The Board of Intermediate Education Karachi (BIEK) has announced special examinations to allow students to improve their grades to be eligible to apply for admissions to universities.
Chairman of BIEK Dr. Saeeduddin announced the decision on Wednesday and said that the special examinations will help the students in the Pre-Engineering group who had gotten D or E grades in this year’s Intermediate examinations.
He added that the schedule for special examinations will be announced soon.

Dr. Saeeduddin said that the special examination will be a golden opportunity for students who want to improve their grades in order to pursue higher education and that the candidates be able to apply at universities next year after improving their percentages.
He disclosed that over 10,000 students had received Ds and Es in the Pre-Engineering Part—II results in November. Of these, 6,605 had gotten Ds, and 3,450 had scored Es.
Overall, 24,170 had taken the Intermediate Part—II examinations, of which 22,119 (91.51) percent had passed. A total of 3,080 students obtained A-1s, 2,123 got As, 2,852 had passed with Bs, and 4,036 had obtained Cs.
