Rawalpindi SSC exams roll number slips problem
20% of candidates still without roll number slips
Rawalpindi, March 22: Mismanagement continues in the Secondary School Certificate (SSC) (Part-I) Annual Examinations
2011 being conducted by the Rawalpindi Board of Intermediate and Secondary
Education (RBISE) because still 20% of candidates could not get their roll
Those who got roll number slips appeared in English paper
on Monday, however, 100 per cent of candidates could not get roll number slips
of practical papers. In the SSC examinations, more than 50% of candidates could
not get roll number slips and they gave papers in an uncertain condition.
Students and their parents said on Monday that they have not
received roll number slips. How could they appear in the examination halls to
attempt English paper without roll number slips, they said. "We are like a
rolling stone wandering here and there to get roll number slips," they said.
When contacted RBISE Controller Examination Professor Abdul
Sattar Ramay, he said that they tried to send roll number slips to all
candidates. "We sent roll number slips to candidates through registered mail as
well as through online system," he said.
He admitted that some
candidates are still without roll number slips, but assured that no one would
miss his or her paper. "Those candidates who have not received roll number slips
should contact the board office, he said. He also admitted that they did not
send roll number slips for practical papers, all candidates would get roll
number slips for practicals till April 1.
A total of 124,254 candidates
are appearing in the annual examinations of class 9th. The total examination
centres are 396 - 171 are for male and 151 for female candidates, while 74
centres are for both males and females. All education boards in Punjab have been
asked to introduce email system thus every candidate, whether of class IX, X, XI
or XII, has to email his or her admission forms.
The bureaucrats who
conceived the idea perhaps were convinced that all students are well-off and
have computers or at least have an access to them. They conveniently forgot that
the majority of our students belong to rural areas where, let alone computer,
there is no electricity.
Under the new dispensation you are required in
the first place to send a hard copy of your admission form duly filled in at the
computer. To whom is it to be sent is anybody's guess. Some say that it goes in
the central office located somewhere in Lahore and supervised by some consultant
of high repute who is incommunicado. If you have a complaint send it through an
email which they say is never replied, let alone acknowledged.
not all. After you have travelled from your hamlet to a city, located an
internet club, paid a sizable amount to the owner to fill in your form and sent
it to the concerned quarter, you have more trouble at hand. After sending the
hard copy you have to go through the old rigmarole, i.e. to send a soft copy to
the relevant board office. Get an admission form as usual. Fill it, attach the
required documents with three photographs, get it attested from someone
authorised to do so, and deposit it in the board office by hand or send it under
registered cover. And in this process do not forget to deposit the prescribed
fee in the nominated branch of the bank.
You need not be an expert in
rocket science to figure out the trial and tribulations students and parents
have to pass through this process. Have the great minds behind this scheme ever
thought of the miserable plight of our villages. Most of them have yet to see
the amenities of modern life. Internet and email is not for them. This is used
by only a very small fraction of those in the cities. Have they realized that by
launching this 'ambitious' project they have opened floodgates of corruption and
Students and parents said that the
Punjab government is trying to close all doors of getting education by
introducing complicated online form system. They said that the majority of
students belonging to poor families could not get roll number slips to appear in
examinations. They warned that like class IX and X, candidates appearing in
class XI and XII examinations would face great difficulties in getting roll
number slips because online system is a 'shit' system, which creates a lot of
hardships for students.
"I was passed senior Certificate 2005 but when i have my result,i found my Certificate with a wrong Identity document,i want to know what can i do?because i try several times in department of education but no "HELP""

The Federation of
All Pakistan Universities Academic Staff Associations had given a one-month

accommodate retired persons. The FAPUASA, he said, considers this action a

retired persons should be removed as soon as possible and no new one should be
