A- Level Help!!
I am going in A level in LGS 1-A-1 branch, and they make us take four subjects so that we can get credits and then scholarships in universities, but I want to do medical and hence I will go to medical college after A level, so my question is that do credits help in anyway in this feild?November 18th, 2013, 05:59 PM #2
Yes if you manage to get straight A*s your equivalence would be 990, which is pretty good, otherwise, there's no point of doing Alevels if you want to get admission in Govt. Medical Colleges, because it gets really hard to prepare for the MCAT because it's sylllabus is based on FSc, and it's very hard to cover it all in 3 months. If you can still change then please do FSc, I did Alevels and I seriously regret it cuz if I hadn't I would have made it to a govt. collegeNovember 18th, 2013, 06:03 PM #3
If you're sure that you want to do medical, then drop the fourth subject and study just three, and aim for 3A*
Fourth subject is useless if you want to study medicine in Pakistan from any medical college except Aga Khan, others do not consider the fourth subject at all.November 19th, 2013, 08:51 AM #4
Yes that fourth subject is not considered even when they are making your equivalenceNovember 19th, 2013, 10:17 AM #5
And by the way 3A* in A Levels alone cannot get you an equivalence of 990, for that you must have 8A* in O Levels, subjects should be English, Urdu, Pakistan Studies, Islamiat, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Biology, and A* in A Levels Physics, Chemistry and Biology too.November 19th, 2013, 08:48 PM #6
3A*s is a must in ALevel and 8A*s in O.
And the people are right in saying that MCAT is all FSC based. the thing is that they claim to make a syllabus which includes topics from both Alevel and fsc but in reality, the amount of detail required for one topic is fsc type. and even some of the topics are those not studied in A.
You can get into govt college after doing A but doing FSC is better if you really want to get into govt colleges. It is because this way it will INCREASE your chances of getting admission, as there is no issue of equivalence. e.g in A the max marks you can get is 990. But in fsc, do the same hard work and your scores cross 1010! Therefore increasing your chances!Ibn Sina(The Doctor of Doctors!)His major contribution to medical science was his famous book al-Qanun which remained supreme for SIX CENTURIES and surveyed the entire medical knowledge available from ancient and Muslim sources. Al-Qanun is like this massive medical book even worse than B.D anatomy (as has no pic) but I still hope to give it a read someday.November 19th, 2013, 09:09 PM #7
Btw one more thing about which you should take note is that for getting into a good govt college or private, you definitly need to try to get the best grades in A levels. But do remember the entrance test is equally or i guess more important! In the entrance test fsc people have a huge edge over the a levels ones. Doing fcs will surely give u a upper hand in the entrance test. I know a person with straight a* in o levels and straight a* in a levels, getting an equvalency 990 but still got rejected from top colleges like AKU, DOW! So my point is that yes you have to work very hard in a levels but do remember entrance test is the decider!November 19th, 2013, 09:17 PM #8
