Secondary Education allowed all candidates having no roll number slips to take

However, this created further problems as examination centres received more
students than the prescribed strength and the candidates had to solve the paper
sitting in the open.
A visit to different examination centres by this correspondent revealed that
a good number of candidates, both males and females, had reached the centres
either without roll number slips or with faulty ones.
Many candidates having faulty roll number slips did not know where to go when

controller directed all centre superintendents to accommodate the

Boys appearing in the exam at Government Khan Public High School, National
Market, were forced to sit on the ground to solve the paper.
An official of the board blamed the online registration system for creating
problems for both the students and the BISE. Desiring not to be named, the
official said the online data was controlled by the project director, Dr Mahid
Naeem, in Lahore and the board could not verify the information forwarded by the
students on time.
The candidates could not understand the system as in many far-off areas
internet facility was not available.
He said majority of candidates did not contact the board till late as they
expected their roll number slips would reach their school or home.

also issued printed roll number slips but the candidates failed to collect them.
He said the board officials had corrected the errors as soon as they received
them but majority of candidates contacted the BISE offices late. Still all

Mismanagement makes exams doubtful
Rawalpindi: Mismanagement and failure on the part of the concerned authorities in issuance of roll number
slips to students appearing in annual examinations of Secondary School
Certificate (SSC) made the process doubtful. Moreover, on Monday the Punjab
government had to allow all students to appear in the examinations without any
roll number slips making the affair free for all.
However, many students
still claim that they could not appear in their English paper on Monday due to
having no roll number slip.
Exchange of harsh words witnessed at all
examination centres because superintendents of concerned examination centres
were not allowing candidates because of lesser number of seats in halls. The
students on the other hand were wandering here and there to appear in
examination without roll number slips.
The helpless students were seen
running from one centre to another to find out space for sitting but failed.
Upon approaching the board office they were advised to approach
Students carrying telephone sets in their hands were witnessed
contacting superintendents and the board officials. The board authorities had
issued notification that all students could freely appear in examinations
without roll number slips.
It is learnt that dozens of students
missed their English paper on Monday while many of them could not appear just
because of the change of the timing of the paper from morning to evening at the
It is also learnt that taking advantage of the panic
situation, many unauthorised persons appeared in English paper in place of
candidates. In the state of tension hundreds of students blocked Benazir Bhutto
Road and strongly protested against the board management. Some of the students
threatened to commit suicide if their time is wasted. They said that how it is
possible for them to appear in examination without any proof (roll number
When contacted Rawalpindi Board of Intermediate and
Secondary Education (RBISE) Controller Examinations Professor Abdul Sattar
Ramay, he said that students could appear in English paper without roll number
slips. He said that they had issued manual roll number slips to 99 per cent
candidates. The candidates would appear in other papers after showing their
manual roll number slips from Tuesday, he said.
He admitted that they
changed timing of the paper at the eleventh hour. He said that all students
would appear in English paper if candidates faced any difficulty they should
call him and the superintendents of examination centres would be directed
accordingly. "The chairman and I myself are continuously visiting all centres to
address problems of candidates," he said.
The superintendent of an
examination centre on the condition of anonymity said that 'online'
system has destroyed the whole education structure. Punjab government should
cancel examination and restart papers after completing the process of sending
roll number slips to candidates, he said.
"How I could check persons who
are appearing in place of actual candidates and handle hundreds of students at a
time? How teachers would check papers without proper roll numbers?" he
Students accompanied by their parents
complained that the board officials had promised to provide roll number slips
till Sunday night "but we are wandering in the centres to appear in the English
paper." Nazish Hussain, a girl student, said that the superintendent of the
examination centre informed us about the change in timings of the paper at the
eleventh hour. How we could go back home alone in this situation, she asked.
Muhammad Imran, a student, said, "I could not get roll number slip while the
superintendent is not allowing me to appear in the English paper. The telephone
number of controller of examination is continuously busy," he
said. The news
