I was busy and was going to reply late until I read your last two sentences. Thank you so much for the appreciation, it's what keeps me going!
I have no idea about PTAP scheme, I'm sorry
Your equivalence is: 630/800 for o level and 265/300 in AL
Total would be: 895/1100= 81.3%

I gave 9 subjects so they'll only calculate 8? I have A*s in bio, physics and ict
A in math, chem, urdu, islamiat
B in FLE and pak studies
So how will it be calculated?
Also I want an admission in a MBBS uni later on, so should I do FSC or continue A levels?

Hello. I want your help guys. I have 4Bs, 2Cs and 2Es in my O level. I just got my O level equivalency which is 65%. And my A level result is 1D and 2Es. I really want to know my equivalency of A level. If I’m dividing my gained marks which is 145 by 300 then multiply it by 100, I get 48.3% in A level. I’m confused is this would be my A level equivalency? Your help would be much appreciated. Tell me what will be my A level or HSSC equivalency. Thanks

Hi, I am a student in uae about to start o level I would like to know if I move to pakistan and attempt o levels there would they still cut marks even if I do FA/Fsc instead of A level or As levels because I want to do medical in pakistan university. Please answer.

@Pardeep no you can get equivalence till an E grade which is equal to 45 marks.
• 115 replies5 threads Junior Member
@Malaika12 yes your equivalence is correct for A level. Your combined equivalence would be around 58%
• 115 replies5 threads Junior Member
@Munazza I'm afraid you can't ever get an official document on the photocopies. You can request your school to get in touch with british council/caie to re-issue the certificates if possible
• 115 replies5 threads Junior Member
@amama1 yes the marks deduction is still there for O level but nothing for FSC. Meaning if you get 8A* in your O level, your OL score would be 720/800 MAXIMUM. But whatever you score in FSC is all yours, no equivalence or scaling

Hi, I wanted to know what category I am in if I gave Maths, Chemistry and Biology in Alevels.
so for my A level equivalence should I tick pre-medical, or Humanities or others?
in the ibcc website, pre medical includes- physics, chem, and bio. And because I don't have Physics, I can't tick on the pre medical box right?
I have gotten my o level equivalence in the science group.
Thankyou.
• 115 replies5 threads Junior Member
@Annie31 you can tick others or pre-medical as well. IBCC is not critical of the groups like that because your combination is still almost pre-medical so lets stick to that. Would show as Pre Medical on your certificate

• 115 replies5 threads Junior Member
@Rizvi20 please search up on youtube "O Level equivlance guide Pakistan" Its a video made by me that would explain everything. It would take 1-2 weeks depending on the mode you choose (normal/urgent)
