GIKI Becomes The First University to Hold Online Entry Tests in Pakistan

Ghulam Ishaq Khan Institute (GIKI) conducted an online entrance test for undergraduate programs. GIKI has become the first Pakistani university to hold online admission tests. The university is known for setting new standards of excellence and the recent online admission test is one of them.

Both domestic and international candidates appeared in the entry test from their convenient locations. The test was monitored through online human invigilation aided with multimodal data collected through customized software to prevent the use of illicit means by those who may have been testing ahead of them for jobs.

The decision was taken to allow them to focus on preparations for the exam instead of worrying about managing travel-related expenses.

Parents Worried

GIKI is one of the top engineering institutes in the country. Online entry test for 13 undergraduate disciplines was held for admission to GIKI. Candidates committed several avoidable mistakes, losing out on a chance to study at the prestigious institute.

Other Issues

Parents and students of GIKI’s first-ever online entry test have criticised the university for not taking into account monsoon rains in many parts of Pakistan. The university has not yet issued a statement on the matter, parents and students say they have brought the issue to its notice.
