Students want KU and BIEK exams postponed

KARACHI, July 2(The Nation) - The candidates of MA (external) and HSC Part- I and II General Group (Private and Regular) Examination 2007 are suffering from the apathetic behaviour of the examination authorities concerned, as the metropolis had so far received more than 100 mm torrential rains and destructive thunderstorms, claiming more than 250 lives in the last 9 days, but the KU and BIEK examination department did not postpone the examinations.

The KU examination department and Board of Intermediate Education Karachi are holding MA (External) Annual Examination 2007 and HSC Part- I and II General Group (Private and Regular) Examination 2007 respectively, that were started from June 30, 2007.

According to the BIEK, about 52301 candidates would appear in the said examination while total 65 examination centres have been set up, out of them 43 centres were declared for girls and 21 for boys.

However, the Sindh Boards' committees has already decided to award the two percent grace marks in the secondary and higher secondary examinations, in pursuance of the Sindh Governor Dr Ishrat-ul-Ebad Khan proposal to relieve the students in the metropolis.

"Despite the heavy rains in the city on Saturday, the University of Karachi and Board of Intermediate Education Karachi did not postpone the pre-scheduled examinations so far, while the monsoon season, starting from June 23, 2007 with torrential rains and thunderstorms have claimed more than 250 lives of the citizens," Masoma, a candidate of MA, expressed his concern, while talking to The Nation.

She said that the first paper of MA (Previous) scheduled on June 30 (Saturday) at the KU had badly affected by the heavy rains on Saturday.

"The most of the candidates could not attempt the all questions due to power failure and insufficient light caused by heavy rains with dark cloudy weather," she added and demanded the postponement of the MA papers till the weather becomes normal, and said that the first paper should be re-conducted.

Adeel Khan, a student of HSC Part- I General Group (Private), criticized the BIEK examination that was conducting the exams in the harsh weather. He said, "My first paper named Urdu could not be conducted properly due to torrential rains and bad light while power failure made it worse."

"The BIEK should realize the problems of the candidates during such harsh weather. Thousands of candidates are participating in the examination and majority of them reach their examination centers through public transport, which badly affected in the torrential rains.

The power was another factor that usually becomes failure during heavy rains. The postponement of the papers is only solution that can provide an opportunity to the students to prepare themselves for the examinations otherwise desperate would ultimately be increased among the majority of the students," he said.

Talking to us on Sunday, the BIEK Chairman Prof Anwar Ahmed Zai said, "Fowling the decision of Committee of Chairmen (COC) the examination would be held as per its schedule, while in case of any worse weather situation the BIEK will take decision to postpone the examination.

He pleaded that the delay in the examination would cause a hold up in the preparation of the results, while the delay in the examination would ultimately deprive the students in obtaining admissions to other institutions of the country.

On the other hands, the KU examination department on Sunday notified to all concerned that the annual examination of MA final (External) would be start on Monday. According to KU notification about 2760 female candidates and 2405 male candidates will be attending the exams.
