    Thanks bro :p
    But what i dont understand if like we have two results of AS and A2 which one do we need to show IBCC?
    btw Isn't it unfair I did get a fair look at the Grade to Number conversion of A levels to standard Pakistan system,I wasn't happy at all I think A levels is very hard as compared to FSC -_-

    Linkin Park ~ I donot know about lahore but here in Karachi universities like Bahria, Habib or some other expensive universities don't ask for equivalency, this why i am a little bit concerned because the university in which i am planning to go ask for equivalency issued from ibcc

    Yes because some universities take your O/A level grades in direct consideration without needing the EC. There are some universities in Lahore that don't ask for EC but majority of uni ask for it.
    Yes then you'll need to get the equivalence then. I have check IBCC's website and nowhere is any condition mentioned for private student. I think you'll fill it and just mention private in the institution part. I am still trying to get info for you and have contacted various friends but none of them knows any private. I'd let you know when someone tells me.

    Welcome. :p
    Yes both AS+A2 otherwise you don't get your equivalence because they need to be sure that you did complete A level.
    Yes it's quite unfair but we can't do anything. Even if you score like 8A* in O level and 3A* in A level you still lose 80+30=110 marks from your equivalence. :/

    Hello Hassan! Please see the attached form at the bottom of original post. I have filled out a sample IBCC form in that.
    You write about Cambridge in third and fourth fields. Refer to the form.pdf attachment in the original post.

    I am a non Muslim who has completed his O level with 8 subjects and now doing A levels. My question is regarding Islamiyat since I have not given it in O level, What other alternatives do i have to be eligible for an equivalency regarding this subject? I was thinking of giving Religious Studies in M/J 2017 bu the thing is that the dates are clashing with my important ALevel subjects.

    My main question is that can I give Ethics exam of the Matric board and be eligble for equivalency with 8 O level subjects and 1 matric subject (if I give ethics)???

    Reply asap

    my personal suggestion would that you should visit Inter board of committee chairman (IBCC) and discuss your matter over there before opting any subject
