BSEK visits to Exam centres Four caught in SSC exam

Karachi:April 7:Four cases of unfair means being used during the ongoing Matric exams were caught by the Board of Secondary Education Karachi (BSEK) in various visits to examination centres in District Malir on Friday.

BSEK Chairman Professor Dr Saeeduddin along with media teams visited the Agro-Technical Government Boys High School in Drigh Road and Government Girls Secondary School, Saudabad in District Malir while students were attempting papers there.

During the inspection, the board officials found that two candidates who were attempting the paper were not the actual students who had enrolled. Their answer papers were immediately cancelled and cases were lodged against the actual students for using unfair means.

Moreover, two of the examiners assigned duty there – Muhammad Faiz, a headmaster and Syed Muhammad Faraz, a government school teacher – were found guilty of facilitating students by helping them with cheating material.

The board chairman urged Iqbal Hussain Durrani, the secretary of Schools Education and Literacy Department, to take strict disciplinary action against the headmaster and teacher who were involved in the malpractice.

Meanwhile, the education secretary also visited various schools and examination centres in the same district. He instructed the examiners to ensure that all facilities including drinking water and electricity supply are available during the exams.

Durrani also distributed free books in different schools. On the occasion, he said that improving the quality of education is the priority of the Sindh government. He added that the education department will provide free books to around 200,000 children enrolled in government schools in the locality for the new academic year.

Durrani said copy culture will be discouraged at any cost and expressed satisfaction over the ongoing Secondary School Certificate assessment process. He added that if he receives any complaint regarding cheating, he will take action as per the law.The news.
