Islamabad - Disappointed over their examination results over 30 female students of Islamabad Model College for Girls (Postgraduate), G-10/4, staged a protest at Quaid-i-Azam University against the discrepancies and failures in BA/BSc Part-I result declared by the QAU.

According to information, the female students who mostly had compartments went to QAU and staged a sit-in in front of the administration block. The students blocked the road after which the controller examination had to come to listen to their grievances.

The students said despite taking months the university had issued a faulty result. They said the students had been declared failed or pass in subjects which they never opted.

The university has increased passing percentage from 33 per cent to 40 per cent that is also a new thing for the students as Punjab University used to pass the students who even scored 33 per cent marks so it’s also a concern for the students, officials say.

The controller examination showed the students their answers sheets to pacify them. “There is no reassessment policy of the university so we cannot do anything. College teachers prepared the question papers that answer sheets were also checked by them. The university has no role in marking except announcing the result,” said controller examination Mohammad Babar. The result of FSc of these colleges was also very poor. Actually the teachers don’t teach at colleges as they all teach at private academies and when the students and their parents regret poor results, they put blame on university, he maintained.

Earlier, on December 3 the students of Islamabad Model Postgraduate College, H-8, had protested against QAU administration for its failure to announce the annual results of BA/BSc Part-I 2014 on time. The examinations of BA/BSc Part-I were conducted in June 2014 by the university and result was announced on December 5.
