Baig, kindly note to correct the following:
1) On page 313 in the first para a sentence is missing. The entire para should read like this. “Aga Khan University (AKU) was the first private medical institution of the country that started admitting students on the basis of a written admission tests and interview both conducted in-house. The students of AKU performed well in the FCPS and foreign certification examinations. This could be due to theit innovative curriculum and the teaching methodology however the fact that their process of student selection was different cannot be ignored”.
2) In table 1 and 2 the three columns which mention the mean and standard deviation of the students score are missing the minus sign (-) under each plus (+) sign for the standard deviation. Hence all the columns should read mean as X±SD.
3) Reference No.14 is quoted as superscript but missing from the list of references. So this superscript may be ignored.
