Students in a quandary: Board mixes up photographs of boys and girls
Nawabshah, Aug 06: The mixing of photographs on the mark-sheets of Class X
students, both male and female, has left them in a quandary in regard
to their admissions to colleges.
The Board of Intermediate
Secondary Education Hyderabad committed the blunder by fixing wrong
photographs on mark certificates of hundreds of students to the extent
that male candidates bore pictures of female and vice versa.
There was another error wherein bearer's snap was affixed but name of the candidate and stamp of the board missing.

candidates not fulfilling the criteria would be rejected.
Bachayo Bhatti, Headmaster of DC High School said that similar
mistake was committed by the Board last year when mark-sheets of Class
IX were issued by them. However, when approached the Board promised of

enhancing it to 150 from last year's 25, he said.
Headmaster has informed the EDO Education and also written a letter to
the Controller of Examinations and Chairman of the Board for immediate
correction, he said. Ms Nighat Yasmin, Headmistress, Government Girls
High school Nawabshah said that the Board is continuing this practice
since last year and was not ready to bail the students out of this
nightmare despite repeated complaints.

such a climate who in their right mind could think of schools?" she
Wajid seconded those views. "My daughter is in the
kindergarten. In the absence of any clear announcement from the school
management, I went to drop her off at the school on Wednesday only to
find it closed! Couldn't they have intimated us about their decision
beforehand to spare us the confusion? This only shows the utter lack of
coordination among the authorities and the school management."

Shah alleged a cold response from the
"I called the Secretary of Education, Alam
Din Bullo, on Tuesday to inquire about the situation. Bullo said he
would ask the chief secretary and get back to me which he never did. I
was left with no other option but to make the announcement on TV that
the private schools would remain closed on Thursday."

just opened after two months. We cannot allow more days off as it
affects education," he said. When it was pointed out to him that there
had been low turnouts at schools, Bullo said, "Attendance is not an
issue. The main thing is to have the schools open. It is then up to the
parents to send their children to school or not."

Educational institutions remain closed
Karachi: More than 80 per cent educational institutions including
many public sector schools, colleges and universities remained closed
in the city for a third consecutive day on Thursday apparently because
the no vehicles meant for transporting students could not be operated in
the morning hours.
Besides the fear of attacks by miscreants,
closure of many fuel stations and a shortage of fuel at the others which
were opened for some hours on Thursday contributed to the failure to
operate school vans and point buses. A negligible number of public
transport was seen plying in some parts of the city.
three public sector universities in the metropolis - Karachi University,
the NED University of Engineering and Technology and the Federal Urdu
University of Arts, Science and Technology - wore a deserted look on
Thursday as more than 90 per cent of students could not manage to reach
