NWFP medical, engineering colleges entrance tests

NWFP announces dates for medical, engineering entrance tests
Peshawar, July 16, 2008: Entrance tests for admissions to engineering and medical colleges will be organised on 17th and 24th of August respectively in Peshawar, Bannu and Abbotabad, said an official release issued here on Tuesday.

The decision was taken during the 18th meeting of the board of governors of the Educational Testing and Evaluation Authority (ETEA), an autonomous body responsible for holding entrance tests for engineering universities and medical colleges, held at Frontier House in Peshawar.

The board decided to hold a meeting of the co-ordination committee to be chaired by the home secretary a week ahead of the entrance tests in which all the responsible officers of the concerned departments will participate.

A committee consisting of the provincial minister for higher education, minister for health, secretary higher education, secretary health and vice chancellor NWFP University of Engineering and Technology was formed for making entrance tests mandatory for admissions to private professional colleges and universities. The committee will hold meetings with heads of these institutes and will present its recommendations to the chief minister for approval. Daily Times

"I want to say that students who study in institutions under Federal Board, A.K Board and others educational boards of Punjab,who have to appear in the entrance tests, belonging to NWFP and A.K etc their course is almost totally different from the Boards of NWFP. Due to this they have to face many problems in their preparations.I want to ask from the authorities that why the syllabi of every province is different from the other.If nothing could be done then atleast some new books may be prescribed by the ETEA for the various tests.

"Hello to all, I want to say that in the entrance test the questions are mixed, there is no sequence of subjects as in the entry test of Punjab. There must be sections of each subject so that the students may concentrate properly on each section. Thanx "

Appointments against HEC rules
This refers to the false claims of Higher Education Commission (HEC) regarding the enhancement of quality and dual standards being observed in the appointment of university teachers. HEC boasts of a zero-tolerance policy regarding nepotism and it has set a formula for the appointment for teachers. But interestingly, in the appointment of Chairman, Department of Journalism and Mass Communication, Kohat University of Sciences and Technology (KUST), these things have not been taken care of. The present Chairman, Mr. Khalid Sultan, is a second divisioner in M.A. Journalism and according to HEC criteria, is not even eligible to apply for the post. He is an M. Phil in this discipline now but according to HEC rules, even a second divisioner having an M. Phil degree is ineligible.

Thirdly, he has been appointed Assistant Professor for which the criteria is to hold a first class first division in Masters or M. Phil with five years of teaching experience at the university level and two research papers published in an HEC recognized journal. Interestingly, the appointed person doesn't fulfill any of these criteria but is appointed due to the reasons better known to the Vice Chancellor KUST. Would the HEC take notice?
