UHS entrance test for medical admissions 2011

Common entrance test for MBBS, BDS seats on Sept 13
Lahore, Aug 06: University of Health Sciences (UHS) Vice-Chancellor Prof Malik Husain Mubashar says only one common entrance test will be held this year for admission to medical education institutes.

The test will be held simultaneously in Lahore, Faisalabad, Multan, Rawalpindi, Bahawalpur, Gujrat, Gujranwala, Sargodha, Sahiwal, Dera Ghazi Khan, Hasanabdal and Rahim Yar Khan on Sept 13.

Dr Mubashar said this at an orientation seminar on admission to medical colleges at Alhamra Arts Council on Friday. Up to 3,000 candidates and their parents attended the seminar.

He said there would be one paper consisting of 220 multiple choice questions: physics (44 questions), chemistry (58 questions), English (30 questions) and biology (88 questions). Each candidate will have to encircle the right choice in a

question. The duration of the test will be 150 minutes which will begin at 9am and conclude at 11:30am.

He said after the test, candidates would take an aptitude test and fill in a feedback form, for which 30 minutes would be given to them. He said as the aptitude testing was being introduced for the first time in medical entrance tests, it would bear no marks this time. However, from next year, some marks would be given to aptitude testing in the entrance test score.

The VC said the candidates who had scored at least 60 per cent of marks in FSc (pre-medical) or equivalent examination were eligible to apply for the entrance test. Those awaiting result should provide a hope-certificate issued by the principal of their institution, clearly stating that the candidate was to secure at least 60 per cent of marks in his/her examination. Candidates having a domicile of any district of Punjab, Islamabad, Azad Jammu and Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan are eligible to take the test.

He also said there would be no fee for medical entrance test and entrance test kits would be available free of cost at the UHS and other public medical and dental colleges of the province from Aug 20. The last date for submission of application is Sept 7. The candidate will be issued a roll number slip and an admittance card at the application desk.

Prof Mubashar said the candidates would be allowed to choose the centre but they may not change it once a centre was allotted to them.

He advised the candidates to arrive at the centre wearing their admittance cards one hour before the commencement of the test as the examination halls would be sealed at 8:15am. He also said each wrong answer would cost one mark while every correct answer carried five marks.

He asked the candidates not to bring any calculator, cell phone or notes with them inside the examination hall. "Candidates are allowed to bring blue ball point pens with them," he added.

He said the UHS would continue with its self-scoring system introduced in 2009. The university would upload answer keys on its website as soon as possible after the test. The candidates would be able to calculate their scores with the help of a carbon copy of their response form which they would be given after the test, he said, adding that answer keys would also be published in national dailies the next day.

According to the regulations of Pakistan Medical and Dental Council, the merit of a candidate would be worked out by adding the marks of matriculation, intermediate and entrance test in the ratio of 10:40:50, Prof Mubbashar concluded. The news

Private transporters gain access to KU campus
Karachi: Some private transporters have been enjoying the failure of the transport system of the University of Karachi (KU) as now a number of private vehicles have gained access to the KU premises offering pick-and-drop services to the students.

There are conflicting accounts over who has granted the private transporters access into the campus and if the university administration is to charge a fee from these transporters.

According to one source, after the mushrooming of private transporters at the university premises, the administration of KU had decided to collect some fees from these transporters.

The source said it was decided to collect Rs5,000 per vehicle per year from the owners of the private transporters.

"The idea is to earn some money which could later be ploughed into the KU's transport system. The administration has decided to charge on account of entry pass once at the start of the academic year," he said. The administration of the KU, on the other hand, appears to have no knowledge of the people who had been collecting the amount from these transporters. There was no record available which could show the collection of annual fees from the owners, an official said.

There is a group of senior officers in the Administration Block who believe the university has started minting money by allowing private transporters in. There were no documents available which could show that these transporters have permission to run their vehicles in the premises of KU, they said.

If the service providers had a right to operate within KU, they should have to pay the fees. In case they were paying the fee, the question was who had been collecting the fee and who was keeping a record of it, they asked. An officer of the KU Transport Committee said the department had nothing to do with this. The traffic on the campus was the responsibility of the KU security and any query in this connection was to be directed at them, he said.

1,400 students suffer at new college building
Karachi: After being forced to vacate their spacious building, 1,400 students of a public-run college have moved into a smaller campus and as a result, the education of these youngsters could very well suffer.

Over at the new campus in Bakra Piri in Lyari, the attendance of students, teaching and non-teaching staff is almost negligible. Their old campus, which sprawled over four aces and had 12 classrooms as well as eight laboratories, was handed over to the Benazir Bhutto Shaheed Medical University. As a consequence, the students were forced to shift to the much smaller Monotechnical College building.

One of the reasons for the lack of activity at the new campus is the uncertain security situation, coupled with the fact that transport is barely available, one of the lecturers said that while choosing to remain anonymous.

Earlier, in March/April, the education department issued a notification to shift the Government Degree Science and Commerce College Lyari to the KMC College located on Nishtar Road, he added. The first floor of the KMC College was given to the management of the Lyari College and the administration shifted most of the furniture to the KMC College.

However, the notification was withdrawn and orders were issued by the education department to transfer to the monotechnical institute, he mentioned. This technical institute was constructed almost four years ago, but due to the deteriorating law and order situation in the area, no one has taken admission.

According to the students, they have to travel on a six-seated motorbike rickshaw as no other transport is available in the area. The only place one can get onto this vehicle is from the Lee Market. Anyone who wants to attend classes must come to the Lee Market as there is no other option available.

Armed men operating in the area openly loot passersby and students as well as other staff members of the college. The students, their parents and teachers expressed their concerns by saying that the college should be urgently shifted to another location to avoid further problems.
