    ^ not a good idea. I had a similar thought which is now overturned. You will become a second-rate doctors and probably get some boring specalty like internal medicine IF you pass the boards (50% pass rate for IMGs).

    Why not just take the path here. It will, in turn, make you a better doctor in my opinion. You will be well-rounded with social skills, academic skills, etc. Obviously the US has more resources than Pakistan, thus making US a better place to study. I will highly discourage you from going there for I know people (aunts, uncles, friends...) that have gone to study there or came from there and are unable to pass the boards. They are now working as doctor assistants, etc. etc. Some got lucky, but remember pakistan may make you a different person and what you think right now, you make not think at that time.

    ok i am a student in an american high school, the number one high school in the country to be exact. So far I have taken AP bio and I will be taking AP chemistry, physics, and organic chemistry before I graduate.
    As of now my gpa is a 4.0

    My relatives believe that attending medical school in Pakistan and then returning to the US for residency is the way to go.

    Is it a good idea to apply to AKU right after I graduate from high school? What requirements/examinations must I take before I can apply and what test scores and other items do they look at? How does the admissions process work? (im sorry if these questions have been answered before).

    thank you

    Alright, I answered your question before at the other thread.
    AKU is in KARACHI, btw.

    Their SAT 1 requirement is at least a 1250 (CR+M).
    Their SAT 2 requirement is 700+ in Bio, Chem and Physics.

    Good luck!

    Now I have 2 questions:
    1. Does AKU superscore?
    2. Does it matter how many times you take the SAT?

    Hi, soorry to bother but i found this thread hoping some one might reply so here i go. I am currently a high school senior and i really want to get into DIMC. I just wanted to get information. I read that in order to get in, one needs IBCC OR SAT II scores. I got A's and B's in my years of highschool excepts for 1 C in Chemistry(my worst science ;[) and 1 for anatomy. Can I get in with only SAT II scores into DIMC? Please let me know much appreciates.

    Hi! I am new to all this. I was recently notified in this year, that i will be moving, most likely, to Pakistan and will attend a med school there. problem is, i dont have a clue on how the education system woks. I am from NYC. im will not be taking the entry tests, but instead SAT 2(subject tests), and in order to get admitted, i have to score higher than 550, out of 800, on chem, bio and physics subject test. recently i looked into King Edward Medical and immediately made up my mind that it would be my first choice, it was really appealing to me. However, i quickly realized that it was a demanding school. long story short, can you tell me how high my grades have to be in order to get in? my scores are in the high 80s, but i have had honor classes, AP classes and college level science electives in high school. (im finishing up grade 12 right now) as i graduate, i will be graduating with an advanced regents diploma, with mastery in science and a certified medical administarative assistant certificate. please help me. i feel like i am aiming a little too high.
