Girls top AKU-EB’s SSC & HSSC exams

Karachi—The Aga Khan University Examination Board (AKU-EB) has announced results for its Secondary and Higher Secondary School Certifications for the May 2016 examination session. According to the results, girls have taken top positions in SSC and HSSC exams for the fourth consecutive year.
The overall passing rate for SSC Part I has been 85.5% with 46.7% of candidates scoring ‘A’ grade and above. Meanwhile, the overall passing rate for SSC Part II was 88.8% with 55.6% of candidates obtaining ‘A’ grade and above.
Alina Fatima from the Al-Murtaza School, Karachi and Hira Naz from Aga Khan Higher Secondary School, Kuragh (Chitral, KPK) scored 93.36% and secured the first position for the Secondary School Certification (SSC). Alina also gained the second position in the elective subjects of the Science Group along with Ali Mehdi from IBA Community College, Khairpur.
“Although I was expecting good grades but it is really exciting to be an AKU-EB position holder from a remote area like Lutkoh, Chitral. I am aware that it is a challenge for females to get good education but I would like to thank my parents for their support and efforts. In the AKU-EB system we learn how to apply our learning in daily life which makes us confident about our knowledge. In the future I want to be a Neurologist. I am also eager to do philanthropic work in under privileged areas of country,” Hira Naz said.
Ruhaina Nadeem from Nasra School (Malir Campus) secured the second position for SSC with a score of 93.18%.
