Exam malpractices ended, claims KU controller
Karachi: There has been a clear reduction in malpractices in examination such as undue changes in markings and plagiarism, according to the controller of examinations at the University of Karachi (KU).

Dr Muhammed Arshad Azmi told PPI that now nobody can acquire issued marks sheet or degree from the University of Karachi illegally. In the past the involvement of concerned staff could not be ruled out over exam malpractices and some people even tried to influence him through political parties.

However now people who approached him were politely refused. Furthermore, strict action has been taken during exams and hundreds of students were caught red handed and fined for cheating.

He rejected the notion that KU required money to counter such malpractices and these are rumors spread by disgruntled students.

Already students fees for exams cannot meet the requirements of the university expenditures which are more than Rs200 million.
