SMIU’s entry test held
KARACHI: Sindh Madressatul Islam University (SMIU) conducted an entry test for admissions in under graduate, graduate and PhD programs for fall 2018 in two shifts in a local hotel on Saturday.
About eighteen hundred students had applied for admission on available three hundred seats in different departments, Department of Business Administration, Commerce and Management Science, Computer Science, Media and Communication Studies, Environment Science and Education.
The candidates had come from all parts of Sindh, because SMIU offers admissions on open merit basis. About eighteen hundred students had applied for the admission on about three hundred seats.
Dr Mohammad Ali Shaikh, Vice Chancellor of SMIU visited the venue and observed the process of the test. On that occasion he while talking to the deans, chairpersons and faculty of various departments and senior management of the university, said that this year SMIU received the applications from candidates for admissions six times more than the previous admission.
He said that since 2012, when this great institute had received university status, the SMIU charges only fifteen hundred rupees for admission form and prospectus, but in lieu it provides a most conducive place and environment for entry test while other universities fail to provide such environment.
Dr Mohammad Ali Shaikh said that SMIU has become a great seat of modern education, this is why a large number of students want to get admission at this historic institution, which is an Alma Mater of founder of Pakistan Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah. “We also want to give admissions to all the willing students but due to lack of financial resources and space, at this stage we only offer admission on a limited number of seats,” the Vice Chancellor said. He said that SMIU provides modern and quality education to its students with the support of highly qualified faculty and modern facilities.
