question about med school in Pakistan!
Hello everyone. I just graduated highschool in New York, and i'm currently in the process of getting my ibcc evaluation and sending in applications for medical college in Pakistan. One thing im really confused about is when classes start and end. Some places ive seen say december, some say november. Is it different for every school? Can someone please clarify about the academic year and also when there are vacations??
oh and also im curious about the schedule of a regular day. When do classes start and end? How do you guys manage studying and sleeping and relaxing? does anyone want to share their daily schedule? Im pretty new to this so if im doing something wrong someone please tell me (like if im not supposed to ask two differnent questions on the same thread)August 7th, 2012, 03:03 AM #2
We can help you more if you can be a little more specific about which schools you are applying to and plan to attend.

well my first choice was Punjab Medical College in Faisalabad, and then Fatimah Jinnah, then King Edward, then Allama Iqbal. I am hoping to get into one of those along with my sister who applied with me.August 11th, 2012, 12:50 AM #4

Last year the classes started on 9th of December but for students coming through Self finance and PTAP always struggle to get their admissions sorted on time. So many documents are required. Notification from HEC or EAD goes to colleges and to Ministry of Health Punjab, Lahore. They authorise it and send the letters to colleges and to UHS. You also need a letter from UHS.
The best option is to go to these offices and get the required letters yourself otherwise colleges will not admit you. You can start sitting in the classes though if you are in the merit list. At least that way you wouldn't miss your classes. You might want to miss first week anyway to avoid ragging.
You might have to spend few hours each day as there would be tests on the way. These tests also count in final UHS exams as well. there will be 10 days off in December and April. Summer holidays can be any time in July/August but if your attendance is good then you might be able to take few extra days off in hot summer.
There will be sendups in September for First year which you need to pass with at least 33% otherwise they might not send your exam entries for UHS exam.

to be a PTAP applicant, my parents must be foreign nationals as well?
