PU teachers and IJT oppose entry tests system

LAHORE, May 30(Daily Times): The Punjab University Academic Staff Association (PUASA) and the Islami Jamiat Talaba (IJT) on Tuesday opposed the entry test system for admission to the varsity and asked the PU administration to adopt the open merit policy.

PUASA President Dr Mumtaz Salik said that the PU teachers should openly oppose the entry test system adopted by the varsity for admission to BA/BSc and MA/ MSc programmes. He said that the PUASA at a meeting on Tuesday had passed a resolution against the system. The PU administration introduced the entry test system last year and the National Testing Service (NTS) conducted entry tests. He said that there was no justification for conducting entry tests because many students who got good marks in examinations could not pass entry tests.

Dr Salik said that the Federation of All Pakistan Universities Academic Staff Association would oppose the system at all public universities of the country. "The university should make admissions on open merit," he added. IJT PU chapter nazim Muhammad Ayub said that the IJT was against the entry test system because it was against the spirit of competition. Ayub said that the IJT had opposed the entry test system at the PU last year and it would also do so this year.
