Create a valid account with your original CNIC/B-Form and email.
Tip: You should have a professionally named email by now. Having a proper email instead of something like [email protected] will go a long way.

STEP 2: Complete the application form and submit

3.jpgTip: Always read the instruction given on the right side of the application.In case of any errors in the admission form after submission, contact [email protected]. Phone no. 0938-281026 Ext: 2301, 2354, 2342, 2530

STEP 3: Payment to HBL


TIP: Always make the payment to the bank details given on the admissions website and the amount as written on the bank challan. For safe practices, we have omitted giving out the bank details here, and you should be skeptical of the bank details from any 3rd party as well. Always keep a photocopy of every monetary transaction you make.

TIP: By experience, the GIK test is more oriented to test core concepts. Math and Physics questions will be multiple step problems due to which the weightage for each question is of 3 points. The test integrates concepts of mathematics and physics into the same section.  Practice hard and find smart ways to attempt the questions to save yourself time during the test.
