HEC Introduces New University Admission Test

The Higher Education Commission (HEC) of Pakistan has introduced the Undergraduate Admission Test (UAT) as a new criterion for university admissions.

Following their intermediate education, students must score at least 50% on the UAT to qualify for admission. The test will cover seven categories: engineering, medical, computer science, and commerce.

The UAT is set to take place in July, with applications open on the HEC website until June 30.

The new test is being introduced to make university admissions fairer for all students. According to the HEC, it’s crucial to maintain consistent academic standards across Pakistan.

This change will ensure everyone gets a fair shot at higher education opportunities.

  • So who does not pass the new test he/she doesn’t have any further opportunities to study? HEC’S policy should encourage people to further their studies as per their aptitude and skills rather adding another hurdle.

  • Hii .. I have done my BS microbiology with 3.50 CPGA.. now I want to get any scholarship for my further studies .. this UAT is beneficial for me or not ?? If yes then what should I do .

  • It’s not a progressive step but demotivating ppl to live in Pakistan more learn some education ethics to foreign minister or commission might be possible it will shake your Murda zameer. What about ppl who just failed in exam not all ppl like our army members send there children to oxford.
    Idk why army is allowing them to do that it’s a request to let us live peacefully bhai.
    From my sight it’s a most shitty decision ever instead of making education easy they’re making it difficult.

  • There is nothing on HEC about this UAT test. If anyone has UAT test link on HEC website, please share it.
