Reevaluation at Lahore College for Women University (LCWU)
Lahore: I would like to draw the attention of Education Minister, Higher Education Commission and the Governor Punjab, Mr Salman Taseer towards the alarming situation developing at Lahore College for Women University (LCWU).

According to newspaper reports, the students of the Bachelors of Fine Arts programme of this university have been asked to re-exhibit their thesis work for re-evaluation by a third examiner. The thesis work was already exhibited at Alhamra and was duly evaluated. The federal secretary Mr Athar Tahir opened the exhibition.

The majority of students have rejected this decree which they think is a way to oblige two students who were not satisfied with the response of the examiners. One of these students is the daughter of a faculty member who is the head of gender studies department.

The other student's work suffers from plagiarism. For or the sake of these two favored students the whole examination process is to be repeated. The reasons quoted by the VC for this decision are unsatisfactory and lame to say the least. If the examiners didn't follow the procedures for submitting the results in time, which by the way is not the case, that is a failure of the university administration. Why are the students being subjected to re-evaluation for university's failure?
