All legitimate sources for making money online

Making money online is not a fraud, but most sites fraud internet users that they are a legitimate source of earning money online. You can make handsome earnings through different ways like freelancing, affiliate marketing, working on PTC sites and Blogging. All of these are completely different modes of online work which help you generate some extra income online, but never ever think of completely relying on them as a source of earning for your life. You can think of them as some extra cash or pocket money (but not as a regular income).

Pakistani Universities offering Distance Learning Programs

What is Distance Learning?

It might be that some of the readers are not familiar with the concept of distance learning education, therefore I would like to define it first before talking about how it emerged and what benefits it has.

Distance Learning is a method of learning in which the students do not attend regular classes, rather they study at home utilizing the tools of study provided to them by their institute. For example, many distance learning institutes provide course material consisting of printed text (books or handouts), electronic media (CDs or Video/Audio lectures) and reference links for further reading. The course material is often accompanied with assignments to be completed within a particular time-frame and submitted to the institute for evaluation and feedback (either manually or online depending upon the institution one is studying from). The important thing to note is that distance learning involves direct absense of a teacher and a classroom environment which is often found in regular institutes (universities and colleges).

HEC denounces NTS as the approved testing body for admissions in Pakistani Universities

NTS - that has been conducting Admission tests like NAT, GAT-General, GAT-Subject and GAT-Law for admissions to various undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate programs in the Pakistani Universities - has been denounced from conducting any further such tests by the HEC (Higher Education Commission). Ever since the establishment of HEC in 2002, the NTS has been reporting itself as an approved "National Testing Service" by the HEC and using the HEC logo in this connection from time to time for conducting its affairs.

The HEC has directed the universities that it is not mandatory for them to accept NTS Tested Candidates for the purpose of admission and that the universities are now at their will to conduct admission tests. They (the Pakistani Universities) can now conduct admission tests either at their own or still contract any third-party including NTS for the purpose of conducting admission tests, which if done would be a legal private contractual arrangement. The Punjab University has already announced that it will not accept NTS for admissions.
