Girls outshine boys in HSC pre-medical exam
Karachi, Aug 06: Girl students once again maintained their supremacy over boys in the Higher Secondary Certificate Part-II, Science (Pre-Medical) group annual examinations 2009, as they not only bagged all three of the top positions but their pass percentage was also 14.88 higher than that of their male counterparts.

The results declared on Wednesday by the Board of Intermediate Education Karachi (BIEK) showed the overall pass percentage of all candidates (both the girls and boys) was 51.71, which is almost the same as that of last year's batch (51.32 per cent).

However, the overall pass percentage of girls stood at 54.80, as compared to boys, whose overall pass percentage remained at 39.92.

It was for the first time that the BIEK declared the results of the examinations one month and 10 days ahead of the deadline fixed for it by the Sindh education department's steering committee.

Girls also outclassed boys in getting the maximum number of A-1 grades, as of the total 538 candidates (both girls and boys) who obtained A-1 grades in the exams, girls bagged as many as 441 A-1 grades while boys secured 97.

Students belonging to BAMM PECHS Govt College for Women clinched all of the first three positions in the examination.

Anoosha Asma (Roll No. 540831), daughter of Muhammad Waseem, topped the examination by securing 974 (88.54 per cent) out of a total 1,100 marks; Afaf Anis (Roll No. 540826), daughter of Muhammad Anis, clinched second position with 966 (87.81 per cent) marks while Amber Waqar (Roll No. 540827), daughter of Syed Waqar Ahmed, got third position with 963 (87.54 per cent) marks.

Statistics of the results released by the BIEK showed that of the total 8,257 candidates (1,325 boys and 6,932 girls) who were declared successful, in all 538 (3.37 per cent) candidates (97 2.92pc boys and 441 3.49pc girls) got A-1 grades; 2,190 (3.71pc) candidates (329 9.91pc boys and 1861 14.71 girls) secured A grades; 2,724 (17.06pc) candidates (377 11.36pc boys and 2,347 18.55pc girls) obtained B grades; 2,197 (13.76pc) candidates (329 9.91pc boys and 1,868 14.77pc girls) got C grades; 596 (3.73pc) candidates (185 5.57pc boys and 411 3.25pc girls) secured D grades while 12 (0.08pc) candidates (eight 0.24pc boys and four 0.03pc girls) got E grades.

In all 15,969 candidates (3,319 boys and 12,650 girls) appeared in the exam and of them 8,257 (1,325 boys and 6,932 girls) were declared to have passed in different grades.

"It would really help students who give priority to public sector medical colleges if these colleges announce their admission policies at least one year in advance. Medical colleges should also conduct pre-admission entry tests to filter out best available students. However, there is no need to increase the number of seats at government medical colleges, and I doubt if inducting more students would bring about better results." -Anoosha Asma, first position in BIEK Pre-Med

"Seats in public sector medical colleges should increase, as it is not necessary that every person can afford the expensive education being provided in private sector." -Amber Waqar, third position

"All students should come on merit basis and no one should be given preference on quota. Written tests for admissions to medical colleges should not be necessary, as a candidate might have some problem on that particular day.I also think that there is no need for co-education in the sector, and confidence can be built up during house-job." -Afaf Anis, second position.

Karachi: Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Yaqeen Model School System (YMSS), Mirza Mustafa Zaheer, held a press conference at Karachi Press Club on Wednesday. He arrived along with his legal advisor Ali Nawaz and Javed Masood, owner of a YMSS campus located in North Nazimabad, to give his point of view over the current situation of YMSS.

The CEO said that Chairman YMSS Syed Muhammad Hussain has not left the country, adding: "He is in Canada for some medical reasons and he would definitely come back to take charge of his school system".

He said that taking advantage of his (chairman's) absence several former employees have illegally occupied some campuses.

He alleged that Imran, Aamir and others have taken over the administration of the campuses located in Gulshan-e-Iqbal, Block-4, 4-A, North Nazimabad, Block-D, PECHS and Dhorajee.

"The chairman is keen to take back the control of YMSS and he has also assured me that he would be running the matters smoothly," he added.

The CEO alleged that Mufti Din Muhammad, Head of Qura'an Section, has not paid salaries to the staffers and he has cheated YMSS of Rs0.8 million.

An application has been submitted at the concerned police station on behalf of the chairman, adding: "We will further see what action can be taken against the people involved in defaming the name of YMSS".

Talking to journalists, Javed Masood, a landlord, said that he has taken the charge of his building and he would pay all the dues to teachers and non-teaching staff probably this month. "I will also try to get it registered with the authority concerned, and I will visit the office on Thursday (today) in this regard," he added.
