  • How can I pay to get my Burger Business ranked as Top University of Pakistan..?
    Reality is – only some Universities like LUMS, NUST, GIKI, UET, PU, PUCIT, ITU, LSE, Namal – qualify to be ranked.
    Rest of the Universities ranked in the list have shoddy educational system running within. These sub-standard Universities are producing biscuits, somehow. Universities are cash-rich, if these are traded on PSX, black goes white.
