Tuition centres in Lahore begin NTS exam classes

LAHORE, May 30(Daily Times): Many tuition centres in the city have started preparatory classes for entry tests conducted by the National Testing Service for admissions to universities.

A survey conducted on Tuesday revealed that tuitions centres were offering one-month or 45-day programmes for the preparations of entry tests. Many tuition centres have advertised their entry test programmes in newspapers and displayed banners. Most tuition centres are charging from Rs 2,500 to Rs 4,000 for the preparation of entry tests. Rana Academy near Punjab Civil Secretariat has offered a 45-day special programme to students for the preparation of entry tests for the Punjab University for Rs 4,000.

Talking to us, Prof MA Rana, the principal of Rana Academy, said that the academy had started classes for entry tests' preparation. He said that he could not comment whether entry tests were good or not. Prof Sohaib, a teacher at Scholar Academy near Outfall Road, said the entry test preparation classes had started at the tuition centre. Ahmed, a BA student, said that he was planning to join a tuition centre for the preparation of entry test because he wanted to get admission to the PU Political Science Department.

Falak, a BSc student, said that the entry test system was unjustified and that it was a financial burden on students belonging to poor families. "The government should adopt the open merit policy," he added.
