Pakistan Observer - - NATIONAL -

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 court re­marked that Pak­istan Med­i­cal & Den­tal Coun­cil rules al­lowed only five at­tempts for reap­pear­ing in the ex­am­i­na­tions while the pe­ti­tioner failed to pass a sub­ject even in a pe­riod of ten years.

A three-mem­ber bench of the apex court headed by Jus­tice Mian Saqib Nisar heard an ap­peal filed by a med­i­cal stu­dent Tariq Javed of King Ed­ward Med­i­cal Col­lege against the La­hore High Court’s or­der. 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.
