    4 things:
    1) Diploma
    2) Transcript of the last 4 years
    3) Proof of schools registration with whomever your school is associated with (advancED, etc.)
    4) Detailed marksheet for each year

    This is unrelated but I really want to ask.. My dad absolutely does not want me to go into medicine. He says the condition of doctors is horrible in Pakistan and it would be too hard for me.
    I fell in love with medicine when I went to a medical uni on a school trip and it has been my dream since so long.
    He wants me to do BSc. Microbiology and then MSc. and PHD. He says it has a better scope.
    I have started doubting myself. I don't know how to convince him.

    I know im not eligible enough to answer since i didnt start med school yet but heres my two cents. Do it. Do what your heart says. Medicine wont ever lose its value. I agree the situation of doctors in Pakistan is not the best, but thats with almost every profession in Pakistan. I know because i asked a lot of doctors. Some say its good, some say its bad. One doctor told me the reason (he taught many batches). He says 90% of thee students are there because they were forced to (better marriage etc.) and 10% were the ones who actually wanted to. So you can understand. Those 10% weren't even toppers or geniuses. They just played it smart. Also you can try your best to go abroad as thats what one of the doctors told me. I would also suggest you ask some med students, graduates and specialized doctors. And never underestimate yourself. You can do anything as long as you're enthusiastic about it 😉.

    Thank you so much. I just needed to hear something positive from someone. May God make our path to medicine easier for us.

    Hey Anne so you said gov colleges in punjab fees are the same for local and overseas students. I looked into KEMU and AIMC but their fees for locals and overseas are different. Also would i need a punjab domicile and have to have done inter in punjab to apply there on local seats?

    I don't know where you read that the fees is different, because in the uhs faq of 2018 it's clearly written. see this:

    Q.10 Who can appear in the Admission Test of the Punjab?Ans: The candidate having domicile of any district of Punjab and Islamabad (ICT) canappear in the Admission Test of the Punjab.Students of Gilgit-Baltistan will also appear in the Admission Test of the Punjab foradmission against seats reserved for them in government medical/dental collegesof the Punjab.Foreign nationals/Overseas Pakistanis/Dual Nationality holders of Pakistani origincan also appear in the Admission Test of the Punjab for admission against seatsreserved for them in government medical/dental colleges. However, they areexempted from Admission Test provided they have passed SAT II (SAT Subject)in Chemistry, Biology and Physics/Mathematics with a minimum of 550/800 marksin each or have secured at-least 24 (498 in new scoring system) score in MCAT ®International.

    ...(d) The fee structure for these 76 reserved seats shall be the same as that forOpen Merit Seats for local students. The detail is available in the Prospectusof the current session.

    Infact, here's the link:

    Yes you would NEED to have a domicile of the province, if you want to take Admission test of that province, so same case is for Punjab too. (except I think candidates from AJK and Gilgit-Baltistan). Others who want to take admission on local seats in other provinces, should take their province's admission test, just like they would for their local seats, and then apply to the other province's reciprocal seats for your own province.

    That is in private medical colleges ($18000). I don't know the fees I am sorry, but maybe eduvision will give you some information, however I am not sure the fees written there is right or not.

    Just wanted to share a recent piece that talks about studying medicine abroad (specifically in Europe).

    supports students through every stage, from exploring medical schools, attending medical school, through residency and continuing medical education.

    Heyy
    I can totally understand your struggle.
    Was there once too.

    If you're overseas then you cannot apply through open merit unless you've done your high school education in Pakistan. You can only apply through overseas seats which cost a lot. The tuition is in USD$$. This as far as what I know.

    I'm not too sure whether you'd come under open merit if you do the MDCAT. You'd have to confirm this with authorities. However, the SAT II can be done in many countries. Make sure to find a location in Pakistan before doing it. It would still count if it's done in Pakistan.

    However, there's another program you might consider looking into, that's PTAP. This is for dual nationals, if you get in through this program, then you pay local fees for medical school. FJMC is on their list.

    I have a blog and youtube channel on med schools in Pakistan and being an international student here.

    Check it out if you'd like.

    I can only speak for my personal experience. I'm passionate about Medicine because I find it so inspiring how many years doctors sacrifice to serve humanity. I love interacting with humans, and I'm super interested in OBGYN research. Your father is not wrong. However, that being said, nothing in this world comes easy. To be dedicated to a profession like medicine, you do need true dedication, it's super tough!! If you don't have the resiliance to get through 10 years of non stop hardwork, then medicine isn't for you. If you believe in yourself and think you can handle the stress level because your passionate about it, then yes, go for it. Know that the road will be bumpy, but the journey is worth it. The experiences are worth it. I have a nice blogpost about pros and cons of government colleges in Pakistan. It might help give you a scope of how it works here.

    But this all is true for Sindh. The situation is not the same for Punjab. You do get on open merit seats if you give MDCAT, does not matter whether you did A levels or fsc or in pakistan or abroad.. and on overseas, you're eligible for it if you give alevels outside Pakistan, in GOVERNMENT medical colleges the fees is the SAME AS OPEN MERIT SEATS. And if you're applying to the overseas seats in PRIVATE medical colleges like Shalamar, FMH, Akhtar Saeed etc. then it's $18000, even the private medical colleges with NUMS entry test like CMH and Shifa have $18000 per annum, for Army Medical College(since it's semi-government type) it is $12000 per annum for overseas seats. I hope I am clear about this.

    Anna you are correct. I confirmed this with a student from kemu. Btw the merit is extremely high for kemu. Im thinking about leaving mcat and retaking my bio sat (740) and aim for an 800. Physics is easy to score 800 on because of the curve. Also ill update on the fees soon when the person replies.

    Also, why didnt the top 2 people get their fsc marks deducted? They're on overseas seats..
