NTS GAT Not Mandatory For MPhil & PhD, LHC Orders

Category: Education

Graduate Assessment Test (GAT) conduct by National Testing Service (NTS) for the admission in MPhil and Ph.D. There is good news for the those students who appear for GAT tests by NTS, that they can pas GAT tests for M.Phil and Ph.D admissions in any university in Pakistan. Earlier, every student who wants to have admission in M.Phil and Ph.D, first had to pass the GAT conducted by NTS, but now student have to pass the entry test of the university and there is no involvement of NTS is required anymore. This is a very great relief for all students that they are far from GAT tests. According the details given to the HEC by the Lahore High Court dated 11th October, 2014 and 25th October, 2013 in pursuance of written petition No. 28028/2011 entitled, ‘Miss. Syeda Anam Ilyas VS Dr. Haroon Rashid’ that HEC issue notice to all universities about the relief announced by Lahore High Court for the students about the admission of M.Phil and Ph.D and also asked many questions about this announcement that they suggest about the testing body, nature of and scope of the test or this relief can regulate like the announcement under the ordinance?
HEC issued notices to all the Vice Chancellors, Rectors and heads of the degree awarding institutions to submit their suggestion in written before 13th December, 2013 date for the next hearing. 16 representatives of various big universities submit their suggestions in written based on this that “It is therefore, clarified that universities and other educational institutions are not bound to subscribe to the entrance examinations / test conducted by NTS. It is also an admitted position that NTS has not been approved by HEC to act as a Testing Body under the Ordinance”.

The students and number of teachers admired the decision of LHC about giving the authority of entry test to all universities for the admission of M.Phil and Ph.D. As, now NTS is out for the admission of M.Phil and Ph.D, so now universities have to set their own standards for new admissions and this bring us a latest trends by the LHC.

    what you people think that if NTS will not conduct test there will be no test?????
    indeed there will still be a test. conducted by each university itself and they will certainly charge fee for the test apart from admission processing fee. in fact there is no relief for the students, it is just like the key of vault is now in more than one hand. The universities now will be earning that’s it
    And what about those students who gave GAT test and now their fees and efforts will be a waste. Now they will have to submit new fee and will have to prepare for the test for every university. If unfortunately he fails to get merit he will have to submit new fee in another university and so on. system in this country is a mess. there are no intellectuals in this country no policy makers people here just know how to cram and get degrees. even PhD scholars are dumb, no offence
    I myself appeared in GAT scored 88, but BZU doesn’t accept Gat. They require new test fee is 1000 and admission processing fee is 800. now you guys decide for yourself.
    similarly there should be no MCAT, No ECAT
    whole world is fool they conduct MCAT and ECAT and GRE for admissions?????????
    grow up people just grow up
