KPK SSC Exams Result 71% of students from Government Schools Failed

The aspirants of private schools clinched top three positions in SSC annual exams result 2017 announced by BISE Mardan board on Tuesday.

Only one student from a government school has made it to the list of top position holders in the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (BISE) Mardan in the Secondary School Certificate examinations. Moreover, 71% of students from government schools failed the exam.

These trends are at variance to a series of claims made by Minister for Elementary and Secondary Education Muhammad Atif Khan during a meeting with the private schools association last week. Muhammad Atif had said the standard of education in government schools across the province has improved over the years. He said the parents now prefer to enroll their students in government schools.

The examination results revealed that most government school students passed with very low percentages.

In a similar vein, in Nowshera – the constituency of Chief Minister Pervez Khattak – only a few students from Government High School Pashtun Ghari managed to pass the exams where the school’s overall passing rate was less than 30%.KPK SSC Exams Result Report

Mark of failure

Speaking to news, Shafiq Gigyani, an education expert, said the results served as an ever-present testimony of the failure and the incumbent government in boosting the standard of education.

He said the politics amongst teachers in government schools also adversely affected the performance of the students at these schools. “More than 25 teachers organisations are operating across the province,” he said. “On the other hand, teachers have no time to teach.”

He added only 29.5% students in the arts discipline passed the 10th grade exams.

“This means at least 71%students in the government schools failed the exams,” he said.

He pressed the government to focus on improving education standard at schools and take immediate steps to ensure the presence of teachers at institutes.

“They should also focus on teachers’ training and capacity-building in government schools,” he added.
