can anyone please tell me that if i am from the U.K and i am applying to pakistan on a foreign seat do i have to get the IBCC conversion??
If i do , then the form is really complicated , so any suggestions on how to fill it??July 7th, 2013, 10:44 PM #2
yes you have to get your grades converted to FSC. For the proof of school accreditation, visit your high school, they should have the necessary forms you need. then send your equivalence to some relative in pak so they can hand it inJuly 8th, 2013, 02:31 PM #3
Thanks for the reply .So do i need the documents from the school that i did my GCSE's at and from the school that i did my a-levels . Because i studied both of them at 2 different schoolsJuly 8th, 2013, 06:09 PM #4
May i know, how long does it take to get the ibcc equivalent certificate?July 8th, 2013, 06:10 PM #5July 8th, 2013, 06:14 PM #6
If you look on the form it says about 7 days and only if your case isn't complicated. But i have heard alot about them that sometimes they say that documents are missing , in which some cases they probably are right. But i have also heard that IBCC take so long that people are unable to apply for that year. So if you are amongst the unfortunate ones , then it may be a very long time before they get back to youJuly 8th, 2013, 07:55 PM #7
Ok so in case i have done indian cbse education for my high school, what fall in my percentage will i have most probably? also do i just need to submit my marksheets for 10th and 12th? is that enough for them? and since i am going to apply now-in July, for the equivalence certificate, will i at any chance get it before September starts?
thanks in advance!July 8th, 2013, 08:30 PM #8
To be very honest , i am actually not to sure on your percentage. If you visit the IBCC website it should tell you about the documents you need. I am pretty much in a similar boat to you as i am also a little confused on this whole procedure and i am finding it a little complicated. So i can't actually tell you when you will get your equivalence scores back. It varies with everyone but i don't see why you shouldn't get them as long as your documents are all fine .
On a similar note , on the IBCC application form , it says i have to submit original documents as well as copies.I am from the UK and to do that , it is a huge huge risk. So do i have to submit originals or is there another way around it ???????July 8th, 2013, 10:14 PM #9
Thanks for your reply! yes i think you need to submit the original, atleast thats what the form says and what i have read. but you are right that we will run a total risk if we submit our originals. but to get the attestation on the originals, i am afraid that there is no other way for it. i imagine you must have already attested your originals from the UK embassy and pakistan embassy. so dont be afraid and send them to your relatives and ask them submit it into the appropriate office. for complete information, check this link out, it may clarify your doubts.

No problem . Glad i could help . I haven't done anything as yet, as i am not sure how to do it to be very honest. I don't even actually know how to get my documents attested from the uk or pak embassy so that is abit worrying. Thanks for the link , i had seen it before. It really puts me off from applying to Pak , when i see all these issues and problems.July 8th, 2013, 11:59 PM #11
yes its really tough to apply for pak but you can do the attestations. you just need to go to the two embassies with your 10th and 12th certificate and marksheets along with your leaving certificate and ask them to attest these. they will attest at the back of each of the sheets and will charge you with certain amount for each paper you attest from them. thats all with your attestation from the embassies. and then you can apply for equivalence. by the way the procedure is really long and the most annoying part is that overseas students face many difficulties no matter how high our percentages in 12th are. but i prefer you joining in UK itself, there are such great universities there. i have a dream of studying there! why are you choosing to go to pak?July 9th, 2013, 12:19 AM #12
I think the whole equivilance process can be sped up if you have a reliant middle man relating information from you to the IBCC. For me, I have this relative who teaches some military academy in Islamabad, so he knows a lot about the educational process over there, and we are having him talk to the IBCC on what we need, and such. I am also trying to get EVERY document they requested before we send anything, so that the IBCC don't have any excuse to delay anything.
My dad said there is a note republic, or something along those lines, which attests documents. We are going to have it done from there, he says that part is quite simple. The trouble I am facing is obtaining my school's certificate of accredidation. I went to the head Registar, and she had no idea what that was, nor did she have the slightest clue of what the "syllabus conferring to the certificate" was. Have you gotten that from your school yet, and if you did, how did you get it, from whom did you get it from?July 9th, 2013, 12:20 AM #13July 9th, 2013, 12:28 AM #14
I understand completely, my whole purpose of going to Pakistan is not just the education, as I could receive the same education here. I feel as if I am taking the harder route, as medical studies in Pakistan are very difficult. I could easily attend the University in America where I have received acceptance. However, I would have later regreted not having spent these years in Pakistan. America is a nice country, but I feel it is no subsitute for my home land, where my history is, my family and my culture. It is completely worth going to Pakistan in my eyes, not only for education, but also for the experience I will obtain, and for the different lifestyle that I will live over there.July 9th, 2013, 01:50 AM #15
yes its really true! inspite of us having lived abroad, we wish to go back to our own country to study and even i believe that choosing a path filled with difficulties will bear good fruits. suiting and adjusting in the new ambience could be a challenge. as a result even i tend to go to pak for mbbs and i just hope i get adm this year itself. i wish we all get adm whereever we are seeking to.

you are really lucky to have a person in there to help you. i guess everything you need for ibcc can be obtained from your school itself. well i am just going to give my attested original 10th and 12th certificates and marksheets along with the migration and leaving certificate. i guess that would be enough for ibcc since that is what they told me to get.July 14th, 2013, 08:49 AM #16
This should be reiterated for all to see, imo. People shouldn't question others' intentions. You have an opinion and thats all it is, an opinion. In many cases you should let people do what they believe is best for themselves instead of questioning their motives. ThanksJuly 14th, 2013, 05:25 PM #17August 30th, 2013, 03:43 AM #18

I've tried calling many medical colleges and I find it really strange that none of them actually know what A levels are! "just show us the certificate IBBC gives you" is what they say. I don't know if it's because no A levels student goes for medical in pakistan or they were dumb. I'm seriously lost and confused as to what do I do now? I'm thinking of doing A Levels at home since schools are really expensive but I don't know whether it's acceptable or not and more importantly what exactly do I need to have done? Chemistry, Biology and physics at Both AS and A2 (and English just at AS)? Or do I have the option of doing one or more of the sciences in AS only and not in A2 (dropping off)??? Pleease help me before I go insane and PLEASE for God's sake tell me everything you know about this topic and especially if you're an A levels student who's preparing to go to medical university!!!

Like in one medical college in london you need to have done Chemistry and/or Biology at A or AS level. If only one is offered, the other should be offered at GCSE (or Dual Science) ... Those are their requirements!!! I've tried calling many medical colleges and I find it really strange that none of them actually know what A levels are! "just show us the certificate IBBC gives you" is what they say. I don't know if it's because no A levels student goes for medical in pakistan or they were dumb.
