HEC Warns Students To Take Admission In Two Year Degree Programs
“It is to inform you that HEC has not allowed any extension in timelines for admission in the two year BA/BSc and two-year MA/MSc degree programs,” the student alert stated.
The Higher Education Commission (HEC) has issued a warning to students and parents about enrolling in the two year BA/BSc and two-year MA/MSc degree programs.
The higher education regulatory body has issued a Student Alert following the dissemination of a number of false messages, information, and news on websites, in the media, and on social media claiming that HEC has extended admissions in two-year degree programs.
“It is to inform you that HEC has not allowed any extension in timelines for admission in the two year BA/BSc and two-year MA/MSc degree programs,” the student alert stated. It is important to note that the alert was shared on all of HEC’s official social media pages, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and the website.
It’s important for educational institutions and regulatory bodies to be clear and transparent when communicating with students and to quickly address any false or misleading information that may be circulating. The dissemination of false information can cause confusion and concern among students and ultimately harm their academic progress.
According to the commission, the last dates for enrollment in the BA/BSc and MA/MSc programmes were December 31, 2019 and June 30, 2022, respectively. According to the HEC’s tweet, students and parents should “beware of such misleading and fake information” circulated on social media.
The commission advised visiting HEC’s official website for all up-to-date information on the matter. The HEC did not postpone the four-year BS and two-year associate degree programmes until July 2021, after several affiliated colleges across Pakistan had already begun them.
HEC stated that, at the request of the Vice Chancellors’ Committee, the implementation of the Undergraduate Education Policy 2020—which includes the four-year BS and two-year associate degree programs—has been delayed at some universities until the fall of 2022.
Universities that have already adopted the education policy, on the other hand, can continue to implement it.
