Just wanted to see what you guys have to say..
I gave my Fsc part 1 exams, but I got sick and I scored 378 marks. I always got A-1 grades, but this was a total shock for me. I always had this dream of getting into med school and become a doctor. Even my parents had wanted me to do this. So I decided on repeating Fsc . It was kinda tough because people always have something to say to let you down, and in my case, I had a lot of people to let me down and discourage me. But anyhow I gave my exams. I got 474 in Fsc.. 86%.
then I got some hope, and becoming a doctor was the only thing I had on my mind. then I gave my Fsc part 2 exams. And unfortunately something wrong happened with me and I was hospitalized. My exams didnt go well. And I got 892/1100, around 82% approx.
My Entry tests didnt go well either. I had a chance in private med schools but the merit increased this year a lot as you all know, and now I am left with nothing.
months have passed, and I thought of giving the Entry tests again, just wanted to try my luck once more because I just never got the chance to give my best. I also decided to give my Fsc part 2 exams again because then I would have a better chance.
But then a couple of days ago, I received a mail from Shifa. They are starting a new University, Shifa Tameer-e-Milat University. This university has 2 main courses, DPT and D pharm. And the admission are opened till 31 of Jan. I agree that these two fields arent that bad and have a good scope.
My parents suggested to go for it too, thought they didnt force me to go there.
The problem is that I just cant let go off the thought that I always wanted to become a doctor. Not for a second was I undetermined, that i cannot do this mbbs and that how would I go through the fsc exam again. Infact I had decided i'd give my best this time.
So Trying one more Time?! Or Going to shifa for D pharm/ DPT?!January 2nd, 2013, 07:21 PM #2
If your passion and interest has always been in pursuing a career in medicine, I suggest you keep trying. If it is financially viable, one more year that you spend in the pursuit of your dream is a better path to choose compared to settling for something that you are not very interested in.
Start preparing for the entry tests right now and have a honest self-evaluation about your performance last time and make a plan to address those deficiencies. The secret to doing well on these exams is 50% understanding the subject material, and 50% understanding the way the exam works.
I think DPT and D. Pharm are also excellent fields but if you have always wanted to be a physician, there is no way they can substitute for that.
I wish you nothing but success. Good luck!January 2nd, 2013, 08:06 PM #3
Yes, that is what I always wanted to be indeed.
I just pray Everyone gets what is Better for them..

but then people say why are you wasting 2 years? you can be good at anything you want to, so instead of wasting you time just get into D pharm and prove yourself..January 2nd, 2013, 10:17 PM #4
if it is finacially viable. go for shifa but also repeat . side by side prepare fr entry test. since u r repeater it will take less time and effort frm you as before in studies. . id also suggest that next year you try for federal medical and dental college alog with uhs mcat. since it is under federal government plus getting into it isnt competitive since its newJanuary 3rd, 2013, 12:59 AM #5
I have heard D pharm isnt that easy. I was planning to give my Fsc exams again. So studying all the 6 subjects alone with D Pharm, I dont think it'll work out that well ..
and then My current Fsc marks (892) wont keep me on the safe side. I need to improve them as well because the uhs admission criteria might change as previously it was
30% Entry test.
what if they change it again?! and what if the merit rises more this year?! because after going through all this I have to keep all the pros and cons in front of me.
the problem is either I get into shifa and totally leave the mbbs thing or I start studying for next years Entry test and let this opportunity down..
I dont have any financial problem, the problem is that now I will be lagging 2 years behind my age mates. And though my parents have no problem regarding the whole financial thing, yet somewhere I feel myself guilty of wasting my parents money this way... But then becoming a physician is what I wanted. Thats the dilemma.January 3rd, 2013, 02:23 AM #6

I suggest you should go for BDS if dont want to repeat and waste another year. D Pharm will just be a waste of your talent...... There might still be a chance to get into medicine some where in a private college.January 3rd, 2013, 03:20 AM #7
No, there is no chance in bds either.. This university of shifa opened this year! And its a coincidence that I got to know about about it! I didn't have any prior plans of getting into D pharm. But since this option is in front of me now, so I am giving it a thgought.
I know that BDS is far better as compared to D pharm but I am out I got only 2 options. Either go for next year or take this option...January 3rd, 2013, 12:52 PM #8
sarah your situation is just like mine...i also gave my first year again and my current fsc score is 924...i dont have any option so i am giving mcat this year again..i m also going through a difficult situation...because its too risky to waste 2 years..but i will try my level best..so if you really wants to fullfill your dreams then try one more time..but the final desicion is yours...best of luckJanuary 3rd, 2013, 03:30 PM #9January 4th, 2013, 06:15 PM #10

Dude if u want the best answer then do Istikhara. Its the best way to decide between things that ur not sure of. i always do it whenever I have to decide something big and it always works :-)January 4th, 2013, 06:27 PM #11
Hey!Aadi and sarah we are all on the same path and God knows how many?I my self will take entry test 3rd time but my fsc goes well, so also 2 years for me but believe me it does not matter at all, all is that u have to achieve your destiny.Best of luck and try again.January 4th, 2013, 09:29 PM #12January 4th, 2013, 10:46 PM #13

Thank you all for you suggestionsJanuary 21st, 2013, 05:23 PM #19
even i am going through the same situation but i guess mine is worse then all of you, i could score only 850 in Fsc after improving once but i scored really good in entry test (986) and had a aggregate 83% , i was very hopeful i will get admsn in public coleges atleast in bds but merit went too high this year ... and the worst thing is a board officer said that i cannot improve my fsc again this year , i wonder what should i do now? getting into medical with this score is hope less and the thing is after going through all this i am getting more crazy to get into medical , it feels like i just cant live without studying medicine... i dont want to give up my dream and go for any thing less.... any suggestion guys what should i do??? sincere advice neededJanuary 23rd, 2013, 04:52 PM #20
and are you interested in D pharm or DPT? if you are then you can apply for that incase you dont want your year to be wasted.
but the best option is do istikhara whether repeating is beneficial for you or not. Thats the best advice you can get..

and you mentioned about getting crazier for medicine gradually, for that I'd say again to do istikhara, because I was going through the same feeling. I wanted to get into medicine so bad that I could give up anything for it, but Istikhara makes you feel better and shows whats best for you. If medicine is written in your fate you'll get to it soon and Allah will give you the patience to wait. If medicine is not whats best for you, Then by doing Istikhara Allah will help you endure all this and let go off this feeling eventually. Trust me, it works
