The Intermediate board exams in Karachi would start from 26th July and students would appear in Part II paper, Media officials reported, citing Board of Intermediate Education, Karachi (BIEK) chairman Dr. Saeeduddin.
Before the inter-board exams began, the chairman said they were unable to complete work last year due to the pandemic, but this time as planned.
“Work will start on July 26 and 112,000 students will attend,” he said, adding that pre-engineering and pre-medical students will take the board exams.
The chairman of BIEK also said that 66 test centers have been declared sensitive and that special measures have been taken to deter students from fraud and other illegal practices at work.
At this point, it should be mentioned that the matric board exams in Karachi have been marred by mismanagement by the Board of Secondary Education Karachi (BSEK) and reports of widespread fraud.
The job could also not be accepted at the test centers on time, creating problems for students who had to wait for hours or sometimes leave the test center without showing up for work.
Subsequently, the council accused the center’s control officers of being behind the whole episode to defame the BSEK authorities.
Board of Secondary Education Karachi (BSEK) chairman Syed Sharaf Ali Shah told the media that it was a conspiracy to defame the education committee.
He admitted that 38 center screening officers did not arrive at the examination centers at the specified time.
The president of BSEK said it had been decided to suspend CCOs associated with public schools, while those in charge of private schools would not participate in any terms in the future.
