Racket hacking medical college entry test

An alleged racket manning the medical college entry test has been making headlines.

A noted doctor told a private channel that the racket, comprising members of PMC and other criminals, has been on a money-making spree.

The doctor claimed that software has been customised to provide 'relief' to the students who greased the palm of the racketeers.

He alleged easy questions have been classified for the candidates who pay the racket to get through the exam and the talented youth have been left in the lurch.

It is alleged that a private firm, having PMC members as its shareholders, has been granted authority to hold the exam and candidates have not left with the option of going for re-checking. 

The NLE and PMC have been under for months. The managers have been accused of promoting the culture of corruption.

Last month a group of students approved court against the exams schedule. 

Reportedly, more than a dozen medical students sustained injuries when police used force to quell their demo against the NLE a week ago. 

The police used to baton-charge and pepper-spray to disperse the protesters in front of an examination centre at Barkat Market in Lahore.

The PMC made NLE passage mandatory for MBBS and BDS students, local as well as foreign qualified, for their permanent job and medical practice in Pakistan.  The move has encountered opposition from the medical fraternity.
