Breaking New- HEC is Going To Launch Education Testing Council (ETC)
Higher Education Commission HEC has decided to launch its own free testing service in Pakistan. This testing service will provide its services free of cost to students. This testing service will provide admission test facility for all private and public sector universities and institutes of Pakistan. Name of this service will be Education Testing Service (ETC). Now NTS will have to face cut throat competition. We can proudly claim that we have put this suggestion almost two years before.
NTS takes almost 500 rupees from each candidate as a test fee. Lot of students and job seekers were complaining against National Testing Service. Some of them even contacted the courts against NTS. NTS was declaring the result late and test takers were not satisfied with the questions asked in NTS tests. Chairman HED Dr Mukhtar Ahmad has announced that now Higher Education Commission of Pakistan has decided to launch its own testing service which will not take any kind of fee from students. HEC will bear all the expenditure on this project with its own resources.
Education Testing Council (ETC) will be a autonomous institution. ETC will prepare its own bank of questions. Professors of good repute will prepare this question bank. These professors will also monitor the all stages of tests till the declaration of result. Result will be announced withing 2 hours after the commencement of test. Result will be uploaded on the official website of ETC. Test result will be remain valid for next two years only.After that students will have to reappear in the test. HEC & ETC will conduct the admission and entry tests twice in a year. Hopefully ETC will take its first test in 2017.
