Three kinds of entry tests can be used for admission in all programs of FAST University.

Most students apply on the basis of the university’s own test but my opinion is that you should apply on both bases if you have attempted any other test, it will increase your selection chances. Because if you got admission on FAST entry test basis then well and good otherwise you can get admission on the basis of NTS NAT.
