Meanwhile, BIEK chairman Prof Anwar Ahmed Zai said here on Wednesday that as many as 19 colleges gave zero per cent results and another 17 showed below 10 per cent results in the examination.

He was taking to newsmen at a ceremony held at the BIEK conference room in the honour of the position-holders. He said the colleges showing below 10 per cent result in the previous annual examination had been issued notices asking them to improve their performance or risk disaffiliation from the board. "If the colleges are the same which had been served notices last year, then the board will have no choice but to suspend their affiliation," he said.

About the board's steps to prevent or curb the use fake answer scripts, he said that answer scripts with water marking and hidden marks, readable only through an electronic device, would be introduced from the academic year 2009.

Prof Zai stated that the pattern of examination papers would also be changed from the next annual examination.

"The new pattern envisages 50 per cent marks for objectives-type questions, 20 per cent for short answers and 30 per cent for descriptive questions," he added.

He also announced that the board would award Rs500 per month to the top 20 students on the merit list for two consecutive years. Director-general (Colle-ges), Sindh, Prof Rafique Ahmed Siddiqui, BEIK controller of examinations Prof Agha Akber Mirza, toppers and their parents were also present.

Toppers say load-shedding undermined their studies
Karachi: Toppers of the Intermediate Science (Pre-medical) group examination on Wednesday bitterly criticised the KESC making their studies extremely difficult by providing no relief in its excessive load-shedding during their examination.

"Our performance in the examination was badly affected owing to the prolonged and frequent load-shedding and breakdowns. In fact, we would have done much better, otherwise," they said while talking to newsmen at a ceremony held here on Wednesday to announce the results.

They were of the view that the Dow University of Health Sciences should conduct the entry test for admission to the DMC and SMC only after completion of the HSC Science (Pre-medical) group examinations. Ailiya Rizvi said her studies during examination were affected by traffic problems in the city, besides disruption in power supply.

She was of the opinion that the credit of a student's excellent performance should not go to his/her institution alone. "Sometimes it is the institution that plays a vital role in inculcating positive traits in students and sometimes it is the students themselves who work hard and study with devotion to gain knowledge," she argued. Ms Rizvi says she studies for eight hours as a daily routine.

Anam Hareem expressed her views on the role of coaching centres in helping students do better in examinations. "There is no harm in joining coaching centres because it has been observed that students of the colleges offering proper and regular academic activities also take tuitions and shine in the examinations."

Mohammad Danish Saleem said that after doing his O'levels, he preferred to join the intermediate system stream because being a local system, it allowed students to understand values of their own society.

A student of a private college, Danish feels that private colleges usually provide a better environment to their students as compared to government colleges. Dawn
