Number of Open Merit MBBS and BDS seats
UHS Lahore Admission Formula in MBBS and BDS
The merit shall be worked out as per the regulations of Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC), and shall be based on the aggregate percentage of the candidates worked out by adding the marks in the following ratio:
Matriculation (SSC or Equivalent) – 10%
HSSC/F.Sc (Premedical or Equivalent) – 40%
Entrance Test – 50%
The Formula for calculation of merit is as follows:
(Marks obtained in SSC /Equivalent) / Total marks of SSC/Equivalent x 1100 x 0.10 = 10% of SSC/Equivalent
(Marks obtained in HSSC /Equivalent) / Total marks of HSSC/Equivalent x 1100 x 0.40 = 40% of HSSC/Equivalent
(Marks obtained in Entrance Test /SAT II/MCAT) / Total marks of Entrance Test /SAT II/MCAT x 1100 x 0.50 = 50% of Admission Test
10% SSC/Equivalent + 40% HSSC/Equivalent +50% Admission Test = Aggregate
(Aggregate Marks x 100) / 1100 = Aggregate Percentage
Example 1 :
Marks obtained in Matriculation = 992 / 1050
Marks obtained in HSSC/FSc = 980 / 1100
Marks obtained in Entrance Test = 970 / 1100
By applying the aforementioned formula:
992 / 1050 x 1100 x 0.10 = 103.92
980/1100 x 1100 x 0.40 = 392
970/1100 x 1100 x 0.50 = 485
Aggregate Marks = 103.92 + 392 + 485 = 980.92
Example 2 :
Equivalence of O-Level = 812/900
Equivalence of A-Level = 925/1100
SAT II Score = 2100/2400
812/900 x 1100 x 0.10 = 99.24
925/1100 x 1100 x 0.40 = 370
2100/2400 x 1100 x0.50 = 481.25
Aggregate Marks = 99.24 + 370 + 481.25 = 950.49
Aggregate Percentage = 950.49/1100 x 100 = 86.4081
