HSC Part-II Home Economics results announced

Karachi, July 12, 2008: The students of the Ra'ana Liaquat Ali Khan Government College of Home Economics bagged the top three positions in the Board of Intermediate Education, Karachi (BIEK) Home Economics group annual examination for 2008.

The results were announced by the Controller of Examination, BIEK Professor Agha Akber Mirza Friday. The first position was obtained by Bareera Afzal, daughter of Syed Muhammad Afzal Naqvi, while the second position was taken by Rabia Sarfaraz, daughter of Sheikh Sarfaraz Amin. Marium Sheikh, daughter of Salahuddin, came third. All three students are from the same college.

The three position holders, in a joint interview, demanded that there should be a single education board in the country. There should be no 'O' or 'A' levels or Aga Khan Board, as these boards are beyond the approach of the less-fortunate in the country. The prevailing government educational system should be reformed, they opined. The three girls also demanded that the government shut down coaching centers as they are a waste of time and money. No body can gain much from these coaching centers, they said.

They supported the restoration of students unions but these unions should keep away from political and religious parties. The students' union must be for the welfare of students only, they noted.

They expressed their dissatisfaction and annoyance with incessant load shedding, which is a great hindrance in their preparation process, and said that they will continue their education in same subject they have done so well in.

A total of 450 students registered for the examination, while an actual 444 of them appeared in it, out of which 255 passed- 57.43 percent.

The BIEK Chairman, Anwar Ahmedzai, at the result announcing ceremony, said that the results were this time announced 16 days earlier compared to last year. The BIEK is the first board in Sindh to have started announcing intermediate results. "The result of all groups will be announced before August 31, 2008. The process is a lot faster this year because the examinations have been computerized," explained Ahmedzai. Daily Times

Massive decline in BSc enrolment
Karachi: The recently issuance of results of the Bachelors of Science (BSc-Pass) Part-II / Both Parts Annual Examinations 2007 has exposed the inappropriate policies of the Sindh Education Department, as only 4334 candidates out of more than 150 million population of the metropolis got registered themselves into the exams.

These statistics reveals that there is a massive decline in enrolments for BSc examinations than Bachelors of Commerce at the Karachi University (KU), as enrolments of BCom are increasing day by day.

Educationists are of the view that the lack of proper planning, shortage of qualified science teachers and absence of new science subjects at colleges in the city are the main factors causing decline in the BSc enrolments. According to Prof Arif Rizvi, a prominent educationist, said that the only traditional subjects, including biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics etc. are being taught in colleges at the BSc level; students wanted to study more and new subjects that have already been taught at the KU.

Talking to The Nation on the issue, KU Controller Examinations Prof Maqsood Hussain confirmed that there was massive turn down in the registration of BSc, and said that there was dire need to consider such a serious issue by the authorities concerned. He cleared that the university was not responsible for such decline; however, the importance of the science discipline for acquiring degrees could not be ignored.

He said, "According to statistics, a total of 17621 candidates enrolled in BCom Part-I Annual Examinations for Regular, 7682 external candidates registered in BCom Part-I Annual Examinations for External.

Conversely, a total of 8766 candidates enrolled in BCom Part-II / Both Parts (External) Annual Examinations 2007, while 25474 candidates got registered themselves into BCom Part-II / Both Parts (Regular / External) Annual Examinations. These statistics shows that there is remarkable tendency among the candidates towards Bachelors of Commerce."

It is worth mentioning that more than 90 colleges are affiliated to Karachi University, and therefore University of Karachi is an affiliating, examining and teaching body, and hence caters to the teaching requirement of 15 million population of the city. University also arranges examination, result and degrees of about 150000 students other than studying at the campus.

Director General Sindh Colleges Dr Rafique Siddiqui was of the view that the new disciplines, including computer, fashion designing, commerce, finance etc. are the major factors mesmerising the students towards themselves than BSc degree. He said, "We are planning to introduce new subjects at colleges to cater the educational needs of students.
