Karachi: After interviews of candidates in connection with the appointment of moderators of examinations in Sindh education boards, the search committee disqualified all the candidates and rejected their names.
The controlling authority is recommending the issuance of new advertisements for the post of Controller of Examinations in all Sindh Education Boards including Karachi and recruitment on the basis of this. The decision was taken after interviews conducted by a search committee convened by Dr Qadeer Rajput.
Sources close to Mansoor Abbas, secretary of the Universities and Boards Department, told Express News that on the one hand, according to the advertisement, most of the candidates who were selected for interviews did not have any information about the examinations. And most of the B.Ed and M.Ed candidates relied on teaching experience rather than administrative experience.
Sources said that there was intense pressure from a Sindh government ministry to include some of the recommended candidates in the interview process, which led the search committee to conclude that the candidates were already ineligible for the post. By canceling this whole phase, the pressure of the ministry can also be avoided.
It may be recalled that the advertisement already issued by the former Secretary Universities and Boards for this post was against the recruitment rules of Sindh Boards of Education. In the advertisement that was given, the condition of education was B.Ed and M.Ed. In addition to the candidate’s master’s degree, it was also mandatory to have a Kabi Ed or M.Ed.
On the contrary, under the Act passed by the Sindh Assembly, for the appointment of Nazim Examiner and Secretary in the rules of the Board, it is necessary to have ‘Candidate Masters Degree Holder or otherwise 10 years of administrative or teaching experience with BA, B.Ed. Contains
