    yes, you can apply for SSC(short service commission) and SPSSC(special purpose short service commission). after completion of SSC/SPSSC, you can get extended/perminant commission based on your past performance.

    I have a few questions pertaining to the requirements. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.

    "Qualification:

    FSc Course: (Pre-Medical /Pre-Engg /Computer Sciences) 50% marks in aggregate.

    Graduate Course: (B.Sc)"


    I've lived in the US for most of my secondary eduction so this may sound **** but: FSc is basically the same as a High School GED here in the US, right? And if I have a BSc and I opt for the Graduate course, will I still be able to be a GD:P or will they assign me as an Engineer or such.

    I'm here in the US studying Mech. Engineering, and hoping to complete it before I turn 22. But I'd rather be a GDP within the PAF than an Engineer. So would action should I take.

    I am in the exact same situation! I graduated from high school in the US, and now I am doing mechanical engineering in college. I seem to remember I asked the same question you are asking, but I don't remember which thread my question was in.

    I think we both can apply to be GD pilots as long as we posses BSc degrees from a university in the USA. But what is not clear to me from the PAF official website is whether we will be treated the same as candidates coming straight from a Pakistani high school? I mean to ask...will we have to study the same material they do, or will our degree in engineering exempt us from having to study basic physics that is taught to first/second year cadets?

    Also, will our chances of being considered for flying slots be hurt because we're not a part of the "FSc course"? And does being the son of a serving group captain affect our chances of being selected?

    I downloaded the application form for a GD pilot from the PAF website, and it asks for "marks" in matric, intermediate, BSc. I don't know how that system works, here we have the GPA system. So if I were to fill out that form, what would I put in if I had a high school or college GPA of 3.2? Somebody please help, I really want to know!

    Instead of GPA put grades like A+, A-, and for Matric , Inter use O-levels and A-levels.

    3.2 makes you a B student. I am pretty sure you will get in due to studying in the United States as far as the academic achievement is concerned.

    As-slaam-o-alaikum!
    I live in U.S now wiht my parents and they're the only reason I'm here - because I would rather not live here but in Pakistan. I personally wanted to be a Pilot Officer in PAF, but couple years ago when I had a surgery I was told by my Urologist and others that I may not persue my career as desired. The other obstacle are my eye glasses, which I've been wearing since 3 yrs. old. Although my side is fairly 20-20, and was operated at the age of 5 for my eye-side issues. I want some clearifications on these issues, I would highly appereciate if some would assist me in that regard.
    I've told my parents tht I'll be going back to Pakistan and eventually join PAF with the help of My LORD, after graduation. I'm only 16 yrs old and in 11th grade here in Georgia, U.S. Next year is my graduation - so more than likely I only have 1 more year to go and prepare myself. THe other concern I had was that what would be better for me to take next year since the High School deploma here can be converted and is also taken as FSc in Pakista? I still want to go for Pilot Officer in PAF or Aeronautical Engineer. Eventhough my mother wants me to do Accounting, so I'm keeping track of like four careers at a time. The courese I'm planing on taking next year and the ones I've takin and am involved in are as follows wiht my percent in each subject:
    Courses: Semester 1, Semester 2, Yearly
    English I: 85 85 85
    English II: 80, 82, 81
    Englsih III: 86, 79, 82.5
    English IV:
    Algebra I Honors: 92, 92, 92
    Geometry Honors: 92, 92, 92
    Algerbra II Honors: 79, 88, 83.5
    Adv. Algebra & Trig.: 95, 93, 94
    AP Calculus:
    AP Statistics:

    Biology: 90, 90, 90
    Chemistry Honors: 77, 87, 82
    Physics I Honors: 83, 67, 75
    AP Physics
    U.S History: 75, 75, 75
    World History: 88, 80, 84
    Economics: 92, , 92
    Government: , 88, 88
    Spanish I: 80, 72, 76
    Spanish II: 99, 98, 98.5
    Health: 95, , 95
    Swimming (P.E): 95, 95
    Accounting I: 94, 95, 94.5
    I-Engineering Drw. 95, 95, 95
    Arch. Dr. & Design:
    Prog. & Sys. Mgmt.:
    Accounting II:


    Adv. Alg. Trig. = Advance Algebra and Trigonometry
    I-Engineering Drw. = Intro to Enfgineering Drawing
    Prog. & Sys. Mgmt. = Programming and System Management (Computer)
    The Bold courese I'm taking right now and am not done with them they will end on June First when I would take my final exams - also we take three exams a day.
    The italiacized course that I've scheduled to take next year I may also take one addition course next year than the ones listed and may change my schedule prior to June 8, 07. AP= Advance Placement - these courses are College level courses in High School/secondary school.

    The grading scale, as before some one said that rather than GPA, the letter grade is kind of better to expres. However there's one problem with the letter grade that many schools have their own letter grade scale depending on the percentile. Like in many schools, 100 to 90 % is A, and 80-89 % is B, and so forth... While others have 100 to 93% is A, and from 92 to 85 % is B and so forth. So one could have 80% but it'll be taken as C in some schools but B in others. Therefore letter grade is not really fair. Also I heard that SAT scores are also acceptable there in PAkistan especailly in Aeronautical colleges even the one in PAF Academy accepts SAT scores; but there are two types of SAT(s), one is SAT I and the other is SAT II; SAT I focuses on reasoning and is kind of over-all whereease SAT II is based upon subjects, and you can only select maximum of three subjects at a time. THis is the list of courses for which we may take SAT II: Biology E/M, Chemistry, Physics, Literature, U.S History, World History, Latin, French, German, Mathematics level 1 or 2.
    In PAF, what is the policy for having MYSPACE account, like many colleges here in U.S check the MYSPACE of the student enrolling before admitting them in college or university?
    Someone with the knwoledge and who is 100% sure about the policies and everything please assist me and guide me.
    May GOD bless you all
