Is NUST Getting Down Day By Day?

Pakistan is becoming more and more education deficient country as the day passes. This is because the trust which students had in institution is being lost day by day. There are many factors adding to it like the violation trend on a drastic rise. Two days before, a student of Riphah University gunned down his vice principal etc. The entry tests of UET and NUST (two most prestigious engineering universities of Pakistan and ranked top in Pakistan ) were leaked out.

There are many factors adding to it but me being a NUST student would confine myself to the factors which are taking the ranking of university low day by day. These factors are explained below:

  1. The entry test trivia which left every student of NUST and all the candidates who had some dreams to have a chance of study in one of the best engineering institutions of Pakistan, shocked. The retest has been arranged and taken successfully but the trust and chance has been lost. Guys have taken admissions in other universities so they are hesitating to join NUST so late. 
  2. When I talk about my time, I see the merit positions till 1000 getting admission. But now it ranges to 3000. This is good in a sense that more and more students get a chance to be here at NUST. But it adds to lowering the standards. In order to cope up with it, the faculty and NUST administration has to work much hard. 
  3. NUST has to revise its fee policy. It is because when we compare it with UET and other national universities, we find it much expensive. Although there are few scholarships program but that is not enough as far as the student demand is concerned. 
 These are a few lines which I feel NUST has to think on. Otherwise when it comes to bipolar society like elite and poor classes in Pakistan, NUST is confining it self to just one pole. But the talent exists at both poles. Good luck NUST and Allah bless Pakistan.


  1. Behzad bhai all the points mentioned obove looks like to to prove NUST not a leading institute there are pons and cons in every uni of Pakistan and uet test aloso leaked out but you are just prefereing uet these are your personal thinkings not are facts and according to QS world ranking NUST jumped from 274 to 250 what are your comment about that............ Stop thinking negatively

  2. Behzad, you said that the best unis in Pakistan were GIKI & UET, but when it comes to the fee expenses, you start comparing UET & NUST & you ignore GIKI completely...I do hope you know that the fee expenses of GIKI are more than six times those of NUST...
    & to answer your argument about the number of students accepted at NUST, you must remember that the H-12 campus of NUST was built in 2008 & before that HQ NUST was in Rawalpindi...use some common sense the capacity of students at NUST must have incresed with the building of the H-12 campus.
