Paramedical students from all districts of Rawalpindi division have expressed concern over Punjab Medical Faculty’s decision to shift their examination centre from Rawalpindi to Lahore.
The students from Tehsil Jand, Pindi Ghab, Fateh Jang and Attock say they will have to bear substantially higher fares to reach the new exam centre in Lahore.
DHQ Attock Medical School’s paramedical students, who have received their roll number slips, say it will be difficult to travel so far in the summers to sit for their exam. The students have urged the Punjab Chief Minister Mian Shahbaz Sharif find a solution and take notice of the abrupt decision by the medical faculty.
