Public opinion sharply divided over the amount of seats reserved for men and women in medical colleges.

Islamabad, October 21, 2014


According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan, 59% Pakistanis support more seats being reserved for men than for women in medical colleges; 40% oppose it.

A nationally representative sample of adult men and women, from across the four provinces was asked, “A large number of girls who study medicine do not continue their medical profession after getting married. Some people say that men should have more seats than women reserved for them in medical colleges to reduce this trend.  This will result in a lot of women getting deprived of admission in medical colleges. Do you support or oppose more seats being reserved for men than for women in medical colleges?” In response to this question, 59% respondents said they support more seats being reserved for men than for women in medical colleges, while 40% said they oppose it. 1% respondents did not respond.
