Breaking News-Congratulations & Celebrations- Government of Punjab is Going to End MCAT & ECAT Entrance Tests
Examination and admission reform committee Punjab has recommended to end MCAT and ECAT tests. Committee has sent its recommendation to Chief Minister Punjab, who will take final decision in this regard. Chief Minister will take the final decision soon after consultation with public at large. Committee has presented its recommendations to provide level playing field to all students for taking admission in medical colleges and engineering universities.
Entry test were introduced 20 years before when cheating mafia was ruling in all boards of Punjab and there was a big question mark about the performance of different boards of intermediate and secondary education, but now Punjab government has introduced lot of reforms in examination system. Cheating mafia has been eliminated. Now answers sheets are send to other board with secret roll numbers for checking. Papers of all boards are being selected from a same pool of examination questions to ensure equal standard of papers. Government is also discouraging memorization by introducing most modern syllabus.
Parents have to pay heavy fees for MCAT and ECAT entry tests preparation classes. Entry test preparation academies have become an other mafia, which were looting the students. In 2011 UET ECAT paper was out and in 2014 daily express published a news about UHS MCAT paper out scandal. Even in 2011 UET Lahore ECAT paper was cancelled. Entry test preparation academies mafia was behind it. They were earning billion of rupees for providing guess papers. Many students committed suicide due to these tests. In short students and their parents were suffering a lot due to these so called entrance tests.
We have written many times against this whole concept of entry tests and mafia of private academies. We pay our tribute to examination and admission reform committee Punjab for presenting such bold and students friendly recommendations. Thanks to Almighty Allah who gave us an opportunity to fight for students rights and in a small period of time government listened to our voice for the rights of students. We congratulate all the students of Punjab. At the same time we recommend more reforms in examination system for making it fool proof and uniform. Entry test from all universities including ETEA and NTS entry tests must also be abolished. Other provinces should also follow Punjab government’s decision. It is expected that from next year no more entry tests will be taken for admission in medical colleges and engineering universities.
