Islamabad: National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST) has achieved an unprecedented milestone in Pakistan by commissioning a sophisticated facility of computer-based entry test for its Fall Admissions 2012.


Owing to rapid advancements in the domain of information technology, NUST has been continuously adapting itself to meet the current as well as futuristic educational needs. The university provides its students with on-campus facilities on a par with the latest technology. In that context, state-of-the-art Cloud Computing equipment has been installed at H-12 Campus which can accommodate at a time over a thousand candidates. The software automatically generates question paper from the question bank a little while prior to the commencement of examination and compiles result instantaneously without any human intervention.


It is heartening to note that candidates appearing in the e-tests find themselves at great ease in examination. This venture in credible testing has been lauded by students and parents alike.
