UHS Conducting Medical Entrance Test Again After Eid

Lahore: The eligibility criteria for appearance in the medical entrance test which was set by Punjab government was declared illegal by a division bench of Lahore High Court (LHC) here on Monday. LHC reduced criteria from 65% to 60% marks in FSc according to the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council’s policy. The court directed the Punjab government and the University of Health Sciences (UHS) to conduct special entrance test for the students who got 60% marks or above in FSc but couldn’t appear in the entry test which was held before the announcement of FSc result.

All students who had appeared in the test held in July are eligible to apply for MBBS admission to all universities in line with regulations set by the PMDC. The court also declared illegal 60 per cent minimum passing marks set by UHS and ruled that there would be no passing percentage for the test.

The bench comprising Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed and Justice Chaudhry Shahid Saeed observed this while disposing of several identical writ petitions challenging the process of the entrance test for the MBBS. Advocates Muhammad Azhar Siddique, Mian Abdul Qaddus, Nasir Mehmood Qureshi, and Mian Qamar uz Zaman presented different petitioners.

LHC ordered the medical universities and colleges to follow the guidelines of PMDC as it is the regulatory body. UHS will conduct the special entrance test of the candidates who has secured more than 60 percent marks right after the Eid-ul-Fitar. According to UHS sources, nearly 2000 candidates would be appearing in special entrance test after Eid.

The PMDC had told the bench that the council had issued cohesive rules and regulations for the test all over the country. The Punjab government and the University of Health Sciences were obligated to abide by the rules. As per PMDC criteria, a student passing F.Sc (Per medical) exam with at least 60 per cent marks was eligible to appear in entrance test, but the Punjab government had overlooked the rules and held the entrance test before the announcement of the FSc. He pleaded that result of the entrance test should be stopped because it would not provide equal opportunities to all students throughout Pakistan. He said that, under the rules set by the Punjab government, students with 60 or 65 per cent marks would not be able to sit in the test. The counsels pleaded that the entry tests were being held prior to the announcement of the F.Sc. result, resulting in the prohibition of the petitioners to participate in the entry test.

The UHS and the chairman admission board for medical/dental institutions of Punjab, without any approval from the PMDC, had declared 65 per cent marks as the eligibility criteria in 2009. He pointed out that, in the same year, the respondents -going a step further and negating the regulations of the PMDC – had increased the passing marks from 40 to 60 per cent. Advocate Azhar Siddique requested the court to declare the criteria for the test given by the respondents without any lawful authority, in conflict of article 9,25, 37 and 38 of the constitution and violative of the instructions of the PMDC.
