It is worth mentioning that KMU is the first university in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa which has adopted the modern digital system of e-assessment to make examinations of various fields and levels easy, transparent and cost-effective. Under this system, all the undergraduate and postgraduate examinations organized by the university will be gradually converted into e-assessment (computer-based examinations).

He said that we have set a target to convert all MBBS, BDS, nursing and allied health sciences traditional method exams to modern e-assessment systems within the next six months. He said that this system has already been approved by the academic council of the university, so now we have decided to convert all paper-based undergraduate and post-graduate examinations into e-assessment (computer-based examinations) for which development of the software and hardware is in progress on a daily basis and the day is not far when all KMU exams will be transferred from paper to computer in the near future.
