    Hey even I am applying on overseas seats. You can apply for both and will get into the one which gets you in the higher priority uni according to your form.

    I am using a friend's account that's why. I was born and raised in Dubai and my parents and siblings will continue living there. I will live in the hostel.
    So your family has moved with you to pakistan?

    Idk if they are good enough but they are crazy expensive. You see, i am middle class and to pay 125000dhs per year is out of question.
    So how are you eligible for overseas seats? Dual nationality?

    Thanks. I am from England, where English is the first language and all, so I can speak English fluently.
    Speaking in urdu was a trouble for me when I came here, but after 10 years, I've gotten the hang of it
    I can understand punjabi just fine, but I can't speak it properly. And I totally mess up the punjabi accent. I sound like such an angrez
