May 12, 2017

The Board of Intermediate Education Karachi (BIEK) on Thursday reported 20 cases of cheating to the board’s committee looking over the matter.

According to the board, 16 students were in possession of cheating materials, whereas three candidates were found using mobile phones and another tore an examination copy. The BIEK had on Wednesday reported at least one case of impersonation, while another student was said to have made away with his answer script from the examination centre among eight other cases.

In another incident a student was caught using a smartwatch to solve his paper. According to the board’s official, all cases were proceeded to relevant sections for legal proceedings.

The provincial education minister, Jam Mehtab Hussain Dahar, a day ago observed that use of unfair means at examination centres during the ongoing higher secondary school certificate, parts I and II, annual examinations had been reduced to 90 percent due to the Sindh chief minister’s efforts. He was speaking to the media during his visit to the Premier Boys College, North Nazimabad.
