hey! I'm from Canada (currently in grade 12) and i am planning to go to pakistan (lahore), for the rest of my education as a dentist. Problem is that in Canada you don't need physics for university, but when i checked this forum, it said you must have physics (biology, chemistry and english). so now i'm in my last year of high school and don't have an option but to miss one year and complete grade 11 and 12 physics. So i was just wondering if there was an alternative for my situation or any solution. i really need help as soon as possible!
You have maths? I think you should better call the medical colleges you're looking forward to apply to and ask them up, or visit them, I don't think Physics is a requirement for someone applying as a foreigner.

This is the first time I'm hearing of a USMLE approved list and it's kind of thrown me into a state of panic...
Is there a difference between these schools and the PMDC approved schools?

Sorry if I'm asking a question that has already been answered.

Is Fauji Foundation University (the one in Islamabad) US approved? I only see the Fauji Foundation University in Rawalpindi on the list. What about the one in Islamabad?
FUMC, Islamabad is on the latest IMED FAIMER list.

Yes that's true, quite a few medical colleges of Pakistan are recognized by the medical board of California. The downside is you cannot get a residency or a medical license to practice in California if your school is not on that list.

Hey.I have just applied in Lmdc for mbbs. My aggregate is 79.7%. Is it a satisfactory score?and what type of questions do they ask in their aptitude test?

You have a chance with that aggregate, just do well on their interview. And, LMDC does not have an aptitude test.
Good luck.

I see that Islam Medical college's name is in there but Islam Dental College is not. Should I assume that they are the same thing?
I suppose yes because the college's website stated on imed.faimer leads to both the medical and dental college on the home page. So you should be fine.
