    Unhappy IBCC equivalent certificate for A & O levels

    Salam 2 all
    OK this is regarding IBCC equivalent certificate which i recently got made from Karachi branch of IBCC for A & Olevels My original result is 4 C's in A level while 6 A's in IGCSE. As par IBCC rules my 5 olevels and 3 Alevels grades must b taken in account therefore my total percentage for Pre-medical becomes 77.45 and 852 marks. IBCC didnt not provide separate equivalence certificates/separate marks for each A and O level but It just provided me with 1 equivalence certificate with aggregated marks and total percentage for both A and O levels which is 77.45% but in order to apply in any University(NUST in ma case) I need separate marks for matriculation and FSC (Pre-medical).So, Do I have 2 to calculate these marks on my own with some formula or there is some other procedure or i l have to get da separate certificates made and how can I sort this out.Plz reply ASAP as I dont have time & I cant make the certificates again. #baffled PLZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ some one help me in dis regard ..... thanks#sad
    Hoping 2 get a areply soon , inshallah.... 10x !!!

    I think the equivalence you have got is for FSC and you need to apply separtely for Metric equivalence. On the IBCC form you need to tick the correct equivalence and pay the fee as well. Unversity will want to see equivalence certificate from IBCC not your own calculation.

    can you also post your subjects and marks that IBCC took into consideration to workout your Equivalence percentage, whenever you can easily..
    This'll help me and many others to roughly calculate our percentages and would prepare us for taking the right decisions in advance.. Many thanks
