The Aga Khan University Examination Board (AKU-EB) announced the annual examination results for its Secondary and Higher Secondary School qualifications, which showed that 63 per cent of all high achievers were girls.
This year too, the AKU-EB awarded one national level position for SSC and HSSC qualifications each, and provincial level overall and group-wise top three positions for both SSC and HSSC. Ahmed Wali from Aga Khan Higher Secondary School, Gilgit, achieved National Level Overall First Position in HSSC and Wareesha Khan from Sindh achieved National Level Overall First Position in SSC. Young Ahmed Wali noted: “AKU-EB does not assess students’ rote memorisation, no matter how much you try to memorise books. It is the conceptual learning I focused on when preparing for the examinations. AKU-EB has not constrained me to the textbooks, it has taught me how to live.” Wareesha Khan, national high achiever from Sindh, said: “I feel fortunate to be a part of the AKU-EB education system.
I was assessed for my intellectual ability, for conceptual learning and not for memorising the information given in the books.”
For the HSSC qualifications, the first positions at the provincial level were awarded to Ahmed Wali from Gilgit Baltistan, Sana Muftah from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Saleha Abid from Sindh, and Bareera Nasir Ahmad from Chenab Nagar.
