Karachi Intermediate pre-medical results 2012

Girls bag top three spots in pre-medical exam
Karachi, Aug 28: The second part of this year's pre-medical exam was dominated, once again, by girls with all three top positions being won by females.

The results were announced at a ceremony hosted by the Board of Intermediate Karachi (BIEK) here on Monday. Samina Ismail Hirani came in first position with 89.45 percent; Kiran Amin was in second position with 89.27 percent, while third position was won by Kinza Murtaza who scored 88.72 percent.

All three girls are students at the Aga Khan Higher Secondary School, whose students also took the seventh and the tenth positions. "We have made history. Never before has one college won all three positions. It is a wonderful day for Aga Khan Higher Secondary School," said Shahina Ali Raza, the school's principal.

"At our school each child has to take part in one of the nine societies that we have, hence they learn to compete in an increasingly competitive world," she said.

Only 9,317 of the total 16,737 candidates passed, which is pass percentage of 55.

During the ceremony Anwar Ahmed Zai, Chairman BIEK, said that the position holders were the guests of honour. He stated that though the results were ready by the 27th of Ramazan, the board had decided against announcing them, "As Eid for those who failed would have been affected".

This year the pictures on enrollment cards were scanned and not pasted on the forms manually with glue. "In the coming year we plan on doing the same thing with admit cards. A computerised system helps detect fraud. The scanned pictures were the only reason we were able to detect 108 fake applicants with morphed matric mark sheets this year."

"This year 70 percent girls and only 30 percent boys appeared for their pre-engineering exam. The planning authorities should pay attention to this grave issue because in the next five years there might be a dearth of doctors in the country," said the chairman.

He appreciated that the Pakistan Medical Council had taken notice of the issue for the first time. "I do not mean to say that the girls' who get admission on merit should be cut back, but an equal number of boys should be admitted."

Meanwhile, the top three position-holders, when asked if they would pursue a career in medicine, replied in the affirmative.

"I want to become an oncologist," said Samina Ismail Hirani. She says her inspiration is her parents, both of whom are doctors.

"I think girls study harder than boys, and that is why they succeed. I don't know what people mean by cramming, there are some things that one has to learn in order to pass an exam," she said.

"I want to become a cardiologist and serve humanity," said Kiran Amin. "I want to prove this male dominated society that girls can out do boys in every field."

"I think the curriculum in our schools should be improved, and that concept based education, rather than cramming and rote learning, should be promoted," said Kinza Murtaza.

None of the three girls had taken tuitions. They attributed their success to their parents and teachers. The news

SU reopens as teachers' body postpones boycott
Hyderabad: Sindh University opened on Tuesday after summer vacations and Sindh chapter of the Federation of All Pakistan Universities Academic Staff Association (FAPUASA) resolved to put on hold decision regarding suspension of academic activities in universities in the larger interest of students.

The federation met under the chairmanship of Prof Muhammad Usman Keerio.

The meeting condemned the alleged repressive, intimidating and confrontational attitude of the Sindh government in resolving the issues of universities, which was disrupting academic activities and causing difficulties to students.

The meeting also condemned the SU administration for not plying student points on the very first day of the new academic year. The participants said the VC had already disturbed classes and conduct of examinations of the semester. Now he is trying to delay the new academic session, showing his ill intentions to destroy future of education.

It demanded removal of VC Nazir Mughal and appointment of an in-service VC as per criteria of the Higher Education Commission (HEC), restoration of 11 dismissed teachers of Shaheed Benazir Bhutto University, arrest of the killers of Prof Channar and other slain students, restoration of student unions and improvement in the internal security in universities, removal of retired personnel from universities, allotment of land for housing schemes and enhancement of higher education budget.

FAPUASA's Sindh chapter also decided to hold weekly demonstrations outside the Karachi and Hyderabad press clubs and hold general body meetings in each university to update university teachers on current situation.

If demands are not met in a month, the FAPUASA would be compelled to restore protests after consulting central body of the federation. The SUTA would continue its daily token sit-ins outside the administration block from 12.30pm to 2pm and would liaise with the Save Sindh University & Education Committee (SSUEC) for further struggle On the other hand members of the Save Sindh University & Education Committee - formed at a civil society dialogue on Aug 17 - have handed over a memorandum to vice-chancellor of the Sindh University's office, requesting Nazir Mughal to quit honourably.

The committee members led by Abrar Kazi, Jami Chandio, Zulfikar Halepoto, Punhal Sario, Dr Ashothama and Ayub Shar gathered at the mausoleum of late I.I.Kazi before heading for the VC office.

Kazi said that the VC was not there so they had handed over the two point memorandum to his public relations officer.

According to him, the two points specify clearly that there is turmoil in the university since he took over a year ago, therefore, he should quit honourably.

It has been mentioned in the memorandum that the seat of the VC had its own sanctity because it was held by people like Allama I.I.Kazi and present situation demanded that the VC should resign.

The committee members met SUTA members and urged them to end their boycott of classes.

The meeting was attended by representatives of teachers bodies of Sindh Agriculture University, Mehran University, Quad-e-Awam University, Shaheed Benazir Bhutto University and Sindh University. Dawn
