Punjab new exam marking system | Youngest Microsoft Certified

Punjab devises new exam paper marking system
Rawalpindi, July 27: All the eight education boards of the Punjab have decided to start a new paper marking system in the province, aiming to get rid of the Booti mafia and to make the marking of papers transparent. The decision to this effect was taken in a meeting of the boards' chairmen, held here the other day.

The system would be implemented from the examinations of Class 10 and Intermediate classes next year. According to the old marking system, a teacher had to mark one entire paper, but in the new system, one teacher would mark only one question of a paper. Similarly, 10 teachers would mark the paper having 10 questions and the 11th teacher would calculate the total marks. According to the new system, only senior teachers would mark the papers.

BISE to challenge LHC verdict
Multan: The governing body of the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (BISE), Multan, in a meeting on Friday decided to move the Supreme Court against the decision of the Lahore High Court (LHC), Multan bench, that directs the board authorities to call 56 candidates for interview for 39 posts of junior clerks instead of 38 candidates.

About 18 applicants filed a petition in the LHC stating that they appeared in a typing speed test held on May 23 for the posts of junior clerks and a test conducting committee declared them successful.

A list of 56 applicants was announced by the board administration, however, the board chairman postponed the interviews to be held on May 25 "due to political pressure" and set June 1 for interviews besides calling the candidates whose typing speed was 30 words per minute for interview.

They said the board administration had prepared three lists with 38, 56 and 101 candidates. They said that the administration had dropped their names to make sure the appointment of the "recommended" 38 candidates.

On July 17, the court directed the board administration to entertain the 56 candidates.

Board chairman Prof Nawaz Javed said that there was no record of application and typing test of the petitioners and calling these petitioners for interview would be an act of out of way.

Teachers rap training college shifting
Bahawalpur: A number of teachers have protested the provincial government's move to shift the pre-service/in-service government training college from Bahawalpur to Layyah.

In this connection, a delegation of the Punjab government schools senior staff association called on Education Secretary Nadeem Ashraf and conveyed him their concern.

A delegation member, Umar Farooq said that the teachers informed the secretary that the college had been working here for the past 34 years and had imparted training to thousands of teachers belonging to the Bahawalpur division.

In 2006, the institute was upgraded as the University of Education, Lahore, sub-campus where BEd and MEd classes were introduced but it was shifted to Vehari for the reasons best known to the decision-makers, thus, depriving the local students of the facility.

Now the training college had been shifted to Layyah and it would make things difficult for the local teachers who were already facing financial stringency. The college teachers and staff would be transferred to Layyah, which would add to their problems.

It is learnt that the education secretary gave a sympathetic hearing to the delegation's arguments and assured it that he would take up the matter with the higher-ups. Dawn
