BSEK appoints control officers for annual exams

Karachi:March 01:The Board of Secondary Education Karachi (BSEK) on Tuesday appointed some 250 applicants as centre control officers for the upcoming annual exams.

During the past couple of years, the board had been receiving complaints about the flawed appointment procedure which hired inexperienced candidates for the job. However, this time around it was decided that “only people with teaching and administrative experience will qualify for the posts,” said Rafia Mallah, the BSEK controller examination.

She said the BSEK received around 400 applications for the 250 available slots. “Two hundred and fifty officers were selected by a five-member committee, which comprised senior employees of the BSEK.”

To ensure transparency during exams, college superintendents were being given a recent photograph of their appointed centre control officer, she added. “With a total of 240 examination centres, 125 will conduct the exams for male candidates while the females will sit the exams in the remaining 115 centres.”The news.
