Colleges start admission even before BISE results
Lahore: While the result of Intermediate Annual Examination 2012 has yet to be
announced by all the eight boards of intermediate and secondary
education (BISEs) of Punjab, several public and private colleges and
universities have started offering admissions to undergraduate
This haste on part of the educational
institutions not just highlights lack of monitoring and indifference on
part of Punjab government but also hassle the students will most likely
be exposed to owing to not announcement of results by closing dates for
admissions approaching fast.
Punjab University (PU) last
week announced pre-admission entrance test schedule for various academic
programmes, including BS programmes, for which passing intermediate
examination is prerequisite, and July 10 was set as last date to submit
entrance test forms by the university. While on Sunday the Kinnaird
College for Women also advertised its admission schedule for
undergraduate, postgraduate and MPhil programmes according to which July
16 is the last date to submit the admission forms.
Punjab University and Kinnaird College, a large number of private
colleges and universities have also already advertised admissions for
It is learnt that the BISEs in
Punjab would announce the result of Intermediate Annual Examination
2012, on the basis of which students would be eligible to apply for
undergraduate programmes, around August 25, 2012. One wonders what stops
education institutes from offering undergraduate admissions after
results of intermediate.
A number of students and their
parents expressing concern over early admissions by educational
institutes urged the Punjab government to wake up and take notice of the
situation. They believe this haste by education institutes is causing
great unrest among the students who are still in the dark about fate of
their intermediate results. The stakeholders argue that such rampant
admission offers will also cost them financially as the students would
have to buy prospectus and admission forms etc of many institutes
despite the fact they were unaware of their intermediate exam's result.
"It would have been better provided the institutes had announced
admissions after announcement of results," said a student, Tauseef, who
is waiting for his result of intermediate exam.
to him, admissions after results are always ideal as students know their
marks obtained and can plan for admissions accordingly keeping in mind
merit to be set by colleges and universities.
student said if the admissions were offered after announcement of
results the students would have been in a better position and would have
applied for undergraduate programmes cautiously especially in terms of
It is pertinent to mention here
that a couple of years ago the Punjab government had formed Punjab
Higher Education Council (PHEC) which, besides many other tasks, was
mandated to streamline the admission process and ensure uniformity to
facilitate the students seeking admissions to colleges and universities.
However with no active presence owing to sheer apathy on
part of those responsible, the PHEC has almost become a redundant body.
The stakeholders have urged the Punjab chief minister to look into the
issue of early admissions by colleges and universities and also take
action against those responsible to make PHEC a redundant body.

Students urged to be aware of new UK visa rules
Lahore: Renowned education consultant Syed Abidi has advised Pakistani students, looking
for opportunities of study at small private colleges in the United
Kingdom and other foreign countries, to be careful in selecting study
destinations in the wake of new restrictions being put in place,
especially by the UK.
In an exclusive interview, he warned students not to take risks as visa regulations would not
allow such colleges to recruit students under the recent restrictions
which might impact many small colleges issuing Confirmation of
Acceptance for Studies (CAS) letters or offer letters in the years to
Syed Abidi, who is Chief Executive Officer of Falcon
Education and Consultancy Services, talked in detail about changes –
such as procedure of visa application; English language requirements;
course duration for which visa is issued; status of spouse of PhD
students; post study work; paid part time work; online submission of
visas; and interview requirement, etc.
IELTS or no-IELTS, he said, all Pakistani students would now be
interviewed by the British High Commission (BHC) Islamabad for visa. He
said all student visa applications shall now be submitted online. The
information given once could not be changed which means all applications
should be done after careful examination, he advised the students.
the paid part-time work, Abidi said students taking their degrees and
diplomas at private colleges would not be allowed to work part time.
"However all public sector colleges and universities will allow students
to work part time but closely monitor his/her attendance and
whereabouts for a report to be sent to UK Border Agency (UKBA)
regularly", he said, adding that students therefore should not depend or
think they can work more than the allowed hours to support themselves.
said spouse accompanying a student shall also be restricted to work
part time and the student shall have to produce evidence of his/ her
living expenses for the period of study in the UK.
he said, part time jobs for students were not available easily and even
qualified people were not finding jobs from floor level upwards.
veteran education consultant said the responsibility of universities as
sponsors had therefore been greatly increased, saying, "It is expected
that private colleges which are not highly trusted sponsors will be
abolished by the end of this year."
About the post study
work opportunities, he said, "Post Study Work (PSW) visa scheme has been
gradually withdrawn and future students may not get PSW. They will have
to transfer to Tier 1 status."
Abidi, who is also the
Chairman of Association of Professional Education Consultants of
Pakistan (APECOP), said previously students going for Pre-sessional
English language courses or foundation programmes followed by their
degrees were given full duration visa. "This is no more available," he
added. Students completing their three or six-month English courses, he
said, would now be required to reapply for degree
duration from the UK or outside. To a question, he said all this was
being done to bring down the number of international students,
especially from South Asia and control illegal immigration.
the visa processing time, he said the UK student visas were now being
processed within two weeks or ten working days which was quickest turn
around when comparing with any other country.
a question about hub and spoke programme, Abidi said: "The hub is now
back to Islamabad and all student visa are now being processed at BHC
Too another question about family visa,
especially for Pakistani nationals who wish to live permanently or
remain in the UK through the family migration route, he said certain
changes would come into effect from July 9, including increase in the
salary threshold from GBP 18, 000 to GBP 22, 400 per year. He said
families joining spouse would now also require proving their English
language through tests/ courses, like "Life in the UK".
about student visa by Australia, Abidi said that Australian government
had recently announced a new student visa process called Streamline Visa
Process (SVP) under which the responsibility had been shifted to
universities to assess ability of a student to live and study in
Replying to another question about average per
year cost (including tuition and living cost) in different foreign
countries he shared the following information (depending upon courses
and universities): for UK 20,000 GBP, for United States $ 30,000, for
Australia 25,000 Australian Dollars and 30,000 Canadian Dollars for
Syed Abidi emphasized the need for delivering
in-country degrees by foreign institutions and awarding bodies for those
Pakistani students who could not afford to travel abroad, especially
under increasing visa restrictions and rising Sterling Pound and US
dollar exchange rates in local market.
He also suggested
good public and private universities in Pakistan to seek international
collaborations and restructure their degrees to incorporate foreign
standards and quality and offer dual degrees locally to the students.
examples, he said many good ranking British, Australian and American
universities had now established either their own campuses or were
offering their degrees in Dubai and Malaysia at a reasonable low cost as
compared to the tuition fee and living cost currently applicable for
Pakistani students in the UK, the USA or Australia.
termed courses, such as Foundation in Accountancy (FIA), ACCA and
Higher Diploma in Accountancy (HDA) as a route to professional
qualifications in Accounting and Financial Management and urged
educationists and those connected with academia to adopt and launch
other professionally recognized courses in Pakistan which might help

qualifications while living in Pakistan.
mentioned Institute of Commercial Management (ICM) and Association of
Business Executives (ABE), saying such courses were now available in
Pakistan through accredited centers connecting to undergraduate and
postgraduate degrees worldwide.
Answering another question
on major and niche subject areas having better future opportunities
both in Pakistan and outside, the APECOP chairman said one should now go
for specialty areas such as Islamic Banking, Risk and Financial
Management, Actuarial Sciences, Development Studies, Energy Management,
Franchising and Supply Chain Management, etc.
interested in science and technology, he said, lots of opportunities
existed in telecommunication and mobile engineering, internet security,
micro electronics, advance manufacturing systems. In medical and health
sciences, he added, students should look at cellular biology, virology,
biotechnology and biomedical sciences, etc.
Falcon Education and Consultancy Service, Abidi said was the only
company in Pakistan which promoted and provided free career counseling
for prestigious institutions and did not charge any fee for admission or
visa processes for universities and institutions it represented

could affect the wellbeing of the mother as well as the newborn. He
said that because a newborn's vitamin D level depended on the mother's
vitamin D status, deficiency during pregnancy could lead to rickets
(bone softening and weakening) in the child.

associated with an increased risk of numerous complications, including
gestational diabetes (high blood sugar during pregnancy), preeclampsia
(pregnancy induced high blood pressure) and bacterial vaginosis (an
