani wanted to know the current number of the number of shelterless schools running in each district of the province.

The minister said that there are 12,138 shelterless schools in the province including 1,555 in Tharparkar, 1,149 in Badin, 1,061 in Sanghar, 999 in Umerkot, 768 in Shaheed Benazirabad, 736 in Kashmore, 677 in Mirpurkhas, 657 each in Khairpur Mir and Ghotki, 614 in Naushehroferoz, 571 in Thatta, 555 in Jacobabad and the rest in the districts of Hyderabad, Karachi, Larkana, Shikarpur, Sukkur, Jamshoro, Matiari, Tando Allahyar, Tando Mohammed Khan and Qambar. Replying to supplementary questions, the minister said that the amount being spent is a soft loan from the World Bank that will be paid back in 20 years with a one percent mark-up. He said that the DCO of each district is the focal person in the programme and each DCO signs an agreement through the World Bank to spend the amount as per the criteria laid down and the matter has not been left to the district nazims. Haq said that the amount is being spent to upgrade the infrastructure of existing schools and it is in addition to allocations made in the ADP.

On the occasion, PPP's Jam Tamachi Unnar said that during the last 15 to 20 years, the education system was razed to the ground and added that many schools just exist on paper. Endorsing the views of Tamachi, the education minister cited an example of a village in District Sanghar where 16 schools were shown to be constructed. Haq said that the 12,138 schools which were not viable are being worked upon by the Reform Support Unit, while adding that the World Bank has laid the condition that no new school would be opened until the existing schools are made viable.

Students forced to pay double fare for new 'point' service
Karachi: Students at the constituent colleges of Dow University of Health Sciences (DUHS) are being forced by the administration to pay triple the amount of fares as compared to rates charged by other public sector universities for their transportation services.

The bus service to and from university, also known as 'point' service, was previously all but free, but according to new directives, students at Dow Medical College (DMC) and Sindh Medical College (SMC) will pay Rs16 a day from May 2. It has been learnt that the raise in fare is double that charged by other government universities in the city, including the University of Karachi and the NED University of Engineering and Technology, both of which charge students five rupees and six rupees, respectively, for their bus service.

Students at both DMC and SMC have refused to comply with what they term is a "sudden" and "unaffordable" rise, and claim this is another one of the university's tactics for making them pay. "We now have to register to be able to use the new points," DMC and SMC students said.

The original point-bus service was halted by the university on Tuesday for 15 days on the pretext that they were in poor condition. Students were then informed that they would have to get themselves registered to use the new buses from May 2 at a cost of Rs2,500 per semester.

The proposal met strong opposition by the students at both colleges last month when DUHS issued a notification of the change. Students were also verbally informed of the decision, after which they thronged the offices of their principals in protest. "We told the principal both verbally and in writing that we cannot afford the new fare," said a DMC student. However, the principal replied that the matter was decided and that the fare would not be reduced.

Despite the discontentment of the students, notification of the new buses and their subsequent fare was followed by a distribution of registration forms and vouchers.

"We were told to submit the forms to the administration in a week, but most of us didn't follow the deadline," said an SMC student. Along with other students in his class, he also complained to one of their teachers about the rise, arguing that it did not equal the fare charged by other public universities.

Students from the class later informed the principal that they would not get registered for the new buses. "Very few forms were submitted, and the administration feared that their scheme would fail, which is why they have closed the present point-bus service," the student said.

The original bus service, which was closed down on Tuesday without prior notification, comprised 13 buses for DMC students and six buses for SMC students, all of which are rusted and overcrowded. Just a few months ago, a third-year DMC student fell off one of the buses and sustained serious injuries, an incident that students can still recall with dread. Despite this, however, future doctors would still travel on the decrepit university buses instead of public transport, as the latter costs at least Rs30 a day both ways.

Politics without knowledge meaningless, says VC
Hyderabad: Knowledge is the real empowerment and the students interested in politics during university education should understand that without education politics becomes meaningless, said Sindh University Vice-Chancellor Mazharul Haq Siddiqui at the inauguration of an exhibition organised by the department of economics.

He said some political groups of students had been trying to instigate students and using force to boycott classes for some days. But they did not know that the boycott of classes was an academic loss of the students, he said.

If students, he said, had any complaint against any one, they had the right to protest, but they had no right to disturb academic environment of the university. The vice-chancellor said the teachers were there to teach, educate and transform youth into good citizens so that they could serve their parents and society.

Mr Siddiqui said the university had accepted a challenge of conducting test of schoolteachers to select meritorious candidates.

Though it had been a difficult task, the university accepted the challenge and adopted all possible measures to conduct the test in a transparent manner, he said.

The vice-chancellor said Sindh had been facing the problem of quality education and accepting the challenge was aimed at improving school education in the province.

Later, he visited stalls exhibiting projects and modals developed by the students of economics and appreciated their efforts.

Students developed many projects reflecting current economic conditions of the country. Students of third and final year exhibited projects on capitalism, pyramid of capitalism system, Pakistans economy, an outline of Pakistans economic policy, GDP growth rate, poverty in Pakistan with its causes, the State Bank of Pakistan, major crops of Pakistan, inflation in Asia and coal resources in Pakistan.

Economics department chairperson Dr Murad Khatoon Panhwar briefed the vice-chancellor on projects displayed in the exhibition.

The vice-chancellor on this occasion also inaugurated the Quality Enhancement Cell (QEC) desk established by the department. Dawn
