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

enrolled in BCom Part-I Annual Examinations for Regular, 7682 external

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.
