UHS uploads entrance test answer key on website
Lahore, July 22: The University of Health Sciences (UHS) on Wednesday uploaded the answer key of the entrance test for admission to medical and dental colleges of Punjab on its website.
UHS Vice-Chancellor Prof Husain Mubashar Malik said the answer key had been released for the candidates, enabling them to calculate their score on the carbon copy of the response form with the help of the answer key.
“The UHS has uploaded the answer key on its website to facilitate the candidates appeared in entrance test for 2010-11 to get correct results,” Prof Malik said.
Around 32,000 candidates took the entrance test for admission to medical and dental colleges of Punjab on Tuesday.
About the A-level candidates’ claims that some questions were out of course, the UHS vice-chancellor said that release of answer key to entrance test had dispelled the impression that the examination process had flaws.
Giving reference of a decision given by the Lahore High Court on Dec 3, 2009, Prof Malik said the court had dismissed the petition filed by A-level students in which they had claimed that the entrance test for the year 2009-10 was out of course. He said the court had examined the record and statements produced in the court from both sides and finally gave decision in the favour of the UHS.
The vice-chancellor also referred to an excerpt from the verdict which said: “As regards the questions on which the objection has been raised that those are out of the course or syllabus, it may be held that the respondent-university has provided us the complete details of the relevant questions and the reference books/material from which the test has been prescribed. From such books we do not find that the grievance of the petitioners is well founded and genuine.”
