Admissions process hits another delay

Karachi, Aug 7: Admissions to government colleges which started under the Centralised Admission Policy (CAP) on Monday are sure to be delayed as the Board of Secondary Education Karachi (BSEK) has yet to issue marks sheets to the students of SSC Part II Science - a compulsory requirement for the submission of admission forms to the designated bank branches.

According to the schedule, BSEK was to issue marks sheets from August 15 and the entire process of distribution should have been completed by August 19, as stated by Acting Controller of Examination Bizatullah Khan. This means that the marks sheets in question will take another couple of days to be delivered to candidates, commented a senior educationist.

The BSEK was already under tremendous pressure owing to its blunders during the SSC Part II Science results, in which failed students were declared passed and vice versa, and several students were declared absent from papers they had appeared in.

Under these peculiar circumstances, the mark sheets for these students are yet to be compiled by the BSEK. The procedure is going to take another 15 days as deliveries have to be made town wise when, in actuality, they should have been delivered days ago so that the students could have applied for admissions to colleges on time.

The CAP had announced August 21 as the date for submission of forms. The BSEK will obviously be unable to produce the necessary updated documents to the students by this date.

This mess will, in turn, affect the entire education system with nobody taking responsibility for the blunders. One educationist is of the opinion that the daily changes taking place in the system are the root of the adversity affecting the entire sector.

Although results for the general group were announced a month earlier, marks sheets are yet to be distributed - because they were published on Monday. As a result of this, distribution will start from August 16 which is sure to interfere with the ongoing centralised admission process.

At present board officials are busy scrutinising SSC Part II papers of both the general and science groups, said Bizatullah Khan Acting Controller of Examination.

According to the BSEK, mark sheets for the science group have been sent for publication and would be distributed from August 15 onwards. The town-wise dates for delivery of marks sheets to schools are August 15 for the District Central, August 16 for District West, August 17 for South, August 18 for East and August 19 for District Malir.
