Students plan demo against Federal Board

ISLAMABAD, Aug 22 - Students of different colleges in the federal capital have decided to hold a protest demonstration on August 26 against the Federal Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education for introducing out of course question papers in the recently conducted First Year examination.

Backed by their parents and teachers, the students have constituted an Action Committee to press for their demand of saving the loss of their precious academic year from destruction, only on account of experimentation by the Federal Board high-ups.

It is pertinent to mention here that this year the pass percentage in the First Year result was just 55 and the passed students had also obtained a dismally low percentage, which can land them nowhere in professional education after their F.Sc.

The students lamented that while the FBISE had introduced new type of course, no arrangement was made to educate the students according to the new syllabus.

According, the question paper contained questions, which were not included in their books at all. Secondly, they say, while standard of success for all boards across Pakistan was equal, it was only the Federal Board, which put its students to such harsh experimentation.

It is also pertinent to mention here that it is the very Federal Board, which has again combined the course for Class 9th and Class 10th students after taking examination on annual basis for several years, thus once again overburdening the students to memorise their two-year course in one go. This is contrary to the modern trend of semester system, which is in vogue all over the world to reduce the burden of students.

The teachers and parents of the students are equally concerned about the future of their children as they are being made the scapegoat of the experimentation of non-professional bureaucrats in the most sensitive field of education. The students said that the new pattern of question paper was introduced in the First Year examination despite the assurance to the contrary given to them by Chairman Federal Board.

The embarrassment caused by the poor marking of examination paper has even caused such a severe mental shock to the students that during a survey there came complaints a number students seeking psychiatric treatment to regain senses.The nation
