Karachi students take top slots in national madrassa exams
Karachi: Students at Karachi's madrassas have beaten their counterparts across
the country in the annual examinations held by the biggest madrassa board, the
Wafaqul Madaris Al-Arabia Pakistan. Out of a total of 48 positions, they claimed
31, up from 20 last year. Boys did better.
These exams were conducted
from August 2 to 7 for a total of 176,914 students (76,926 female candidates).
According to the Wafaq's central examination committee's Maulana Mehmoodul Hasan
Ashraf, 82 percent or 144,689 candidates passed (63,943 female students). A
total of 32,000 candidates failed. Approximately, 3,986 madrassas participated
and more than 12,000 seminaries in Pakistan are affiliated with the Wafaq with
1,100 of them from Karachi alone. A total of 6,199 male and female invigilators
oversaw the exams throughout the country.
After Karachi, the students
who won top positions came from the Punjab (12), and there were five from the
NWFP. The Wafaq's Qari Hanif Jhalandri put this down to the fact that Karachi
had more seminaries and the educational standard at them was at its peak.
He was not that bothered about the number of failures at 18 percent,
which he said was a normal ratio.
