On 18th July, Karachi University conducted entrance tests for M.Phil and PhD applicants. However, the administration of Karachi University (KU) has rendered the transparency of the M.Phil and Ph.D. entrance tests questionable by printing the correct answers on the test papers. The Karachi University conducts entrance tests in various departments. Moreover, the test based on MCQs and the correct answers highlight in bold text.
KU reportedly computerized the test process using the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) System. After this tragedy, one of the students said that the administration is continuing old policies under new titles. He told the media how the university justifies its increase in fees by claiming to provide the best facilities but its administration has failed to provide even necessary facilities. He demanded that the best facilities provide to the students in return for the heavy fees that they pay. He also claimed that last year’s admissions of the M.Phil and Ph.D. students made on the basis of favoritism.
