First matric results by AKU board

KARACHI, July 6(Dawn): The Aga Khan University Examination Board (AKU-EB) on Thursday released its first composite examination results for SSC, within six weeks of the conduct of the examinations at 22 locations across Pakistan.

Thirty-five per cent of candidates gained grades A-1 and A and 26 per cent Grade B, with an overall passing rate of 78 per cent.

Sakina Aijaz Hussain of Al Murtaza School, Karachi, achieved the overall top position with 90.71 per cent marks. The joint second position holders were Lubna Essa of the ETN High School, Karachi, and Mehwish Azher Javed of the FFC Grammar School, Mirpur Mathelo, each with 89.06 per cent. The third position went to Muhammad Sheraz Ahmed of Tameer-i-Millat School, Mianwali, who secured 88.71 per cent marks.

The examinations were conducted in both English and Urdu mediums and listening skills were assessed in both languages while practicals were conducted in five different subjects.

AKU-EB used residential e-marking in Karachi and Lahore to check the examination papers. Electronic marking and tabulation of results by specially trained examiners makes tight quality assurance possible.

The multiple marking system ensures that a specific question is marked by a single examiner for a large number of candidates, resulting in higher quality grading and thus benefiting the students.

Supplementary examinations will be held from July 26 to allow candidates with one or two subject failures to retrieve their chances of college entry without losing a year of educational progress.
