KARACHI - Board of Intermediate Education Karachi (BSEK) Chairman Prof Anwar Ahmed Zai has said that the Inter Board Chairmen Committee (IBCC) is contemplating display of seat numbers on the examination papers to end unfair means of the cheating mafia in examinations. He said that the second phase of the Higher Secondary School Certificate (HSSC) part-I & II annual examinations for the candidates of Arts and Commerce would start from June 1st, 2010, while the last date for submission of examination forms for the intermediate regular and private candidates of Arts and Commerce is May 18. He was speaking at a press conference here at BSEK office on Monday. BSEK Secretary Haider Naveen, Controller Examinations Agha Mirza Akber and Deputy Secretary Imran Chishti were also present on the occasion. Prof Zai said that the board administration was trying to eliminate copy culture from the city, while this year during the examinations the situation was remained under control. To get control over the activities of the examination mafia the board did not setup any new examination centre for those candidates who submitted their examination forms at the eleventh hour. This was the practice at the board to setup examination centre in the nick of time; examination mafia was used to take benefit from this practice. A few days back, BSEK received nearly 8,500 examination forms on the last date but all the candidates were placed in the already setup examination centres across the city. However, May 18th is the last date for the submission of examination forms for candidates of Arts and Commerce, while new examination centre will not be setup so that the activities of the examination mafia could be discouraged, he said. Admission cards to candidates of Arts faculty will be sent during May 24 to 25, while candidates of commerce faculty will receive their admission cards during May 26 to 27, he said and added that the intermediate examinations of Arts and Commerce will be held in two shifts. He added that candidates of Arts faculty will take exam in the first shift (Morning), while papers of commerce will be taken during second shift (Evening). Talking about the examination papers, Prof Zai said that IBCC was estimating the cost that could be spent in the project to display seat numbers on the examination papers to an eye on the activities of the examination mafia.
