KARACHI: “ I’m satisfied with the current examination system as it is more transparent. Still there is room for improvement in the course and syllabus,” said Ashna Aslam of Federal Government Girls Inter College, who stood first with 918 out of 1,100 marks to get an ‘A-1’ grade with 83.45 percentage in Humanities group (regular) as the Board of Intermediate Education Karachi (BIEK) announced the results here on Monday.
All the top six position holders in the subject category happened to be girls. Ashna was followed by Tarfia Khan (884 marks) of Zubair Public Higher Secondary School and Sania Sohail (883 marks) of DA Degree College for Women, Phase VIII.
Tarfia Khan said she felt that the standard of education of private colleges was far better than that of government colleges. “I also feel that the teachers of government colleges pay little attention on how their students are doing in class due to which there is also drop in attendance at these institutions,” she said while sharing her ambitions of becoming a teacher herself one day.
Sania Sohail, too, said the government should take notice of the falling standards of government colleges. “There are so many government colleges here which don’t even have electricity as it has been disconnected due to non-payment of bills,” she said.
