There are about 1.32 million available seats in the various educational institutions of the country, says UGC

The University Grants Commission (UGC) said that there will be no crisis of seats in the country's educational institutions for students pursuing higher education.

There are about 1.32 million available seats in the various educational institutions of the country, both private and public, for students of honours, degree (pass) and equivalent courses, said a UGC press release on Sunday.

UGC member Prof Muhammad Alamgir said: "There will be no scarcity of seats at different universities and affiliated colleges of the country. 

"Almost all the students, who completed their Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) and equivalent education this year, will have access to higher education. However, there will be fierce competition among the students for securing admission in their preferred institutions and subjects."

"In the 2020-2021 academic year, admission tests in 20 general and science and technology universities and six major agricultural universities will be held in a cluster system.

"Also, the final decision on the admission system for the engineering universities will be announced this week," the UGC member added.

Earlier on Saturday, the results of last year’s Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) and equivalent examinations saw a 100% pass rate, as the government published them without holding the tests because of the Covid-19 pandemic. 

A total of 1,145,329 students had registered last year and passed the HSC exams from nine general education boards, 88,302 passed Alim from the Madrasa Board, and 133,746 cleared the exams from the Technical Education Board.
