The Interview Situation

Congratulations to all those who cleared the AKU Aptitude Test!
Now comes Step #2; The Dreaded AKU Interview that has so many myths associated with it.

Last night my friends and I were discussing about this year's test, interview, those who cleared the test and stuff when one of them said a truly quotable quote:
"Know what, Lubaina, the AKU Blog that you guys run is sort of counter-productive when it comes to the interview prep because a lot of people are reading your interview and if all of them answer the way you answered then their interview won't stand out."

And, my friend was absolutely right. So, before any further ado here's lesson #1 for the AKU Interview:
Show them how you STAND OUT.
Show them how your spark is DIFFERENT from the rest.
Show them that you DESERVE to come to AKU.
After all, out of all the applicants ONLY 100 are selected and if you want that to be you than you have to show them how you're unique. Everybody debates and everybody plays football but not everybody can make debating and swimming seem as if they are more than just talking out loud and splashing in the water.

The interviews put up at this blog are just to give the readers an idea about how it goes.

For further tips about the AKU interview, read our previous posts:
- AKU Interview Guidelines
- Sohaib's AKU Interview
- Lubaina's First AKU Interview (Just realised how I never got around to writing about my second interview)
- Mayera Tufail's AKU Interview


Feel free to ask any questions or sort out any queries that are bothering you.
This will be it for now.
Cheers!

For the 2014 Applicants


Hey there prospective AKU-ites/AKU-ians (Yeah, we don't have a specific 'name' for the AKU students)

This blog aims to help out all those who wish to apply to AKU's Medical College. If you're confused about how to prepare for the AKU test or the AKU admission procedure then you have come to the right place.

Getting to the point, the dates for this year have been updated.
For now just focus on clearing the aptitude test and the rest comes later.

First comes your application form, then your aptitude test followed by interview and Form II only if the aptitude test is cleared.

In the aptitude test one has to get a percentage higher then the passing percentage which changes every year. For 2013, the passing percentage for Paper 1 was 55% and for Paper 2 was 66%.

Here is the a brief outline of the AKU aptitude test pattern:
