Karachi University to issue another merit list. Flawed entry test issue
Karachi: The University of Karachi is likely to issue another merit admission list of MS/PhD programmes based on the formula stated in the admission brochures after a lot of hue and cry was raised against the 'flawed' entry test.

This was decided at a meeting of the deans of different faculties of Karachi University held on Tuesday. However, no notification was issued in this regard.

Dr Shahana Urooj, a member of university's deans committee, said that the meeting, presided over by the acting vice-chancellor, decided to check the discrepancies in the merit admission list and prepare another list.

However, she said, "The list issued on Monday has not been withdrawn. It was a provisional list and we will prepare another list according to the formula stated in the admission brochures, which means that students who have secured 50 per cent marks in the National Testing Service (NTS) test would be declared qualified," she said, adding that the provisional list would be considered to fill remaining seats in various departments.

According to the list issued on Monday, 700 candidates for MS programme and 90 for PhD programme had been declared qualified. Only 722 candidates, however, had passed the NTS test.

The episode has occurred in the backdrop of NTS fiasco last month. About 60 per cent of the total 1,770 candidates failed to pass the first pre-entry tests. Dawn

Fear & loathing in IBA
Karachi: I am sorry to say that one of the best business school of
Pakistan; the Institute of Business Administration (IBA) is faced with destruction from within. The IBA administration with its bureaucratic and dictatorial attitude is creating a lot of problems for its students. In the current situation where the worldwide focus is on rights of the individual, such insolent violation of the student rights is condemnable. Students had great hopes from Dr. Ishrat Hussain but he has simply presided over an anti-student faculty's ham-handed handling of their charges.

Mr. Mobin Khalili, the Controller Examinations, for instance, has acquired for himself the image of a despot of sorts who is willing to expel and suspend students on the slightest of excuse. And that too, without giving them even a cursory hearing. Dr. Ishrat seems unable to control his choleric Controller Examination. The result is a despicable environment of fear and harassment in IBA.

Edu dept receives $100m from WB for 3 projects
Karachi: The Sindh Education Department has received the first instalment of $100 million from the World Bank (WB) and has released Rs 2.2 billion for three education projects in the province.

"The released amount will be spent phase-wise on the projects approved by the Sindh Education Department for the year 2008-09," the education department sources said.

Although a major chunk of the funds has been provided by the WB, the education department will also contribute for the projects, they maintained.

Over Rs 609 million of the amount has been earmarked to distribute free textbooks to the students studying in classes I to X in government schools. "As many as 30 million free textbooks will be distributed in government schools as per the decision of the Sindh government," the sources said and added that the Sindh Textbook Board has started working in this regard and will be done by April, 2009.

Around Rs 500 million have been allocated to give scholarships of Rs 1,000 to all female students studying in government schools in Sindh in classes VI to X, they said while giving an overview of the second project.

When questioned about the inability of the department to give out scholarships last year that is 2007-08, they confirmed that Reform Support Unit (RSU) could not give out scholarships as per their responsibility. The sources hoped that the same will not be repeated this year.

According to the sources the third project involves the renovation and maintenance of government school buildings for which Rs 1.2 billion has been provided to the School Management Committees (SMC). "Special attentions will be paid on renovating buildings in deplorable conditions such as the NJV School," they said.

It may be pointed out that for the last two years SMC were not provided development funds to renovate schools.

The funds for the distribution of textbooks and scholarships for female students will be handled by the RSU. "The RSU officials have been authorized to use the funds," the sources added. Daily Times
