Poor management of National University of Medical Sciences (NUMS) for this year’s admission test has infuriated aspiring candidates who have launched a protest against the varsity.
Social media platforms, especially Twitter, is rife with the posts bashing NUMS for poor management of the entry test.
Candidates were found complaining about the use of cheap quality paper, third-class printing, poor test timing, and pathetic management. The wrong test key has further brought students on their heels.
Students are demanding a re-conduct of the entry test, claiming that the key uploaded by the National Testing Service (NTS) was wrong.
Here are a few examples:
So the NUMS paper today was pathetic. The paper used is already so cheap we all know but hello how are we supposed to recognize the diagrams with this much cheap ink and paper? So many Out of syllabus questions. Physics ke 19 chapters chor ke sary 40mcqs akhri 2 mai se pochy.

NUMS just updated their key for the 3rd time in a single day and UHS MDCAT result showed 5741 students securing 90% and above. Ofc It means merit will touch around 91 this year and it's climbing each year. I thinks it's not the students who are doing extravagant hardwork but…

The nums mdcat was not only out of syllabus but the sentence structure of most of the questions was so incorrect making it difficult to comprehend what the examiner was really asking for

The testing service made some pointless blunders while issuing test slips to the students. Here is a video showing how male candidates’ sheet had female candidates’ pictures on them.
Reportedly, the testing service has uploaded four different keys to the test paper so far, all of them failing to match. Feeling the heat of the protest, NTS has now issued a new schedule for redressal of the students’ concerns.
NTS has deputed a team of Subject Matter Experts for the redressal of issues/queries raised by the candidates… We regret any inconvenience caused to the candidates and their families.
It has issued the following schedule according to which provisional result will be announced on 8th September; queries will be accepted till 12th September while the final result will be announced the next morning on 13th.
