BISE Result Error Again
THE Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (BISE), Lahore, continued its tradition of embarrassing the Punjab government with its grave errors in results of matriculation annual examination, 2010.
Last year, a controversy had erupted when owing to mere negligence of the BISE officials, a private candidate, who had secured 914 marks, was awarded a bronze medal and Rs 10,000 for “achieving” third position in Intermediate’s Commerce Group (among boys) despite the fact in this group, another student of a private college had secured 915 marks.
This time, the BISE Lahore has declared 607 candidates pass in subject of Persian whereas 507 had appeared in the exam for said subject, thanks to negligence of board administration led by its Chairman Prof Dr Muhammad Akram Kashmiri.
According to the BISE official statement showing subject-wise pass percentage, the pass percentage in the subject of Persian this year remained 119.72 as out of total 507 candidates ‘607’ passed the exam.
The frequent grave errors have been raising concerns among the stakeholders besides creating doubts among them about authenticity of results declared by the BISE, Lahore.
When contacted, Controller Examination Prof Manzur ul Hassan Niazi termed the mistake a typographical error.
