Entrance test by NTS declared unlawful

LAHORE, May 24(Dawn): The Punjab law department on Wednesday declared admissions to public-sector universities through entrance tests by the National Testing Service (NTS) without any legal effect, ruling that this could be done only after making requisite amendments to the universities' admission regulations.

According to the comment obtained by Dawn, the admission to various courses in the public-sector universities was to be regulated under the admission regulations of each university framed in accordance with the provisions of their respective laws. Generally, there are similar provisions for making admission regulations in the laws of the public-sector universities in the province.

The provisions of the university law provide that admission regulations may be prepared and proposed by the academic council of a university and the same should be approved by its syndicate. Each university is entitled to adopt its own admission policy through admission regulations.

Making the admissions contingent or conditional with the appearance in NTS tests without incorporating corresponding amendments to the admission regulations of the universities "will not be in accordance with laws governing affairs of these universities."

Furthermore, the law department declares, a university is a body corporate under its act or ordinance and recognised as an autonomous body under the Punjab Government Rules of Business, 1974. Compulsory pre-requisite of NTS cannot be imposed on the universities unless they change their own regulations in accordance with the provisions of their respective laws.

It says there is no proof on record that any public-sector university has modified its admission regulations to make the NTS tests compulsory for admissions.

"Once an authority in a university takes any measures or passes any order, the governor in his capacity as chancellor may revise the order on the grounds of illegality in exercise of his revisions jurisdiction. However, in the performance of his functions as chancellor, the governor is bound to act in the same manner as the governor of province acts and is bound under Article 105 of the Constitution," it adds.

"NTS not only gives a fair chance for every candidate for the admissions for higher education in large number of diciplines but it also provides an opportunity to win Scholarship for the educational expences and stipand for the candidates. I think it is good for the poor students."

"nts tests will only have any real substance if they are treated as the entrance tests for different universities. unless it will prove to be additional burdon on the mind and pockets of the students. the govt must take quick steps in this direction otherwise it will be taken as another trick to favour the non deserving."

"I have a strong belive that nts will do nothing but it will only make difficult for average students to get admitted in Masters programmes specialy in the field of "Business Admnistration" and it will also lesser the chances of entrance into universities for Backward areas like D.G.Khan And bhawalpur. so it must be stopped at once to protect the rights of "remote areas"."

"I am in favor of NTS since it is a good step towards admissions, so that everyone taking only one test gets the aptitude evaluation for admissions in any University affiliated with NTS instead of taking separate tests for each university. it is true that it is a newly introduced testing system, and I agree that there must be ammendments made to its criteria, and it should be appreciated so that it is further strengthened. There should be more universities affiliated with it and more and more improvements should be made for its testing methodologies. bye"

"According my point of view, nts is not suitable for an underdeveloped country like pakistan where more then 60% people lived n rural area.how they can get information abt test and its pattren?its mean v r going to reduce our litracy rate&people of backword areas may b backward for ever.so please dont follow the developed countries educational system do somthing for the betterment of own country in right way according our internal situations.thanx.may God bless our country.amin"

"i have given the test of nts.from my point of view there should be no entry test to get admission in any university either from an agency like nts or departments of any university.imean a hard working students who studies for 12 years and works really hard and gets good marks good enough to get him/her admission in any university.but then this entry test comes in the way.i think entry test is slap in the face of merit.making any type of entry test mandatory means rejecting hard work of students.i,m strictly against entry test and it should be abolished."
