Criticism over Punjab medical colleges admissions

Medical colleges admissions : FSc students protest likely A-Level quota
Lahore, Oct 7: FSc students held a protest demonstration on Tuesday against the possibility that 200 seats might be reserved for A-Level and other non-FSc students for admission to medical colleges.

They said it was a violation of the rights of students who studied in the local system. The students gathered outside the Lahore Press Club. They were holding placards and banners, and chanted slogans against the quota system. The students criticised the University of Health Sciences (UHS) for taking two kinds of tests, one for FSc students, and the other for non-FSc students. Wafa Muhammad, a position-holder during the last FSc examination, was one of the protesters who urged Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif to ensure the students were not discriminated against.

Discrimination: Wafa said that she had serious reservations against special seats being reserved for students, as it was an infringement of the rights of those who deserve admission on merit. She said the concerns of students who believed they had been set out-of-syllabus questions should be addressed. She, however, opposed the idea of reserved seats for A-Level students.

The UHS had held separate tests for FSc and non-FSc students. The non-FSc students accused the UHS of foul play and said 40 out of the 220 questions were out of the syllabus posted on the UHS website. The syllabus was later removed from the website. Shahzeb, an A-Level student said that the non-FSc students did not demand 200 reserved seats in medical colleges. He said they just wanted justice for the discrimination by the UHS. He said the non-FSc students were demanding that the government form a committee to assess the damage done to students who were set out-of the course question papers.

"giving 200 seats to alevel students is a fair justice....if the uhs had set a paper based on the syllabus they provided than none of alevel students wud require a seperate quota of seats...but as the paper was set far beyond wat was in the syllabus...alevel students deserve those 200 seats..."

"A LEVEL STUDENTS DO NOT DESERVE FOR ANY QOUTA SYSTEM.BECAUSE IN PREVIOUS ENTRY TESTS ALL STUDENTS WERE EXAMINED ON FSc SYLLABUS SO THE ONLY SOLUTION OF THIS PROBLEM IS TO INCREASE THE NO OF SEATS IN MEDICAL COLLEGES OR START DOUBLE SHIFT. "

"the open discrimination nt allocating seats to alevels students but not giving them the rites that fsc student have been enjoying for years such as course limited to a book entrance test from book what more can u wish for even then the so called many high attaining student of fsc are unable to get admissions to medical colleges showing their capacity as future failures justice would be to to outline a total new course for mcat as in (usa0 states so both the systems a levels and fsc may have to face the same problems over preparations and then it becomes easy ro assess the better students and on merit"
