Impressions from the exam rooms Violation of BSEK rules, cheating mafia and yet another impersonator
Karachi: Some twenty candidates appearing in the Secondary School Certificate (SSC) Class IX, Chemistry Exam at the Medico Metropolitan School located in Yaqoubabad, Orangi Town were giving their papers while sitting on the floor.

As observed by this scribe on Wednesday, basic furnishings including desks and classroom chairs were not available and in one room, students sitting on the floor scribbled away on their answer booklets.

The small sized classroom with limited space was unable to accommodate the students and outside each classroom, three or four students were found sitting in the corridor in order to give their exam.

The centre superintendent claimed that only last year's failure students were sitting on the floor in the second last class room on Wednesday. "We had no information regarding these students and when they arrived at the school for the Chemistry paper, we were left with no option as there were no desks and hence they had to sit on the floor mats," she explained.

The Medico Metropolitan School is located in Yaqoubabad near the end of the town limits. However, in the Board of Secondary School (BSEK) examination centres list, it has been mentioned in Ghaziabad, Sector 11 Orangi Town. Many students had to travel for miles to reach at their destination, and spent at least one and an half hours in the commute. With some 10 to 12 minibuses available on the route, the journey is not an easy one especially given the hot weather and the exam anxiety.

The centre superintendent of Medico Metropolitan School was unable to answer any questions posed. When it was pointed out that the invigilators present on duty were hardly between the age group of 18 to 22 and if there were permission letters of the invigilators, she replied that the said, "The school is being run under as a non-governmental organisation (NGO), and all records are available at the head office."Meanwhile, the area residents said that a few youngsters had managed to escape from the school building by jumping the wall as soon as the media and BSEK officials entered the premises. "They were holding bundles of solved answer booklets as they escaped from the building. The solved answer sheets are available at Rs100 at the centre and the invigilators are directly involved in the business," they maintained.

A visit to the Makhdoomia Secondary School, situated in Block-L, Sector 11, Orangi Town was an eye opener. Several invigilators turned out to be the relatives of the candidates. "Such persons were deployed in the same class rooms where their relatives were sitting," the sources said.

"Younis Khan, Joint Secretary of the Trust (this school is run under the Makhdoomia Trust) has directed the school's management to keep away from the cheating issue involving relative," they informed.

The board officials found two cases of usage of unfair means at the school and confiscated the answer booklets along with the cheating materials.

During a visit to Daffodils Montessori and Secondary School System, a centre of female candidates, It was witnessed that two males who were trying to escape from the school from the backdoor. When apprehended by the media, the elderly male introduced himself as the 'Mufti' of a local mosque while he referred to the youngster as his assistant.

"I used to visit the school and today we were invited by the centre superintendent. We come here for Istikhara!" the self-claimed mufti said. However, the centre superintendent refuted mufti's statement and said that he had never meet the person. "He gave the reference of a former town Nazim to the policeman deployed at the gate and hence he was allowed to visit the school," the superintendent said. "When the media and BSEK officials arrived, the two panicked and used the back door to leave the school's premises," he added.

At Daffodils Montessori and Secondary School System, the female students were found to be sharing single benches. In many class rooms, more than 20 candidates were busy solving the question paper as thy huddled together in the crammed space. This showed the blatant violation of the rules and regulations of the Board regarding space specifications and student-class ratio. The centre superintendent said that he had more students than the capacity at the school. Blaming the Board Office, he said that it was not his fault and he was trying to facilitate all of them.

Meanwhile, Chairman's Vigilance Officers (CVO) witnessed two unfair mean cases each at the Government Boys Secondary School (GBSS), Sharfabad, near TV Station and GBSS, Block-6, PECHS in the morning shift.

Furthermore, an impersonation case was reported at the New A.K Grammar School, Orangi Town in second shift, during the paper of Chemistry.
