The deadline is extended for entrance test applications... Is the entrance test mandatory for these seats?
And did the self finance students last year give the MCAT as a mandatory requirement?

DR.CURIOUS, I have already obtained my UHS MCAT roll number. Now, do I have to submit a new form to apply on an overseas seat? But usually admission forms are released AFTER the MCAT, right?

Any guidance will be profusely appreciated! :)

This is an extract from THE EXPRESS TRIBUNE dated July 23, 2014:

"Speaking about the eligibility criteria, he said, “The parents of the applicants should be registered with the Overseas Pakistanis Foundation. They should have a work permit from the country where they are currently residing. The students should have lived in that country for at least five years and should not have stayed in Pakistan for more than six months during that period. They should have passed 12th grade from the country where their parents are residing. The parents of the applicants must be domiciled in a district of the Punjab and should get a certificate from the relevant Pakistani embassy.”

Medical college admissions: Overseas Pakistanis to be treated as foreigners - The Express Tribune


It used to be called, 'Self-finance'.
"The Government of the Punjab, has converted 76 Foreign Self-Finance Seats (72 MBBS
and 04 BDS) already earmarked in public sector medical and dental colleges of the
Punjab, into Open Merit Seats for the Children of Dual Nationality Holders of
Pakistani Origin and Overseas Pakistanis with effect from the Session 2015-16." (source : http://www.uhs.edu.pk/mcat/rulesnreg_pak_overss.pdf statement (1) )



The deadline is extended for entrance test applications... Is the entrance test mandatory for these seats?
And did the self finance students last year give the MCAT as a mandatory requirement?
The answer to your first query is stated on this page http://www.uhs.edu.pk/mcat/rulesnreg_pak_overss.pdf
This is what it says:

"(f) The candidate has either appeared in the Entrance Test of the
Punjab for the current session or has appeared in SAT II
examination scoring a minimum of 550/800 marks each in
Chemistry, Biology and Physics/Mathematics or has cleared
MCAT® of United States with an aggregate score of 24 and
above. The scores of Entrance Test of Punjab are valid for one
year that is for current session only whereas the validity of SAT II
and MCAT® scores is two years.
(Note: For admission
against local Open Merit seats appearance in Entrance Test
of Punjab is mandatory)."

About your second question, last year the seats were simply 'Self-finance'. This year Self-finance seats have been converted. So, they aren't 'Self-finance' anymore.

But, I think there are still 'Self-finance' seats existing for foreign students. You can find out more about these here. Admission of Foreign Students (By the way, this page may be old.)
