Students in a quandary: Board mixes up photographs of boys and girls
NAWABSHAH: The mixing of photographs on the mark-sheets of Class X students, both male and female, has left them in a quandary in regard to their admissions to colleges.

The Board of Intermediate Secondary Education Hyderabad committed the blunder by fixing wrong photographs on mark certificates of hundreds of students to the extent that male candidates bore pictures of female and vice versa.

There was another error wherein bearer’s snap was affixed but name of the candidate and stamp of the board missing.

Zainab d/o Ghulamuddin Gopang appearing in matriculation examinations from the Government Girls High School Nawabshah with seat no: 101982) is issued mark-sheet no: B 050986 which bears her photograph but missed her name and the stamp of board.

Similarly, Shumaila d/o Talib Hussain of Government Girls High School Nawabshah with seat no: 102062) is issued certificate no: B 032567 but with a photograph of a male candidate.

In many instances, the board has not fixed any photographs while in majority of instances wrong snaps are pasted while some lack the board’s stamp.

Some 150 mark certificates of students of DC High School Nawabshah reportedly carry wrong pictures thus not only putting school managements in difficulties but creating hurdles for students seeking admissions to colleges.

Poor students are facing the error committed by Board while admissions in colleges are in process and would end on August 20. Admission forms of candidates not fulfilling the criteria would be rejected.

Allah Bachayo Bhatti, Headmaster of DC High School told Dawn that similar mistake was committed by the Board last year when mark-sheets of Class IX were issued by them. However, when approached the Board promised of rectifying the error and instead it has multiplied such cases by enhancing it to 150 from last year’s 25, he said.

The Headmaster has informed the EDO Education and also written a letter to the Controller of Examinations and Chairman of the Board for immediate correction, he said. Ms Nighat Yasmin, Headmistress, Government Girls High school Nawabshah said that the Board is continuing this practice since last year and was not ready to bail the students out of this nightmare despite repeated complaints.

It is shocking to mark certificates of girl students bearing photographs of male, she said while narrating the agony, parents and students face, while visiting the Board office.

The staffers not only harass them but also demand money she said and promised of bringing the whole episode to the knowledge of Chairman and Controller of Examinations through a letter, soon.

Mark certificates of Abida Bibi d/o Abdul Ghaffar is without a photo and of Shumaila d/o Talib Hussain and Nimo d/o Jethmol bear pictures of male students.

The DCO/Administrator Shaheed Benazirabad, Jamal Mustafa Syed said that the issue would be taken up with the Chairman BISE Hyderabad and the EDO Education.

EDO Razi Khan Jamali said that he would contact the board for immediate rectification of error.

Chairman and Controller of Examinations were not available for comments.Dawn
