Punjab delays 4-year BA degree plan

LAHORE, July 27: A controversy over the mode of examination, ill-equipped libraries, lack of teacher training and poor conditions of laboratories is seriously hampering the Punjab government plan to introduce a four-year bachelor's degree programme in selected colleges of the province.

A meeting to review the introduction of the programme was held at the Punjab Education Department a couple of days ago, where the participants expressed their sorrow over its delay.The meeting, attended by representatives of the Education Department, the Higher Education Commission (HEC) and various universities, observed most selected colleges lacked the required infrastructure.
