National Testing Service (NTS); our own very GMAT

As admissions open up, I’ve come across several requests from wannabe students of my Institute at University of the Punjab to guide them with NTS (National Testing Service) every time I visit my department. It’s rather a new testing system being implemented by Punjab University in all of its departments & institutes.

Punjab University has made entry tests compulsory for admissions to all undergraduate and graduate programmes from the academic session 2006-2007. And to implement it, the University has enlisted the services of Higher Education Comission (HEC)’s latest programme; National Testing Service (NTS).

NTS will conduct standard tests for all programmes offered by the University. However, a candidate will have to give separate specific tests if he/she’s applying for different programmes.

While Punjab University’s already onboard, we’ll soon see a lot of other Universities and educational institutions enlisting to this testing service, which may, one day, become a ‘standard’ test just like the GMAT or GRE…

    I think it’s already in place; many other universities are also using it.
