227 students barred from taking inter exam for use of unfair means
Karachi: The Board of Intermediate Education Karachi has debarred 227 Science faculty students from appearing in their examinations for one to three years for use of unfair means.

According to the BIEK chairman, Prof Anwar Ahmed Zai, 13 of the 227 students have been debarred from appearing in their examinations for three years, 18 for two years and the remaining 196 for one year as the use of unfair means charges against them were of serious nature and documentary evidence about them was available with the BIEK.

The results of 60 more candidates were cancelled but they have been allowed to appear in the supplementary examinations.

Under the rules of educational boards, candidates debarred from appearing in examinations by any board cannot take their examinations from any other educational board of the country.

Giving the details of the punishments awarded to the candidates for resorting to unfair means in their Higher Secondary School Certificate (Science) annual examinations for 2008, Prof Zai said the BIEK had formed a committee comprising senior professors to decide the cases of the candidates caught while cheating in the last examinations.

The committee after going through the cheating material seized from the students during their examinations had given its decision in 277 such cases. However, the committee which had provided an opportunity to all those candidates to appear before it to defend themselves had exonerated 60 candidates of the charges, allowing them to appear in the HSC supplementary examinations, he added.

The BIEK chairman said the controller of examinations had been tasked to intimate the committee's decision to the parents of all those candidates who had been penalised.

About the unfair means cases against candidates who had appeared in the HSC (Commerce and Arts) annual examinations, he said the board's unfair means committee would announce its decision about such cases later.

He said once all the cases of unfair means were decided by the committee, the BIEK would take further measures to help curb the menace of cheating.

The BIEK chairman was optimistic that the trend of cheating in examinations would be reduced considerably with the introduction of the new pattern of papers for the students of Class IX and XI from the 2009 annual examinations.

The educational boards of Sindh have already decided to conduct Class IX and XI annual examinations for 2009 on the new pattern finalised with certain changes in the mode of papers and redistribution of marks of each section of theory and practical.

Accordingly, objective-type questions will carry 20 per cent marks, short questions 50 per cent marks while for descriptive questions there will be 30 per cent marks.

Sindh University cuts MBA seats at Laar college by half
Badin: Students of the evening program of MBA complained on Monday that the Sindh University had cut to half number of seats in MBA at Sindh University Laar College.

They said that without giving any reason the university reduced seats by 50 per cent from 100 to 50 and stopped issuing admission forms to Laar College for MBA classes since Oct 8.

Ms Fatima Soomro, a student of MBA (Part-I), said that the university was making admission to all other evening programs excepting MBA, which had given rise to the impression that the university was planning to roll back its MBA program. The university had not declared any admission policy for MBA since then, she added.

Ms Keenjhar Memon, another MBA student, said that in case the university was reducing or abolishing MBA seats in the Laar College, the fate of students studying at present would be pushed into doldrums. No one would be able to go to the university to complete his or her MBA course, especially girls, she feared.

She said that a 50 per cent cut in seats would deprive students of Laar of an opportunity to get higher education near their homes. It had been done only to please the dean of the faculty of business administration at the Sindh University, she said.The director of admission of the Sindh University Mohammad Ali Roshan said that the forms for admission to MBA had been delayed and the university would supply them after Nov 15.

About reasons behind 50 per cent cut in MBA seats, he rejected the impression and said that the university had neither mentioned number of seats in its catalogue of 2008 nor had it reduced their number.

He said that he would recommend 100 seats for the college.

People demanded that the speaker of National Assembly, governor and vice-chancellor of Sindh University direct the authorities not to reduce seats in the evening program for MBA and announce admission policy and provide admission forms without delay. Sindh University has established its branch named Sindh University Laar College to provide higher education to the people living in far-flung areas of lower Sindh.

The college started MBA classes in 2007-08 in which more than 150 students had applied for 100 seats. The college also opened classes for BEd, MEd and MA (education) in 2008-09 to meet demand of Laar students. Dawn

Are schools prepared for emergencies?
Karachi: With frequent reports of fire across the city and bomb hoax calls creating panic and fear in schools, 20 different schools have taken the initiative to develop a good school safety with the help of students in order to prepare them for emergencies.

The project 'Are we prepared for emergencies?' is part of a campaign launched by Children's Museum for Peace and Human Rights (CMPHR) to help create awareness on the issue. As part of the awareness campaign, various training workshops were organised by the CMPHR in the past month, after which students were asked to go back and review the safety standards at their respective schools.

Sharing their findings before an audience at the Goethe Institut on Tuesday morning, students from schools such as Al Murtaza, BVS Parsi, Brilliant Career, Habib Public, St Lawrence Convent, Shah Wilayat Public, Nasra Public, Indus Academy, A.M.I, Top Care, and Karrar Hussain Academy talked about the safety measures adopted in their schools.

The workshop helped students understand various preventive measures such as placement of fire extinguishers and fire alarms each school should adopt. With the help of evacuation drills and awareness sessions in school assemblies, students were able to achieve their target. Participants were of the view that an increasing sense of insecurity prevails among students and parents partially because they are not prepared to fight emergencies nor do schools have the necessary equipment and training to deal with such situations.

Acknowledging the efforts of students, Naeem Sadiq, a safety consultant and a guest speaker at the session, later assisted the students and briefed them on further different types of hazards during his workshop developing a school safety system.

"The objective of the campaign is to build a resilient community through safer schools. We want children to introduce these safety measures at home and in their neighbourhood as well. They need to be aware of the problem before they learn to tackle in emergency situations," Rashida Faheem, coordinator CMPHR, said.

The workshop was followed by the screening of a short documentary 'Lessons Save Lives' that talked about a British lady employed at a hotel in Bangkok when a tsunami hit the region in December 2004. Based on her training to deal with emergency situations, she managed to have the entire hotel evacuated within minutes saving the lives of the guests and the staff members.

Students were later taken on a field trip to the fire station where fire tenders discussed their problems and shared their experience in tackling emergencies.
