Government colleges BA / BSc admissions

Male students failed to get admission in govt colleges
Rawalpindi, Jan 17: A large number of students who recently passed the supplementary intermediate examination are running from pillar to post to get admission in BA/BSc classes in the government colleges, but all their efforts are going in vein as government colleges have closed their admissions.

On the other hand taking full advantage of the situation, private colleges have increased the admission fees in their respective colleges and are giving admission to those students in BA/BSc who can afford the fees.

The students who are from well off families and can afford the fees have obtained the admission, but others who cannot, fear that their precious time will be wasted if they will not get admission this year, as they have to wait for next session to get admission in government colleges.

A number of parents said that government should devise a solid policy and at least increase the number of degree colleges for boys where they can get admission even after passing the supplementary examinations. They also bemoaned the apathy of the government in failing to check the private colleges, who increase their fees at will without any reprimand from the concerned authorities.

A principal of a government college, on condition of anonymity, said that there is a rule that students after passing the supplementary examination can apply for admission within ten days after announcement of the result. He said that although there are some 8 to 10 vacant seats in his college, he will not announce them, as it will become very difficult for the management to adjust large number of students. "But despite this I have huge pressure of large number of students who are coming with references, but I cannot afford to accommodate all of them," he added.

Ali Javed, a student said, "I have passed the supplementary examination and got first division. But I have tried in all the government colleges, but failed as the admissions have been closed. The students who have strong references are getting admission over there." He said that private colleges have also increased their fees and are taking full benefit of the situation. "Now I have to wait to get admission in a government college till the start of next session, as I am not in a position to bear the high fees of private colleges," he added.

District Education Officer (DEO) Colleges Ulfat Mahmood Janjuwa said that a student has around fifteen days to apply for admission after announcement of supplementary examinations. žBut a large number of students fail to get admission as most of the seats are filled before the announcement of supplementary examinations results and the Punjab University also closes the date for further admissions.

He also admitted the fact that the students who come with strong references are accommodated in colleges. The news

Army's role in Pak education
Lahore: Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani has said the army is not only defending the borders and combating terrorism but also rendering valuable services in the fields of education and health.

Mr Gilani said that representatives of the 70,000 Pakistani doctors serving in the US and Canada had offered advisory services aimed at developing the country's health sector.

Academic institutions like the Army Medical College, Rawalpindi, National University of Science and Technology and National Defence University had not only earned international acclaim but also set new standards in Pakistan, he said.

Mr Gilani said he was impressed by the facilities made available at the CMH medical college. "The excellent environment and the great architecture here show the military's dedication to medical education," he said.

The prime minister announced a grant of Rs100 million to the college. The corps commander of Lahore presented a replica of the college to Mr Gilani.

Lt-Gen Bakhshi, who is also the patron of the college, said its main objective was to improve the existing infrastructure and services at the CMH and to promote professional standards in the field of medical education.

The college, he said, had been established in three years at a cost of Rs1 billion. The campus also had a dental college, a hostel for 348 students, well-equipped laboratories and a museum.

Lt-Gen Bakhshi said postgraduate programmes would soon be started at the college. APP

LCWU student's suicide, Admin policies come under fire
Lahore: Students of the Lahore College for Women University (LCWU) on Sunday grieved the loss of one of the university's students, Munazza - who committed suicide on Saturday - and criticised the policies of the administration, saying that LCWU students were living with stricter rules as compared to other institutions.

A tense environment was observed in LCWU, as a number of students visited the college on their off day to honour their fellow student. The students demanded an inquiry into Munazza's suicide, saying that both students and parents were concerned over the incident. They condemned the LCWU's examination department's policies, saying that administration officials do not provide them with any guidance.

A student residing in the LCWU hostel, seeking anonymity, said that students at the hostel were in shock after hearing news of the suicide. She said that girls in LCWU had to face stricter rules and regulations as compared to other institutes. She said that the controller of examinations does not hold orientation sessions and she does not like to meet with students. She said examination department officials had misbehaved with parents, looking to seek information on any issue, on numerous occasions.

One of Munazza's classmates said that the entire class was shocked at news of the suicide, saying that it was unbelievable that Munazza would even consider committing suicide.

She alleged that LCWU was the only institution where teachers manhandled students, claiming that a number of students had been manhandled and roughed up by the college administration last year when a ban was imposed on using cell phones.

However, LCWU administration said they had only gotten to know of the suicide through the media. An official at the university said that students were reacting strongly to the suicide, adding that both parents and students are inquiring about the university's stance on the issue, but no administration official had showed up on campus on Sunday to explain the official view.

LCWU Chief Proctor Dr Surraiya said it was unfair to claim that administration officials were responsible for the suicide, adding that there must be "some other reasons" for Munazza's suicide. She said that hundreds of girls had given exams over a number of years, but none of them had committed suicide due to the administration's behaviour.

Dr Anjum Zia, official spokeswoman of the LCWU, said the university was not aware of the reasons for the suicide, adding that the administration had learned of the incident after reading about it in newspapers. She said the complete story of the suicide would be revealed today (Monday), when the staff would be present on campus.

First-year student Munazza, 19, had hanged herself at her Qutbuddin Aibak Road residence on Saturday. According to information, she had been upset after one of her teachers refused to help explain some of the questions in her exam. The teacher had scolded Munazza, telling her to come prepared for exams in order to get better grades. Daily times

For the first time since the establishment of the institute in 2001, gold medals and commendatory certificates were given to top three position-holders.

Later, the VC distributed 15 gold medals and 15 commendatory certificates amongst the IBIT students demonstrating outstanding academic performance during the academic sessions from 2001 to 2006.

The students presented humorous skits which were greatly enjoyed and appreciated by the audience. Lucky draw was also held and prizes were distributed amongst the winners.
