    i give u the sincerest advice ever offered as a fellow human being. DO NOT go to IIMC rawalpindi. this institute is corrupt to the core with wrinkly old peverted ex army staff as your professors who suffer from an inferiority complex. if u do not posses a father or an uncle who is in the military as a high ranking officer, then they will make your stay a living hell. the teaching is next to nothing, the professors tell u not to read bd chaurasia, but the entire exm comes from it. anatomy is about 75 percent of the course. physiology is taught well by the only genuine professor in the whole faculty, brig. hameed. biochem teaching is non existant with each professor reading extracts from harpers and mushtaq for 2 hrs 2 times a week!

    In this institute i could not talk to my fellow female collegues, as i would run the risk of being failed at vivas etc. but army staff kids used to openly go to chinese whorehouses in islamabad and they got rewarded with rankingt positions!!!
    THIS INSTITUTE IS TOTALLY BOGUS, A CORRUPT MONEY MAKING MACHINE. IF U WANT TO SAVE UR MONEY AND MORE IMPORTANTLY YOUR TIME KEEP WELL AWAY!!! THERE ARE PLENTY OF OTHER NON CORRUPT GOOD MED UNIS IN THIS PINDI ISLAMABAD AREA, LIKE SHIFA, RMC AND WAH. STAY AWAY FROM IIMC [ Foul Language Edited ]

    Let's please keep this thread related only to medical colleges in Pakistan which are approved by the United States. If you would like to discuss any admissions related questions, please start a new thread or post in the thread regarding MBBS admissions for 2007. Thanks everyone!

    ok, I've checked most of these colleges websites and many of them only have a minimum requirement of 60 % marks on the IBCC conversion...(at least that's what's written on their websites)... is this true? Or cud it be that the minimum requirement is higher?

    60 percent is the minimum requirement, period. Below 60 %, no med college woould consider your application. Moreover, one still needs beyond 60% (probably in 70s and 80s) to be considered within competitive ground , though i must say foreigners can get around with lower percentages too

    Sorry below 60 %, one have to look into something else... at least this is what i know

    aamskhan, your inquiry about the rating of the colleges has already been posted on the website, it's just scattered around...plesase try using the "SEARCH" option; just give yourself time, search around and you'll find your answer quicker than you think. If you would have searched around you would have noticed that there are threads containing information regarding certain colleges in Pakistan for example, KEMU, Shifa, and Nister have there own specific threads. So please look through the threads and you'll find out what people have to say about it.

    Since people have already put their time and energy in answering the same question that you have asked, it would not be fair to just post a question, withoug searching first and wait that someone will answer the question when it has already been posted. Good luck!
