For O-level students, first stage of re-exam over
Karachi: The first stage of the O-level re-examinations is over. Students enrolled with the Cambridge International Examinations took their Islamiyat and Pakistan Studies Paper-I on Thursday.
The re-exam was scheduled owing to a security breach, which allowed some students in Pakistan to see the question papers of the two subjects when the exam first took place in May, according to the British Council. The second stage of the re-exam – Paper-II of Islamiyat and Pakistan Studies – is scheduled for Friday (today).
"We are positive things went on smoothly this time. Now we can rest assured that our exam results will be fair," said a British Council spokesperson.
Students all over Pakistan sat for their papers at the same time. In Karachi, over 15 exam centres were set up.
Security arrangements were stricter than usual. To ensure that the question paper had not been leaked, the sealed papers were opened in front of the candidates – a customary tradition of the O-level examinations.
"Invigilators were extra strict. They did not let us turn or even look around," said Adeel Akhter, who took his paper at the Dawood Public School.
Students, who until recently were whining for having to study again, took a sigh of relief as the dreaded storm finally passed over.
"It was horrible: just the thought that I will have to pick up my books and study again," said Ali Haider, a student of The City School. "But it's over now. Another day tomorrow and the exams will end."
Since it was a long day for students, who started the day at 8 in the morning and ended it after 5pm, many mothers were seen bringing lunch for their children during the two-hour break.
"There is nothing to eat around this place so I brought biryani, his favourite, for my son," said Mehnaz Ali, a mother sitting in a corridor at the Expo Centre, where the exam was under way.
The initial decision of the British Council had sparked protests from the students as well as their parents. However, when contacted some parents, they appreciated the decision for the re-take.
"At least the results will be fair now. This goes to show how concerned the CIE is about the well-being of their students," said Farah Khan.
Some students planning to go abroad for higher education refused to take the exam, as the two subjects, Islamiyat and Pakistan Studies, are not compulsory for admissions abroad.
The decision for the re-exam was taken in line with the CIE rule that markings for a subject should be spread over a few days so that external factors such as illnesses or accidents do not affect a candidate's performance. The CIE has not charged students for the re-examination. The news
Students irked by loadshedding during exams
Chakwal: Seated in a congested room, Khurram Shahzad wipes the beads of perspiration off his face before writing a few words on the answer sheet. He then waves the answer sheet like a hand-fan, all the while looking at the ceiling fan which stands still. Once again he focuses on writing the answer, repeating the above exercise every few minutes.
This is not the ordeal of a single person.
Candidates writing the Intermediate exams being conducted by the Rawalpindi Board and the matriculation exams being conducted by the Allama Iqbal Open University are facing several hours of loadshedding and scorching heat, while drinking water remains unavailable in examination halls.
The candidates at Government Post Graduate College Chakwal, Government High School and Government Degree College for Women looked perturbed while giving their exams. More time was being spent on wiping the sweat than on solving the question paper.
The authorities concerned had failed to arrange cold drinking water and the provision of generators looked like a far-fetched dream.
The papers are being conducted in two groups. The first group takes the exam at 8:30am, which ends at 11:30am, while the second group starts at 11:30am and ends at 1:30pm.
"My answer sheet got blotted with the drops of sweat falling over it," Khurram Shahzad said. "We could not concentrate on attempting papers and it was very difficult to sit in a congested room during the loadshedding," said another candidate Daud-ul Hassan.
A female candidate, who lives in Fatehpur Village at the border of Chakwal and Jhelum, said, "I traveled 90km, but when I reached the examination hall there was no water and no electricity." She said she could not concentrate on solving the question paper, and feared her results would be adversely affected by the loadshedding.
The education department's personnel deputed at the examination centres are facing the same problems. Zaheer Ahmad, the superintendent at the Government Post Graduate College emphasised the need of changing the academic session. "All exams must be conducted before May when the temperature is still bearable", he said.
When contacted, Spokesperson of Rawalpindi Board Arsalan Cheema said that the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education Rawalpindi could not provide generators due to the shortage of funds.
"We hardly managed the expenses of answer sheets, checking of papers and payments of the staff," he added. Dawn
