Top positions go to girls once again
Islamabad, Aug 28: This year's Federal Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (FBISE) Higher Secondary School Certificate (HSSC) Part-II Annual Examination results are no different from the last ones, as girls emerged as toppers by and large.

As announced, the Higher Secondary School Certificate Part-II examination results on Monday, 10 of the 15 top three positions in the pre-engineering, pre-medical, humanities, science general and commerce groups went to girls.

Most high-achievers belonged to the military-run and private educational institutions. Last year, too, 10 of these positions were clinched by girls. The overall pass percentage in the examination improved. It was 72.3 per cent last year but has gone up to 76.65 per cent this year with 37,800 of the 54,253 candidates passing the examination, which was held in April and May this year.

In the pre-engineering group, Maryum Asad of Hamza Army Public School and College, Rawalpindi, secured the first position by securing 1018 out of 1100 marks. She was followed by Soban Ahmad of Islamabad Model College for Boys, G-10/4, Islamabad, with 1016 marks, and Aminah Siddique of Army Public School and College for Girls, Humayun Road, Rawalpindi, and Talha Rehman of the privately-run Punjab College, F-8/4, Islamabad, with 1015 marks each.

Last year, four HSSC-II candidates were caught using unfair means but the number has surged to 18 this year.

According to FBISE Controller (Conduct) Qasim Ali Kazmi, the candidates could apply for the rechecking of their papers in the next 30 days.

He said the HSSC-II supplementary examination would begin on November 11.

The controller said fresh candidates weren't allowed to sit in the examination, but those wanting to improve their grades or marks or take examination in additional subject(s) could do so.

Minister of State for Education and Professional Training Balighur Rehman, who was the chief guest of the results announcement ceremony on the FBISE premises, congratulated toppers for passing the examination with honours and asked them to keep it up for promising career and thus, contributing to national progress. At the same time, he urged unsuccessful candidates not to lose heart and make every effort to pass the examination next time. The news

HEC seeks feedback on revised criteria for ranking
Islamabad: The Higher Education Commission (HEC) has invited all the public and private institutions of the higher education in the country to provide feedback on the revised criteria for the ranking of the universities. The criteria have been revised by a committee of experts to address the concerns expressed by the universities about the ranking criteria and ranking process employed in the last two rankings conducted by the HEC. Due consideration has been given in the revised criteria to the comments and recommendations received from the universities from the earlier rankings.

The HEC has also conducted a thorough review of the ranking process to enhance transparency in the future. The ranking provides one of the mechanisms for the assessment of quality of teaching and research in the country and ensure the enhancement of quality of the higher education through healthy competition between the universities.

The ranking criteria is based on several factors, including adherence to quality assurance criteria in the appointment of the faculty members, faculty development, student intake, quality of MS and PhD programmes, graduates produced, implementation of plagiarism policy, research projects, research publications, quality of research journals, national and international awards, conferences organised, and academia-industry linkages.

HEC Chairman Mukhtar Ahmed has stressed that the criteria for the next ranking would be finalised on the basis of feedback received from the universities. "Feedback from the universities is important to ensure that ranking is more meaningful and useful for all the stakeholders. It should truly reflect the quality of teaching and research in Pakistan's institutions of higher education," he said.
