    I'm afraid, the answer to your question is Yes.
    IBCC takes Only bio chem and phys when making your FSC equivalence and rejects all other grades.

    Hi everyone,
    I am very much impressed by the help that is being provided by people over here in this forum. Hope to get some help myself as well. My problem is that I have don my o levels and now in need of some guidance either to join FSc or continue in the same system and do A level, if I have to join the Govt medical college later on? I have heard that the penalty of 20% to A level has reduced or finished because of new letter grade of A* being introduced by the GCE. Is it true? or what is the new equivalence rule? Secondly, is there anyone who can comment on the difficulty level for conversion from o levels to FSc as compared to A levels? All help shall be highly appreciated! Thanks

    Hey guys I have a few questions.

    Got my A levels result in August. 2 A*s in Physics and Biology and an A in chemistry.

    I just got my equivalence from IBCC and they gave 945/1100 which is 85.9.
    Now the thing is that if they are considering A* at 90% and A at 85% then shouldn't my equivalence marks be a bit more?

    Because if I had 3 As it still would have been 85% right? (I have straight 8 As in O Levels and its equivalence is 85%)

    Would appreciate if someone can clarify or quote IBCC's formula.

    P.S I asked the guy at IBCC the same questions but the a**hole gave no answer.

    Hi military2727

    If you have passed your a-levels ann o-levels from Paksitan then IBCC have given you correct marks. They use 8 o-levels and 3 a-levels and for A it is 85% and for A* it is 90 as you know. You have 9 A and 2 A* which means your marks would be 9*85 + 2*90 = 945.

    If you would have passed your exams from abroad then they would have taken into account 5 0-levels and 3 A-levels and calculated your marks out of 800 and then converted them from 1100.

    Your marks in that case would be ((6*85 + 2*90)/800) * 1100 = 962.5. Your %age in that case would be 87.5%.

    Foerign students dont have to have Pakistan Studies, Islamiyat and Urdu so they only use 5 O-levels or GCSEs.

    Hope it will clarify some of your concerns.

    regards

    Hi Ali

    Here are the IBCC Rules for O-level and A-level.

    Requirements for ?O? and ?A? Level Students:

    1. The statement of result of ?O? and ?A? levels is valid upto maximum six months only. After Six months, original certificate is required and an application without the ?O? level / ?A? level certificate will not be entertained.
    2. If a candidate passes ?O? level from abroad and appears for ?A? level from Pakistan or vice versa, he/she has to pass Urdu, Islamiyat and Pakistan Studies at SSC or ?O? level for obtaining Equivalence Certificate.
    3. Copy of the Equivalence Certificate of ?O? level issued by IBCC and original of ?O? and ?A? level certificates must be provided for obtaining Equivalence Certificate of ?A? level.
    4. The candidate must have passed seven subjects before June 2006 & Eight subjects from June 2006 & onward GCE O-Level, if he appears from Pakistan (including English, Mathematics, Urdu, Islamiyat and Pakistan Studies) and five subjects, if he appears from abroad.

    So you can provide a proof of passing your O-levels from abroad. You can also write a covering letter to them explaining these rules and your circumstances. I think they should then only take in to account the 5 O-levels other than Urdu, Islamiyat and Pakistan Studies I guess you might have got low marks in these three subjects and are trying to exclude them for [FONT='Times New Roman','serif']equivalence. I think they should only count other 5s if they follow their rules but they can say that as you have passed those three as well so we might as well count them in.[/FONT]

    Hi powerto7

    For FSc students UHS look at the results for the first year and in the same way for A-Level they would look at AS results to allow you to sit in the entry test.

    If you dont get your A2 results before the entry test then UHS will look at your AS results. I suggest if you are going to do full A-Level in one year then you should pass your all AS exams in Januray and get AS certificate from the relevent exam board. You can also show a proof that you are taking your remaining exams in June. They will then let you sit in the entry test.

    Thanks for the reply saeed.
    But the problem is that my school does not allow me to sit in the january exams (i have asked them)
    I have heard that if you dont have an AS or A level results by the time of the entrance tests you can provide them with a provisional record certificate from your schools that have your expected grades and then they will allow you to sit in the entrance tests...
    Can you confirm this??
    Thanks....

    It is very strage that your school doesn't allow January exams. It is a lot easier to get some of the exams out of the way in January. Here in UK they all students take half of their exams in January and other half in June both in AS and A2.

    In UK Universities give you a conditional offer for admissions on the predicted grades. UHS should do the same. You might have taken most of your A-Level exams anyway by then so you can show your entries for all exams to them as well.

    As I said before if you can provide a letter from your college that you are sitting in your full A2 exams, your entires and also your predicted grades from your college then UHS should let you sit in the entry test.

    Hi

    I ahve jsut found this on the UHS entry test application form for 2010-2011:

    DOCUMENTS ATTACHED (Please Tick)

    Matric (SSC or Equivalent) Certificate

    Certificate from his/her college stating that he/she will secure at-least 65% marks in F.Sc.

    Photocopy of F.Sc (Pre-Medial) Part-I or Equivalent certificate (where applicable) attested by the head of your institution.


    Photocopy of F.Sc (Pre-Medial) or Equivalent certificate (where applicable) attested by the head of your institution.

    ........................
    .......................

    So you might get away with only second document in the list but if they ask for anyone of the bottom two then you will struggle to get in.
