SSC (Science) exam results
Karachi: The committee formed to implement the Centralised Admission Policy (CAP) for 2009 will begin work on admissions to Class XI in the city's 123 government colleges shortly after the results of the Secondary School Certificate Part-II (Class X), Science group, annual examinations-2009 are announced.
The Board of Secondary Education Karachi (BSEK) is set to declare the results on Wednesday (July 15).
Under the Centralised Admission Policy (CAP), which was introduced in 2000 by the provincial education department, admissions to Class XI continued to be given in both government colleges and higher secondary schools of the city till 2007.
However, higher secondary schools were taken out of the purview of the CAP in 2008, allowing heads of such institutions to formulate their own policy vis-à-vis admission to Class XI, sources said, adding that admissions to higher secondary schools of the city for the ensuing academic session would again be the prerogative of their heads.
Sources in the education department said that the CAP for 2009 would remain the same as that of the previous year. The committee, which the department had already formed to oversee the process of admissions to Class XI in the city's colleges, would begin its work once the Class XI (Science group) annual result is announced by the BSEK.Your Comments

Need for containing overcrowding of classrooms stressed
Karachi: Describing the practice of allowing students to attend classes at those colleges where they are not given admissions as "unlawful" and "an act of favouritism", two senior professors of government colleges have urged the authorities concerned to stop the practice as it "violates the spirit of the Centralised Admission Policy".
The college professors, who are also members of the Sindh Professors and Lecturers Association (SPLA), said that the Centralised Admission Policy (CAP) committee should also ensure that admissions to the first year classes in the next academic session be given strictly in accordance with the existing capacity of colleges.
To avoid overcrowding in classrooms, the number of students in each section of a class should not exceed the limit of 80 students per section, they said.
A senior teacher at the DJ Govt Science College, Prof Iftikhar Azmi, who is also the additional secretary of the Sindh Professors and Lecturers Association (SPLA), said that they recently held a meeting with the provincial additional secretary of education, Ramzan Awan.
Prof Iftikhar said that Mr Ramzan had agreed that since there was no provision of allowing students to attend classes at colleges where they were not enrolled, the CAP committee should refrain itself from issuing such permission.
Last year, Prof Iftikhar said, several hundreds students had been allowed to attend classes at colleges of their choice by the provincial directorate-general of colleges.He said that such an act had violated the spirit of the CAP, according to which admissions were supposed to be given purely on a merit basis.
He claimed that the practice had only benefited the children of ‘influential people'.
Saying that the admission committee which was formed last year under the Centralised Admission Policy had accommodated more students in colleges as than their capacity, he added that 22,000 admissions were given last year in class XI (first year) in the commerce group alone, whereas only 14,000 seats were available in all commerce colleges of the city. Similarly, 3,000 to 4,000 extra admissions were given in first year pre-engineering sections of colleges, he said, adding that such acts on the part of the last year's CAP committee had caused overcrowding in classrooms and badly affected the student-teacher ratio.
Emphasising the need for opening more commerce colleges in the city and additional sections for pre-engineering students, he said that it was beyond his comprehension as to why the education department was reluctant to open some colleges in the city when their buildings and construction works had already been completed.
When asked how the education department would be able to open more colleges to overcome the problem of overcrowding in classrooms when there was an acute shortage of teachers, he said that SPLA had already requested the chairman of the Sindh Public Service Commission to arrange interviews of college teachers on a pri
ority basis, so that the recruitment process of college teachers could be accomplished before the commencement of a new academic session which was scheduled to begin on August 1.
Another senior teacher at the Adamjee Govt College, who endorsed the views expressed by Prof Iftikhar Azmi, said that last year the CAP committee had accommodated more than 80 students in each section of a class. Prof Ather Mirza said that this was a violation of rules.
According to the rules, the student-teacher ratio in a class should 1 to 80, he said.
But the CAP's committee not only accommodated more than 80 students in a class but also gave permission to a large number of students to attend classes at colleges where they had failed to get admissions under the merit-based Centralised Admission Policy.

Candidates voice concern at exam centre outside Thatta
Thatta: Twelve candidates of MEd have voiced concern against establishing their examination centre at Malir, Karachi. The students, affiliated with Study Centre Government Girls High School Thatta, told reporters here on Tuesday that the examination was to commence from July 17 and they would have to go for eight consecutive days at some academic institution in Malir Karachi.
They said that after completing their four semesters regularly for 18 months at the study centre in Thatta, the examination centre at Malir was unjustified.
They expressed concern over uncertain law and order in Karachi and said expenses of transportation would be unbearable, particularly for the women candidates.
When contacted, Ms Uzma Panhwar, director of the department of distance continuous computer programme of the Sindh University, said that according to the criterion, 35 MEd students were mandatory to establish a study centre. But 31 students had got admission in the study centre and later 11 left for unknown reasons, she said.
Twelve tutors had been employed, four for each semester to teach students, she said and added that for 20 students, the examination of thesis at a small place like Thatta was next to impossible.
But the candidates said Ms Panhwar had made it an issue of her ego to send Thatta students to a far-off Malir college.
They also said only Hyderabad and Thatta centres had been mentioned in the centres manual and not Malir.
They claimed that the examination slip they had received from the department also mentioned Thatta centre.
Students have appealed to the vice chancellor of Sindh University to take notice of their problem and establish an examination centre in Thatta. Dawn
