Inam ul Haq
Aspiring candidates appearing in the competitive examinations often complain that the selection boards prefer candidates with good communication skills and a shining academic track record. I strongly believe that good marks are the greatest indicator for someone’s performance and communication skills have a major role in performance of selected candidates.
But this very exercise of selection boards deprives many eligible candidates from employment. Many candidates coming from rural and far-flung areas, especially Balochistan cannot communicate well during interview. Selection boards should have a tender corner towards these students. These candidates often come from ‘Tat Schools’ and apparently cannot compete, at least in terms of communication skills. Some very shining students have been facing this issue for decades. I feel that equal opportunities should be provided to the students of all parts of country to have a just ans equitable system of competitive examination.
