Aga Khan University Examination Board: Why Female Education Matters - Girls Consistently Make Pakistan Proud!“The AKU-EB team congratulates all candidates for their hard work. We at AKU-EB strive to develop higher order cognitive skills such as critical thinking in our students and firmly believe that, assessment is a driving force for new ways of learning. We strive to provide access to a qualification of the highest quality to the remotest parts of the country and to marginalized groups, and we are honored to say that our hard work pays off when our students make us proud through their performance. Congratulations to all once again!” – Dr. Shehzad Jeeva (Director, AKU-EB)

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

“The performance of my student Ms. Hira Naz has doubled my self-confidence, confidence on my team, students and parents. We highly appreciate the support and coordination from AKU-EB in every aspect. The trainings provided by AKU-EB are of high quality and prepare teachers for a higher level of teaching and learning.”- Bibi Sultana (Principal, Aga Khan Higher Secondary School, Kuragh (Chitral))

“AKU-EB has made wonderful efforts in raising the quality of education and assessment across the country. Getting the overall first position in SSC at the country level is a great achievement by Hira Naz which has made the Chitral proud. This is a great milestone achieved by a talented student form the remote area of Lutkoh, Chitral.” – Dr. Inayatullah Faizi (Educationist and Writer).
