Complaints of cheating at the exam centres continued
to pour in the newspaper offices from a number of callers. Sources in the BSEK
conceded that its vigilance teams had been facing difficulties in discharging
their duties effectively owing to the highhandedness of certain "pressure
groups" who were meddling in the affairs of the board and making attempts to
influence the staff posted at the centres.
They said that the vigilance
teams were facing such problems mostly at the centres set up in the government
schools of Landhi, Korangi, Orangi, Lyari, New Karachi, Pak Colony, Baldia and

disturb candidates and trouble staff at various examination centres on Monday.
Thousands of candidates were seen perturbed over the absence of electricity most
of the time during the paper amid hot and humid weather

papers and feared poor results.
A BSEK official, commenting on the issue,
said that the board had repeatedly requested the Karachi Electricity Supply
Company (KESC) to exempt examination centers from load-shedding but the requests
had remained unheeded so far.
"The KESC seems not ready to even change
the timings of the load-shedding to ensure an uninterrupted power supply from
9am to 12 noon until the examinations are over," he lamented.
a spokesman for the BSEK said that exams on Monday remained peaceful with no
untoward incident having been reported from any centre. Dawn
Karachi: The Secondary School Examination Board should take necessary steps against
cheating which has become rampant during examinations. The future and prosperity
of the country depends on its educational development and the examination board
has to be effective for that. Unfortunately, in Pakistan the system is getting
weaker day by day. People are caught cheating but no action is taken against
them to deter others that might want to emulate them. To overcome this problem,
strict and immediate action should be taken against people involved in cheating. -Rafia Rustam, via e-mail (The Nation)

Students forced to buy expensive books
Karachi: Parents are compelled to buy expensive text books, from class one

Textbook Board (STB) has been failed to make available the textbooks in the

parents to purchase books of private publishers, while these books are being
sold on double prices than STB.
Around 90 per cent private schools are using
textbooks of private publishers.
On the other hand, the board has increased
the prices of the said books by 30 to 35 per cent, despite its failure to
produce books in the market on time.
Nayyer, a complainant and father of
three, said that his children were studying in a private school situated in
Gulshan-e-Iqbal and he had spent around Rs2,800 to buy copies of my three
children, studying in JP-2, class-III and class-VI. These expenses are beyond
from the expenditures of textbooks, he added.
Owners of private schools are
of the view that they are forced to purchase books of private publishers due to
unavailability of books, published by STB, in the market.

in the market, while text books of Mathematics in Urdu from class I to VII are
not available in the market.
