LAHORE, July 22: A division bench of the Lahore High Court (LHC) on Thursday associated the result of entrance tests for MBBS and BDS to the court’s final decision on petitions filed by Nazifa Fatima, a student of F.Sc medical, challenging the test process.

Earlier, Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC) registrar Dr Ahmad Nadeem informed the court that the council had announced a uniform policy and rules for entrance test across the country.

The registrar, who was accompanied by his counsel, Dr Abdul Basit, said the Punjab government and the University Health Sciences (UHS) were bound to follow the councils’ policy, but the provincial government was interfering in council’s affairs with regard to conduct of entrance test.

He said according to the criteria set by the PMDC, a student, who had passed F.Sc (pre medical) exam and obtained 60 per cent marks, was qualified to take entrance test. But, the Punjab government, violating these rules, held entrance test before the announcement of F.Sc results. Whereas, he said, under the rules issued by Punjab government, only those students, who would get 60 or 65 per cent marks, were eligible to appear in entry test.

The registrar requested the court to hold back the result of entrance test because it would not provide equal opportunities to all students throughout Pakistan.

The bench consisting of Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed and Justice Farrukh Irfan Khan, however, associated the result with court’s final judgment on the petitions and adjourned hearing till Aug 19.

Petitioner Nazifa Fatima, a student of F.Sc (pre-medical), through Counsel Muhammad Azhar Siddique, said the entrance test was being conducted prior to the announcement of F.Sc result which resulted in her ineligibility to take the test.

She said the conduct of entry test in such a manner was violation of fundamental rights guaranteed under the Constitution and also in violation of the obligatory instructions issued by the PMDC.

She said all other provinces were having eligibility criteria of 60% marks in F.Sc. and passing mark of 50% in the entrance test. But, the UHS and the chairman admission board for medical/dental institutions of Punjab without any approval from the PMDC adopted a 60 per cent marks eligibility criteria in 2009.

She and other petitioners pleaded that the respondents be directed to act strictly in accordance with law and follow the criteria for holding the entrance test laid down by the PMDC and instructions be issued for holding entry test after the announcement of FSc results.

On last hearing, the bench had turned down the petitioners’ plea to stay holding of test and allowed the university to proceed according to the prescribed schedule.
