Banned institute graduates get chance for degrees verification.

LAHORE -- The Higher Education Commission (HEC), Pakistan, has devised a mechanism to give an opportunity to the graduates of unrecognised colleges of the Global Institute, Lahore, for recognition of their degrees.

The HEC, through the Education Testing Council (ETC), will conduct the Special Graduate Assessment Test (SGAT) for the students.

It is also exploring the possibility of holding tests for the overseas students of Global Institute in the designated regions viz Dubai, United Arab Emirates and Riyadh in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, subject to receipt of a considerable number of applications - minimum 100 students from a city.

According to details, the Global Institute, Lahore, was a recognised chartered institution in the private sector established vide Punjab Act II of 2011.
