'Composite exams reason for low pass percentage'

LAHORE, Aug 4: "Composite examination system is the main reason for lower percentage of successful students in matriculation examination," Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (BISE) chairman Dr Muhammad Zakariya Butt said.

Zakariya, who was also a member of the Inter Board Coordination Committee, said last year the examination was conducted in par-wise system. He said, "In this system students get more marks as compared to the composite system." He said last year 40 marks were awarded for objective and 60 marks for subjective, but this year 20 marks for subjective and 80 marks for objective were included.

He said, "We are trying to introduce composite examination system, as it is suitable for matriculation students.
