    Ziauddin Medical University Admissions 2016 - Has Anyone Received A Call Yet?

    Hello! I joined this forum recently.

    I wanted to know if anyone so far has received a call offering admission from Ziauddin yet, or if Ziauddin has started calling students at all in the first place?
    I noticed that they've even put up the merit lists for Pharm. D and BS ALT on their website even though the interviews of the candidates who had applied for MBBS had happened first.
    I applied and gave my interview on 6th September but haven't received a call so far even though it's been so long. Getting really anxious here. :/
    If anyone knows I would really appreciate a response.

    I'm not sure tbh. I've been mostly told that Ziauddin is better. It's in the top 10 ranking as well.

    Really? But it had Aga Khan and DOW in the top 3 and I believe that's justified. If we're doubtful about the whole rating then the rating of these 2 universities becomes questionable as well, doesn't it?

    It would be really helpful is more of the people who view this post could respond, especially those who have info, please! Even those who have just given the interview but have not been called.

    Hi! I gave my interview in August, but I'm no longer in Pakistan. Thing is, the number that they called me on for my interview is no longer in use, and I'm not sure if they contact candidates via email or not because all the correspondence I've had till the interview was via phone, and I haven't heard from them since. I'm an overseas/foreign candidate too, so I'm just wondering, will they try contacting me on an international number or via email, if the need to do so arises?

    I haven't heard from anyone ever being contacted through email by ZU yet. If you have provided them with your international number then they might try reaching you through it, though I'm not sure. I think you should contact them and let them know of your status. I believe you can also ask them if you've made it to their merit list or not.

    They called me to offer admission in bio-medical engineering (twice) when I didn't even write it in my form. I applied for MBBS. I've been checking their website almost everyday now and I've noticed that whenever they start calling people for a admission in a certain field they update their website with things like "(Inset field name) admission in process. Check for details" or something like that. So did anyone get a call for MBBS. If not, then don't worry they haven't started calling people for MBBS yet. If they did I'm sure they would've written the "admissions in process" thing for MBBS on their site. (I hope I'm right )

    Hey Guys,
    I'm thinking of applying to Ziauddin next year.
    Ill be applying through the foreign seat. Do they accept SAT II instead of their local test? I checked their website but there was nothing there so I was abit confused? Also now that you guys have mentioned it, what about Bahria? Do they accept SAT II instead of their local test?
    Thanks in advance lads!!

    I have ZU's prospectus 2016 and all that was mentioned there was that they give admission according to the candidates score in entry test and interview. If you fail the interview and/or entry test, you won't be eligible anymore for admission in any field offered by the university.
    As for Bahria, I have no clue since I didn't apply there. ZU is better since they even have their own hospital which is excellent (personal experience).
    Bahria's test is always conducted by NTS which I'm sure you would know is a governmently funded testing association. I don't think that the government will except anything other than it's own. I hope my answer helped.

    The classes for MBBS have long since started. I don't know if they're still calling people for MBBS.

    How do you know?! Do you go there as well? Or someone you know? I've been told time and again (by a professor there) that the classes will commence later on. And that admissions are still ( going to be) in process. (there goes my last hope.) :/

    Also , if the classes have started for MBBS then why haven't they posted the merit list?
