Lahore (August 2, 2019): During a joint press conference with Minister for Higher Education Punjab Raja Yasir Humayun at Arfa Karim Technology Park, Chairman HEC Dr. Tariq Banuri stated that, HEC has decided to phase out two year degree, BA/BSc degree would be terminated to Associate Degree Program and new admissions will be granted to this degree only, anyhow all the colleges will remain affiliated and there will also be no effect on the students.

Only the nomenclature has been changed now, further changes related to ADP will be made next year. Exams will be held under annual system but students will be graded according to semester system and only the common things between BA/BSc and ADP will be focused this year, said Raja Yasir Humayun.

Chairman HEC claimed that notification for ADP was issued in 2017 and till now no case has been filed against it. Talking about budget cuts, he said that universities’ budget will be cut up to 10 percent. HEC will start capacity building of colleges with time to time according to the requirements of ADP. It only focuses quality of education. It does interfere in management matters of colleges and universities, said the chairman.

Benazir Income Support Program (BISP) will award scholarships of 5 billion to HEC for undergraduate students while PEEF would also contribute to award scholarships for Higher Education.

Answering a question to The Educationist, Dr. Tariq said that HEC would devise new curriculum which would be common for Madrassah and university students.
