Around 42000 candidates are appearing in the University of Health Sciences (UHS) entrance test which is being held on Sunday September 22, 2013 for admission to public and private sector medical and dental institutions of the Punjab.
Punjab government gives high priority to merit and transparency. It is evident from the fact that Chief Minister Punjab has deputed 16 provincial secretaries, all divisional commissioners, DCOs and senior bureaucrats to monitor the whole process and make all out efforts to ensure merit.
UHS has established 20 test centers in 12 cities of the province including Lahore, Faisalabad, Sahiwal, Multan, Bahawalpur, Rahim Yar Khan, Sargodha, Rawalpindi, Hassan Abdal, Gujrat, Gujranwala and D.G. Khan.
The test will start at 09:00 a.m. The candidates, however, must reach their respective centers at least one hour before the commencement of the test as all the centers would be sealed at 08:15 a. m. and nobody would be allowed to enter after that.
In Lahore, four centers have been set up which include Examination Halls of Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education, Lawrence Road; Examination Halls of Punjab University, Wahdat Road; Government Comprehensive Girls High School, Wahdat Road; and, Government Pilot High School, Wahdat Road.
Around 12000 candidates (3800 male and 8200 female) shall sit the test in the metropolis.
Punjab government has made immaculate arrangements for smooth conduct of the entrance test. The district administration, under the supervision of concerned divisional commissioners and district coordination officers, has finalized the security and logistic plans at their respective centers where the test is scheduled to be held.
According to the regulations of Pakistan Medical and Dental Council, it is mandatory for a candidate to appear in the provincial entrance test conducted by UHS for admission to any public or private medical / dental college of the Punjab.
