Boys outshine girls in matric exams – for a change
Karachi: The Board of Secondary Education Karachi announced the results of the Secondary School Certificate Part II Science group in a ceremony hosted at the BSEK office on Thursday.
Instead of the girls outperforming the boys like every year, this time around the boys bagged the top two positions.
The award ceremony was marred by the members of the press shoving each other to try and be the first one to get the names of the position holders.
However, the environment turned a lot calmer after the clearly annoyed board officials announced the names of the top students.
The SSC toppers
Ammar Samad of the Usman Public School bagged the first position, while Syed Muhammad Usman Ali of the Waves Grammar School secured the second place.
The third rank was shared by Daniya Ali of the Karachi Public School and Karishma Kumari of the Defence Authority Model Girls School.
During their interview with the media, both Samad and Ali criticised the outdated examination system in the country.
“Exams should be designed to test the analytical skills of the students. I tried my best not to learn by rote,” said Samad, who obtained 791 marks out of the total 850.
Ali, who scored 790, said the BSEK should do away with the guess-paper culture. “Repeating the same questions from the five-year question bank makes it easy for anyone to guess what the exam paper will be like.”
BSEK Chairman Fasihuddin Khan agreed. “Repetition of questions has dropped the exam standards. But we have been working on it for the past few years and have brought the standard up a few notches.”
Of the 137,968 candidates who appeared in the exams, 10.17 percent received the A1 grade and 18.2 percent the A grade.
Around 20.21 percent managed to secure the B grade, 16.49 percent the C grade and 6.78 percent the D grade. The pass percentage was 72.14 percent.
Special kids’ results
The BSEK also announced the results of 118 special candidates who appeared in the SSC Part II examination and 101 special candidates who appeared in the SSC Part I exam.
All the students who topped the exams belonged to the Dewa Academy for the Deaf in Gulshan-e-Iqbal.
Nida Shams secured the first position with 88.11 percent, Zainab Ali Akbar stood second with 85.88 percent, and the third position was bagged by Maryam Ali with 84.82 percent. The pass percentage was 93.23 percent.
