LAHORE - The University of Engineering and Technology (UET) has extended the last date till September 5 (Saturday) for admission in session 2009-10 against reserved seats in the varsity for other provinces and Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) on reciprocal basis. Other professional institutions have also extended admission date ranging from Sept 5, 7 and 12. The AJK immigrants can also apply for admission to Pakistani varsities against their reserved seats. Admission forms for medical and dental colleges could be submitted by October 7, engineering and other courses by Sept 12, and for Agriculture University Faisalabad by Sept 7 to the Additional Secretary Education (Colleges) Muzaffarabad. Meanwhile, following display of last merit lists on August 31 in government colleges for graduate and postgraduate studies, and near the completion of admission process in Intermediate second shifts, the private colleges and varsities have accelerated their admission campaign for those who could not get admission. Most of these institutions either do not have any charter from the government or are affiliated with the institutions other than the Punjab University, Lahore Board and Board of Technical Education. Legally no other varsity can grant affiliation to any institution operating in its jurisdiction. The Punjab University has also drawn a list of the institutions, de-affiliated by it for not fulfilling the basis requirement. But these institutions are still admitting the students. Similarly, the Higher Education Commission (HEC) has also drawn a list of universities and colleges not recognised by it or which do not have any charter to act as varsity. However, these institutions as well whose quality of education and credibility of degree is questionable, are continuing to allure the unwary students due to lack of any administrative machinery to disband them.
