They said after having a proper and uniform syllabus in place the students wont' get confused. They also demanded appointment of paramedics in the paramedical faculties and giving the medical faculty the status of a board.

They also rejected the recently announced examination results, saying the results of paramedical diploma should be declared after three months of examination, and the rechecking system should be restored

They also criticised the Peshawar medical faculty members and demanded of the government to make them accountable for their mismanagement, and to form a committee of paramedical students so they could convey their concerns to the KP secretary health and other higher authorities.
