Class XI (Science) students merit list

Karachi secondary eduation board stopped preparing merit list
Karachi, Dec 20: The fate of the centralised admission policy for admissions to first-year classes in the public sector colleges of the city hangs in the balance as the Board of Secondary Education Karachi, which used to prepare merit lists of candidates to facilitate the centralised admission committee's placement work, has excused itself from undertaking this task from the next academic session.

Citing an inordinate delay in the announcement of the results of Class IX (Science) annual examinations-2009, an official of the BSEK in a letter sent to the provincial director-general (colleges) has stated that the board will not be able to undertake the work assigned to it by CAC for admission to first-year classes in the city's government colleges in the future. The reason for the inability it cited was that the task consumed a lot of time of its many officials and, as a result, the BSEK's actual duty of preparing and announcing results of various examinations of Class IX and X suffered.

Expressing their concern over the BSEK's reported letter through which it had expressed its inability to perform its CAP job, sources in the education department said the BSEK being an examining body for the secondary school certificate examinations could not excuse itself of such a responsibility because no other organisation could be assigned this task.

Commenting on the BSEK's refusal to undertake the task of placing matriculates in government colleges on behalf of CAC, the Sindh Professors and Lecturers Association's city chapter's secretary, Prof Iftikhar Azmi, said that the BSEK could not excuse itself of this duty as it had been obligatory on the board since the introduction of CAP for the city's public sector colleges in 2001.

Asked if the fate of CAP seemed uncertain if the BSEK stuck to its decision, he replied in the affirmative.

He, however, suggested that senior officials of the provincial education department should immediately take up the CAP issue with the controlling authority of the BSEK, or else CAP would cease to exist and the old system of getting admissions to the city's prestigious colleges, based on favouritism and nepotism, would reemerge.

43rd CPSP convocation
Karachi: Some 680 candidates who have been successful in the 2008 examination of the College of Physician and Surgeon Pakistan (CPSP) were admitted to college qualification in the 43rd convocation held here.

Of the 680 candidates, 423 were admitted to fellowship and 257 to membership of the CPSP.

Speaking at the convocation, health professional underlined the need for more doctors to combat the growing diseases burden in the country.

They also underscored the need for training more specialists in the medical profession.

The former principal of the King Edwards Medical College, Prof M. Akhtar Khan, was the chief guest.

Prof Khan praised the role of the CPSP in producing professionals and specialists in the country.

"It certainly is not easy to resist the temptation of securing funds from the government, which usually are anchored with some sort of compromise on the policies and autonomy of an institution. As a result the CPSP has not only emerged as a prestigious academic institution, but also one of the very few robust, organised, self-reliant and self-sustaining institutions of the country," he added.

He said training and examinations of the CPSP are compatible and comparable with those used by Royal Colleges of UK and other centres of excellence of the world and it gives the CPSP an edge over all other countries in the region as no other developing or Muslim country has an institution using such rigorous frameworks.
