Abstract: Curriculum at the college level is prescribed at provincial level to ensure a standardized education throughout. A prescribed curriculum aligns educational standards and maintains them to ensure teaching standards. In Pakistan the curriculum for intermediate students at both private and government colleges is designed and proposed by Sindh Bureau of Curriculum. The curriculum designing process by Sindh Bureau doesn't recognize teachers' role in the curriculum development process. There are several problems that teachers face when implementing this curriculum in colleges. Teachers of private colleges face a lot of problems in implementing this curriculum. This study aims to explore these issues in teaching a prescribed curriculum. A qualitative paradigm is adopted to probe into teachers' perceptions on a standardized curriculum. Five private college teachers were interviewed to determine these issues which highlighted disconnection with real life, lack of resources and teaching challenges related to the Intermediate curriculum. Findings from this study implies that the missing role of teachers' involvement in curriculum development process needs to be recognized and an updated curriculum is required to meet educational needs of college students in Pakistan.
