Lahore – A new initiative has been taken by the University of Health and Science to save educational sector costs. UHS has reduced answer book pages to half for the upcoming MBBS and BDS examinations. The new initiative is set to save upto Rs 20 million per year.
This decision will ensure that students concise and to the point answers and the exams will get more competitive. The questions will be Short Essay Questions (SEQs) and the students will be compelled to write more efficiently.
Previously, the answer book consisted of 16 pages where students were asked to write 4 questions. On average the students took 5 to 6 pages for their exam and the rest of the pages were wasted. Afterwards, the UHS has now halved the pages and a total of 8 pages will be provided instead of the previous 16.
Professor Ahsan Waheed Rathore announced that this new initiative is going to save almost Rs 20 million.
The most crucial aspect of this initiative is to ensure that the students inculcate the answers properly to provide concise and relevant answers and keywords instead of comprehensive answers.
