    hey,
    i think this means that you have to appear in the medical entrance test that is required for government colleges in balochistan, the same way students applying from punjab have to appear in the mdcat that is required for gov colleges all around punjab, the one by UHS

    Hey guys, bazish here. I gave ETEA, AKU and NUMS last year. Okay so unfortunately due to some reasons i took a gap year. I'll be giving these 3 tests again this year and applying to any college i can 🙂 .How are you guys prepping for aku? We have alot of time this year thank god, but i guess the competition will be sky high.

    hey bazish since you have experience with the AKU test could you verify if the science reasoning portion of the test is similar to the science reasoning portion in teh ACT tests.

    Okay so i just did some act science questions on their officialwebsite. I think very few reasoning questions in aku's test were like that. The other act questions which I've done before were very easy so i dont think act science is very similar to the questions in aku's test. Majority were puzzles or logical reasoning type questions, and the maths portion consisted mostly of probability and sequence questions. Which i thought were tough even though i took math in alevels and gave SAT 1 twice, and scored very good in all of em. I myself am using brilliant.org for the science and math reasoning, and sat 1 math without calculator questions for practice.

    Dont you have any relatived in sindh? If not, search bookstores in urdu bazar karachi on google, you'll find many. Try calling them, tell them that you want these books. They'll tell you what to do if its possible. If even that doesn't workout, try going to any bookstores near you. Ask them if they can order these books from karachi. I myself had them sent to me by my relatives in sindh. For now, ive scanned XII year sindh biology book. I'll send it in the group dw.

    I don't think we need them? If you check their resource list, they've endorsed PTB for Biology and Physics and Federal for Chemistry

    Edit: check the top of each of the attached documents.

    What about the CARS section and other passage based questions on the American MCAT? Are they any similar to what appears on the AKU test for science reasoning?
    Also you mentioned doing SAT 1 math for practice, is that the level of questions you encountered on the test?

    Ive no idea about American mcat, all i know is that you have to give it after undergrad which makes it reasonably more complicated than something that's for high school grads. So i think no.
    As far as SAT 1 goes, its for practice. Cuz you wont have a calculator in the test and the questions are mcq type. And yes SOME questions are similar and the concepts for SAT 1 are also helpful in the test

    Actually no, if you match the syllabus for the test, which is given on their website, with sindh's biology books they match word to word. Federal and punjab's biology books have extra stuff, and are missing some topics too.

    The test syllabus is the same as the one outlined in the resource guides linked above 😕
    And I just checked a few chapters in Bio PTB and matched them with the syllabus outline on the website. It's the same 😕 shouldn't we follow the books that they have endorsed? 😕

    Duno, last time i checked sindh's books were more similar. Even a very famous academy in karachi for aku, dr hussham, they also recommend sindh wali book for aku.
    BUT in aga khan schools(their high schools). They used punjab wali books for bio. I'd still suggest kai you check the biology syllabus on the website with ptb books.

    basically i thought i’d just go through sindh’s bio and federal’s chem, ive just completed my fsc so i’m pretty well acquainted with the ptb books, if anyone knows where i could find the other two that’d be great, and bazish it would be such a help if you could send it in the group, thanks in advance -
