KU examinees not to sit in makeshift tents any more
Karachi, June 15: About 18,000 students appearing in the MA (Previous) and MA (Final) Examinations-2008, which begin on June 15 (today) will get a pleasant surprise when they reach the University of Karachi (KU). They will be more comfortable as they have been accommodated in classrooms with fans and new furniture and not in the tents as was customary till the previous year.
Controller of Examinations Dr Nasiruddin Khan, a Professor in the Department of Mathematics has revitalised the sitting arrangements in the examination with the motto that "students are very precious for the society and they should be given due recognition".
Dr Khan expressed his determination that will see a congenial environment for the students when they come to take their examinations. "We have arranged cold drinking water for the examinees along the route from all the university gates to the different departments. A KU shuttle will be there to ferry the students back and forth and the KU Examination Department staff will be there to guide the students", he proudly informs.
To facilitate the examinees, Dr Khan had asked for and got all the classrooms in the newly-built building in the Faculty of Arts. New fans and furniture were also bought in the endeavour to end the practice of examinees sitting in the make-shift tents in the scorching heat without fans and drinking water. Even the KU doctors and engineers and other essential staff will be on the duty to meet any eventualities.
"We have initiated the construction of the 'Examination and Multifunctional Complex' near Maskan Gate.
It will be a huge complex that will serve as an examination centre and as marriage halls when there are no examinations. This will enable the external students to enter the KU and enter the complex without having to roam the campus looking for departments. It will have all the facilities including 15 washrooms", he said.
At the same time, Dr Khan intends to deal strictly with cheaters and those found impersonating others. "I had asked for more powers from the Vice-Chancellor and he has agreed to my request. Now we will take action against such persons. I do not agree with the practice of fining Rs5,000 and letting the offenders go. We will file an FIR against them. We will not allow such people to drag the university's name in the mud", he says firmly.
There are 4,721 male and 6,785 female students for MA Previous while 7,696 male and 10,250 female students are appearing in the MA Final examinations. The university has established 15 centres for the male and 14 for the female students.
