Third, you will be required to complete the full application through inputting your personal data that is needed. In this step, you will be at the preference giving stage. This means you shall give your personal preference for the colleges you wish to attend in order of priority. The order in which you give your preferences, and the preferences themselves will be final once you submit the form and can not be changed later, so make sure you are certain about your future medical college choices and make an informed decision. Of course, you will not be considered as an applicant for a college that you have not mentioned in the college preference list.
If you are to take the Hafiz-e-Quran exam or if you are a student who has disabilities that you would like to be taken into account, you may also state that and make it clear on paper in the application. For this, you will be required to tick the box that is required on the application and also make sure that you upload the supporting documents for evidence for your case. Huaz-e-Quran and students with disabilities must tick the relevant box in the application and upload required documents. In the near future, students who have selected this option will be timely communicated to the timing, date of exam and the specific venue for their Hifz-e-Quran Test/Medical Board. This information will be communicated to them on their email addresses that they provided to the organization.
After that, you will be required to upload the documents that the application requires. Make sure you obtain these documents as soon as you can to avoid a last minute hassle. Make sure the document you upload does not exceed the size of 2 MBs per document (each).
Next, before you submit the documentation, make sure all the information provided by you is also verified. The reason for double checking is because after you submit the document, you will not be eligible for making any edits at all. So make sure the information provided is accurate and closely proofread.
At this point, you have to finally confirm the information and submit the application. You will receive an email for confirmation on your provided email address. You need to then print the application that has been submitted. Make sure it is the one that says the words “Final Copy” on it.
After that, you will need to head to Bank of Punjab (BOP). Any BOP branch will be okay. You will need to, at the BOP branch, take your application “Final Copy” and your fee challan. The reason for this is to deposit 1000 PKR. This amount is the Admission Processing Fee. Please note, this amount is also not refundable.
