Ongoing pandemic (COVID19) and opening of schools in Pakistan

Observing the difficulty this COVID has imposed upon us, and the impact it has given to many countries around the globe. It can be seen that all these countries are at different levels to understand the situation and to reopen the schools.

In Pakistan, the Federal minister has announced September 15th as the tentative date to reopen the schools in Pakistan. Two provinces Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa have considered this and have decided to stay firm with the decision. Although it is very difficult to handle such a situation where the lives of many including students, teachers and other people involved are at risk.

Since, this pandemic is not predicted to end soon, it is bringing in all the thoughts regarding how to bring in the students in classrooms with all the safety possible. Before opening all the institutions, it is very important that our policy makers take all the precautionary actions involved into consideration. An important consideration is that this fatal infection spreads more in the age group between 3 to 16 around the globe.

We also have to think that students might infect teachers as well at the end of the day. At the same time, we cannot ignore what has happened with the countries who decided to open schools during this pandemic and what were the results and precautions they took to make the environment safe for all the students in this pandemic.

Being realistic here scientists and doctors around the globe are working really hard to figure out as to when this pandemic will end or what is going to be the cure for this. However, there are a few studies that can be found helpful in order to understand the upcoming impact of this pandemic over children.

In a nutshell, it is important to understand that a country like Pakistan, which is not sufficient in its health-related resources, would not be able to digest another spill of this pandemic. As most of our people lie below the literacy rate and cannot afford to have treatments. It is advised that the government should take all the possible actions to make sure every school follows SOPs strictly.

How should I choose between the Medical and Engineering Field?

#The confusion of medicine and engineering
# what to choose between medicine and engineering
# what is a better career choice?  Medicine or Engineering.

Medical Vs Engineering has always been a confusion when students are looking forward to choosing their career paths. Unfortunately, in Pakistan there are very limited options for students in public sector universities but the private sector is filled with multiple options. Thanks to the immense opportunities in both the field to which students get attracted and pursue their careers. According to a wise man, it is better for a man to listen to his or her inner voice at first before making any decision.

In Pakistan this decision is solely dependent on the Students ability to score in grade 10th (matriculation and O level Examination). This is solely the decision which can make or break a student’s dream. After scoring well in these examination students come to the point where they evaluate the pros and cons of both the fields. Evaluating job opportunities is also one important factor that all the students and their parents would like to give a thought to. Also, in Pakistan most of the families are biased in between choosing engineering and medical. Is one family having more people with Engineering Degrees they would like all others to follow the same path and vice versa.

In this fight between Engineering and Medical, It is observed that Engineering has been a popular choice in the countries abroad, as there are more engineering universities than medical ones.

This is not as easy as one two three to decide what to choose. Because the fields require completely different abilities let say, Engineering is more of understanding the phenomenon, being analytical, high intelligent quotient and many others. It requires students to be creative and innovative enough to drive something unique out of it.

Engineering is a popular choice may be because, after completing a Four-year program, students can get a job against a reasonable pay cheque. But for medicine it takes quite a long time as 6 to 8 years for completion of degree and specialization. Now after all this student starts to earn in this field.



What is NET? Why is NET important? What is the meaning of your NET result?

To all the students who have imagined themselves as successful graduates of NUST are well aware of this NET test. Which is essentially required to get admission in NUST. In this blog, we will discuss why NET is important, what score you should bag to get in.

NET stands for National Eligible Test, which is conducted at three locations, that is Islamabad (NUST Campus), Karachi and Quetta. At Islamabad the Test is conducted in computer-based format. In Karachi and Quetta, it is in paper-based format conducted in April & July.

First of all, you are allowed to appear in NET once you are done submitting your application. The tests results are out usually 10 days after the test happens. The test score is out of 200 marks, and comprises 200 MCQs. Let’s say if you attempt 100 MCQs and all of them are correct, you will end up scoring 100 marks. But regardless to mention, the 100 marks score is very low.

Score for Admission in Engineering:
A score above 110 is considered safe and you may get admission in some of the lower ranked courses. For Engineering, a score of 125 above is safe. Higher merit courses like Electrical and Mechanical Engineering require a safe score of 140 plus.

Score for Admission in Medical and Applied Bio Sciences:
For both Medical and Applied Bio Sciences a higher score is required, one should score 170 above to get into one of the degrees. The score of above or equal the 140 is acceptable for Applied Bio Sciences.

Score for Architect and Business Studies:
For Architect and Business Studies 130 is considered a safe score. The score for merit is decided once all the tests take place. The pattern of merit is almost the same every year. Which depends upon your rank out of the total students appeared for the test.

What you should know about admissions in Medical Colleges (MDCAT)

Being a doctor and assisting other people in an incredibly significant way is a dream of Pakistan’s many passionate students. But it is an aim in life that cannot be achieved without too much hard work and dedication.  It is important that one should keep in mind that hard work is not the only thing which is important, one should be smart enough to choose the better and most effective option for test preparation. As it is the most fundamental part of the admission process. This blog contains relevant information regarding admissions in Medicine in Pakistan:

National University of Medical Sciences (NUMS):
NUMS entrance tests take place every year in the month of September and the applications start in the last week of August. Students can get admissions at NUMS once they clear the entrance test which comprises four major sections Physics, English, Biology and Chemistry, all based on multiple choice questions. One can also get admission to affiliated institutes such as CMH Lahore, Army Medical College and Karachi Institute of Medical Sciences.

Medical College Admission Test (MDCAT):
This test takes place every year in the month of August and is conducted by the University of Health Sciences every year in August. It takes place every year on behalf of the Punjab government. This test is mandatory for many private and public medical institution admissions. The students are tested upon their ability to answer multiple choice questions based on their knowledge related to various subjects including Biology, Chemistry, English language and Mathematics. One is eligible to get into either of the institutes including King Edward Medical College, Fatima Jinnah medical College etc.

The Army Medical College (AMC):
The entrance tests for Army Medical College usually take place in July. Students have the option to either appear for the AMC test or NUMS test to get admission. Equal or above 75 percent score in FSC allows a student to sit for this examination. Lower than this percentage the students are not allowed to sit for this test. The test comprises Verbal, Nonverbal intelligence, Physics, Biology and Chemistry.

National Aptitude test (NAT):
This test is also very important for all the young and passionate students who are looking forward to providing their services as a doctor in future. The students who clear NAT are also eligible to appear for NTS affiliated medical colleges. NAT can be attempted multiple times as it takes place almost every month.

It is right to say that students are not only tested on their ability to solve a mathematics or a physics related multiple choice question rather, their passion and dedication towards achieving their goal. It is also very important that students must choose wiser options and take smarter decisions when it comes to preparing for their entry tests. Don’t forget that time is the key. Here are a few guidelines as to how one can prepare better in less time for your MDCAT:

It is important to have a full master plan before you begin with anything that is this demanding as MBBS. It is always okay to deviate and change your path but you should always have one particular path to follow and achieve your goal. In MDCAT, this can only be done when you have proper course material, sample papers, mock tests, past papers etc. Secondly you need to make sure that you are using some great time management skills while you prepare. So, preparing for MDCAT is a mix of your in-depth understanding and time management skills.

Online preparation is also one of the key options for students nowadays, it is a blessing in disguise. In which you can access the entire data 24/7 in touch of your mobile phone screens. That is also at such less price. has made life easier for almost 5000 students up till now and still heavily contributing for their students.
