The issue of No ILETS testing center in Balochistan was raised by Balochistan Voices in November last year. It was highlighted that candidates of Balochistan, willing to appear for IELTS test, have to travel to other cities for this test and they have to incur additional expenses which was unaffordable for under-privileged people.
Civil Society Balochistan and provincial office bearers of Chevening Alumni Association played their role in bringing this issue to the attention of concerned authorities.
The details of MoU were not made public and it’s not known that from when the ILETS tests will be started in Quetta.
