BIEK issues list of most sensitive exam centres

Karachi: The list of 13 most sensitive centres issued by the Board of Intermediate Education Karachi (BIEK) for its exams beginning on April 22 did not include Lyari, Orangi or Baldia Town areas which were known for their volatile law and order situation and instead the board included relatively peaceful neighbourhoods like Gulshan-e-Iqbal, Shaheed-e-Millat Road, Gulistan-e-Jauhar and North Nazimabad.

According to the list issued by the BIEK on Friday, the most sensitive exam centres are: Government Degree Boys College, New Karachi; Government Degree Boys College, 7/D-2, North Karachi; Government Premier Boys College No. 1, Block-H, North Nazimabad; Jinnah Government College, Nazimabad; Government College for Men, Nazimabad; Aisha Bawany Government Science College No.1, Bizertta Lane; CMS Government Boys Secondary School, Nishter Road; Government Degree Science and Commerce College, Block-7, Gulshan-e-Iqbal; Government Degree Boys College, Gulistan-e-Jauhar; Government National College, Shaheed-e-Millat Road; PECHS Government Degree Science College, Kashmir Road; Government Inter Boys Science College, 36-B Landhi; and Government Degree Boys College, Korangi 2 ½.

Addressing a press conference, Controller Examinations BIEK Imran Chishti said that these exam centres were declared most sensitive because these colleges produce good results but despite that law and order situation often erupts there during the course of examination.

Chairman BIEK Anwar Ahmedzai said that the police and Rangers personnel would be deployed at these centres so as to ensure peaceful environment during the exams, adding that a request to this effect has been sent to the chief minister.

According to the board officials, a total of 270,000 students will appear in the exams in the morning shift, while 75,000 students will be accommodated in the afternoon shift. Exams will be held at 108 centres and 15 vigilance teams have been constituted to inspect the exam centres.

The BIEK has also requested the K-Electric to exempt these centres from load-shedding during the exam hours. “When they (K-Electric) have waited for a year and three months to be paid their dues why not they wait for another month and receive prayers of thousands of students along with the electricity bills,” said Ahmedzai.

When asked that examination centres have also been set up at the 47 colleges of the city where electricity had been cut off due to non-payment of bills, the BIEK chairman said they were not informed of any such colleges by the directorate.
