The Higher Education Commission (HEC) has announced that it will not recognize two-year bachelors’ degrees issued to students enrolled in such programmes after the 2018 academic year. The notification stated that despite the HEC’s decision to phase out two-year BA/BSc programmes after the academic year 2018, it had been noted that the programmes are still being offered by universities, the DAIs and their affiliated colleges.
In 2019, the HEC had announced that they would replace the two-year BA/BSc programme with a new postsecondary programme – to be called Associate Degree (AD) programmes. The notification had exclusively stated that the BA-BSc programmes would be discontinued soon.
