BISE unable to solve Intermediate result fiasco
Lahore, Sep 28: The Lahore board administration has failed to solve the Result Late (RL) issue that aroused due to the error-based Intermediate results, despite a passage of 18 days since result's announcement.
The students, along with their parents and teachers were paying regular visits to the board's office to get their result cards, however, the board officials were unable to issue them the results despite their several claims and promises.
The board officials had claimed to solve the issue within three to four days but remained unsuccessful in fulfilling these promises.
The negligence of the officials had put the students, parents as well as the teachers in turmoil since the new academic year had been delayed owing to disruption in the admission process at graduate level because of the result fiasco.
According to details, more than 10,000 students had been placed in the Result Late (RL) category soon after the results were announced.
Blunders in the result were exposed on the very next day when the top positions were changed by the board's administration.
Students said that they had been facing one problem after the other ever since the board introduced the online system.
They said that board officials were responsible for spoiling the future of the students. They also appealed to the Lahore High Court to take a suo motu notice of the negligence of the board officials, hence, providing some relief to the students. Daily times
