    Shifa has stopped assessing Iqbaliyat etc since last year. Relax and Focus on Science.

    I've done O levels and A levels and my aggregate is about 83% roughly.
    I didn't score very well on the MCAT because I left a lot of questions (the academy I went to freaked me out about the negative marking) and got a score of 67% which dragged my totaly down to 75% roughly.
    I'm giving the test for Shifa but I'm not sure how to prepare for it. I prepared very well for the UHS Mcat and my ONLY loss was leaving questions (40 >.>).
    Should I just go through an overview? I found the sample paper very easy and am quite confident of my A Level knowledge. I've read a couple of links etc and they all suggest preparing from your own book.
    Oh, I also passed the test for Aga Khan. I think the Shifa test shouldn't be as difficult?

    Shifa following the footsteps of FMDC.
    IHC has given the ultimatum of either to re-affiliate with Bahria University or to stop admissions until Shifa Tameer-e-Millat University is recognised by PMDC.

    Hey everyone. Tomorrow is the Shifa entrance test and i cant understand a few things. Would really appreciate if someone can help out
    1. The NTS roll number slip says that we have to bring our own card board. I need to conform this with someone that is this really true? i dont have a cardboard so what should i do? Wont they have tables?
    2. Wont NTS provide us with stationary?
    3. Do we have to shade the MCQs with a pen?
    4. Oh and does anyone know when the test will end. The slip say attendence will start at 9 30, so when will the paper start and end?

    Yes, I'm pretty sure it's true. You need to bring a clipboard and a pen because when you get the marksheet, it'll have another copy with it and when you bubble your answer, the pressure of the pen causes the second marksheet copy to be bubbled as well. You get to keep the second carbon copy of your marksheet so you can tally your answers when the answer key comes out.
    NTS will probably not provide staionary, and even if they do, I think using a pen you're familiar with would be a better idea.
    According to the document given by Shifa regarding test syllabus and the sample paper, the paper is said to be 2 hours long.
    Also, if attendance starts at 9;30 the paper will probably start at 10 and then end at 12pm.

    have you been accepted somewhere else? xD because you don't sound too concerned. Sucks how they had to change the format this year. :/ I have been pretend-studying for the past 8 months and I am pretty sure I am screwed so it's not just you.

    Mine was average I guess. Actually a bit below average. Luckily Shifa doesnt have the minimun marks policy like AKU, so im hopeful to make it to the interview list. That being said I wont be attending the interview anyways :p

    Oh and how did ur test go?? Will u go to Shifa if accepted?

    Haha. I just meant 'youu' as in SOMEONE I KNOW!

    My test was ok. Too early to say. If I get accepted then yes I think I will. I want to stay in Isb and for me to do that, I don't have many options.
    Why don't you want to go there? Dow type scene?

    Dont worry u'll make it.

    Actually I cleared the ZU test and even done with my interview of ZU. I have high chances of acceptance at ZU, and ziauddin and shifa are basicly at the same footing so I'll choose ZU as I prefer something close to home. ZU is 2 mins from my house :p and yeh there is DOW and SMC also. Difficult to get into those but still yej an option.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Btw I read on Dawn something about the degree of Shifa not being recognised. It has some issues with PMDC. I advise you look into it. And yes this issue also influenced my decision to stay in Karachi and not opt for Shifa. Do look into it

    I hope so. Any idea what we should ideally get in their entry test to make it?
    ZU is pretty great! Sounds like a plan to me!

    Oh yeah, I know about that. Shifa just established its own Shifa Tameer-e-Millat University which isn't affiliated with Bahria University anymore so they kind of have to reapply to get recognition by PMDC. It's not a big thing.

    I think if your aggregate is above 60 out of 90 you will surely be called for an interview. Leave the 10 percent of the interview and calculate ur aggregate out of 90. This should give you a rough idea what you would need in the test to get called for an interview. Oh and the 60 percent thing is an assumption based upon last years test. This year it could go either way or might even remain the same. It all depends how ppl this year did on the test. We'll have to wait till 5 for that
