Testing unchartered territories
The IBA Testing and Admissions department became the first testing agency in Pakistan to conduct recruitment tests across the globe simultaneously. The candidates residing in United Kingdom, Canada, UAE and Pakistan took the test for the position of Trade Officers sanctioned by the Ministry of Commerce, Government of Pakistan.
During the year, a staggering total of 16 recruitment tests were conducted for renowned public and private organizations in which more than 3,000 candidates applied and were tested for different key positions at Sindh Revenue Board, Sindh Healthcare Commission, Ministry of Overseas Pakistanis & HRD, NICL, PWC Ferguson, Sindh Universities & Boards Department and Ministry of Commerce, to name a few.
A visible increase of 13 percent was also observed during the current admission year where more than 11,000 candidates applied for admission from more than 200 different cities and villages covering all provinces across Pakistan. Due to fixed intake and ever rising number of applicants, the admission and enrollment percentage was recorded around 12% and is expected to decline further every year.
The increased number of applicants at the IBA and demand for its testing services is due to the Institute's legacy of excellence and immense brand equity. The Testing and Admissions department is set to establish a new benchmark for testing services in the coming years.
