The Administrative structure of the Board consists of two sectors under
which different branches are functioning. There are 264 sanctioned posts
out of which 240 have been filled up and 24 posts are lying vacant.
i) Holding of Examination :
The basic and most important responsibility of the Board is to hold timely
and crystal clear exams and in time declaration of results. With the grace
of God, the Board has been successful in fulfilling this responsibility.
Formerly, The board had been holding exams for Metric/Intermediate/Oriental
languages. But since 1993, the Education Department of the Govt. of the
Punjab(Controlling authority ) has laid down the responsibility on the
Board for taking the exams of OT/CT/PTC and Art and Craft. The Board has
been holding all the said exams satisfactorily and in a peaceful environment
and their results are also declared well in time.
ii) Method of Exams:
For the information and facility of the candidates, the approved schedule
for holding the different exams and bank admission forms are posted to
the heads of the educational institutions affiliated to the Board well
in time. Newspapers and radio also advertise it. The admission forms for
regular candidates are received personally by the representatives of the
heads of the institutions from the Board. The admission forms for the
private candidates are made available by the Board through the H.B.L situated
in Bahawalpur Division.
The received admission forms are registered . They are classified as Regular,
Private, sex, group, district, Tehsil wise. The exam cell, according to
the scheme of studies and Board rules and Regulations allot the Roll Numbers
and exams centers in accordance with the demand/nearest to the residence
of the candidates after strict checking. The roll number slips are issued
about 10-15 days before the start of the exams. Formerly, all this process
was completed manually. But since 2003, it is done through computers which
have made it not only rapid and graceful but it has also become more fool
proof and crystal clear.
In view of the facility and demand of the candidates, the exams centers
are established nearest to their residences. With the recommendation of
heads of educational institutions/EDO’s/DEO’s the teachers
with good reputation are appointed as supervisory staff in the exam centers
Teams consisting of Board Members and Mobile squads are arranged to check
the performance of the supervisory staff and to make the process of exams
more crystal clear. With the help of local administration, Police is also
appointed at every exam center. This step has almost eliminated the practice
of unfair means and exams are held in peaceful environment.
