How do you guys send your transcripts(Intermediate and Matric results in my case) to multiple US or other overseas universities?
Do they require original marksheets(can't see why they would) , scanned transcripts or just the officially attested photocopies? I was thinking about studying in Europe or America in a few years so just thought I should know about everything well in advance.

Almost all the universities require clear scanned copies of the original document. Very few ask you to post the photocopies of the original along the scanned documents.

undergraduate studies

Salam everyone. My question is regarding the undergraduate studies in Germany. I want to know that how many A level subjects are required in order to study in a German university? I am almost about to get done with my As level and I plan to go abroad after A2 level. My target country is Germany. My subjects are physics, maths and comp science. Looking forward for a [FONT=arial, sans-serif-light, sans-serif]bachelor in comp-science. I heard that 4 A level subjects are required for an admission to a German [/FONT] university. To what extent this is true? Need some help here.

Regards.

Easy with the caps bro.
Ok I'm here to help you out:

You need 4 A levels subjects, that's correct, but 1 must be a language subject, it can be AS level only too. It should be English or Urdu, studying German in A levels does not count.

I encourage you to study and do your best in A levels. In Germany universities follow the NC system, If a university course has NC then you need to match their requirements, but for Computer Science, most universities in Germany offer it as a non-NC course, meaning you can apply even if you get shit grades (please not even that shit, they should still be something), and still get admission. However, your first semester exams will be hard so you need to really give your best in those, because thats how they remove the shit people who aint studying.

I gave 3 A level subjects and AS level English Langauge.

You need to learn German to apply for admission, you cannot apply without proof. Now because you did your A levels, You will apply directly to a German Uni, there will be no Studentenkolleg (foundation courses) for you. Your proof will be the TestDaf exam (German's IELTS), you need to study till atleast B2 level, which is offered by Goethe Institut in Karachi (https://www.goethe.de/ins/pk/en/index.html?wt_sc=karachi)

There are 6 levels of German, A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2. Goethe have their own exams, but you don't need to give them, Only inter students need to give the Goethe exams up till B1, but A level students need to study till B2/C1 and give their TestDaf exam.

To look for universities, daad.de will help you. I will be applying to Leipzig but there are many pakistanis all over Germany.

Well for Masters, like Maroof told you, You'll be needing to give the GMAT/GRE and You need to give the IELTS exam and get more than 6.5
Even though it's usually not mentioned, You're required to have studied Deutsch A1 and have given the exam for it, but my personal advice is, don't give the A1 exam, infact study till B1 (or B2), and give the A2 exam. Each course is approx. 8 weeks (except B2 being 16 weeks)

I can't help you with scholarships, that's what Maroof will help you with. However, to show that you can financially take care of yourself, for the visa you need to show atleast 8000 euros (approx. Rs. 875,000) PER YEAR in your bank account or in your Deutsch Bank account.

This Uni-assist page will tell you all the documents you need to apply with (get them attested from Notary Public infront of Passport Office near Cooperative Market or Civic Center)

Reason to learn the language till B1 is so you can get comfortable speaking with German. You will NOT survive if you can't speak German.


Other than this there's not much to Masters applicants.. Tried my best to make this as detailed as I could :p

I'd like to ask about scholarship, if you can gather some information for me and tell me there requirements.

    In that case, I should probably avoid the Mi Note 10 Lite, its older than the other two. Barely any good phones in 60K that isn't samsung. A71 is a good deal too but that is a year old as well.

    That's a good point. Realme 7 Pro has a AMOLED display, which is why its attractive though I've no idea about Realmes software support unlike Xiaomi.
    Yeah, these phones often have attractive features and seem like great value (most of them are) upfront, but if you want continued software updates so the phone lasts long, most of them don't live up to that promise.

    easier way to narrow down is buying based on software support. If the phones aren't confirmed to get Android updates, I personally think they should be avoided.
