Cambridge exam results today
KARACHI, Aug 9: Cambridge University GCE (O- and A-level) results will
be posted August 9 on the British Council website.
"The transcripts will
be dispatched once the results are online and will be available in schools the
following week," said Seema, a British Council representative.
candidates who went through the British Council will be able to check their
results online as well and will receive their transcripts by post by next week.
The O-Level students will then throng A-Level schools for admissions or
colleges. There is more at stake, relatively, for A-Level students who plan to
travel abroad for their undergraduate degrees whose sessions start in
Students who have applied to American universities are calm as
their results will not affect their results. It is a different picture, however,
for students who have applied to the UK and will apply to Australia. "I am
praying that I get two As because in my family everyone is a straight-A
student," said Rummina Shamsi. "And then it's a
matter of a few hours before I shall be a college student."
students have conditional offers from foreign universities. They are especially
worried because if they do not make the grade, their admission could be
cancelled. A-Level student Saad Siddiqui said, "I don't expect to get straight
As but I know that I have done pretty well and I should be getting three Bs
which is an essential requirement for my BA degree from Kings College."
Others tried hard to relax. "I have been obsessing over the results for
more than a week and want to relax a day before it comes out," said A-Level
student Sadaf. Another student Samra, who went to watch a new movie out in
theatres, needs at least a B in Maths for her economics course. "I have just
been lying in bed all the time and am thinking about it," she said.
Another anxious student Raabia said, "Even though I have university
tomorrow, I want to collect the result myself." A student who had sat his Urdu
exam privately said that he was going to spend the night at a friend's house and
check his results early in the morning.
Teachers are also anxious
because the results of their students are a barometer of how good they are at
their profession. Teacher Farooq Parekh is awaiting the results of his students.
"Last year some of our Pakistani students topped in Cambridge examination
worldwide," he said. "We expect our students to carry on the success."
Doubt and anxiety mixed with confidence for others. "I am not sure I did
that well in my English and Urdu general papers but other than that I had Tort,
Criminal and Contract for A-level law and the courses were so appealing that I
expect at least two As this time," said Qurat-u-lain Manzar. Daily times
"need good results for good studiers."
