Teachers' recruitment test on 10th
Karachi: The written test for the recruitment of high school teachers (HSTs) for government schools of the Karachi region will now be held on May 10 at the National Stadium.
The test was earlier held on April 24 but it was cancelled by Sindh University's testing service as it was marred by mismanagement and disturbances when candidates who were not issued admit cards were told by organisers that their test would be held once the test of those having admit cards was over.
However, the written test for the recruitment of primary school teachers (PSTs), earlier scheduled to be held on April 26 across Sindh and postponed at the eleventh hour after its paper was leaked out, will now be held on May 19 and May 24.
Provincial secretary for education Rizwan Memon said on Thursday that a decision about conducting the test for PSTs in two phases was taken in view of a huge number of candidates registered for the test across Sindh.
"The written test for the recruitment of PSTs for schools of the Karachi region and 10 other districts of Sindh will be held on May 19 while the test for the appointment of PSTs for schools of the remaining districts of the province will be held on May 24," the secretary said, adding that the provincial education department and Sindh University would announce a detailed schedule for the test in a couple of days.
Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah has directed the vice-chancellor of Sindh University to get the inquiry, being conducted to know the causes of leaking out of the paper for the PSTs, completed and its report made public before May 19 to ensure the credibility of the tests.
The test for the recruitment of PSTs was earlier scheduled for April 26 at all the 23 district headquarters of the province, including Karachi, but it was postponed at the eleventh hour by Sindh University's testing service after receiving news that the contents of the paper for the test had leaked out.
The postponement of the test had provoked widespread protests by candidates across Sindh.
Over 200,000 candidates have applied for 13,500 posts of high, junior and primary school teachers lying vacant across Sindh.
In Karachi alone, where 1,300 posts of high, junior and primary school teachers are to be filled, there are around 30,000 candidates who have applied for the posts of all the three categories of teachers.
Test for posts of teacher rescheduled
Hyderabad: The University of Sindh has announced a new schedule of the tests for selection of school teachers.
Test for the posts of high schoolteachers at Karachi will be conducted on May 10 and for the posts of primary school teachers (PST) will be held in two phases.
PST candidates from Ghotki, Jacobabad, Qambar at Shahdadkot, Karachi, Kashmore at Kandhkot, Khairpur, Larkana, Shikarpur, Sukkur and Thatta districts will appear in the test on May 19.
The test of PST candidates from Badin, Jamshoro, Matiari, Mirpurkhas, Shaheed Benazir Abad, Naushahro Feroze, Sanghar, Tando Mohammad Khan, Tharparkar and Umerkot districts will be conducted on May 24.

Paper leakage inquiry
