    Foreign Student Chances


    I am a foreign student from Canada. I have recieved the IBCC Equivalence of 870 marks. I just moved to Pakistan, a year ago. Unfortunately, I encountered Dengue and was unable to take my SAT II's. Instead, I sat for the MCAT. As you are all aware, MCAT is not designed for foreign students and is not based on the foreign curriculum. Unfortunately, I was only able to score 30%, I was heartbroken. I was wondering how is the merit process for foreign students calculated.Also, what would the chances be of me being accepted into the following institutions be:

    *King Edward
    *Agha Khan
    *Sharif Medical College

    dont be heartbroken, this happens to pretty much every student coming from Canada, you still have a good academic score and after you will do Sat 2, you will be able to apply to every college in pakistan but this will happen after one year, i guess#sad . But you could still apply on overseas seats, which i know are really competitive and its hard to get in.
    So for merit process i gues it is is 40-50 %- MCAT test and rest is the academic result for high school and on this calculated marks you are then evaluated for medical collages. by the way which subjects you took in high school.
