SC stops 51-year-old man to appear in exam for 31st time
ISLAMABAD—The Supreme Court on Thursday dismissed an appeal filed by a 51-year-old medical student for appearing in the examination for 31st time.

The prosecution counsel apprised the court that Tariq Javed got admission in King Edward Medical College Lahore in 1985.
He appeared in three exams for MBBS degree in 1990, 1991 and 1992. He also appeared in examination in 2011 last time. The bench upheld the decision of the Lahore High Court and dismissed the appeal.
