RAWALPINDI, Aug 7: Entry test for public and private medical and dental colleges in Punjab will be held on September 13 in Rawalpindi and 11 other cities of the province, said Vice-Chancellor University of Health Sciences (UHS) Lahore, Prof Dr Mubashar Hussain Malik.
He was speaking at an orientation seminar for candidates at Rawalpindi Medical College (RMC).
The vice-chancellor said the candidates would submit the application forms for entry tests from August 20 to September 7.
Candidates filing their applications in Rawalpindi can submit the completed forms by hand in the UHS Regional Office in RMC. According to rules prepared for entry tests, applications cannot be filed through post.
Prof Malik has advised the candidates against preparing for the tests at private academies and warned them against using unfair means during examination.
“Neither UHS nor any medical/dental institution of the Punjab recommend or endorse any preparatory courses offered by various academies and tuition centres,” he said.
The vice-chancellor said the candidates would be tested through a ‘foolproof’ self scoring system. They would answer questions on a double-sheeted, pre-printed, bar-coded response form, he said.
