O- and A-Level Results Announced
Karachi :August 14: For some the Independence Day celebrations were cut short but for many the joy was doubled as the Cambridge examination results were announced on Tuesday.
More than 8,000 students across Pakistan sat for the O- and A-Level exams in the May-June session. The students had to re-take the papers of O-Level Islamiat and Pakistan Studies after questions were leaked out in Pakistan. But the marks for the two papers were issued with the overall results.
Anxious parents and students crowded outside schools as early as 10pm. Many students had spent sleepless nights before the announcement.
You don’t understand. This is the most important day of my life. This will make or break my future,” said Marium Ahmed, an O-Level student.
For many students getting good grades meant availing the numerous scholarships that A-Level schools offer. “I managed to score two ‘A’s in my Advanced Subsidiary Level,” said an overjoyed Muzna Tauheed, who studies at The City School. “This means I get a scholarship in the second year [of A-Level] as well.”
Generally, A-Level schools guarantee scholarships to O-Level students if they are able to score good marks.
This calls for two celebrations tomorrow – Independence Day and my results,” said Moiz Ahmed, an A-Level student from the Beaconhouse School System who managed to get two ‘A’s in his A-Level.
Muzna Gufran from the Foundation Public School was content with having achieved two ‘B’s. “I am happy. Parents need to understand A-Level is tough. A ‘B’ is a very good grade,” she said.
While schools were still tabulating results till this report was written, some of them agreed to share their views with The News.

 

Mahvish Abrar, the assistant regional director at the City School said: “We are very happy with our results. The criterion for giving out scholarships is still under discussion.”

 

The City School has eight O-Level and four A-Level campuses in the city. “From Karachi, the highest number of students appeared from our schools.”
Huma Thaver, the principal of the recently launched A-Level section at the Dawood Public School, said: “I am very happy with my girls. They have made me proud. We received 100 percent results in most subjects.”
The Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) are offered at 500 schools across Pakistan. In a statement published on the CIE website, CEO Michael O Sullivan said: “We are honoured to be trusted with such an important role in the education of the young people of Pakistan. We take very seriously our duties to ensure that all the examinations which students take are fair and that all candidates receive a valid result.The news.
