The Intermediate Board Karachi has released the list of colleges according to which not a single student in 38 colleges could pass the exam.

He further said that the colleges have been directed through letter to improve the quality of education.

In this regard, Director Colleges Dr. Muhammad Ali Manjhi while talking to The Express Tribune said that higher secondary schools are also included in the released list. All debris should not be dumped on colleges onlly.

He said, comparatively the number of students in the science group is less than the number of students in other groups, so the passing ratio of science group students is also low.

He said that, we will try to ensure the attendance of students and teachers in the schools and colleges.

Besides this, recruitment of subject specialists will be made to improve the quality of education, he added.

Meanwhile, according to the education experts, the massive failure of students in intermediate exams can be attributed to the Covid pandemic.

In 2020 during lockdown students were promoted without sitting in exams. Moreover, in 2021 the matric and intermediate students were required to appear in optional subjects only and declared pass in compulsory subjects like Urdu, English, Islamiat, and Pakistan Studies.

Year 2022 saw the students who passed in 2020, known as ‘Covid pass’ faced real exams that could be one of the reasons for a high number of failures.
