KARACHI: Hundreds of supplementary exam students remained in disarray as University of Karachi Examination Department failed to announce the result before admission this year.
This year supplementary exams were held after a long period of seven years. Controller Examination KU Arshad Azmi had earlier said that the process of results would be expedited to facilitate students and he had told the reason of holding the examination to save one year of the students.
However, the students of graduation (Arts, Science and Commerce) were still waiting for the results when the dates of National Testing System (NTS) test of different departments were announced and passed by.
Sources from the examination department told that due to burden of workload the examination department failed to bring out results timely.
Arshad Azmi said that students who took supplementary exams could apply for admission without the results (which was neither announced by the university nor the students had any idea about that as the supplementary was being held after ages).
Touqir Sabir, 22, father of a son, who manages to make both ends meet by teaching tuitions, he could not prepare well for one subject of Bachelors of Science part II and resultantly had to take supplementary, said that he had been waiting for long for the announcement of result and my father was regularly asking me to what happened.
“So, whenever I contacted the university to inquire about the results they only replied negatively without any further information. Had I known that I would lose one year in any case why I would have chosen to take supplementary, while I could better prepare for annual,” he said.
Now, result of NTS test has been announced and it was last day of admission on 22nd December for open merit, which offered only limited subjects.
