According to the CM’s representative, Murad Ali Shah had also called an immediate report from the Secretary University and Board.
The examinations conducted by the Board of Intermediate & Secondary Education Karachi (BSEK) for the General group were in progress, while the exams for science group would start from April 15.
Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah had directed Karachi Electric Supply Company (KESC) to prohibit load-shedding in the exam centers, but the students remained deprived of electricity and cold water in Karachi.
BSEK had formed 83 examination centers in Karachi, where 45000 students would appear in the general group’s exams.
The examination boards of Sindh were always under the criticism for cheating from a long time. Still no measures were taken by the government. This negligence had caused a lower level of education in the province. The examination standards of Sindh are quite lower than Punjab and other provinces of Pakistan. Sindh government needs to focus on the education to raise the standard of education.
Sindh board examinations always create media highlights due to exams leak and cheating. Never a strict action was being reported against the responsible persons nor the Sindh government has adopted any proper means to control exams corruption.
In 2015, 65 students were caught cheating during exams held under the Board of Secondary Education Karachi (BSEK) and 221 students were caught in Larkana.
