Get admission to Comsats:

As comsats offer more than 100+ degrees and programs. I opted for Electrical engineering. Admission in comsats for engineering courses usually opens once in a year near June – Sept. While nonadmission for non-engineering programs like BBA or psychology opens 2 times a year.

For engineering programs like I opted for Electrical Engineering, you can take admission by giving an entrance test. Comsats accepts NTS Test + comsats also has its own test which is similar to NTS. You can secure admission by taking any of the two tests.

I took only one NTS in I think in June of 2018. My marks on NTS Test were 57. At that time in 2018 merit was low so I got admission but now my merit is increased and the competition is high. My matric marks were 879/1050 (Federal board) while my FSC Marks were 886/110(AJK Board). You can calculate merit by the comsats merit formula.

Many of my friends took only the comsats own entrance and got admission through that. So you can get admission by taking any of the tests.

There is a full area called Hostel City(which you can find on google maps) just opposite COMSATS Islamabad campus where students from out of the city can easily find hostels and flats for rent.
