One book each for four SSC subjects
Karachi: Students of class IX and X of both the public and private schools across Sindh will have one book, instead of two books, for each of the four different subjects - biology, physics, chemistry and mathematics - with effect from next academic session, and the examinations to be held in 2013 would be based on the new books.

This decision was taken at a meeting of the Sindh educational boards' committee of chairmen (CoC), a representative body of all the seven educational and technical boards of the province, held in Hyderabad on Saturday.

Prof Anwar Ahmed Zai, who is the chairman of the CoC as well as the chairman of the Board of Intermediate Education Karachi (BIEK) said that the decision of having one book would help bridge the gap the students of class IX and IX had been facing while studying these subjects at college after passing the secondary school certificate examinations.

He said that since there were many instances where schools used to teach their class IX and X students the contents of only part-I book of these four subjects, thus leaving no choice for such students but to read part-III books of the subjects in their class XI/XII without going through the part-II books of the subjects.

Moreover, this situation had created a problem for all the educational boards which, to help students of class IX and X unaware of the contents of book-II, had been preparing the papers of the subjects by incorporating questions from both parts of the books in such a manner that those who had not been taught book-II of these subjects could also attempt papers without much difficulty.

Asked if the proposed one book of each of the four subjects would be a combination of the existing two books (part-I and part-II) of the subjects, he said the Sindh Textbook Board would publish the books of the subjects for the academic session 2012 and onwards in a manner that it would be containing the approved syllabus of each of the subject in one book of each of the four subjects.

According to Prof Zai, the chairmen of all the seven educational boards of the province had been asked to apprise the examiners of their respective boards that the contents of these papers for the class IX and X annual examinations-2013 must be based on the contents of only one book of these four subjects.

The CoC meeting deferred the Board of Secondary Education Karachi proposal for awarding punishment to the heads of the examination centres and other relevant officers found guilty of reporting bogus unfair means cases as BSEK chairman Anzar Hussain Zaidi could not attend it.

The meeting was told that the Rs100 million tender for the construction of the board of secondary and intermediate education in Larkana, the foundation stone of which was laid by President Asif Ali Zardari in June, had been awarded.

At the outset, the CoC meeting expressed satisfaction over the announcement of the results of all the examinations held in 2011 under the auspices of the educational boards of the province strictly in accordance with their schedule and in a transparent manner. Dawn

Plight of evening students
Karachi: There are various issues which the evening programme students have to face at the University of Karachi. One of the most crucial issues is unavailability of points (KU buses). Though students of the evening programme pay more fees than the morning students, they unfortunately receive no facilities. Also, teachers in the evening shifts don't seem to concentrate on taking classes or delivering lectures.

A student organisation made efforts to resolve the matter concerning transportation for evening students and resultantly, it managed to arrange four points, although they are not enough for the students. Whenever any disturbance or disorder takes place in Karachi, these points are stopped immediately, which creates an extremely unpleasant situation for the students as they come from various areas that are far from the university. Also, students have to pay a lot of money in fares when using public transport compared to KU points that charge lower fares.

When students raise these issues with the KU authorities, they reply that there is no circular or regular law governing the running of points, hence students are left in the lurch.

The lack of proper lighting arrangement on the campus is also a cause of concern for the evening students. There have been instances where students have been looted because of this.

Hence, I would humbly request the authorities concerned to please ensure that enough KU points are run throughout the city, including in the evening, while the availability of lights on the main roads and in the departments on campus must also be ensured. The evening students should be treated in the same way as the morning students are.

Fellowships in 30 disciplines given at CPSP convocation
Karachi: Fellowships and memberships in 30 disciplines and diplomas in the health-care system management were given to over 270 doctors at the 45th convocation of the College of Physicians and Surgeons Pakistan on Saturday.

Most of the candidates who got the fellowships and memberships of the college belonged to the fields of obstetrics and gynaecology, surgery, anesthesiology, diagnostic radiology, cardiology, medicine, ophthalmology, orthopaedic surgery and paediatrics.

Dr Mohammad Adnan Qureshi, an MBBS from the Karachi Medical and Dental College, received two medals (General W.A. Burki gold medal and Prof Syed Muzaffar Hussain medal) for scoring the highest marks in FCPS-II and in his discipline of speciality (haematology).

Addressing the graduates, the chief guest of the convocation, retired justice Rana Bhagwan Das, the chairman of the federal public service commission, said they must look at their graduation not as an ultimate objective but as a stepping stone towards a wider horizon that opened before them.

"More arenas in the medical profession are opening every day, more diseases and disorders are being discovered and more remedies are being uncovered and unfolded - it is, therefore, imperative that this process which commenced with your fellowships is furthered through more and more research and acquisition and application of the latest gadgetry

and technical support," he said. He pointed out to the passing out specialists that the reputation of a person in any field was dependent on his or her professional acumen, which formed its very base, but also on one's behaviour towards one's patients and the profession and the ethical and moral standards one adopted for oneself.

The justice said that he saw many parallels between the judiciary and the medical practitioners - both were governed by the urge to serve humanity, by the need for maintaining and exemplifying the highest standards of ethics and morality and by making judgments that might involve life and death.

"Possibly that is why the public at large is advised to avoid, as far as possible, the courts and the hospitals," he said, adding that wise people could stay away from courts but even the wisest ones could not stay away from people in the medical profession.

Lauding the postgraduate medical education activities undertaken by the CPSP, he said the college had attained high standards of learning, training, research facilities and assessment for its fellowships and diploma programmes with international recognition.

"I am informed that today the college boasts a network of 261 institutes including 111 overseas institutes affiliated to it for imparting training to its registered students and has over 14,500 trainees and almost 2,500 supervisors including 128 working overseas," he said, adding that such landmarks could not have been realised without the dedication of the


CPSP President Prof Zafarullah Chaudhry said the college, established in 1962 as a major institution in the health sector with specific charters, had made a steady progress. "Today CPSP qualifications are widely recognised in the UK and the Arab countries, which is evident from an increasing demand for CPSP fellows and members for employment in these countries," he said.

Saying that education was not in a very good shape in the country, he said that the CPSP was a beacon of hope and a model for institutions of higher learning. "The distinction CPSP has attained among three institutions established in 1962 - CPSP, Pakistan Medical and Dental Council and Pakistan Medical Research Council - is only due to its autonomy and freedom from governmental influences," Prof Chaudhry remarked.

He said the CPSP had given about 19,000 specialists to the country. There were a total 17 campuses across the country, while individuals were being evaluated in over 60 specialties from over 150 institutions within the country and over 100 accredited institutions abroad.

The Karachi convocation was the last of the 45th series of convocations, held in three different cities of the country and the lists of recipients included 356 fellows, 191 members and 13 diploma graduates. Dawn
