Peshawar University re-admission policy
UoP's re-admission policy: Privilege for some, pain for others
Peshawar, July 05, 2008: Usman Ali burnt the
midnight oil to pass graduation examination with good grades so that he could
get admission in the master's programme in the University of Peshawar, but he
His name appeared in the waiting list when merit list for
admissions in the programme was displayed.
"Had only one candidate
withdrawn his admission application, I would have been selected," the
22-year-old boy from Shaidu village of Nowshera district said.
Later, Usman Ali, who belongs to lower middle class, came to know that
three of the enrolled students in the Sociology department (where he wanted to
get admission) already have a Master's degree of the UoP. Although frustrated,
he was unable to do anything except waiting for another year for getting
admission in the next session.
The issue of allowing admission as
regular candidate in parallel programmes to those students who have already done
their Master's has created hindrances for other aspirants.
candidates for post-graduation programme of the University of Peshawar have
strongly criticised the policy of the institution to allow students to get more
than one Master's degrees in the capacity of a regular candidate.
Ali Shah, who recently took his bachelor's examination and intends to apply for
admission in Journalism department of the UoP, resented the 'unfair' decision of
the university administration.
"If a person continues getting one after
another Master's degree from the university as a regular candidate, it means
that he has snatched opportunity for higher education from other aspirants," he
The youngster demanded of the authorities to ban the re-admission
of Master's degree-holders in the university in parallel courses.
Department of Journalism and Mass Communication Assistance Professor Dr
Altafullah Khan said that the problem needs to be seriously
considered by the administration.
By following this policy, we are
depriving talented students of the opportunity for higher studies. Moreover, in
most of the cases those who seek re-admission have political affiliations and
turn problematic for the administration, observed the senior academician.
He suggested that the university should give chance to students from
far-flung areas having no facilities.
However, the UoP, administration
regards its re-admission policy as sole right of the students. "We can not stop
them from getting re-admitted in the university as per laws," the administration
said, adding that the basic aim of the second stream education was to provide
the students with a chance to improve their academic records.

KMU teachers resent vacancy ads under HEC rules
Peshawar: The Khyber Medical College (KMC) teachers association has demanded of the Khyber Medical University (KMU)
to withdraw its advertisement inviting applications for the vacant teaching
posts in the university (under the Higher Education Commission (HEC) rules).
The KMU has advertised the new posts as per the HEC rules, which the
teaching staff of the university and its affiliated colleges are opposed to.
A meeting of the association was held at Khyber Teaching Hospital (KTH)
which through a resolution condemned the advertisement of posts under HEC rules,
said a press release issued by the association here on Friday.
advertisement of the posts has resulted in severe frustration and resentment
among the KMU-affiliated teaching faculty, said the release.
that the association had approached the provincial government for review of the
'controversial' HEC rules for promotion of teaching faculty. The provincial
government had earlier agreed that in order to address the promotion issue of
the teaching faculty, all medical teaching institutions of the province will be
affiliated to the KMU.
It may be noted here that in the KMU-affiliated
colleges HEC rules are implemented, whereas in non-affiliated institutions,
Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC) rules are applied.
medical teachers claim that HEC rules are less favourable to them and deny
promotion to senior faculty members, whereas those who are dealt under the PMDC
rules are in advantage.
They are demanding uniform rules for all the
medical teaching institutions. Daily Times
