What is NTS?
 



NTS stands for National Testing Service. Within the essential premise of raising the overall quality of education in Pakistan, an important objective of NTS is to establish a credible, technically appropriate and accurate system of performance evaluation for students of various educational institutions at various levels. It thus assists in carrying out an estimated ranking of students for admissions in various educational institutions.

It also extends services for the employed and unemployed professionals to get satisfactory jobs in their relevant area through an assessment of their knowledge base, skills, and professional abilities.

Thus, while NTS aims at providing quality services in educational testing and assessment mechanisms for various stakeholders, it also assists in promoting the overall quality of education as a value-added adjunct. The establishment of NTS is thus an important step in this direction


 
What are the Objectives of NTS?
 


Within the overall premise of contributing to the improvement of the quality of education in Pakistan, the important objectives of NTS include:

  • To improve upon the shortcomings in our prevailing performance evaluation system of candidates through establishing a credible, technically appropriate and accurate system of performance evaluation for students of different educational institutions at various levels.
  • To provide a standardized and uniform criterion for selecting candidates seeking admission to various universities in the country and abroad and also to provide a basis on which students, individuals and institutions can assess performance for preparation of various types of tests conducted by different international testing agencies.
  • Enable assessment and ranking not only in a particular subject on a general competency level but also help in identification of areas of strengths and weaknesses in its sub-contents on a disaggregated basis.
  • To provide a reliable and efficient system for evaluating the knowledge base and skills of candidates including professionals - employed and unemployed.
  • Establish a credible and reliable measure of assessing the students’ knowledge in commonly taught programs for relative ranking.
  • To bridge the gap between academic preparation and the practical market needs in a highly dynamic and competitive environment.
