Hey..
yes there is a university called *GANDHARA UNIVERSITY*.. there website is Gandhara University
and i m not surprized that u havnt heard of it .. as it was only established in 2002 ..

ammmm 12 lakhs to get admision .. i dnt knw abt that .. but you can check there website out

:: Welcome to Islamic International Medical College -Rawalpindi n its is ISLAMIC INTERNATIONAL MEDICAL COLLEGE!


n whether these univesities r good or not .. then it really depends on you wat r ur plans once your done with ur MBBS! .. Do u wanna cum back to Denmark? .. then you should really call the medical council in Denmark n see there opinion on these universities as both of them are private and not well known ..but if you r interested to go to private med school n around islamabad area then you should look at SHIFA MEDICAL COLLEGE .. it is well known in uk n there USML results r pretty good aswell if ur planing to go to states after MBBS! ..

Welcome to Shifa College of Medicine

n
good luck!

I also wanna get admission in Shifa or Agha khan
But i only have family in peshwar or rawalpindi, and my father does'nt agreed to let me take a room in some hostel thing. So that's why.

Otherwise i could go to Poland. But okay thanks for answering.

And i will check out these websites.

BUT can anybody tell me about what my chances are to get admission in a pak med. college when i am from denmark.

It seems like it's not that hard for American students. But do somebody know how well my chances are?

Thanks again :)

Your chances all depend on your grades, high school transcript, and equivalence score from IBCC. Whether you're applying from Denmark or the United States, the process is the same for all foreigners and so are the admission requirements. If you didn't go to "high school" then you'd submit the transcript of whatever is equivalent to high school in Denmark.

You need to have a minimum of 660 on the IBCC score to even be eligible for medical school in Pakistan, though that's not competitive in the least.

Anyway, the process is the same, so read up on the Admission into a Pak Med School Thread and also the IBCC thread you'll find all the info you need.#happy

IBCC converts grades from all over the world, so it won't be difficult for them to do yours either, but they won't tell you exactly how the conversion works. They never tell anyone that.

For the conversion you have to make sure that all your papers and transcripts are in English though, because if they're not, they can't convert your scores. Have the transcripts translated either in Denmark, or send your transcripts to your family in Pindi and have them get the transcripts translated into English from the National Univeristy of Modern Languages (NUML) here in Islamabad.

hey....


yup the current danish gradation scale consists of 10 grades ranging from 00 to 13, with 00 being the worst.
00-completely unacceptable performance.
03-very unsatisfactory performance.
5-not satisfactory perfomance.
6-acceptable performance.
7-average performance.
8-good performance. * right knw u stand aorund here*
9-very good performance.
10-excellent performance.
11-excellent performance with honours.
13-exceptionally excellent performance.

**Best way to make equivalences with other grading scales is to use percentiles, where 00 = 0% and 11 = 100%.**


The average grades in danish high school is 8.22!!!

as your grade is average so .. i think you stand around a C grade .. which is 60% .. so it should nt be a problem .. as u need above 60% in pre-med to get the admision in med school.. as a overseas student in pak!

but hey rather then asking me u should call the IBCC .. and ask them abt the conversion system!AS i minght be wrong ... i m just giving u my personal opinion..

n whoooo thats good u knw ur urdu pretty well then .. amm wat do u mean by OXFORD EXAM ? (GCSE OR AS)........N how could u do ISLAMIYAT IN denmark ? #confused

Quote:
"AND YEAH I HOPE THEY HAVE SOMETHING TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM ,,,"

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They will be able to convert ur grades with no problem ? lol .. As if I could Google the whole Danish grading system in less than a minute .. Then its there job ? never under estimate Pakistani officials!!! ?.
Personally when I was going through the whole procedure I didn?t even knw that something like that exist in pak?. My attitude was like : ? I m from uk so they would just be able to accept my certificates with no problem and its in English n recognized worldwide? haha it wasn?t easy at all ? but it was like a roller coaster ride .. With loadz of loops! ..
However?. it?s a RULE .. In every country to change the certificates according to there system ! ? so Pakistan is no difference!!

Hey? abt the *gandhara university * fee structure .. Sorry but I don?t have a clue .. But I can give u 3 different ideas/ways u can get that info on fee structure, they are:
1. Call them !
2. Write them a email
3. As you mentioned in ur early post that u hav family in Peshawar then u can ask one of them to go there personaly n get sum information regarding the fee structure!

Good luck with the examz! **INSHALLAH u will achieve ur desire grades*
Tc

N hang in there .. As its not easy to get admission in med school any where in the world ?. So please dnt under estimate Pakistan ? but once ur IN .. it will be all worth it!!
