    local vs. foreign seat

    hello all..i am planning on applying/going to DOW or any one of the med schools in Karachi. i am a foreigner (Canadian) and i cannot afford to pay like 11000 dollars a year
    i know people prove they live in Karachi n get a local seat
    what is the procedure?
    i know there's more than just writing the entry exam!
    you give your High school transcript and mine is obviously Canadian

    so please let me know how i can get admission on a local seat so i don't have to pay so much money in dollars


    [Mod Edit: Read the rules, thanks.]

    ok first you need to convert ur marks from Ibcc and then fill the form up for local, and right the entry test, you would only be eligible for the entry test if your ibbc converted marks are above 65%, and if u pass the test then they look at the total merit for the ibcc marks and test marks together to see who is higher ...ps...why would u go to pakistan and pay that much amt of dollars when you can study in canada for the less amt, i mean 11000 is alot, or even you wanna search for school that take $6000 dollars as well, but these are in punjab its all up to u i got in but left i knw there is a whole tabooooo that doctors earn so much money in Canada i knw they do but foreing docs i seen what happnes to them when they come back...
