candidates who appeared at different centres in Karachi.
The NTS website informs

Recently, the Karachi University advertised admissions in MS
programmes at different faculties with GAT clearance as mandatory, leaving
hundreds of students who passed the tests in a state of uncertainty. It must be
remembered that mismanagement in NTS and HEC has become a routine matter but the
government has totally ignored these departments.
Zain, a graduate of
economics who appeared in the test on July 5, 2009 said that despite
several phone calls and emails, he did not receive any response from the NTS
He said "they are not paying attention to the problems of
students outside Islamabad" and added the mismanagement has shattered his dream
of starting for the MS programme this year.
"I called them many times but
they do not talk on the issue," said another student Mushfiq, saying the
authorities at least should have issued a notification explaining why the
results had not been issued.
This scribe also tried to contact the NTS
numerous times but no official was available for comments. Two emails were also
sent on their email address, but no response was received until the filing of
this report. Daily times

in this regard.
