Thousands of students of class six, seven and eight of Ghotki district faced problems because of shortage of question papers and unavailability of answer sheets during the annual examination-2013 held by the Administration of Education Department.
In district Khairpur, the scheduled examinations of class six, seven and eight were postponed on Monday due to alleged leakage of the question papers.
An official links shortage of question papers and non-provision of answer sheets to mismanagement of the authorities concerned.
The office of district education officer Ghotki did not provide question papers according to the number of students who appeared in the examination and only one paper was provided for three students while all the candidates were deprived of answer sheets.
The students were compelled to buy answer copies for Rs20 each on their own. The situation confused students and many of them could not solve their papers in the four talukas of Ghotki district, including Khanpur Mahar, Khangarh, Daharki and Ubauro.
