Karachi Board Inter exam forms new date
Karachi, May 11: The Board of Intermediate Education Karachi (BIEK) has fixed May 18 as the final and only date for submission of examination forms for the Higher Secondary School Certificate, Part-I and Part-II (Humanities and Commerce) annual examinations-2010, which are commencing on June 1, simultaneously.
Announcing this at a news conference held here on Monday, BIEK Chairman Prof Anwar Ahmed Zai urged all the candidates who had not submitted their forms to avail themselves of this last opportunity to save their academic year.
He said that the board had taken a firm stand that no examination form would be accepted after May 18.
According to him, both the regular and private students of Class XI and XII, belonging to the Humanities and Commerce groups, could submit their examination forms at the BIEK offices on May 18 from 10am to 8pm.
The BIEK had already started issuing admit cards of regular candidates to the representatives of their respective colleges while the admit cards of private candidates were being dispatched to their addresses mentioned in their examination forms, he said.
If any candidate belonging to the Humanities group, including those who would be submitting their examination forms on May 18, did not get their admit cards by May 23, they might collect them on May 24 and May 25 and the commerce group candidates could get the cards on May 26 and May 27 from the board office.
Giving details of the forthcoming HSC (Humanities and Commerce) groups' annual examinations, Prof Zai said that though the exams for both the groups would begin on June 1 simultaneously, the Humanities group examinations would be held in the morning shift (from 9.30am to 12.30pm) while the Commerce group's exams would be held in the afternoon shift (from 2.30pm to 5.30pm).
The BIEK, with a view to conducting the exams in an orderly and transparent manner, had set up 60 vigilance teams for a total of 120 examination centres and, as such, each team comprising two senior college teachers would be required to visit only two centres on each day of the exams, he said.
In addition to the 60 vigilance teams, a super vigilance committee comprising the BIEK chairman, the director-general (Colleges) of Sindh, the director of inspection, the BIEK secretary, two deputy secretaries and one deputy controller of examinations had also been formed to carry out surprise visits to examination centres and take on-the-spot decisions relating to cheating, use of unfair means and impersonation cases, he added.
