KARACHI, April 5: The Secondary School Certificate (SSC) annual examination, 2012, will commence at 250 centres established in government and private schools across the city on Thursday.
The controller of examinations of the Board of Secondary Education Karachi (BSEK), Rafia Mallah, said on Wednesday that the board had reviewed the law and order situation and found it conducive for the conduct of the examinations.
“However, we expect that law-enforcement agencies will extend their special support towards the peaceful and foolproof conduct of examinations,” she said, adding that the board had already requested for special deployment of forces at least at 70 sensitive locations in eight towns of Karachi.
The board is holding Islamiat (compulsory) and Ethics for Non-Muslim (compulsory) exam for class X on Thursday from 9am to 12noon, for which 129,000 candidates had been registered. There would be no paper on Friday.
In all, 312,000 candidates would appear in various group examinations.
A maximum 255,500 candidates will appear in the science (class IX and X) group, followed by about 42,800 candidates of general group (Class IX and X) and 12,900 candidates belonging to general private group (Class IX and X).
There are 132 centres for boys — 67 in government and 65 in private schools — and 118 centres for girls — 63 at government and 55 at private schools — and the centres would work in one shift only.
According to Ms Mallah, about 200 vigilance officers of the BSEK would visit the examination centres on Thursday and submit their reports about the overall conduct of examination, including the use of unfair means, and problems faced by candidates and the examination staffs the same day.
Meanwhile, the Sindh government also constituted Chief Minister’s Special Vigilance teams at divisional level across the province for the SSC (matriculation) annual examination. Bilal Ahmed Memon, additional secretary (implementation) at the Chief Minister’s Secretariat would be the focal person.
A handout said that the vigilance teams in question would ensure fair and transparent conduct of examinations and deter malpractices/unfair means by paying surprise visits to the examination centres and would liaise with respective educational board and devise relevant strategy and furnish a daily report to the CM’s secretariat on the day of examination and a final report on the conclusion of the examination.Dawn.
