In a significant development, the Board of Secondary Education Karachi (BSEK) has officially postponed several papers for the Intermediate Part I Supplementary Examinations originally scheduled for February 6.
Why the Postponement?
The decision to delay the examinations stems from the upcoming general elections and the subsequent closure of educational institutions from February 6 to 11. This move aims to ensure the safety and convenience of students amidst the electoral activities.
The Intermediate Part I Supplementary Examinations will experience the postponement of several papers, including:
- Botany Paper I (Science Pre-Medical)
- Statistics Paper I (General Science)
- Biology & Bacteriology (Home Economics)
- Commerce Papers I (Regular & Private)
- Sociology Paper I & Socs Paper I (Arts Regular & Private)
- Statistics Paper I (Arts Regular)
- Nursing Paper I
- Outlines of Home Economics Paper I (Special Candidates)
New Exam Date
The rescheduled date for the postponed exams is February 12, and they will be conducted at the same designated examination centers. Students are advised to make note of this revised schedule to ensure a smooth examination process.
Board Takes Action
In a parallel development, the Karachi Intermediate Board has initiated action against its officials. A letter has been formally sent to the anti-corruption department, urging the registration of a criminal case against two former chairmen, examination controllers, and eight other officials.
Allegations of Exam Result Fabrication
The accused officials, including former chairmen Dr. Saeed-ud-din and Naseem Ahmed Memon, are under scrutiny for alleged fabrication of exam results during the examinations held between 2021 and 2022. A criminal case has been officially filed against them, highlighting the seriousness of the allegations.
As the educational landscape faces turbulence with exam postponements and investigations, students and stakeholders are urged to stay informed. The rescheduled examinations offer a second chance for students to excel, while the investigations underscore the commitment to maintaining the integrity of the examination process.
