  1. It’s too hard for students to adjust time for Fsc and ECAT preparation. Not any good criteria in Pakistan for students to admission in University. Majority of Advanced and Pro students not to pass in ECAT and Nust net test and something other test like this, then they lose heart and leave the study and their careers. So I appealed to Government of Pakistan To give more opportunities to students for progress of Pakistan
