But this is not as simple as one considers, getting education is not only the purpose of these esteemed institutes rather they play a bigger role of personality development. Four walls of institutions have larger objectives than the sole aim of educating the course books only. Personality development, self-grooming, communication skills, interpersonal skills, leadership and many more of such nature are taught in schools, colleges and universities. However, only top colleges in Rawalpindi and top ranked universities in Sargodha can serve the bigger purpose as other institutes are already too much stuck in other operational tasks.
