Ghulam Ishaq Khan Institute held an online entry test for undergraduate programs. This is the first time any institution conducts online entrance tests. The latest online admission test one of GIKI’s many efforts to create new benchmarks for excellence, according to the university’s official statement. It freed the students from having to worry about budgeting for travel costs incurred because of the on-campus entry test, allowing them to concentrate more on their preparation.
Dr. Ghulam Abbas, Associate Professor at GIKI’s Faculty of Computer Science and Engineering (FCSE), was also praised by GIKI’s Rector, Prof. Dr. Fazal Ahmed Khalid, for continually bringing innovation to GIKI’s operations.
On the other side, the online entry test that was administered for admission to 13 undergraduate disciplines at GIKI has drawn strong criticism from both students and their parents.
They have stated that the university failed to clarify the test requirements clearly. As a result, the applicants made a number of mistakes that could have easily been avoided, losing the opportunity to attend one of the best engineering schools in the nation.
One father said that his son neglected to properly read the directions and failed to connect an external camera to his device. His youngster will not be regarded eligible for admission to GIKI due to an entirely avoidable error.
According to one student, the recent monsoon rains have caused numerous problems, including energy load-shedding and internet disorders in many regions of the nation, including South Punjab, Sindh, and Baluchistan.

Parents and students complained that GIKI’s administration failed to take these concerns into account when planning the nation’s first-ever online entry test, adding that they had brought the issue to GIKI’s attention. The institution hasn’t yet made a remark about this, though.
