HEC puts ban on private MA, MSC admissions


ISLAMABAD, Jan 21 (DNA): The Higher Education Commission (HEC) has put a
ban on private MA and MSc admissions and Punjab University (PU) has also
stopped registration for these degrees until the issue is resolved.

It merits here to mention that the registration in private MA, MSc was
started on the instructions of former Acting Vice-Chancellor of PU.
Following the former VC’s approval, the administration started the
private registration process from December 5. The deadline for private
candidates’ registration was March 15th. However, on January 6th, the
HEC issued a warning to the applicants not to get enrolled.

A university delegation will meet the HEC officials to resolve the
issue. Candidates wishing to pursue higher education while working would
be adversely affected if HEC does not facilitate or grants permission.
Furthermore, the decisions will also impact the students from lower
middle class socioeconomic status, as they will be deprived of pursuing
Higher Education. DNA
