    Future Of NUST Cadet In Army???

    Hello.
    I wanted to ask this question that those who enter AMC through NET (NUMS) entry test are considered Paying cadets or nust cadets so do these students end up as serving army doctors or are they sent off just like private medical colleges do?? Please reply fast I have missed the registration of Army Cadets for AMC.

    Well if your father is in army/navy/air force/ defence paid or is army retired only then you can apply as a paying cadet. Paying cadets have to serve the army for a minimum of 3 years and after that they may convert it into permanent commission. If not then you will be admitted as a civilian cadet and will not be bound to serve the military but if you intend to join the army later on after graduation students of NUMS colleges are given preference over other medical colleges graduates.

    In my question I stated that if I were to get admission in AMC through NUMS entrance exam (I am from Civilian family) will I be in army at end because many of my friends said that even through AMC you are only selected in army or end up as military doctor if you apply in AMC as a normal cadet.

    No this is not true. If you go as a civilian cadet ( nustian cadet) throught NUMS test. You will not be an army doctor at the end. You will be a civilian and free to go anywhere. But if you would like to join the army after graduation as a GDMO you will be prefered over graduates of other medical colleges

    nums cadets are not considered for any sort of army service you can separately apply though after mbbs that is but no such compulsion at all!
