    Punjab is the only exception. I was not aware of this information, and could only speak to my personal experience. Would the situation be different for folks who got their education under a US/Canadian or any other educational system? The rest of Pakistan is pretty consistent with medical school requirements because it's all under pmdc.

    Hi.
    My A2 exams were cancelled and I'll have to give them in October. Problem is that I will be in Pakistan in October so I will have to give it privately. Two questions are bothering me..

    1. Will I still be considered an overseas Pakistani if I gave my AS in UAE and A2 in Pakistan?
    2. Do they accept privately appearing students?

    I don't know the exact answer to no. 1. I don't think it should be an issue for them since you've done most of your high school education abroad. However, perhaps you can confirm this with HEC (Higher Education Commission).

    Oh good luck with that! Yes Physics is actually easier to score on, but with Biology it's not impossible either! and what do u mean by fsc marks deducted, i'm sorry i don't get your point?

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..

    After ibcc equavalency your marks become fsc marks and they are deducted by a percentage. For ex... For a levels A is 90% i think and so the max you can get is 90. For american system or internal examinations max deduction is 15%. Also i changed my plans. Its practically impossible for you to get into kemu/aimc unless you did a levels or something other than internal exams.

    For people who are giving their A-Levels in October, they will have to apply in the next cycle of admissions i.e. 2021-2022 right? Does anyone have any more info regarding this?

    well yes that's true but with SAT you can get 100% as well which makes the max possible aggregate for any overseas student 95% and even more if they're a HafizeQuran

    - - - Updated - - -

    Oh well wait a minute you've done FSc right? then you should be having a good chance at mcat if you work hard! IA

    Oh okay....

    Well since im in a school which has internal exams ibcc will cut about 11-15 percent. So realistically i would have about 86. Final aggregate would be like 93 max (IF everything goes well). Also i realized i cant even apply in uhs gov colleges because even for overseas u need punjab domicile. So i can only apply to private unis of pakistan.

    if you do SAT II then you do not give the entrance exam. the SAT II is in lieu of the entry test.
