KU ad­mis­sion pro­ce­dure

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - UMM-E-HANI

Tens of thou­sands of stu­dents be­came vic­tims of the ad­mis­sion pro­ce­dure an­nu­ally in Univer­sity of Karachi. While filling the ad­mis­sion forms one has to give four op­tions with re­spect to their pri­or­i­ties. But, they are given the de­part­ments on the ba­sis of their per­cent­age. Con­se­quently, ma­jor­ity of can­di­dates are given pro­grammes that they are least in­ter­ested in. For in­stance, in my IR class most of the can­di­dates de­sired for other de­part­ments like, psy­chol­ogy, law, so­ci­ol­ogy etc. And I am sure that same is sce­nario in all the de­part­ments of univer­sity.

Karachi Univer­sity is one of the pres­ti­gious var­si­ties in Pak­istan, which is the only hope for the stu­dents of lower or mid­dle class to ful­fil their dreams of higher ed­u­ca­tion. But, this ad­mis­sion pro­ce­dure is badly killing their de­sires. I on the be­half of many other stu­dents re­quest the Vice Chan­cel­lor to re­visit and re­form the ad­mis­sion pro­ce­dure.
