Admissions on merit: PU
Lahore: Clarifying a news item published in a section of press regarding admissions to an M.Phil programme, the Punjab University spokesman on Saturday said that the admissions would be made strictly on merit as per the policy of the Higher Education Commission and PU Doctoral Program Co-ordination Committee.
The spokesman said that a committee, including dean of faculty and six senior PhD teachers, had been formed at Institute of Communication Studies (ICS) to ensure transparent admissions. He said the propaganda was being made by some corrupt elements against which corruption charges had been proved in inquiries.
It is pertinent to mention that as per M Phil admission criteria; there are 40 marks for candidate's academic qualification, 40 for entry test, 10 for interview and 5 marks each for experience and publications. The basic eligibility criteria for admission are first division in MA/MSc and GAT General with at least 50 percent score.
The spokesperson said the DPCC had provisionally allowed those M Phil and PhD candidates who were already scheduled to appear in NTS (GAT) test and their result was expected on August 26 and September 2 respectively. However, the spokesman said, the candidates were bound to submit their result of NTS on August 27 and September 03 respectively. The spokesman said that PU M Phil/ PhD admission policy was available on university's DPCC website. The PU spokesman only stated that admissions would be held only on merit but did not clarify why the PU had not publish those changes it had made in a meeting of Doctoral Programme Coordination Committee (DPCC) and Academic Council, held on July 09, through which it provided relief to those candidates who had not even appeared in the recently held GAT test to apply for admissions. There is no answer to the query why PU Academic Council and DPCC had made those changes in haste without intimating direct affectees i.e. the aspirant students. Had PU published those changes in media when they were discussed it could have provide relief to thousands of students who could get a chance to apply for admissions to different disciplines, including MS/M. Phil and PhD programmes to as many as 50 departments of the PU.
The spokesman did not say even a single word about those aspirant students who had submitted their admission forms even after the expiry of the due date i.e. July 12, a violation of all rules and regulations of admissions. The News stands by its story.
