2pc additional marks: approval awaited

Karachi, July 10: The proposal to give an additional two per cent marks to students of Matric and Intermediate boards is still awaiting approval. The proposal was made considering that due to prolonged power failures students could not prepare and were also confused about the date of the exams, as the government made no announcement,

It was also learnt through reliable sources that Karachi would be the only board where the additional two percents marks will not be awarded subject wise, but be included in the overall results. Due to this, students of Karachi would be at a disadvantage whereas the students of other boards of Sindh, Larkana, Mirpurkhas and Sukkur, especially those who were failing, would automatically benefit. Highly-placed sources said that this discriminatory attitude itself speaks of the situation.

The results of Hyderabad, Sukkur and Mirpurkhas boards had already been prepared and were only awaiting the governor's approval for additional two per cent marks, thus delaying the announcement of results, which would ultimately affect the beginning of the next academic session.

It is significant to note that a meeting of the Chairmen of Educational Boards was held in Larkana last week, which gave informal approval of the proposal of two per cent additional marks and forwarded it to the governor of Sindh, Dr Ishrat-ul-Ebad, who also approved of it, but informally. The news
