In a critical move, BIEK brings in machines to check MCQs

KARACHI: The Board of Intermediate Education Karachi (BIEK) is upgrading itself on many fronts ahead of their upcoming annual examinations which commence from June 18 (Saturday).
There are several changes, all for the better, happening at BIEK these days making the examination board standout among many other Intermediate boards of the province and everything is being done to facilitate the process of examination.
As is known already, this year’s examinations are based on three components — 40 per cent multiple choice questions (MCQs), 40pc short answer questions and 20pc long answer or theory questions. And most of the work in correcting the papers or answer sheets is now going to be done by extremely fast coding machines.
“That way we have managed to remove most human interaction while also unburdening the teachers,” BIEK chairman Dr Saeeduddin shared with Dawn.
