KARACHI, Sept 14: Aga Khan University Examination Board (AKU-EB) celebrated the success of the best performing students in its first SSC Composite Examinations in a ceremony held here on Thursday.

This first awards event of AKU-EB was well attended by dignitaries from the education sector, principals of AKU-EB affiliated schools, the award winning students and their parents.

Top performing students in the SSC examinations were Sakina Aijaz Hussain from Al Murtaza School, Karachi, who achieved the overall first position with a percentage of 90.71.

She was followed by Mehwish Azher Javed from FFC Grammar School, Mirpur Mathelo and Lubna Essa from ETN High School, Karachi as joint second position holders with passing percentages of 89.06 each, and Muhammad Sheraz Ahmed who secured third position from Tameer-e-Millat School, Mianwali with 88.71 percentage. In addition to shields and certificates, these candidates were awarded cash prizes worth Rs 70,000. A total of 34 awards were presented to the best performing students, from schools across Pakistan.

The Chief Guest, Senator Roshan Bharucha, congratulated the students for their exceptional performance in an examination which places greater emphasis on the understanding and application of knowledge and aims to re-orient students away from rote learning and selective study. She appreciated the efforts of AKU-EB for its contribution towards improving the standards of education at the Senior Secondary School level by providing extensive teacher training workshops and inclusive school development initiatives.

Ambassador Saidullah Khan Dehlavi, Chairman, Board of Trustees of Aga Khan University appreciated the efforts of students, parents, schools and teachers for taking up the challenge of the first AKU-EB examinations. Ambassador Dehlavi also noted AKU-EB's memberships of the International Association for Educational Assessment (IAEA) and the Association of Commonwealth Examination and Accreditation Bodies (ACEAB).

AKU-EB offers a financially affordable examination system as an alternative to the examination boards in the public sector and is in accordance with the government's policy to introduce an independent examining body through public-private partnership. It intends to enhance public confidence in SSC and HSSC through a transparent and trustworthy examination system.The Nation
