Medical colleges pre-entry tests, IoBM testing or NTS
Karachi, June 07, 2008: The Institute of Business
Management (IoBM) may be chosen to conduct the pre-entry tests of around 12,000
MBBS candidates for 1,000 medical seats at the Liaquat University of Medical
& Health Sciences (LUMHS) and its five affiliated medical
The Islamabad-based National Testing Service (NTS) has been
conducting the pre-entry tests for all medical universities, medical colleges,
general universities and engineering universities throughout the country. The
Karachi-based IoBM, which has been conducting pre-entry tests for the Karachi
Medical and Dental College (KMDC) for the last six years, has offered its
services to conduct the same test for LUMHS.
A team from LUMHS and its
three affiliated colleges, including LUMHS Vice Chancellor Prof. Dr Noshad A.
Shaikh, Chandka Medical College (CMC), Larkana, Principal Prof. Dr Sikandar Ali
Shaikh, Mahar College, Sukkur, Principal Sardar Ghulam Muhammad, Prof. Dr Azeem
Hussain Yousfani and other officials, visited IoBM, Karachi, on Friday, to check
LUMHS decided to switch from NTS to IoMB after a recent
announcement by NTS that it was increasing the pre-entry test fee by Rs 200 per
student, said Prof. Dr Noshad A. Shaikh, the LUMHS VC. "We were also getting
complaints from some students that they not marking their papers fairly. In the
meantime, we received an offer from IoBM, so, we decided came for a visit to see
the facilities they have to offer," said Shaikh.
The pre-entry test is
the most important procedure for candidates seeking admission to MBBS
programmes, as the Pakistan Medical & Dental Council's (PMDC) rules say that
50 percent of the selection depends on the results of the pre-entry test, 40
percent of the marks obtained during Intermediate studies and 10 percent on
Matriculation, said Prof. Dr Sikandar Ali Shaikh, the CMC principal. "After
getting complaints about the NTS, we could not longer go through them and
decided to check with IoBM instead," he added.
During the visit, IoBM
President Shahjehan S. Karim briefed the team that IoBM has its own question
bank and team of experts for the MBBS pre-entry test, in addition to machines to
check the papers.
Shaikh said that there are 1,000 seats for medical
students in LUMHS, its two attached medical colleges, Dental and Medical, and
three affiliated colleges including Chandka, Nawabshah and Ghulam Muhammad Mahar
Medical College. He also noted that this is a preliminary visit and LUMHS has
not yet decided to hand over the pre-entry test to IoBM. "We will sit and
discuss the issue with all the principals of our affiliated colleges," said
Noshad Shaikh. He added that the NTS is based in Islamabad and, thus, sometimes
they face difficulties in trying to contact them. They have therefore decided to
choose an institute from Sindh.
The National Testing Service (NTS) used
to announce the results of the pre-entry tests within three days, but IoBM has
said that they will take a week. "They [IoBM] said that the tests will be
checked by the machines first and than the experts, thus taking more time," said
a team member.
The principals of LUMHS affiliated colleges seem to be
satisfied with this change. "When the pre-entry test for the selection of MBBS
student was introduced, the IBA took charge of conducting the test for the first
year. The result was great but started to change when the test was shifted to
Bahria, and, later, to NTS," said Prof. Dr Assadullah Mahar, the principal of
Sardar Ghulam Muhammad Mahar Medical College, Sukkur, adding that he felt that
the IoBM test pattern is better than that of the NTS. Daily Times
