'O'/'A' Level exams held peacefully

KARACHI, May 15(Daily Times): A-level Urdu and O-level geography examinations were held as per schedule Monday despite the calls for a strike.

Fortunately, the examinations were conducted without any unpleasant occurrences and furthermore high attendance levels were noticed. "We were successful in our attempt to hold the exams. Candidates' attendance was almost 100 percent in both the morning and evening sessions," said the director examinations of the British Council Karachi, Asim Khan. "Furthermore, we have not received a single complaint saying that problems were faced in reaching the examination centers."

According to Khan, numerous measures had been taken to ensure the safety and security of parents and candidates at the examination centers. "Armed security guards had already been on duty but after violence, we had increased their number greatly," said Khan.

Earlier, the British Council had decided to stick to its examination schedule despite the strike calls for Monday and Tuesday. It had also announced that alternative examinations would be held for candidate facing commuting problems.

"Most of us drove our own cars to the examination centers. The strike in the city didn't really affect us," said a parent waiting outside one of the examination centers. "In fact, it took us less time to reach, as the roads were deserted."

Even the students seemed cheerful. "The exam was relatively easy and went far better than my expectations," said a candidate walking out after giving his Urdu exam.
