Illegal exam center scam termed “the tip of the iceberg”

Karachi: The raid on illegal examination center in Shah Faisal Colony Karachi on Thursday was just the tip of the iceberg as such malpractices are widespread in various areas of Karachi, said sources in Board of Secondary Education Karachi (BSEK), adding dozens of ‘agents’ are working to provide their illegal services to students for getting desirable results in Matriculation exams.

“Black sheep in BESK mint up to Rs100 million every year by extending their services wealthy and influential students and their parents to get them good grades in exams in connivance with corrupt staff and officials. A student has to pay about Rs3000 for getting ‘passed marks’ or above in one paper while up to Rs20000 for getting all papers cleared. For getting better grade a candidate has to pay a bribe of about Rs5000 per paper.”
