    Oh no dont do that. If you have a passion for medicine then you shouldn't leave it. Try government seats local seats or going to another country is another cheaper option.

    "(4) The fee structure for these 76 reserved seats shall be the same as that for Open Merit Seats for local students."

    Scroll down on the website.
    Then it states the eligibility criteria for Overseas Pakistanis.

    You really cant rely on a piece of info from 2015/16. Colleges dont have only 4 overseas seats per college. What i understand from this is that before the foriegn and overseas/dual national seats were seperate. In 2015, they might have combined them together. So they probably mean that the foriegn and overseas seats will have the same fees now. If you look at any university's website, the fees for overseas students will range from 6k-18k usd. For locals max is around 6k usd but that is the max. Amc is around 1000 usd for locals. But 12000 usd for overseas

    Assalamualaikum, I am quite certain that if you/your father/your mother have a domicile of Punjab, you can apply there on the overseas seats in GOVERNMENT colleges, which have same fees AS LOCAL fees, and you'll be considered for those seats as long as you've done your A level outside Pakistan. So judging from your details, yes you can apply to those seats on SAT II basis and have the same fee as open merit seats. I have friends who got admission on those seats so I know. (However PRIVATE medical colleges overseas/foreign seats demand a huge amount which you have to pay in dollars, but you're not applying to the private ones anyway, right?). You can also apply to the overseas seats on MDCAT basis (and obv on open merit too), but A level students usually score really well on SAT II and have to work harder for MDCAT to achieve a competitive score. @Comicaldervish is right about overseas seats having a fee in dollars but THAT is for SINDH only, not Punjab. I don't know why but Sindh medical colleges consider an overseas student foreign if they have done their A levels from outside, but that's not the case in Punjab. Hope I got my point clear!

    - - - Updated - - -

    And I'm telling you all this based on updated information, my friends got on those seats just last year, and I also have friends from Karachi who say the same thing as @Comicaldervish is saying, so I know the rules are different in both the provinces, you guys are confusing each other lol, I hope my information helps both of you! Happy to help and about SAT II yes try clearing all your concepts from Barron's, and especially for Biology DO learn the Kingdoms etc. chapters the're important, and see the percentage of questions from each chapter for each subject and focus on them according to that and the concepts you already have... (for all three subjects) Then do as many official tests available and solve all book tests, also just skim through Princeton's if your friends have, borrow from them and solve its tests. do chapter end questions and allot a time limit to each, and try solving all those questions even before the time limit, this is how you practice under the time limit, so you get more time for the more challenging questions. Also revise your mcqs time and on, the ones you got wrong and the ones you weren't sure about.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Also for Biology the DNA and genes and those inheritance chapters and mutations, pedigree diagrams etc. all are REALLY important. and for official tests for all subjects YES search pdfdrive.com it will have another book, I thinkk it's name is The Official SAT Subject tests or something, it has one test for all subjects. Other than that you can get a separate official tests book for each subject, it only has two tests ( -_- ) (All these books are from collegeboard itself, you can see on their website when you're registering for the test) I know so I just borrowed from my friends, because they're one time tests. You can also maybe halve the cost with another friend and have turns studying them, the books are just overpriced -_-

    @Comicaldervish Anytime! No you shouldn't say that.. because really the system in each province sucks for some reason -_- In KP, the overseas seats are ONLY 3 for the whole province can you believe it! LIKE THEY SHOULD BE ATLEAST 5! I don't understand why no one is being fair to us, we always have to raise our voice for our rights.. this is totally unfair, being an overseas student may be a privilege but we're still not given the rights we deserve, not everyone can pay off the huge expenses of a foreign student, and then in private there's no such thing as foreign AND overseas, the overseas are simple considered on foreign seats, while foreigners CAN mostly afford the fees, the overseas students are left in the middle of nowhere -_-

    Hmm right. So i was wondering, since you said for gov colleges the overseas and local fees are the same, is it possible for me to apply in overseas seats? Or will i need a punjab domicile? If i can then can you name some of the best gov med colleges in punjab. I know aimc is one but what are its fees?

    Nope, you NEED to have the punjab domicile for that, it's clearly stated in a document by the uhs. I don't know about the fees but if the one given on eduvision is right then that must be it. Yes AIMC is one of the best, then there's also SIMS, and KEMU is also liked by a majority as a first preference but if you ask me, I prefer AIMC over KEMU. RMU is also well known (that's Rawalpindi). But I think DOW in Karachi is better ranked? I'm not sure, but better focus on what's possible for you and not get side tracked from your original goal. May Allah help you with it, Ameen. Just keep a positive outlook about helping humanity and all, He will help you with your goals IA.

    @AnnaCristophe I will InShaAllah

    - - - Updated - - -

    @Comicaldervish Considering everything now I feel like I should focus more on SAT. I've heard that it is easier for A-level students to score in Sat2 as compared to the MDCAT.

    Sat is a lot easier than a levels. But i would say take all the opportunities u have. The more tests you take the more opportunities u have.
    Btw what grade are you in?
