Dear you have 72% marks simply appreciable.
First, I just want to clear that YOUR CHANCE OF SUCCESS IN ANY FIELD IS SELDOM, IF YOU CHOOSE IT ON THE BASE OF SCOPE INSTEAD OF YOUR INTEREST. It’s up to you to create and maintain your scope. There are many MBBS & D-pharm degree holders having an earnings figures
just around 25,000PKR, So, Be Smart and follow your interest event it’s related to Arts. Well there are some fields which conventionally fulfill your criteria, Plant Breeding & Genetics- tremendous scope and income, it’s an Agricultural field. For this may be you’ll have to join BS (HONS) in agriculture with major PBG, depending on the Institute. If you like chemistry then you should keep the Environmental Sciences and Food Science & Technology in your list. All of the above are hot topics of this century. Human Nutrition and Psychology are also good as the both will match to your charm of MBBS. DVM, Animal Breeding and Genetics, Animal Nutrition are also suggested. I hope, it’d be helpful for you. I repeat, JUST GO FOR YOUR INTEREST And Build the Scope. Best wishes for your career

Umm-e- Abdullah
Food & sciences is very good field for premedical student. You should apply for it on the top of list then you can mention bio technology, Bio chemistry and chemistry in K.U form. I hope you are aware of fact that your most preferred option should be placed on number one in the form and so on.

According to me paramedical fields are more preferred but if she is interested in bio medical and bio technology then I’ll recommend biotechnology as it has more scope and more vacancies around. Regards

You have two choices, if you want to become medical Doctor, repeat your intermediate (which ever year you scored less percentage).
Or study in private medical colleges (if you can afford it). Last option is to study at University of Karachi. Subjects such as Microbiology, Physiology etc

Saima Tabassum

If you are not sure about getting admission in MBBS or Pharm-D, Other possible professions in Medical field are Dentistry, Physio Therapy, Micro Biology and Radiology. You have not mentioned that if you still want to establish a career in the same field or wish to change the subjects. Some Medical Colleges or Hospitals ( like JINNAH HOSPITAL KARACHI) offers degree course in Physio Therapy. For Micro Biology and Radiology, you Need to have B.Sc degree as minimum qualification for diploma courses and M.Sc or M. Pharm degree to be a clinical Microbiologist. Try to explore all possible opportunities available and then decide which one to choose, please don’t get confuse and make sure you are not wasting much time to reach to a conclusion. Wish you good luck for a bright and successful future.

  1. Masha Allah you have done F.Sc. and I congratulate you for passing this certificate. No matter how much marks or percentage you have got, but at least you did is successfully. That’s one achievement. Suppose if you had not passed this exam, would you be able to see any career further? So my dear student please be brave! See what you have done and ignore what you haven’t done till now. Yes you should learn from the mistakes you have done in past but always keep your aims high and don’t lose hope ever.
  2. Pre-medical is a beginning of a very vast field of knowledge. You can apply in

Bioinformatics , Biotechnology, Biochemistry, Microbiology, Medical Laboratory Technology, Paramedic Training (Operation Theater management, First Aid Paramedics etc.), Nursing, Psychology, Public Health Management, Pharmaceutical Marketing Management,

If you ever get online then see the advertisements published in Pakistani newspapers like Jang, Dawn, Daily Times and read all University admission programs carefully. You will definitely find even more field of your related studies even more than what I have mentioned above.

  1. While filling the forms for any University application
  • Be relaxed
  • Be careful about hand writing (if its hand-written form), spellings and punctuation
  • Be careful about addresses, specific identification numbers (e.g. CNIC, Program ids etc.)
  • Be careful about fee structuring entries (if your form has separate fee submission detail for each semester, module, course.)
  • Be careful to complete all entries to the best of you knowledge and references.
  • Review all the entries filled and do not leave any space un-filled (Use short words like N/A if any entry does not apply to your criterion)
  • Attach all the required documents
  • Meet the deadline of form submission.
  • Always keep the form submission receipt in your record and insist the institute to give you one at the time of submission.
  • Be patient for the admission procedure duration and pray for your success of selection.

Please also see the Psychometric tests mentioned on CCP-Pakistan portal website to assess Skills and expertise. These help you select your career field suiting your abilities.

What career to choose after class 12th science? A question that runs through every students mind once the board exams are over. Parents too continue to have sleepless nights even after the board exams are over because they worry about the career options for their children. Science is a vast field and different career options are available for students to choose from. However, without the proper guidance it becomes difficult for students as well as for parents to select the best option for a bright career.

The term science is very vast and mainly has two forms: Pure Science and Applied Science. Further again we can divide science in two more sub categories as: Math’s category and Biology category. Medical and engineering are two most popular and most sought career after class 12th science in Pakistan.

For those who have an interest in Biology and are looking forward to a career in Medical line can opt for courses like:

* MBBS or Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery

* BDS (Bachelor of Dental surgery)

* BAMS or Bachelor of Ayurveda medicine and surgery,

* Physician,

* Optometrists,

* Dental Surgeon,

* Pharmacists,

* Nursing and a lot of others

For those who have an inclination towards Mathematics, Physics and chemistry can get into engineering line. Many different choices are available in this field too like:

* Mechanical

* Civil

* Aeronautical

* Bio-Medical, Information Technology

* Marine

* Electronics and telecommunication and many other.

Medical and engineering is by far the great career option with a very bright future. However, it is not that science has only these two career option with a great future. Below are the list of different courses which can be done apart from medical and engineering.

As of now we can say that sky is the limit for different study options post class 12th. Now you have to find out where your interest lies. I wish you very best of luck….!!! With best regards

Hasnain Malik

Go for B.Sc in Bio Chemistry , Bi Technology, BSc Lab Technology for your future career.

Nida Shoaib

You should opt for Bio Engineering or do specialization in some science subject.

 Anjum Naz

So you can pursue career in psychology or chemistry, both have nice scope.

Good luck
