Intermediate home economics results 2012

Students of Rana Liaquat Ali Khan College bag top positions
Karachi, Aug 01: Only 59.1 per cent of the 269 candidates who appeared for their second year intermediate examinations for home economics managed to pass this year.

This was shared at a ceremony hosted to congratulate position holders of the exam at the Board of Intermediate Office, Karachi, on Tuesday.

All of the three top positions were bagged by students of the Rana Liaquat Ali Khan Government College of Home Economics. The first position was earned by Amna Athar Jafree at 83.4 per cent, followed by Yousra Afzal at 82.4 per cent and Nida Azhar in the third place at 80 per cent.

Only four students received A one grades while 24 received A grades. Most of the result constituted of C grades and below. The pattern of performance remained similar compared to last year, with a high concentration of C grades and very few A one and A grades.

The achievers, during a question and answer sessions, said the classes were regular at their college. "It is important to have regular classes as 70 per cent of the course for home economics consists of practical work," said Jafree.

Azhar commended the steps taken by the board to contain the use of unfair means during exams. "I want to pursue further education in the same field to promote healthy living and nutritious diet in the society because these are the basic ingredients for a complete life."

The young girl also felt strongly for the lack of quality education prevalent in the society. "What we preach is very different from how we act, hence the current situation prevails," she said morosely.

BIEK Chairman Anwar Ahmed Zai, while talking about the progress of measures taken by the board to curb the "cheating culture", said the results achieved had provided sufficient evidence of their commitment in this regard.

"Let it be made clear that students who are caught cheating will not be allowed to reappear for two years."

This year the results, he said, had been announced twenty days prior to the expected date. "For this I appreciate my team of teachers and staff".

The chairman also announced a cash price of Rs500 for students who received top twenty positions. The news
