Students suffer as BSEK fails to rectify results

Karachi, Aug 4: Another instance of negligence by the Board of Secondary Education Karachi (BSEK) surfaced when Komal, a minority student, bearing Roll No 733932 of Crescent Grammar School, Ramswami, was declared as absent from her Islamiat paper while the Ethics paper, in which she appeared, was blank.

Similar cases were also reported from DHA schools when a candidate belonging to a religious minority was declared to have passed the Islamiat paper while the column of the Ethics paper was left blank.

The board officials tried to play down these blunders, calling them 'human errors'. Numerous complaints have been lodged with various newspaper offices since the result of SSC Part-II was declared by BSEK. The board has closed all four of its counters set up to rectify the errors that occurred under a computerised system.

The board officials claim that cases received so far pertaining to rectification of 'human errors' in the results of SSC Part-II (Class-X) Science group, have been entertained and amicably resolved resulting in no unpleasant incident reported from any quarter. This, however, is not the case.

On Friday too, students swarmed the Board Office with serious errors in their results. Most of the minority students were declared passed or failed in Islamiat in lieu of Ethics.

Interestingly, the former Controller of Examination Salim Khan was removed from the office just four months ago, when the authorities levelled serious charges of malpractice and corruption against him.

The post of controller of examination is still lying vacant and the annual examinations were held under the supervision of an acting controller of examination. When we tried to contact the Secretary BESK, Asif Pasha and Chairman BESK, Brig Shafiullah Qureshi, for comments, niether was available. The news
