Entrance test to be held on August 13
Lahore: An orientation seminar on medical colleges' admission test at Allama Iqbal Medical College (AIMC) was held on Friday and the entrance test for admission to public and private sector medical and dental institutions of Punjab will be held on August 31 in 13 cities.

Speaking on the occasion, University of Health Sciences (UHS) Vice Chancellor Maj. Gen. (r) Prof Muhammad Aslam said the entrance test kits would be available at UHS and other public sector medical colleges of the province from August 04 while last date for submission of application would be August 09.

Around 2,000 students and their parents attended the seminar while AIMC Principal Prof Mahmood Shaukat was also present.

The participants were informed that the 150-minute test would start at 9:00am simultaneously at Lahore, Faisalabad, Multan, Rawalpindi, Bahawalpur, Gujrat, Gujranwala, Sialkot, Sargodha, Sahiwal, Dera Ghazi Khan, Rahimyar Khan and Hassan Abdal. The centre of Sialkot has been added this year on the direction of Chief Minister Punjab, UHS VC added.

The candidates will be allowed to choose the city from where they wish to appear in the test. However, centre once allotted will not be changed subsequently.

Prof Aslam advised the candidates to reach their respective centres at least one hour before the commencement of the test with their admission cards because nobody would be allowed to enter the venue and examination centre without a valid card issued by UHS. All centres will be sealed at 8: 15am and after that nobody would be allowed to enter the examination hall.

The candidates, securing at least 60 percent marks in FSc (Pre-Medical) or equivalent examinations and having domicile of any district of Punjab, Islamabad, and Gilgit-Baltistan, will be eligible to take the entrance test. Those awaiting results should provide a Hope Certificate issued by the principal of their respective institution clearly stating that the candidate was expected to secure at least 60 percent marks in the FSc or equivalent examinations.

UHS Vice Chancellor said there would be a single question paper consisting of 220 objective-type questions divided into four sections: Physics (44 questions), Chemistry (58 questions), English (30 questions) and Biology (88 questions).

A candidate will answer the test by filling the circles on the response form. Only one circle must be filled for one question. Filling more than one circle for single question will be considered a wrong answer. There will be negative marking in the test and for each wrong answer one mark will be deducted from the total score. Each correct answer will carry five marks.

There will be question papers of different colours codes in which the questions and their answers will be shuffled to avert the cheating.

The code of the paper will be identified by the first question which will be mandatory for every candidate to answer. This question, which will be marked as 'Q-IB', will not be part of the evaluation.

Prof Aslam advised the candidates not to bring any calculator, cell-phone or notes with them inside the examination hall. "Candidates are only allowed to bring blue ballpoints with them and not any markers, pointers or pencils," he added.

After the test, candidates will be asked to take an aptitude and feedback test for which extra 30 minutes will be given to them. The aptitude test will have no importance for the entrance test scores, said Prof Aslam.

The UHS will continue with its "Self Scoring System" and upload the answer keys of question paper on its website on the same day after the test. The candidates will be able to calculate their scores with the help of carbonised copy of their response form which they will retain after the test, he said and added that the answer keys would also be published in national dailies the next day.

Quoting regulations of the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC), Prof Aslam said the merit of a candidate would be worked out by adding the marks of matriculation, intermediate and entrance test in the ratio of 10:40:50 respectively.

He added that after the entrance test, only those candidates who would score at least 82 percent aggregate marks as per Pakistan Medical and Dental Council formula, would be eligible to apply for admission on open merit seats.

However, the condition of minimum 82 percent aggregate score will not be applicable to those candidates who apply against any category of the reserved seats.

He said that on special direction of the Chief Minister Punjab, there had been no increase in entrance test charges and annual tuition fee of medical and dental colleges this year as well.

Responding to a question, UHS VC said the Punjab government had decided to conduct the entrance test one month ahead so that the selection list for public sector medical colleges could be displayed on 30th of October as per PMDC's regulations. After the display of list on 30th of October, private sector medical colleges could advertise their admissions.

There are total 3,022 MBBS open merit seats in 17 public sector medical colleges and 175 BDS open merit seats in three government dental colleges of the province.

Besides, there are 09 seats reserved for candidates of Sindh, 06 for KPK, 26 for Balochistan, 49 for Azad Jammu & Kashmir, 64 for Gilgit-Baltistan, 17 for FATA, 85 for foreign candidates on regular fee basis, 76 for foreign candidates or self-finance basis, 20 for disabled candidates, 61 for candidates of six underdeveloped districts of the Punjab, one for Cholistan and one for Afghan refugees living in the province.

Concern over entrance test before FSc results
Lahore: Prospective students of medical and engineering programmes have expressed concern over the conduct of entrance tests for admission to medical colleges and engineering institutions before declaration of Intermediate Annual Examination 2014.

The results are most likely to be declared by all the nine Boards of Intermediate & Secondary Education (BISEs) on September 3. On the other hand the combined entrance test for admission to engineering institutions of Punjab for BSc Engineering and BS Technology is scheduled for August 24 while the entrance test for medical institutions will be held on August 31. Over the past few years, the University of Health Sciences (UHS) and University of Engineering & Technology (UET) which conduct entrance test for medical and engineering institutions, respectively, have been organizing the tests prior to declaration of intermediate results.

The candidates who want to appear for the tests have been directed to submit "Hope Certificate" from heads of their respective institutions stating that the candidate was expected to secure at least 60 percent marks in FSc or equivalent examinations. A number of students who got such "Hope Certificates" shared their experiences in getting the same after a tiresome process and paying related fee. According to them owing to the ongoing summer break, it was hard to find relevant person/s on seat while the process also required more than one visit to their respective institutions hampering their preparations for the entrance tests.They demanded Chief Minister Punjab Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif to look into the issue and provide relief to the students. They also demanded that the institutions should be barred from collecting any dues for "Hope Certificates" and it should be provided on priority basis. They demanded that if the government could not ensure conduct of entrance test after declaration of results it should at least make the rest of the process hassle free. The news
