FBISE FSc papers | KEMU VC violates seniority
FBISE FSc papers selling like hot cakes
Islamabad, May 14, 2008: The very first paper of Chemistry of HSSC Part I examination
under the auspices of Federal Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education
(FBISE) was open to all and sundry in the market before it started here
It is learnt that the Chemistry paper was leaked out two days
before and the federal board taking notice of the incident changed the paper
well before a day but all the efforts proved futile as the changed paper was
also partly leaked out by the certain mafias active to undermine all the efforts
of the board to keep the secrecy.
It is learnt that the parts of the
Chemistry paper were available in the market and the students and even their
parents were in the run to obtain the set of questions in the paper, which
started at 2 p.m. and its parts were on the sale at about 8a.m on
According to the sources and information gathered certain mafias
were involved in the leakage of the federal board papers, as they adopted a
novel way that the whole paper was not leaked out rather portions of the paper
were given to those who made payment in this regard. The desirous students
contacted the mafia people at certain mobile phone numbers and they were
directed to give payment to the person they named at a point which they
continued to change to maintain their secrecy. The certain persons received
payment and the cell number of the student. Afterwards, the student received
message containing questions, which were set in the paper. This practice
continued during the Matric examinations without any check and now the same
mafia is active in the FSc Part-I examination.
When the federal board
officials were contacted in this regard they at first refused to comment.
However, a senior official, on condition of anonymity, put the whole blame on
the bank mangers where papers were kept before they were delivered to the
relevant superintendents of centres. He said that certain centre superintendent
in connivance with the bank manager leaked the paper well before it
He maintained that no board official was involved in this crime
as they were all well paid and could not put their jobs at stake. He accepted
that the board had received information regarding the leakage of the paper and
took prompt action and changed the paper kept in the bank lockers.
professors and lecturers of the federal colleges were surprised that different
students of their classes contacted them in the morning asking to explain the
same questions on telephone. Their surprise increased manifold when they saw
that the same questions were set in the Chemistry paper. The same situation
remained during the Matric exams particularly regarding the 9th Class.
was called by five students of my class in the morning today (Tuesday) asking me
to explain the questions," a senior lecturer of a model college of Islamabad
told this scribe. He said, "later, when I perused the Chemistry paper I found
the same questions were set in Section B and C of the paper."
Many of the
teachers when approached expressed their astonishment as what was going on in
the federal board. They commented that it was just to play with the future of
the brilliant and hard working students.
"thats not fair at all ..we kept on studying lyk idiots nd still then we werent able to cmolete the papar as it ws too lengthy...and datz su very SAADDD!!!! serious action should be taken!"

KEMU VC violates seniority order
Lahore: King Edward Medical University, Lahore, Vice Chancellor Prof Dr
Zafarullah Khan has appointed Dr Mahmood Shaukat, professor of paediatric
surgery, as registrar and Dr Shabbir Bhatti, professor of pharmacology, as
controller of examinations till further orders against the order of
Earlier, Principal Medical Officer (PMO) Dr Manzoor Alam and
Additional Principal Medical Officer (APMO) Community Medicine Department Dr
Akhtar Lang were holding additional charge of registrar and controller of
The VC had earlier invited applications from
the teaching faculty to fill the posts lying vacant as a result of transfers or
termination of services under reversal of the orders of contractual
reemployments in the university. On the VC's call for applications, senior
members of the teaching faculty applied for the posts of registrar and
controller of examinations. However, in a surprising move, the VC took the
decision and handed over additional charge of registrar to Prof Mahmood Shaukat
and additional charge of post of controller examination to Prof Shabbir Bhatti
till further orders.
Besides, Dr Asif Hashmi, an associate professor of
neurosciences, is also given the additional charge of additional controller of
The KEMU officials said that the order of seniority was
violated in the appointments of registrar and controller of examinations as top
three on the seniority list were Prof Dr Muhammad Akram, dean of Basic Medical
Sciences, Prof Dr Attiya Khalid, professor of Anatomy, and Prof Dr Azhar Hameed,
professor of ENT, in the university.
Prof Dr Attiya Khalid, the second
most senior professor in the university, was also one of the applicants for the
post of registrar but she was not called even for interview in violation of the
merit and seniority, while Prof Mahmood Shaukat and Prof Shabbir Bhatti, who
were far below on the seniority list within the university were appointed. The
officials said that Prof Mahmood Shaukat, Prof Shabbir Bhatti and Dr Asif Hashmi
would continue to perform their own duties with additional charges of the new
posts and if they had been appointed on regular basis they would have to
relinquish their posts of professor of paediatric surgery and professor of

unilaterally postponed the KEMU Convocation, 2008, for an indefinite period
without assigning any reason. Earlier, the Academic Council had unanimously
approved to hold the KEMU's first convocation in almost 12 years on June 7,
2008. Prof Dr Javed Akram was made the organizing secretary of KEMU Convocation,
The KEMU officials also said that VC had unilaterally reversed the
decision of Academic Council to hold KEMU Convocation on June 7, 2008 without
discussing the matter in the Academic Council.
"The KEMU's proposed
convocation has been cancelled due to political uncertainty in the country,"
they said, adding that there was no point in postponing a purely academic
activity, which was held to honour students with certificates and medals in
recognition of their academic achievements during their studies. It is
unfortunate that convocation of the country's premier institution has not been
held for 10 to 12 years, whereas even private institutions are regularly holding
their convocations to honour their students, they said. Ideally, the convocation
should be held within two weeks of the declaration of results, they
Prof Dr Javed Akram also confirmed that the
KEMU's first convocation in 12 years, which was to be held for two sessions of
2006-07 and 2007-08, had been postponed for an indefinite period. When
contacted, KEMU Vice-Chancellor Prof Dr Zafarullah Khan could not be available
for comments despite repeated attempts at his mobile phone. The News
