Admission in Dr. A. Q. Khan College is based strictly on open merit for boys and girls upon no discrimination. There are no reserved seats. Admissions are announced on annual basis with selection criteria determined by a written test followed by a series of interviews. The college also admits students during the academic year dependent upon vacancy.

While we admit students in all year groups, the most preferable is kindergarten or year eleven. Our secondary education (SSC and HSSC) is affiliated with the Federal Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (FBISE). Following English as medium of instruction, we follow the Cambridge/Oxford University-outlined curriculum for primary and middle schools while FBISE-mandated courses are followed at upper levels.
