Controller of Examination Message2018-07-21T07:35:59+00:00

It is a general perception that Office of Controller Examinations (OCE) just does the mundane job. It is a false notion. I believe that, OCE can play a vital role in the academia if its resources are used strategically. Any University which dreams of becoming flagship in educational arena must have an eye on the console to analyze staggering parameters indicating level of quality education being imparted, teaching pedagogy in regards to its impact on the students’ attitude – through results.
Veracity, Quality and Control are the rudimentary principles on which I firmly believe in. By the grace of Allah and indomitable commitment of OCE team in a short time we have been able to reinstate the credibility, reliability and functionality of this most critical and dynamic department. By virtue of deep involvement and dedication in the examination matters, I am pleased that OCE now plays a vital role in the University’s strategic decisions.
Now examination team has embarked on reshaping its services. We are heading towards emerging as swift service provider (SSP). And to achieve it we have to energize and exert more collectively by pledging ourselves to the highest level of commitment facilitating all stakeholders with our services and values.
