If you don't mind me asking, what sort of extra-curriculars are you working on?
I hope the test isn't that hard too. It doesn't seem like that, based on the sample questions they have online.
But, you never know.

nowadays
I gave the test last year. Unfortunately i couldn't pass it last time so I'm applying again this year. One thing that i can say now is that in the whole aku admission process luck plays a big role. Some people do alot of preparation and get in, while some dont even prepare for a day and get in. Each batch of aku is very diverse, for example there are people with straight B's to people with distinctions.
Moreover they changed the passing criteria last year. Previously, you had to pass the whole exam together( pure sciences and reasoning). That meant even if you performed badly in the science portion, if you managed to get a good score in the reasoning portion, you'd get shortlisted. But last year🙄, you had to pass both portions separately.

Hey, so not working too much on the application. Obviously there's little to no extra-curriculars we can do rn. What are you doing these days?
What about your FSc Part 2 exams?

hey silver! well fsc p2 is cancellled, can’t say i’m not relieved, having to memorize all those long questions was slowly starting to eat my brain away, hmm i worked on a bit of extracurriculars these vacations, a lot of art work, and a classical musical course from yale (it went well with the violin playing) plus i’m heavily involved in the organisation i interned with, but that’s about it!

Hey, a friend of mine said that you should attach it with the stage II form i.e. after you've been shortlisted. It won't make a difference right now because you'll be shortlisted on the basis of your test score.
Also, none of your documents have to be attested. They announced this relaxation in light of the pandemic

Why Do I Need To Take A Second Provincial Test After AKU Test?

Hi, I am applying to AKU this year from Balochistan. I have contacted the admission department, and they have told me that I must take a second provincial test required by the PMDC, after the AKU test if I'm shortlisted. I am not sure what this test is? Do I need to sit the UHS test?
