    * Since you have O/A levels, you will need equivalence. This takes time. In Pakistan, everything takes time. leave a six month gap. The institution name is IBCC. The Karachi office is complete garbage, get it done from Islamabad, or via your local consulate (not sure if its done this way anymore).
    - Most Med colleges give you until the end of 1st year to provide this.
    * Depending on if you can provide a Pakistani Domicile (for yourself and you father) as well as a few other Pak documents, you can give the exam on a 'local seat', along with a TON of students. Competition is very tough.
    * Each institution has its own fate of entrance exam. these dates change each year. Currently, all colleges in Karachi have released their entrance exam forms. They have variable Due dates, typically by the middle of this month (sept 2011), Entrance exams will be held in the end of this month (Sept 2011). The dates of each institution vary so as to not clash with each other.
    - Please note, each institution has its own form, with its own exam fee, submission fee, due date, and exam date.
    * Give all Entrance exams, Government Uni's are hard to get into but cheaper, with a higher lvl of intelligence and competitiveness (exception, DIMC. Everyone is a retard after the second batch there). Almost all have English speaking teachers, the senior staff have a great base of knowledge, with horrible accents.
    * Major drawback of living in Karachi... The extremely turbulent daily life. Never know when a riot is going to break out. Its getting very difficult to live normally.
