Every year, thousands of students appear in examination for B.A/B.sc or M.A/M.sc through University of The Punjab. Each student has to fill up a registration form that has many fields to fill including father’s details. Most of them have asterisk (*) that means they are mandatory or compulsory to fill and without them, registration may not be accepted. But there are some fields on the form that are not compulsory to fill. If those fields are left empty because of lack of details then form should still be accepted.
Well, this is what we may think but in reality, no field should be empty or the form will not be accepted.
How many students have been scammed for additional 200 Rupees and how many could not appear in examination because of lack of knowledge and experience of University’s staff, we may never know but what we know is that it is time for our education departments to get their facts right and not ruin students’ lives by misleading them. Do they know what they are doing? That is the question they should ask themselves. It may also be a good news for those poor students who have not been accepted for registration for not knowing their Father’s CNIC and let us be honest there are thousands who really don’t know it and our education department’s staff should take this in consideration and STOP PLAYING WITH OUR STUDENTS FUTURE.
