In China, a mother and daughter have been able to pass Medical’s postgraduate exam in the same class. The news coming out of Sichuan city from the province of Beijing shows that a 50-years old nurse named Bai Yungi had taken admission in South West Medical University and his 25-years old daughter Lulu was already studying there.
However, the daughter was unable to pass the exam in her first attempt. But the mother gave her confidence to start preparation once again and appear in the exams with more high confidence than before. Mother and daughter both were taking classes and preparing for exams collectively. Two of them used to help each other and at last, mother and daughter both passed the exams with decent marks in medical’s postgraduate exam.
The problems of educational institutes can increase according to the funds entitled by federal and provincial governments. Higher Education Commission (HEC) demanded 42 Billion rupees for education budget but only 29 Billion are awarded to the education by Federal government. Federal government says that it has increased the budget of education, however, it is a nominal increase of only 400 Million rupees. Some of the universities have registered their concern by stating that they will not be able to pay salaries as heavy amount is reliant on government’s funding.
In the last financial budget, government reduced 10% from the development budget for education, which caused a lot of trouble for the institutes. In order to fill in that gap, educational institutes raised their fees. Dr. Mumtaz, President of Punjab’s Federation of All Pakistan Academic Staff Association has said this is a very nominal increase in current budget and this is more worrisome situation for the institutes than last year. The situation is not good as this is not sufficient budget for managing educational expenses. Universities will not be able to carry out research and development activities with such budgetary concerns.
