Admission in the medical and dental collages of Peshawar

Over 10,000 sit medical college entry tests
Peshawar, Aug 25, 2008: More than 10,000 students desirous to get admission in the medical and dental collages of the province taken the entry test in Peshawar, Abbotabad and Bannu on Sunday, official said.

An official of Educational Testing and Evaluation Agency (ETEA), which conducts the test for the medical colleges of the province, said that around 7500 students appeared in the Peshawar, 2400 in Abbotabad and 770 students in Bannu centres to take the test, which was conducted to select candidates for 1072 seats in the medical colleges of the province.

The tests were held in the Colonel Sher Khan Shaheed Stadium Peshawar, Ayub Medical College Peshawar (AMC) Abbotabad and Akram Khan Durrani Medical College Bannu simultaneously.

The officials said that five seats have reserved for the Chitral, Lower Dir and Gadoon and 90 for FATA, seven for northern areas, four for Afghan nationals and 147 were for self finance students of 1072 seats.

Strict security arrangements were made for the entry test and students started to arrive at the venue advance of time announced by ETEA.

The ETEA had announced that the test would start at around 6:00am and students arrived at the venue earlier of the schedule, however, it got delayed for more than two hours and started at around 9:00am.

Most of the students, who had reached the venue two hours advance had to wait for more than four years in the heat as the ETEA could not ensure the time it had announced for the test.

Most of the students taking the test said that they were told to reach the venue in advance of scheduled time, but were made to wait for hours in the hot weather.

Mohammad Aziz from Mardan said that he has reached the venue at around 3:00am and the time for the test on their admission slips was 6:00am and it was to be strictly followed.

He said that the test has yet to start and they are facing lassitude due to longer than usual waiting for resumption of the test.

Another student said that the students had to go through body search, while entering the venue and it was contemptuous to search the students like criminals. He said that it was beyond comprehension to set the time at 6:00am, which is too early as students from far flung areas of the province were participating in the test. Daily Times

HEC launches advanced research network
Islamabad: The Higher Education Commission (HEC) has now launched the advanced Pakistan Education and Research Network (PERN) which has been connected to other global Research & Education Networks (RENs), viz the Internet2 of USA, Asia-Pacific Advanced Network of continents of Asia and Australia, and GEANT2 network of National RENs of European countries.

This link is a result of joint efforts of the HEC and the National Science Foundation of USA who equally co-funded a dedicated link from PERN to Internet2.

The PERN now has a total R&E link capacity of 155 Mbps and it is now leading in South Asia being three times bigger than the linking capacity of India's Education & Research Network (ERNet) which is connected to global R&E network over a 45 Mbps link.

Through this connectivity, academicians and researchers would be directly connected to other peer RENs, resulting in lesser delays and low latency with add on features of security and high performance for the specialized and time sensitive activities, like simulations on distributed resources, telemedicine and video conferencing, remote instrumentation, etc. Moreover, universities/ institutes now have access to the large contents and research resources available with the constituent academic and research institutions in RENs in advanced countries.

These include free online educational multimedia-on-demand, online library resources, access to supercomputing and grid nodes, collaborative tools, digital heritage, test bed for the future internet design, advanced network services' test bed for IPv6, multicast implementation, layer 2 virtual private networks (VPNs) etc.

The purpose of this network connection is to support Pakistan's science and technology collaborations with technologically advanced countries.

The network connections will greatly assist the scientific collaborations being defined between the developed countries and Pakistan by allowing more direct, high-speed access and communication among S&T investigators and worldwide S&T resources.

Two of the many examples are the High-speed access to the Bio-Mirror and other genomics based archive data hosted by Indiana University which is critical for genome research will be facilitated by this high-performance connection.

Similarly, this connection will allow more rapid access to data originating from the NSF funded Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES) project to assist the efforts of the Earth Sciences and Seismology WG.

The project of PERN was initiated in 2002 as an Educational Intranet by Prof. Dr. Atta-ur-Rahman. Since then the Network has evolved significantly and provides valuable services, like high speed internet, audio/video conferencing, access to digital library resources like journals, books and research thesis in digitalised format.
