CIP Calculator

We designed the CIP Calculator in order to help the candidates calculate their aggregate before applying to Punjab Residency Program / Central Induction Policy. Candidates can compare their aggregates with the last merit of a particular speciality in the last induction and make particular choices while applying for Residency.

  1. CIP Calculator: MBBS: Pakistani Graduates (June / July 2024 Induction)
  2. CIP Calculator: BDS: Pakistani Graduates (June / July 2024 Induction)
  3. CIP Calculator: MBBS/BDS: Foreign Graduates (June / July 2024 Induction)
