The second position was also shared by three students –Mehwish Siddiqa d/o Asif Ali; Sana Azmat d/o Syed Azmat Aziz and Dur-i-Shehwar d/o Mohammad Aslam Qureshi –students of Falcon House Grammar School, North Karachi; Karachi Public School, Gulshan-i-Iqbal and C.A.A. Model School, Airport, respectively. They secured 805 marks.

The third position was bagged by Sana Ashraf d/o Mohammad Ashraf. She got 803 marks and belonged to Federal Secondary School of Federal B' Area.

Most of the position holders were highly critical of the Karachi Electric Supply Company, saying that unannounced load-shedding and frequent power breakdowns had badly affected their studies.

They were also of the opinion that no student would like to take tuition or join coaching centres if they were properly taught at their educational institutions.

They were expressing their views at a ceremony held in their honour at the Karachi Press Club on Thursday. The Sindh education department's director for private schools, Mansoob Hussain Siddiqui, and parents of the toppers were also present.

Ms Subas Ali, who shared the first position with Alicia Khan Ghauri, said that had there been no load-shedding during their examination, she and other candidates would have performed much better.

Ms Ali, who aspires to become a doctor, was of the view that students were forced to take tuition only when they were not properly taught at their educational institutions.

Ms Alicia Khan Ghauri could not attend the ceremony as she was abroad, her father Senator Babar Khan Ghauri, who was present on the occasion said. Ms Mehwish Siddiqa, who shared the second position with Ms Sana Azmat and Ms Dure-i-Shehwar, also criticised the KESC for resorting to prolonged load-shedding.

She complained that there was no mathematics teacher at her school for a long time and the school had hired the services of the subject's teacher only two months before the examination. She wishes to become a neurologist.

Ms Sana Azmat stressed the need for changing the education system and the paper pattern. She suggested that there should be more and more objective-type questions.

Ms Dur-i-Shehwar, who also got second position, said that traffic jams and pollution were the two major issues facing the city and the relevant authorities should help resolve these issues on priority. She wants to become a chartered account.

The third position holder, Ms Sana Ashraf, deplored that although Urdu was the national language, no efforts were being made to promote the language.

All the position holders gave the credit of their success to their parents and teachers. Dawn
