It is quite shocking and alarming that students who got A-1 or A grades in their Intermediate could not get the entry test. Former Chairman of the Hyderabad Board, Dr. Muhammad Memon express his thoughts and said that he was shocked by this performance. He expresses that this is questionable how they had achieved such high marks in their intermediate exams but not in the admission test.
He noted that it is not right to only blame the Educational Boards but the entire Educational system needs to be reevaluated. The data obtained from admissions tests revealed that quality education in Sindh Province is lacking, only 7% of students from the Larkana Board, 7% from the Sukkur Board, 9.2% from the Ziauddin Board, 13% from the Hyderabad Board, 13.41% from the MirpurKhas Board, and 32% from the Karachi Board passing the test.
Mr. Murid Rahimo, Secretary of Universities and Boards also admitted the poor quality of education in the Sindh province. lack of interest and competency among the teachers is the main reason for such poor results. From Sindh, only 2% of candidates pass the CSS exams across the Country.
Sindh Government should bring developments in the Education sector and provides training and facilities to the teacher. Besides this well-disciplined environment, infrastructure and educational reforms are much needed in the education sector.
