Karachi, Aug 19: The Controller of Examinations of the Board of Intermediate Education, Karachi (BIEK), Muhammad Imran Khan Chishti, on Thursday announced the results of the Higher Secondary School Certificate, Home Economics Part-II, Annual Examinations 2011.

According to the gazette, 175 out of the 264 students who appeared for the exam made the grade and the overall clearance percentage was 66.29 percent.

Insiya Juzer Diwan of Ra'ana Liaquat Ali Khan Government College of Home Economics bagged first position with 984 marks out of total 1200, or 82 percent, while closely followed by her college mate Urooba Nadeem with 982 marks. Wajiha Jamal, also a student of the same college, secured third position with 978 marks, 81.50 percent.

Four candidates scored A-One grades whereas 26 got As in their exams. Furthermore, 42 candidates got Bs while 64 secured C grades. At the bottom of the list, as many as 37 candidates passed their exams with a D grade and two students were given Es.

BIEK Officials said that it would hold a ceremony to honour the highest scoring students after Eid.

The beaming Insiya Juzer Diwan said that she intended to follow a career path in food and nutrition. "Our curriculum covers every aspect of life including science as well as the arts. A Home economics degree helps young girls a lot and it teaches us many things which we can utilise at professional as well as domestic level."

Just as hospitals offer internships to students of the MS programme, many textile factories as well as other establishments offer internships to Home Economics graduates, she said.

Second position holder Wajiha Jamal also evinced interest in the field of food and nutrition. She also expressed the need for the government to increase funding to Ra'ana Liaquat Ali Khan Government College of Home Economics. "The electricity of the college remained suspended for several months due to non-payment of bills," she said.

If the authority concerned paid attention to such issues, students could better focus on their studies. "We do not have gas connections so we had to use gas-cylinders, which are dangerous as well as expensive. Teachers managed the refilling of the cylinders from the college funds, there should still be a proper gas line," she stressed. The news
