    Admission to any medical university in Pakistan is based on merit criteria. Your merit will be calculated in the following way:
    10% O Level Grades
    40% A Level Grades
    50% Entry Test

    (This is the basic criteria for most of the universities, but some may differ)

    Your O level grades are quite excellent, and after converting it to IBCC your percentage for O levels will be approximately 83.88%
    As for admissions after AS Levels, they will not be accepted as far as i know. You must complete A2 before applying to any medical university. Admission based on AS grades will not be granted.
    Aim for As and Bs to get in a good medical university.
    I got 3 A*, 4As and 1B in O Levels and 2 As and a B in A Levels. Currently i am a student of Dow University Of Health Sciences.

    Aoa Unzela,
    I wanted to ask that does DMC and other medical universities in Karachi reduce our (O/A-level students') final merit percentage ( the final Equivalancy %) by 10%?

    IBCC cuts a percentage of your grade (not sure how much, I've heard 10% and 7.5%)
    Once you have your equivalency in hand, that's your final grade, no university will reduce your percentage after that.
