HSC Science (Pre-Engineering and Pre-medical) exams & Loadshedding

Students say outages during exams affect performance
Karachi, April 30: Unannounced power outages at many examination centres badly hampered the performance of candidates taking their crucial HSC Science (Pre-Engineering and Pre-medical) annual examinations on Thursday.

A number of candidates, particularly those whose examination centres have been set up in colleges and higher secondary schools of Nazimabad, Liaquatabad, New Karachi, Federal B' Area, Gulshan-i-Iqbal and Old City Area said that they had experienced outages of one hour and one-and-a-half durations during their first paper held on Tuesday and faced similar outages on Thursday at their examination centres - one of about 40 minutes and another of one-and-a-half hours duration - and they were finding it very difficult to concentrate on their paper in the hot weather conditions.

"As there was no electricity most of the time during our Thursday's examinations fans of classrooms remained off in the current hot and sultry weather and, as such, we could not solve our papers with full concentration because we were perspiring profusely," deplored a candidate whose examination centre has been set up at a Liaquatabad college.

Meanwhile, BIEK chairman Prof Anwar Ahmed Zai visited Govt Nabi Bagh College on Thursday to ensure peaceful shifting of an examination centre (at Nabi Bagh College) to two different centres - S. M. Govt Science College and NJV Higher secondary school. The change was ordered after complaints of external interference at Nabi Bagh College. Dawn
