ISLAMABAD: Parents have urged the Federal Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (FBISE) to extend date for the admission and registration process of Intermediate Part-I as they were unable to complete admission formalities due to the Inqilab and Azadi sit-ins.
The merit lists have been displayed at the colleges but due to non-availability of public transport, the parents could not complete the admission formalities which include undertaking on stamp paper, resident proof/ lease agreement etc, besides academic certificates.
Shahid Khan, a parent said, “The sit-ins have crippled the admission process of first year in the Capital city so FBISE should extend admission dates fixed by them in June 2014.
According to the notification issued by FBISE on June 18, 2014, the affiliated colleges were allowed to finalize their admissions till August 30, 2014 without late fee. They were allowed to complete their admissions in the colleges up to September 9, with special permission fee of Rs 600 and with the permission of chairman FBISE. The last date for registration was September 30.
The educational institutions of the city were to reopen on August 11 after summer vacations, but the FDE rescheduled the reopening of the educational institutions thrice due to sit-ins in the federal capital.
Talking to APP, President Federal Government College Teachers Association (FGCTA), Professor Sagheer Ahmed Mirani urged the authorities of FBISE to extend the admission and registration date to facilitate the students and their parents.
He said the ongoing sit-ins of marchers have disturbed the academic routine of the students and they must be given some concession.
