Hi, my name is Rijja, and I'm a current high school senior in the US. I'm planning on applying to medical school in Pakistan ( Aga Khan (my top choice), Shifa, Dow, and Fazaia to be specific) this upcoming application cycle 2022-23. There's almost no information available for foreign students, specifically those from the US and Canada, who are applying to Pakistani MCs, so I wanted to make a post where other foreign applicants could share information as there's no other forum or post on here for the 2022-23 cycle for foreign students.

Also with the changes Collegeboard made in the past 2 years (removing the SAT II) and the PMC's response by removing the SAT and SAT II as entry test replacements, I think a discussion like this is definitely needed because we now have to study for entry tests that have a different curriculum than ours. In addition, I personally have so many questions and have done a lot of research in the past four years about Pakistani medical schools, the application process, changes that have occurred, and people's experiences, and would love to share/answer other people's questions. I have two other forum posts that i'll link that have links and general information i've gathered in the past 4 years that I think will be helpful for anyone applying from the US or Canada.


As for me personally, my top choice is Aga Khan in Karachi and I've done a lot of research and have a bunch of resources regarding them if anyone is also applying there. Additionally for reference I've done the Advanced Placement (AP) track in all the required IBCC courses for pre-med equivalence and in other subjects. There's not a lot of information available for us on this forum or on the internet as a whole, so I hope a discussion like this will help someone else who's applying and possibly anyone after us who ends up applying. Good Luck !!
