Punjab University BA/BSc 2009 early exam condemned

Colleges slate early BA/Bsc exams
Lahore, Nov 25: Several government and private colleges have condemned the Punjab University's move to conduct the BA/BSc 2009 examinations a month prior to their originally scheduled date, saying this will adversely affect the result.

The Punjab University (PU) has announced that the BA/BSc Annual Examination 2009 would be held on February 17, as compared to the previously announced date of March 12 (approximately a month earlier). According to the PU administration, this move was made in the larger interest of the students. It said that the exams could not be conducted at the original date, as there would be a clash with the scheduled dates of the matriculation and intermediate examinations. It added that there was insufficient staff; too few examination centres; and other related problems that would have forced the BA/BSc exams to be moved to May 15 or later if they were not held early.

Too little time: However, the stakeholders concerned have said that this move would likely adversely affect the results of the students because they would have very little time to prepare for the exams. Government Islamia College Principal Dr Zaheer Minhas said that the PU's decision did not benefit students. He said that if the administration wanted to conduct the examinations a month earlier, then it should have announced it at least a year in advance so that the students and college administrations were prepared for it. Similarly, Government Islamia College Lahore (Cantt) Principal Dr Rukhsana Latafit said that the shortage of time would greatly inconvenience students, adding that regardless, they were bound to follow the management's decision. Another principal of a government college said that several colleges had performed poorly in last year's BA/BSc examinations, adding that some had even shown a zero percent result. He said that the PU's decision would likely worsen this situation, as several colleges would not be able to complete their courses. He said that around 172,888 students appeared in the exams last year, with 120,000 students private candidates. He said that the pass percentage was 24.67 percent, which was significantly lower than the previous year's 26.68 percent. According to an official of the Education Department, there are around 425 colleges in the province. He said that the decision would likely affect the colleges in remote areas of the province worst.

Not possible: Rubab Fatima, a student of BA, said that the decision had made most students very anxious, adding that it was not possible to complete the coursework in such little time. She said that most students studied in the last months prior to the exams and they were very concerned about the lack of a month. Aousaf Ahmed, another BA student, said that it did not make any sense to conduct examinations out of order. He said the matric, intermediate and BA/BSc exams should all be conducted in order.

Not willing: PU Controller (Examinations) Zahid Karim Khan said that the decision had been taken to avoid a clash with the scheduled dates of the matriculation and intermediate examinations. He said that the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (BISE) had been unwilling to change their dates, so the PU had taken the initiative. He said the decision had been taken after thorough discussions between the PU administration and the Education Department. He said that they had chosen to conduct the exams early, as load shedding would prevent the students from effectively studying in the months of April and May.

Three months: According to the PU administration, the colleges concerned were informed of this decision three-and-a-half months ago. Meanwhile, the BISE has also revised its schedule regarding Secondary School Certificate (SSC) examination and intermediate examination 2009. BISE Controller Manzoorul Hasan Niazi said that according to the revised schedule, matriculation exams would be held on March 17, while the intermediate examination would start from April 20.

"Actually Its problem of Management of Punjab University to arrange the staff and its really not problem of students. Why they are being involved in uncomfortable environament. on the hand agewise BA/BSc students deserve for more caring situation than Inetermediate and maticulate students because they are going to take part in practicle life and their parents are more hopeful about their future. Kindly dont do it. March/April Sechedule is the best."

"Being a citizen of Pakistan, we are all prepared for any sudden announcement including chandge in schedualed examination. It shows t he ignorance and apathy of administration of educational instituitions.I am an ACCA student and B.A would be my supporting degree. I planned to prepare for B.A examination one month two months prior to the exams. Faced with the fact that exams are schedualed earliier, It would be vey difficult for me prepare in the shrinked time. I would definately influence my grades.Who is responsible for it. Whatever the reasons wouuld have been,Pu should not have done this. It shows the irresponsible behaviour of administration. New dates are not acceptable so, it should be retrived."

Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) denied report accreditation of PU Metallurgy Dept
Lahore: Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) has clarified a news item "PU Metallurgy Dept granted accreditation" published on November 9, 2008.

It is important to mention here that the said news item was based on a press statement issued by the Punjab University on November 8 in which the varsity had claimed that its "Department of Metallurgy and Materials Engineering has been granted national accreditation by Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) for three years."

On Monday, in a press statement, the PEC denied the veracity of the news item stating accreditation of an engineering programme (not a dept) by PEC was a highly sensitive matter and was treated confidentially till final decision was taken at the government level. It further stated the visitation of a programme by a committee of experts was only the first step in a rather lengthy and deliberate procedure of accreditation. During visitation, the committee of experts collects data/ information regarding faculty, curriculum, laboratories, classrooms etc (total of 79 attributes). "This is what was done with respect to Metallurgy and Materials Science Programme of the University of Punjab", the PEC statement added.

ìPremature making public of a non-existing decision, not only results in misinforming the parents and students seeking admission to an engineering programme but it may affect the decision making process of a public organization", the statement concluded. The News

France to expand scope of higher education
Faisalabad: France will expand higher education facilities to Pakistani students in various fields of science and technology, particularly in agricultural disciplines.

Universities and Scientific Attaché, embassy of France in Pakistan, Dr Olivier Bergossi, said this in a meeting with University of Agriculture Faisalabad (UAF) vice-chancellor Dr Iqrar Ahmed. A four-member French delegation, led by Dr Bergossi, visited the academia in connection with a "Talent Hunt' program launched by the French government seeking scholars of various disciplines for higher education facilities in France.

Dr Bergossi said France had been extending PhD education and research facilities to more than 200 Pakistani students and one-fourth of the total strength belonged to UAF. Earlier Attaché for Science & Technology Sandie Favier told the UAF head that the French government was contemplating expansion of its higher education program for Pakistan.

Dr Iqrar told the delegation that the talent hunt move was need of the hour for extending opportunities to young agricultural scholars in collaboration with the embassy of France. Dawn
