    Hello. Thanks a lot for the elaborate guide. I just had one confusion. Is there any way to get the equivalence for both O-Level and A-Level at the same same time? As I need both the for the HEC attestation.

    If the answer to that is yes, then how do I go about it? I mean should I fill two separate forms but how do I indicate that I need both?

    Yes, you would need to fill two separate forms.
    You just tell them that you need both equivalences at once and it won't be a problem as long as you provide all the supporting documents of O and A Level.
    I hope that answers your question.

    Since a lot of you would be having their o/a level results next month, I have made a video guide about the procedure of O/A Level equivalence. The link is at the top of my first post, please check it out, thank you!

    I have a question. Is the overseas equivalence same as the Pakistani one? Why the difference of subjects? A friend of mine is doing IGCSE from Malaysia, if he gets overseas equivalence, he won't need to take Pakistan Studies and Islamiat, right? but I think the IBCC equivalence does require 8 compulsory subjects (including the 3 elective ones), am I right?

    Hey! Nice to hear from you after a long time.
    There's no such thing as overseas equivalence. If you're appearing for any exam other than FSC/Matric, you MUST have the IBCC equivalence.
    Since your friend is giving IGCSE from Malaysia, he only needs Maths, English language and 3 more electives. Nothing more or less.
    8 is only required if you're giving your exams from Pakistan. Baseless rule but that's how it is

    Guys I got D's in my A-Levels which include Physics, Chemistry, Biology.
    And I got C in Maths.
    However, I secured 1400 on my SAT.
    Are there any chances I get good scholarship to study in USA?
    If yes then can you recommend me some universities according to my scores?

    What do I write in: "Title of Certificate/Diploma in the Language of the Country where obtained __________"?
    It has me confused.

    As well as my previous unanswered question. Does it matter if you give a Certificate OR a Marksheet of your CIE O-level results?

    Please check the video at the top of the thread, I have mentioned that link.
    In that you mention FSC/Matric or A Level/ O Level

    The links saying equivalence is no longer needed is kind of true but only for the case of Romana (you must read article to understand). One of my colleagues contacted IBCC and they told that it's just an annonucement, no paperwork done so far. Also universities would still need the equivalence so please don't get all relaxed. Unless your concerned university updates on its website that an equivalence isn't required, it's mandatory!
