"Cheating must end and the multiple choice questions mode of examinations alone is no solution because in that case teachers will guide students to file this or that answer," remarked Dania.

"Cheating must be controlled as it is spoiling future of students," she said.

She complained that adequate facilities should be provided to students in examination halls.

Amir Ali Drigh who secured the third position in Science group with 785 marks said that comparatively O-level studies were tougher than secondary school certificate examination.

Drigh who was highly critical of theory-based examinations said he devoted around six hours daily to his studies and advised his fellow students to do the same.
