UHS medical entrance test | PU MBBS exam shedule

Private colleges to resist UHS entrance test
Lahore, Sep 05, 2008: The private medical colleges have joined hands against the government's decision to make it mandatory for the candidates to take entrance test being conducted by the University of Health Sciences for admission to all public and private medical and dental institutions in Punjab. A meeting of representatives of the private medical and dental colleges in the province was held here in this connection at the FMH College of Medicine and Dentistry on Thursday.

The participants strongly recommended that the UHS entrance test should be applicable only to the public sector institutions in the province while the private ones should be allowed to continue with their admission process including entrance test as per guidelines of the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC).

"The private medical and dental colleges of the province should have due representation in the bodies at all levels of policy making with regard to medical education and health service delivery system," said a representative.

The provincial government's decision to hold entrance test under the UHS is aimed at regulating the affairs of private medical and dental colleges.

The candidates with 65 per cent marks in the FSc are eligible for the entrance test 2008-09. Earlier, the private medical colleges used to offer admission to the candidates having even less than 60 per cent marks.

A UHS spokesman said that the varsity was bound to implement the chief minister's directive to hold the entrance test for admission to all public as well as private medical and dental colleges in Punjab.

There are eight private medical and dental colleges in Punjab: Lahore Medical and Dental College, Lahore, FMH College of Medicine and Dentistry, Lahore, Lahore University College of Medicine and Dentistry, Independent Medical College Faisalabad, Faisalabad Medical College, Faisalabad, CMH Medical College, Lahore, Wah Medical College, Wah Cantt and Margalla Institute of Health Sciences, Rawalpindi.

All of them are recognised by the PMDC and affiliated with the UHS. "If these institutions are affiliated with the UHS then they should have no objection on the entrance test conducted by the varsity," the UHS spokesman maintained.

On the other hand, the Punjab government has decided to appoint provincial secretaries in all 12 centres proposed for the entrance test in the province as superintendents. On the two centers in Lahore, health and home secretaries will be the superintendents.

The UHS has received over 15,000 applications for the test against 2,156 MBBS and 157 BDS seats in all public medical and dental institutions in the province. Dawn

LHC allows 11 GCU students to continue studies
Lahore: Justice Hafiz Tariq Nasim of the Lahore High Court (LHC) on Thursday declared illegal an order of the Government College University (GCU), asking 11 PhD students to pass GRE (Graduate Record Examination) test before continuing their studies.

The petitioners, including Usman Hashmi and Naveed Aslam, submitted that they obtained admission for a four-year PhD programme on December 28, 2003.

They said that when they passed the third year of their course, the university awarded them result cards that referred to their degree as M Phil/PhD instead of only PhD and also asked them to take the GRE test.

The students said that the university took a plea that the Higher Education Commission (HEC) had changed its rules so they had to clear GRE test before proceeding with their studies. The petitioners pleaded that the rules promulgated after their admissions could not be applicable on them. Justice Hafiz Tariq Nasim, allowing the petitioners to continue their PhD programme, ordered the GCU authorities not to ask them to appear in GRE test. Daily Times

Ex-BoP chief appointed PPSC chairman
Lahore: The Governor's House on Thursday approved the recommendation from the Chief Minister Secretariat to appoint former chairman of the Bank of Punjab Shahzad Hasan Pervaiz as the Punjab Public Service Commission chairman on officiating basis, dispelling the impression that it had any rift with the latter on vital administrative issues.

The post of the PPSC chairman had been vacant for over one and a half months and now the Punjab government has again appointed an officer as its chairman on a temporary basis. The Governorís House is said to have moved a summary to the CM Secretariat for the appointment of a new chairman immediately after the retirement of outgoing chairman Tariq Sultan most probably on July 22. They are attributing delay in the appointment of a new chairman to the CM Secretariat.

It is further learnt that Punjab Governor Salman Taseer had reservations over the appointment of a comparatively junior officer Shahzad Hasan Pervaiz as the PPSC chairman on officiating basis. Shahzad Hasan Pervaiz is picked by the CM Secretariat down the list as he is on the eighth number in the seniority list of the PPSC. The sources stated the governor wanted to appoint the most senior officer as the on permanent basis. Nevertheless, he approved the summary to avoid any further controversy with the CM Secretariat which could affect the functioning of the PPSC and cause inconvenience for the public.

Shahzad Hasan Pervaiz joined the PPSC in November 2007, immediately after leaving the office of scam hit Bank of Punjab as its chairman. He was appointed the Bank of Punjab chairman by ex-CM Ch Pervaiz Elahi and held the office for three years. After he left the BoP, it faced severe crisis owing to the financial misappropriations.

The insiders attribute his appointment as the PPSC chairman despite being down in the seniority list because of the Kashmiri network which brought him close to Sharifs.

It is also learnt that incumbent senior member of the Board of Revenue Syed Safdar Javed, who is in grade-22 and nearing his retirement, is eyeing the post on permanent basis. Safdar Javed, who belongs to the first common and is the most senior officer in Punjab, has been working at the post of SMBR for the last five years.

Earlier, the official circles were attributing the delay in the appointment of the PPSC chairman due to ongoing tussle between the Governorís House and the Chief Minister Secretariat.

Nevertheless, the Governorís House has dispelled the impression stating that they had sent a requisition to the CM Secretariat one and a half month back. They said they had received summary pertaining to the appointment of the PPSC chairman four days back and the governor had signed it on Thursday.

When contacted, Secretary to the Chief Minister Dr Taqueer said the CM Secretariat had sent recommendation to the Governorís House four days back. He said they had decided to appoint an officer as the PPSC chairman on officiating basis because they could not find appropriate officer against the post on permanent basis. However, he denied to name the officer to be appointed as the chairman saying it was confidential. The News
