    Hello, I am a us student applying to AKU. Does anyone know which documents I need to submit in order to get my US HS diploma converted into the Pakistani equivalent?

    so for some reason i cant send links on this site right now but ill try and help anyway..

    so go on google and search "ibcc equivalence form". the application should appear in the top results in a pdf form for 2020. click on that and download it. read it THOROUGHLY. in the form, they have a list of documents you need and steps to take for receiving your equivalence certificate.

    btw what program are you applying through? (SFS, PTAP, etc.) I'm also from the US and I'm applying for kmc through ptap this year

    I have the form.
    I have a few questions:

    Under the US requirements section, number 8, it asks for "Grade Report duly issued by AP College Board, USA, (enclosed in an envelope to be opened by an officer or official of IBCC) should beattached with this form".
    The thing is, I don't know if the college board doesn't issue Grade Reports (what are they, anyway?) and if it did, I'm not sure how I would get it to Karachi when I'm in the US right now.

    The attestation portal (attest . ibcc . edu . pk/home/signup) requires a CNIC, but I don't have my NIC or B-form with me. What would a non-Pakistani citizen do in this situation? Does attestation of my passport or HS diploma require the passport/diploma to be there in person? If so, that's a problem since it's in the US. (This is the biggest issue for me- I can't do anything until this gets sorted out).

    Do you have any experience getting #5, "Attested copy of Certificate of Accreditation of the concerned school with approved/recognized accrediting Association of USA orConcerned US State Department of Education, USA"?

    #11 "Four photo copies of each educational documents must be attached.(Copies attached with application must be signed bycandidate/applicant himself/herself)" Does this mean every single document must be copied three more times and signed?

    I understand if you don't know the answers to some of these, any help would be appreciated.

    I'm applying to a private medical college so I'm not sure if there is a specific program for that.
