Exam malpractices ended, claims KU controllerAugust 4, 2014
KARACHI: Controller of Examinations University of Karachi Dr Muhammad Arshad Azmi has said that there had been clear reduction in malpractices such as undue changes in marks and exam cheating in the university.
This should be noted that there have been complaints of amendment being made in marks sheets from tabulation (a record maintained by the university for verification) in the university.
The controller told PPI that he could ensure that nobody could get issued marks sheet or degree from the University of Karachi, illegally.
Without the permission of controller there is no chance of alteration in tabulation. So, in past if there were such complaints the involvement of concerned staff could not be ruled out, Azmi said.
He said that some people did try to influence upon him through political parties; however, whoever contacted him in this regard was rejected and convinced politely, which they agreed upon. Strict action had been taken during exams against cheating and hundreds of students were caught red-handed while cheating and they were fined for the malicious activity.
He rejected the notion that KU needed money that was why this behaviour was adopted and said that it was just a blame being put by incapacitated people.
“Students’ fees for exams could not meet the requirements of the university’s expenditures which are of more than Rs200 million,” the controller said.
