BIEK rejects exam forms of 23 students for submitting fake documents
Karachi: Chairman Board of Intermediate Education Karachi (BIEK) Anwar Ahmed Zai announced on Friday that the examination forms of 23 candidates appearing in the annual examinations have been cancelled for submitting tampered and forged documents.
The committee of the Board, chaired by Zai, found that some students have submitted forged documents, particularly secondary school certificates, to get admission to different colleges of the city.
Zai said that there were several cases in which the students tampered their original marks to get admission to reputatble colleges. The candidates have tried to hide their original marks by exaggerating the scores in several subjects, he said.
Most of the cases concern the Board of Secondary Education Karachi, he added. The Board have cancelled the registration and enrolment of the candidates who have used forged documents, whereas they are no more eligible to appear in the examinations of the BIEK, Zai said.
He mentioned that the students who have tempered their documents are not allowed to sit in the exams this year. However, they might get admission in the colleges next year according to their original mark sheet. But, it would depend upon the authority concerned whether they allow these students to appear in the colleges or not, he added.
The BIEK chairman elaborated that if the authority concerned allowed such students (tempered case) to get admissions in public or private colleges or higher secondary schools, then they could appear in the annual examinations next year. Otherwise, their careers are also ruined.
Zai added "These students have committed a crime for which they would have to pay a price." The committee had conducted a meeting on Friday to review the matter. All documents were sent to the relevant boards to verify the documents submitted by the candidates appearing in the annual exams. Once the BIEK received verifications from other boards and departments then the committee will take action against them, he said.
At least three students of Pre-Medical Group, seven candidates of Pre-Engineering, 11 of Commerce Group and two candidates of Arts Groups tempered their original mark sheets, Zai further said.

Peshawar: Participants of a meeting held at the University of Peshawar on Friday demanded a standardised BS degree programme for all the affiliated institutes of the universities in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
The meeting chaired by Vice-Chancellor, UoP, Dr Azmat Hayat, also decided not to compromise on the assessment criteria already agreed upon with the affiliated institutes, according to a press release.
Assistant Registrar, Affiliations, Gohar Rehman, said the BS degree programme was started in September last year in three of the affiliated colleges of the UoP.
Mr Rehman said affiliation had been granted in BS programme semester system under 40:60 ratio as agreed in the earlier meetings held between officials of the University of Peshawar and the Higher Education Department, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
Under the agreed upon mechanism 40 per cent assessment in each subject was to be carried out by the respective teacher of the college while the remaining 60 per cent assessment by the University of Peshawar.
