Lahore Board announced Intermediate exam results, GCU positions

GCU students dominate BISE inter-exam results
Lahore, Aug 16, 2008: Government College University (GCU) students were in the spotlight during the announcement of the results of the Lahore Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (BISE) annual examinations for intermediate classes (11 and 12) on Friday.

*Ahsan Ismail : I want to become an electrical engineer and dream of studying at LUMS. I think the procedure to check exam paper should be improved. I think entry tests are good as they check the students' calibre. Poverty and illiteracy are Pakistan's basic problems. We should find the root causes of suicide attacks and terrorism to effectively eradicate them.

*Maryam Javed : I think our education system is improving and I am satisfied with it. I want to become an electrical engineer and have already gained admission to LUMS. Entry tests should be held, but their percentage of requirement should be reduced and students should not be afraid of them. I condemn extremists because they kill innocent people.

*Waqar Ali : I also want to become an electrical engineer. I don't like the double standards of our education system. There should be uniformity in the country's education system. I think entry tests are an unnecessary burden on the students. Terrorists are deprived people and they can be brought into the mainstream if we address their problems.

*Wardah Malik : I want to become a doctor and want to gain admission to King Edward Medical University (KEMU). The entry tests are a hurdle in the talented students' way of obtaining admission into good colleges. Pakistan's education system should be improved, especially at the matric level. I don't think suicide attackers should be called Muslims because Islam is the religion of peace.

*Affira Atta : I want to become an architect and want a degree in the best institution in this field. We need to improve our education system and bring it at par with international standards. The current system should be abolished because it supports cramming and not learning. Terrorists and suicide attackers are defaming Islam and Pakistan and should be stopped.

*Mariam Baig : The marking system of entry tests is unsatisfactory because it deprives hundreds of students from getting admitted to good colleges. I want to become a doctor and to get admission in KEMU. Our education system should be brought at par with international standards. The government should try to solve the problems of terrorists to end terrorism.

*Hadia Sajjad : The entry test system should be abolished. I want to become an electrical engineer and will try to gain admission in the best institution. Pakistan's greatest problems are extremism and the prevailing political crisis. Both issues are tarnishing our country's name internationally. The government should hold talks with the extremists and solve the issue.

*Sana Qadeer : I want to become an economist and also want a degree in management sciences. The entry tests should be abolished as they ruin 12 years of the students' hard work in just two hours. I am satisfied with our education system, but it can be improved. Terrorism is maligning Muslims and Pakistanis across the world. Daily Times

"the toper of hssc got 1024 marks. in my opinion it was wrong to be soo leanent in marking with the students of lhr board because other boards of punjab are not so leanent and their students dont get enough marks. so when these students who got less marks as compare to lhr board appear in entry test then there is a large gap between there numbers. merit goes so high only because of leanent marking of some boards and eligible student could not occupy the place that they deserve. so all boards should have same criteria of paper checking and there should be only one paper of a perticular exam through out the pakistan."

Humanaties students lose English grades
Lahore: Only 26.24 per cent candidates of the humanities group could pass the intermediate English examination, exposing the declining standard of arts education.

According to the result gazette issued by the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (BISE) Lahore, last year 38.83 per cent private candidates and 67.94 per cent regular candidates passed the English examination. This year only 17.98 per cent of private candidates of humanities group passed this paper while the pass-ratio of regular candidates is 37.56 per cent.

Science group students, however, showed some consistency in their performance in the subject of English. Last year, 97.97 per cent of pre-medical group students (regular) passed English examination while 87.18 private students cleared this exam. This year, 95.45 per cent of regular students passed English examination while the pass rate of private students was 83.10 per cent.

Among pre-engineering group students, 97.30 per cent regular students passed the English examination last year and 81.32 private students cleared this exam. This year, the pass rate of regular students is 92.03 and that of private students is 82.25 per cent.

A comparative study of Science Group and Humanities Group shows that science students usually score higher than humanities group students in English examination.

Sabahat Hussain Naqvi, the former incharge of the Department of English Language and Literature, Government MAO College, said that arts students performed poorly because they were neglected despite the fact that arts studies were as important as sciences.

He said that the pass rate of arts students should be higher than of science students as English was one of the major subjects for them. "But the situation is opposite here," he said adding that "special attention must be paid on humanities group students".

'BISE refuses Rs .2m award to disabled girl'
Lahore: PML-Q parliamentarian Ayesha Javed on a point of order in the Punjab assembly has alleged that Lahore Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (BISE) has not provided Rs 200,000 to a female disabled student despite a promise by the chief minister.

She was of the view that Chief Minister Mian Shahbaz Sharif had invited the disabled female student who got position in BISE exams to the Chief Minister's House where he had announced Rs 200,000 for her as a reward.

Ayesha Javed alleged that the Director General Public Relations department was pressurising the family of the girl to give a statement to the media that she had received the amount but the girl had refused to give such a statement.

She claimed that the Lahore BISE officials had conveyed to the family of this female student to receive a cheque of Rs 10,000, as they did not have sufficient amount.

Responding to her allegation, law Minister Rana Sana Ullah Khan was of the view that it was not possible on the part of BISE officials to deny the amount to the girl.

However, he assured the House that he would look into the matter and would ensure the provision of promised amount to the female student. Rana Sana Ullah Khan further announced that Chief Minister Mian Shahbaz Sharif has announced to award Rs 200,000 to all the students who got top positions in FA/FSC examination. The News
