Complete Guideline for Karachi University Admissions 2014-2015.
Karachi University Admissions 2015-2016 will also be conducted by NTS as per last year.Forms will be available from November 17.
Therefore, I’m going to let you know the old process of admission, it might be possible this process will be followed this year too or new policies will be introduced at the time of announcing admissions, don’t take these details as final pattern, it is just for guidance.
First of all Have a look to the Prospectus (2013-2014).
Each and Everything is already mentioned in Prospectus (you can download prospectus from Official Website of Karachi University), kindly go through the Prospectus First, before asking/posting any query that is already mentioned in Prospectus.
There are some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS) about Karachi University Admissions.
1-When admissions will be announced?
Answer: UOK will announce admissions in Nov 2014. (All Bachelors & Masters – Morning),
While Evening Admissions will be announced after Morning admissions.
2-Calculation of Inter Percentage and Test?
Answer: 60% Test and 40% Inter percentage.
(Example: You’ve got 70 marks in aptitude test, and has got 60% in inter, then this formula will be followed.
60% x 70 = 42
40% x 60 = 24
Total: 42+24 = 66
now this 66 will be your percentage on which you’ll get admission in aptitude test based departments.
NOTE: This criterion was followed in admissions 2013-2014, it might be possible, new criteria will be introduced this year.
3-What is Open Merit?
Answer: These are departments in which you’ll get admission on your Inter percentage.
You just have to fill the form and you’ll get admission if that department’s closing percentage resides within your Inter percentage.
4-What is Closing Percentage?
Answer: These are percentages on which a particular department is closed.
(Example: 500 students applied for English, but this departs have only 100 seats.
Let suppose, the topper applied has 70%, University of Karachi will start count down from 70% and will stop when 100 seats are full. Suppose 100 seats are full at 65%, then 65 will be the closing percentage of this department).
