    Advice On UHS Applied Universities

    Well, I'm a bit of nervous wreck because of this admission stress. I's so worried I won't get accepted. My aggregate is 82% . I'm applying on the dual citizen seat and I just need assurance or advice. I don't know what to do. Like, in my high school I graduated with an honors degree but after conversion my 91% in matric turned into a 79%. My 88% in fsc turned into an 80%. I got 2010/2400 on my SAT II. I don't find this fair. The thing is, in my school, it's really tough to even get these marks. I was in top 10 for 3 years. I would highly appreciate any advice anybody has to offer.

    Thank you so much. I really hope so. The list comes out soon and I just pray that I don't end up going far away from Lahore.

    Hey are you applying to the privates? I have an aggregate of 83.7 with the mcat and know govt will be pretty impossible in Lahore because I don't want to go far away from Lahore either. I repeated this year and last year I had an aggregate of 86.76 with sat 2 and cmh Lahore rejected me. I was so upset. But don't worry, something always always works out for you. Do apply to top private medical colleges like Shalamar, FMH and CMH. Also, shifa if you can go to islamabad but maybe it's admissions have closed. Do look into it. Cmh and shalamar are pretty amazing if you get into them. And for shalamar your aggregate is pretty neat! Also for fmh. Look up privates on this forum if you're confused regarding them. Best of luck to you! :blush:

    The thing is I'm applying on the dual or foreign seats. If I apply to private universities, I'll have a huge fees to pay. If I even get accepted on foreign seat, I won't be able to go. I did the mcat but my score was really bad. I applied to cmh on local seat since I'm a dual citizen and also tried the shifa test. The test didn't work out either. I'm giving the bahria university test as well. I didn't try for shalamar. I think the time for that ended. But the thing is, if I get accepted in a place other than Lahore, I will go. I do not want to repeat a year.

    You have an 82% aggregate with SAT II or the MCAT?

    Well try LMDC, they'll probably accept you on a foreign seat.

    Shalamar is private. All privates have their admissions open right now I suggest you go and fill the application forms asap if you can. Last year for dual national foreign seat for govt the merit closed around 83. This year it is predicted it will go higher. Don't take chances and if you can afford private do go. On local seat. For cmh the merit is very high on local seat with sat 2. Believe me I have been through it last year. It sucks. Didnt you try for fmdc? ohh im so sorry shifa didnt work out

    The thing is, I'm hoping to get accepted into government but idk at this point. I applied to shifa on foreign seat as well. I'm giving the test for bahria university too. I applied to lmdc on foreign seat but no reply yet. I won't go though if I got in on a foreign seat. It's too expensive. Didn't try shalamar yet. I'll see to it. This stress has me sick honestly. I applied to fmh, they asked for more documents so I'm assuming they're considering me but idk. Why is the fees so high for us like yes they can charge us more but this high is too much.

    Hey don't panic that much. I can totally feel your pain because I have been there and still am. But worrying does nothing for you, trust me. Just prayy. Also, apply on local seats. LMDC isn't that good tbvh so apply on a local seat you fall on their merit. Shalamar is amazing I am very sure you can get in on a local seat IA. I know. 18-25 lakhs for foreign seats is morbid. I hate the idea of even 7-8 lakhs per year.

    LMDC is second only to CMH and Shalamar for MBBS. Could even arguably be considered above CMH due to a better clinical exposure.

    SAT II
    I am in exactly the same situation as you but my merit with sat is 81 ish and I got 2010 in sat too and I visited fmh the guys said there is no way I can get in as my merit with MCAT is too low
    I would suggest you try Sharif medical college on raiwand road they said that last year they had a closing merit of 60% in bds
    And I am more interested in bds as I know I have more chances in bds
    And btw if something comes up please please inform me too, I have been in quite a bit of stress myself lately.
    And I agree that uhs is being a real ******* towards overseas Pakis I can't even apply in a private uni because of my low marks in MCAT and the unis won't accept my sat scores just because uhs said soo

    Yes I did. And they did. Maybe they're telling everyone the merit for the foreign seat. The local seat so did not close its merit on 82 because all my friends with lower 80's didn't get it. But on foreign seat they did.

    With cmh Lahore no one can say anything. But with cmh multan it's merit is lower. I think there are other places besides cmh that can make you a good doctor too. So don't worry

    With my aggregate of 81 with sat and 66 with MCAT I doubt it but I am pretty sure the guy said it was 79 for bds local students last year and for MBBS i am not sure
