Charging of certificate fee by BISE protested
Rawalpindi: The charging of certificate fee by the Board of
Intermediate and Secondary Education, Rawalpindi to the students since
2010 has caused embarrassment among them and the heads of the schools.

division wherein it has been directed that all the students who have
appeared in the examination under board since 2010 should deposit the
certificate fee amounting to Rs 450. The management of the schools are
worried over it as the students who had appeared in the exams in 2010
and onwards have got admissions in different colleges in different
cities and it has become impossible for them to trace them and collect
the certificate fee from them.

announce the result of Inter part two on the 12th. The sources of the
board have revealed that the Board would announce the result of
