The Higher Education Commission said Sunday that the HEC Undergraduate Studies Admission Test would be held in the coming month (HEC USAT). This test determines student eligibility for undergraduate admission to Pakistani universities.
HEC did not say that USAT is mandatory for taking admission to universities. Meanwhile, The advertising came when several institutions had already published entry exam dates and opened undergraduate applications. In addition, many colleges do not require a general BS admission exam.
The HEC also announced on social media. Sadly, pupils did not welcome the news. Others termed USAT a money-making scheme.
According to the HEC advertising, the Education Testing Council (ETC) will administer the Undergraduate Studies Admission Test. This test is for university undergraduate entrance in Pakistan. The online registration deadline was August 30, and the entrance test was tentatively scheduled for September 12, 2021
