  1. HEC the government run organisation should give benefits to the students of top 3 ranked universities. Students of these top ranked universities must get internships, jobs in government organisations.

  2. a slam a.universities student k dum sy hain,aik chuuti uni sy b aik asa student aa skta ha jo mulk ko tarki ki rah ma gamzn kr skta ha.

  3. hec has missed plenty of good universities like uet.gujrat uni.sarghodha uni etc.the poor students cant afford to pay the fee in high ranked uni….the govt should make serious efforts regarding this matter….

  4. comsats engnrzz roxx,,,az place at #9 in all over pakistan..azz soon comsats will got ist position in all the catagiriez in all over pak.
    their faculty,labs,examination system,,,like roxx man,,b a part to b a comsian….

  5. UET(s) should think about the fact why multinationals prefer students from some private/semi-gov. univ. because generally students from these institutions(like lums, Fast etc.) are more professional. No univ. in this demanding era can just fix some higher place just because they are funded by gov. or have huge land/building.

  6. I Appreciated all universities but where is the ranking of the university of sindh Jamshoro?????
    Why Our university is not in the top 10 ranking of universities in Pakistan???

  7. if anyone have an information about entry test of any university
    than tell me at 03477258053
    becuz i live in village
    and i also share with u

  8. shaaram karo the top uni of engineering is UCE T BZU.where is this????????

  9. AIOU is not good university because he failed to the student and only made as rozgar because AIOU student not gain job and wastage of time plz. u plz. not admitt in AIOU

  10. COMSATS is not an institute .COMSATS is University (CUST)

  12. My question is refer to all the nation of PAKISTAN. “Have you gain knowledge about your character?”Please,tell me,Is there any course in the World that teach your about your character?

  13. Where is King Edward Medical University? People, you placed Isra, even Khyber medical & not KEMU! Haha! A nice ranking to laugh at.

  14. what the hell is this.what will be the future of those who came from far away villages just for the sake of studies,who belong from poor families,hardly made their needs bla bla….

  15. What is the status of affiliated colleges with different universities?

  16. Where is NED university , a top ranked university is now not in the list………….why???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

  17. This is clearly biased ranking of HEC. Why the few of well reputed universities are not included in the top ranking where they must be. eg. Mehran engineering university & NED university Karachi. HEC must think about that next time.

  18. How could this b happen…..
    what about the students studing in those universities which were excluded….

  19. Assalamualikum dear’s

  47. Dear Brother in this way can’t find university, you should apply to ministry of education Pakistan and HEC, and they will send your request to your suggested universities. If any university accepts your application than your education from Pakistan can be possible or you may also apply directly to university. I want to let you know. To avail admission in Pakistan tope Universities is bit difficult due to tough competition and huge number of applicants , you must try some medium grade universities for easy admission. To be very Honest You should try QUID-I-AZAM University, Punjab University, Karachi University, NUST, Islamic international university etc these are the best universities of Pakistan. I was graduated from Hazara University Mansehra; you may also apply there for your desired program. please feel free to contact me if in future my assistace will be required.
    Ihtisham Bukhari
    university of Science and technology China

  51. How dare anyone says COMSATS is not a good Uni!! Just check its ranking above mentioned by HEC, 9th in Top 10 & also first in COMPUTER & IT category. And Batoor Taban is asking to pursue Higher education in COMPUTER SCIENCE…! So Batoor, the best Uni for u will be either COMSATS(main Campus) or FAST. Rest is up to you.

  62. salam.
    hey friends uni uni uni…
    no need to ask about the top universities…..if u r so talented then u should take adm in normal uni and then get gud marks/div that would show ur talent…..
    degree is just vlike a piece of paper no matter that comes from quaid e azam or punjab uni.if you have gud gpa from hazara uni or any other normal uni then obviously u can easily get scholarships……..
    so work hard.dont blame any institute or uni just go ahead

  63. my cozn get had got adm in msc in hazara uni there he did stand 1st in his department in physics…..
    now he is doing phd from abroad through hec……
    but the university was not quaid e azam or comsats,student was talented and intellectual….
    so miss batoor u should get adm in any uni rather that will be comsats od bahria uni or lums,its all depends upon ur hardwork
    suppose if u got adm in the top rank uni but u failed to get good marks then in the result who will be responsible????????????
    definitly u urself not me or any other who is providing u info here………
    so think from urself that how capable u r……

  64. w salam , u r right enough brov ,,,,,,,, but not much correct ,, cuase the institution u r getting degree from matterz alot ,,, why student preffr high rank univ bcoz they hav higly qualified teachers n system . and every other thing like labs ,,,, if some has degree of a normal univ which dont hav qualified teachers n he never hav worked in labs ,,,,,,, the companies will preffer????????????

  65. Mr. Muavia plz get ur English correct first and then comment. U have written every sentence with a number of mistakes.

  66. why can’t B.Z.U AT NO. 1 at hec ranking of universities as per zikarians r toppers in every field ds year we got 79 positions out of 82 in punjab youth festivel..

  67. sir

    i beg to say that the NUML University Islamabad H-9 is not found in the ranking of top pakistani university respactfully this is the top universty of pakitan and that will not fond on top ten universities

  68. AOA,sir sarghoda university and virtual university have value of there degree for MBA 3.5 years?

  69. I am very sorry and in great worry that none of our university is able to stand on the international platform, except some medical universities. All are ratta and phutta based universities.

  70. Distance learning is a great advance forward in making education more accessible to millions of Americans who would simply not have the time or resources to obtain a college degree or technical certificate. It allows people from all over the country, even in remote or rural areas to plug into technology that lets them learn, at their own speed and on their own time.*.

  71. what about usman institute of technology karachi for computer engineering. what’s the difference between BS in computer engineering and BE in computer engineering

  72. Allah ki lanaat he Punjab University aur iski administration pe. Sab ke sab departments lanteyo aur penduo se bhare hue he. 80% students lahore se bahir ke hote he and all in all it is an extremely low merit institute with respect to facilities and education quality. I myself graduated from PUCIT (IT departement of PU) & believe me it literally sucks!

  73. slam all.NUML uni peshawr ke ranking kse ko pta hae to plz bta de.ke ranking mae knse numbr pe hae NUML uni peshawr.

  74. paisey do……..
    Ranking Berhao….
    in Pakistan this is fair way to progress in any kind of department
    paisey dedo ranking le lo…………………………………………………………

  75. is there any diference in degree of uet lahore main campus and its sub campus
