The Karachi University has issued the BA BSc program alert. The university has informed the students to not take admission in unauthorized degree programs such as BA, BSC, and B.Com. These degree programs have already been phased out because of the quality concerns by the Higher Education Department as per the International Education Standards.

Unauthorized Degree Programs

According to the new policy and directives issued by the Higher Education Department, these discarded degrees will not allow the students to apply for jobs or further education. In case the candidates get enrolled in these authorized degree programs then they will waste their time as it will be of no use and HEC will not consider their degrees in any case. Moreover, the candidates are informed that an associate degree is not equivalent to the BA/BSc/B.com (16 years education) but AD is equivalent to the 14 years of schooling, entitles candidates can get admission in the 5th semester of the respective BS degree programs after fulfilling the compulsory admission criteria announced by the University. 

Announcement By HEC

Earlier the Higher Education Department had also warned the students to not take admission in the BA/BSc unauthorized degree programs. The decision regarding the abolishment of the unauthorized degree programs was taken in 2022 but HEC had permitted the universities to allow admission in a transition period. Later on, the Associate Degree (AD) was announced so that the candidates that intend to get enrolled in a BA/BSC degree can get admission in its alternative. The transition period was ended in 2016 and the final decision was made to stop the admissions in the BA/BSC programs on 31st December 2018 and. It was also decided that the last BA/BSc exam will be held in 2020 and these decisions were confirmed in 2017, and again in 2019 and 2020. But due to the situation of the coronavirus flexibility was provided to the universities that they can conclude the final exam of BA and BSc before 31st March 2021.
