Edwardes College Peshawar (PAKISTAN)
The subsequent research investigates the swift rise in the adaptation from O/A levels which is the British education system to the intermediate system (the national education system) of Pakistan. Seekers consider that intermediate stream upsurges the probabilities of getting admission in medical and engineering colleges as the intermediate system in Pakistan operates according to the fundamentals of science colleges. Moreover, reduction in the overall marks obtained in the British education system at the time of entry test by the Inter Board Committee of Chairman (IBCC) also dispirits the students to pursue in this stream. However, both structures have almost similar years of learning but differ in their learning patterns. O/A levels comprise a motif of conceptual learning. On the contrary, intermediate stream is entirely an annual based system where students are analyzed on the basis of their exam attempting abilities. Furthermore the British education system is even challenging to bear the expenses keeping in mind the economy level of Pakistan. O/A levels are considered to be as a status symbol in Pakistan. This study explores as to how successfully students are profited after conversion from O/A levels to intermediate stream. A sample of 100 students within the vicinity of Edwardes College Peshawar, Pakistan were engaged as the case study that has shifted from O/A levels to intermediate stream within the last five years (2010-2015). A quantitative survey method was used to acquire responses from the respondents. The outcome advocates that 25% students, who convert, significantly reach their target of study. 50% students scuffle and face strain to cope up with the memory based learning. Left over25% students achieve either average grades or fail their exams.
