FSc position holders fail colleges entrance exam
FSc position holders fail to secure medical or dental admissions
Lahore, Sep 18: All seven top three-position holders of the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education
(BISE) in their FSc (pre-medical) exams have failed to maintain their positions
for the entrance examination for medical/dental colleges.
of Health Sciences (UHS) on Tuesday announced the result of the entrance
examination for the medical/dental colleges across Punjab.
Of the 18,263
candidates, 16,487 secured more than 40% in the entry test and are now eligible
to apply for the 2,313 seats in the medical/dental colleges.
remaining, 1,558 candidates failed to secure 40%.
Those who managed to
secure the top positions in the entry test were not from Lahore and were also
not amongst the BISE FSc toppers.
Talha Niaz from Faisalabad secured
92.5% in the test and stood first. After having obtained 997 marks in his FSc,
he ended up with 1,034 marks in the entry test.
Khizra Mumtaz from
Multan, secured 91.9% and stood second in the entry test. After having obtained
1,010 marks in her FSc, she ended up with 1,006 marks in the entry test.
Fahad Zafer from Attock secured 91.64% and secured third position. After
having obtained 1,024 marks in his FSc, he ended up with 986 marks on his entry
Exemption: The toppers condemned the criteria of the entry test
and said that they should have been exempted from it in the first place, as
their failure to secure positions disintegrated years of hard work in just two
The students said that they were disheartened by the
entry test result and that they should be exempted by the government from such
types of entry tests.
Wardah Malik, who topped the FSc, said that her
result was really disheartening for her, as she was not expecting it, adding
that the government should give special treatment to the position
Fizza Mubashir, who was third in FSc, said that she had wished
to apply for one of the 260 seats at the King Edward Medical University (KEMU),
but the entry test was so risky that now she might not be able to secure her
admission in KEMU as she in the 243th position.
Some students also
criticised the BISE examination system and said that due to the weak examination
system, they were unable to maintain their positions.
Nasir, who shared the third position in FSc, said that even though she had
secured the ninth position in the entry test, she was satisfied with her
progress, as the test was easy, adding that she was in the favor of such entry
BISE Examination Controller Manzoorulhasan Niazi said that the
students who were unable to perform their best in the test were suited to
explain their performance.
UHS Vice-Chairman Malik Hussain Mubashir had
earlier said that the entry test was not out of the students' course-pack and
was in accordance with the FSc standard.
The student and teacher
community has already condemned the entry test system on various occasions and
the chief minister formed a committee last month to review the status of the
test. Daily Times
"I secured 917 marks in F.Sc pre-Medical. And failed to get Admission in PMCs. I asked every one about the entry test and they said just get 80% of total and u will get admission in PMCs. I got 81.59% total wid 849 in entry test. Now tell me wst should i do. Where to go??? whom to contact??????? and what should be my Future Plans??????? i cant afford Private institutions..."

"i am the students who got above 80% marks in entry test & 81% marks in f.sc but couldnt got n.i am amongst the few students of federal board who managed to get A-1 grade in f.sc.Most of the students of federal board couldnt acheived this because of the toughness of papers,even some questions are not from f.sc standards.In 1st year we couldnt got any choice in the papers.My question is from authorities that isnt it right to compare f.sc marks of fbise students with other boards and to make merit list accordingly who cleared easy papers with full of choice."

"Well, FSc position holders not being able to secure admission in the medical colleges is not a surprising news! Last yearthe same thing happened in the UET admissions test. And are these FSc position holders angels that they should be exempt from the entry test. Why? Is FSc an international qualification? Just memorizing notes and books doesnt mean that they are knowledgable than the other students. An A-Level student who has acheived straight As can easily defeat an FSc student who has got 1000+ marks because A-Level is based on concepts, novel or even unheard of by FSc students. Teachers in my college (Crescent College) repeatedly stress the level of understanding of A-Level students which is much much better than FSc students!!"
City, Country: Lahore, Pakistan
"I M agree with this committee and not in favor because of the committee members taking money for admission up to Rs.70,000.00 from a student to give admission in the college in which he/she wants and giving favor to their friends and relatives. The committee members did not follow the letters of Education Minister and any other minister of PPP. I appeal to the Chief Minister of Sindh, Governer of Sindh, Prime Minister, and President of Pakistan to restore the previous admission policy and withdraw CAP ordinance/bill at the earliest."

"I dont understand the reason why FSc position holders failed to clear the test! This has not happened for the first time. Last year this happened in ECAT. But what about A-Level students? Arent they Pakistanis? If FSc students have got positions and good marks, A-Level students straight As. They work extremely hard, even harder than their FSc counterparts! Why should FSc position holders be exempt from the test? And now BISE Lahore and other boards award more marks than ever before, 1000+ is no problem! Just have to learn! Thats all! More than 90% in English is getting common? Is FSc English so easy?"

"well after reading all the comment above and being an a-1 grade student of FEDERAL BOARD ( in bold because dude its possible it may be hard but its your job to study all your syllabus)once i sympathize with the toppers. it must indeed be very disheartening for them and no doubt they must have woked hard on their terms..its not their fault as the teachers the course and the examination pattern provided to them is ,i dont think up to the standards of this entry test that they eventuall have to face,,, however it also is a fact that the entry test really picks the intellectuals for the colleges...it may be so that there is some corruption but i wont blame anyone as i dont have a proof and neither should anyone else unless they have one...well coming to the point i think our govt. should transfer our mode of education to that of cambridge system so atleast the students are prepared to face the entry test and also they dont have to spendddd wicked amout of money for the tutions for entry tests..its shameful how the teachers have made this a business playing with the emotions of crazy to be a doc. students and their parents...but kids entry test is a good thing if you want to be a doc you have to study thorough and understand what you read not ecluding ay of your syllabus its hard i admit but its fair to those who spend day and night covering all teh syllabus:) and also i know it might not seem like this to u right now but abhi ishq kai imtihaan aur bhi hai mbbs is not teh end of life abhi tu life shuroo hui hai...eplore new upcoming fields..best of luck i hope your lifes bring whtever is best for you all..."

"Ithink MCAT should not be abolished because it gives another chance to repeaters and there is nothing out of course in MCAT I also availed an oppurtunity to sit in examination hall of MCAT and secured 1015 marks and i think it is upto the mental level of students."

"Well first of all i would like to say that the pakistan education system STTTTIIIINNKKKK Its the worst education system all over the world!!!!!!!! The members of our education ministry are not educated people( well by their policies, they never do seem educated!) they are just those ordinary red tomatoes with cruddy spectacles n bald heads!!!, who themselves are matric(science) fail and claim that they know how to teach us engineering!!!!!!!????? Please dont make me laugh!!!!!!!!!All you members are criminals, who have ruined lives n futures of millions of students during the last 60 years!!!!!! Now coming to the awful education ( so called system): First of all the federal board has no such reputation or as u say in ur mother tongue( in ki koi auqaat nai hai) to make an equilance of the cambridge system!!!!!!!!! im a student of o levels, i got 1A at 93% N 7Bs at 89%, not all As but very close, my computer project stood third in the cambridge!!!!!! My father has dealt with these matters of universities and he told me to switch over to fsc so that i will have no prob of equilance and will have majority seats, + im an o levels student and can secure a result in the entry test!!!! I thought it might be the same as in cambridge but slap me everyone i was soooooooo wrong!!!!!!!! I have lost my aptitude and now i have doubts on my own abilities, my confidence is below sea level, i have to face helll discrimination!!!!!!! my fellows in fsc(not less than a bunch of mr so called einstein A.K.A rattu parrots) all the time barking" hey have u crames this, hey have u cramed that?" its lyk they eat texts of their books for dinner!!!!!!!!!!!! and wen we put a conceptual question infront of them! as expected they are without a single clue!!!!!! and instead of admitting that we are betr who know the answer, they call us story tellers!!!!!!!!!!!!! "We make our own concepts"!!!!!!!! just take a look at their thoughts!!!!!!! teachers, students and the environment, wen u switch from cambridge to federal board shit!!!!!! to come to know y ur country is soooo far behind the world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it seemed to me dat lyk ive been thrown from a VIP boeing to a village!!!i dnt have much more time, but i surely will complete my part of the insult for u federal board!!!!!!!!!!!!! in the end" Cambridge students are the BEST" and will surely excel u!!!!!

"I did my O levels with 5as and 3 bs-A is for 90% and abv while b for 80% and abv and seeking admission in best colleges was very difficult!!althogh cambridge students have to face really tough questions and use their minds, as understanding a question is a question itself in o lev.I sought admisson for fsc just coz of the fact that a lev students get their marks deducted in equivalance.at the time of admission we were compared with students who had done matriculation from fed and even other boards!WHAT SORT OF JUSTICE IS THIS!!!in equivalance they convert 95% to 85% ignoring the fact that we have to give papers that are manier times difficult than thiers.in the end i wud just say that o lev student has to go through many hardships even if he gets straight As when u convert the marks they are not more than 892 as our marks are deducted in equivalance ,i dunno on what basis.and now doing fsc i ve heard tht fedral board is the toughest than y is it compared with other boards. all boards should be made equal.and for the o/a lev student there shud be equal no of seats as for the matric/fsc ones. i dont know when are these people going to realize that o lev students have to go through so much difficulties and still they make them equal to BISE.students ive seen in fsc are just rote learners,they dont have much good concepts and students of o lev face difficulty in rote learning.the first step shud be the eradication of rata system as it is by no means a way of success.

"well! scoring marks as per hardwork is possible in federal board but so not always true in bise punjab because its syestem is not free of corruption,not that everyone takes position by corruption,they surely would have done hardwork but for cramming nd learning prepared notes and entry test is a way to know the real capability and it does justice in a true sense.position holders are not special to b exempted from entrance test.i myself am a position holder but couldnt get nice marks in entrance test doesnt mean that i would ask the syestem to consider me special(ridicolous)!so i would say other position holders to except the reality that they were not actually studing with clearing concepts."

'HEC has not cleared teachers of plagiarism'
Lahore: The Punjab University (PU) administration has contradicted
a news report published in a section of the press that the Higher Education
Commission (HEC) has cleared the teachers concerned from the allegation of
The PU spokesman clarified the names of the PU plagiarist
teachers on Wednesday, who were sent on compulsory retirement after having
blatant evidence of plagiarism against them. They were removed from the HEC
website only because the HEC had put up those teachers' names on a blacklist of
those who had committed plagiarism but had not punished by the competent
authorities. Since they have already been punished by not being university
teachers any more, then it is irrelevant to publish their names on the web site,
The HEC website provides detailed information of the
blacklisted teachers in its quality assurance option under the head of

teachers were punished after thorough enquiries regarding plagiarism against
them. With the backing of the Academic Staff Association (ASA), they denied the
facts and were not ashamed for more than 90% of the stolen tests that have
