Some time ago, the National Testing Service (NTS) was declared as a scam and fraud by National Assembly’s cabinet committee after which Higher Education Commission (HEC) has now formed a regular testing service which has been approved without any objection.

After last year’s promise, the HEC has low launched Education Testing Council (ETC) that will comprise two HEC officers, two members of civil society, four VCs from public sector universities, two VCs from private sector universities and others.

The responsibility of ETC is to organize tests and exams in a transparent way while it is an independent council, according to HEC. Previously, HEC told that ETC initially will only conduct undergraduate admission while the test will be held twice in a year and it will be valid for two years. It was also claimed by the chairman HEC that all public and private universities will adopt ETC for their admissions.

The entrance tests conducted by ETC will be used for admissions in universities and also for scholarship purposes. The applicants can also attain employment in HEC and other national and international agencies through this test. Chairman HEC will head the ETC.
