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.

How to Ace University Aptitude Tests?

Firstly, let us explain why scoring more in your aptitude test is really important. Getting good grades in college is important but not sufficient. Each university has a specific selection standard that includes tests, interviews and other activities like group discussions. When deciding your place in the merit list, your marks in the aptitude test are given more weight than your grades in college. Hence, your marks in the aptitude test of the university where you want to pursue higher education will ultimately be the deciding factor whether you will be able to get admission in the university of your dreams or not. The aptitude test is your biggest hurdle you need to pass to get into the university of your dreams.Now that it has been explained how important it is to get as much high marks in the aptitude test as possible, here are some tips & tricks that will help you in the upcoming aptitude tests.

An Early Start is a Rule of Thumb!  

A simple trick which is overlooked is to start preparing for the aptitude tests simultaneously while preparing for preliminary/mock and board exams. It is such a simple trick which can pay you great dividends. By doing this, you will have a whole year to learn and prepare for your entrance test. 

Rote Learning Will Not Help You!

Entry tests are all about how well you understand the key concepts of major topics. You can do everything right in your board exams but it will certainly not work when it comes to aptitude test. Try to read each line of the book with concentration. Try to understand the concept yourself and if it does not work, get help from YouTube and your teacher. Finally, intermediate/A-level marks do not matter for the aptitude test, concepts do. Thus, do expect questions which test your concepts.

You Cannot Get Away By Avoiding English & Mathematics!

Almost all the universities have sections of the aptitude test designated to test the student’s command over English and Mathematics. So, the earlier you start practicing the two, the better will be your chances to score well in the test. A tip here is to prepare from other resource books like SAT and GRE books. Many universities’ question papers have questions which are based on the format of these books.

The Human Brain Has Invented Calculator, Not Otherwise. Get It Straight!

Try to limit the use of calculator for small calculations or stop using the calculator completely during your preparation for the aptitude test. It is because using calculator is inefficient and requires much more time for calculations which actually does not require the use of a calculator.  Try to do basic calculations either in your mind or manually. Try to practice self-calculation which will also help you in managing your time.

Practice From Sample Papers!

We all know that practice makes a person perfect. Sample papers from different universities give a brief idea of ​​what kind of questions to expect in the test. You will find out about the time frame and complexity of MCQ. Knowing the type of questions, you will face in the actual test will be very helpful for you to come up with a strategy to solve such questions.

Consistency Is The Key!

Your main goal is to pass your aptitude test and get into the university of your dreams. Make up your mind and try to remind yourself of your purpose whenever you do not feel like studying. You’ve been working hard for 2 years and only need to last a month or so. You must not let yourself get upset and let all your hard work go in vain! Just focus on your education, avoid social media and mobile phones for a few months. Work hard and celebrate your success after getting excellent marks in the test!
