Thanks for ur reply on the topic sir!
Residing in UK you might know the caliber of ETH & EPFL thats why em trying to find some link out there.... apart from an NEDian em not able to find a Pakistani there... some indian students are there but none in their faculty.
Well as you are doing post doctorate research in U.K so you might have some people around you from such universities.... It would be very kind of you if you find someone from me....
Well I ve also replied on the discussion in detail y em aiming at these universities

Thanks again for ur reply
Well Sir thats exactly what ma teacher at NED told me... that at MS level they dont expect you to do any type of research work & u need not to contact any professor, he also had been a part of the admission process of a british university... but when I applied all these things to ETH I had different results... some days ago I was talking to an indian fellow, he had 90% in his bachelors but even then he was rejected.ETH doesnt ask u for GRE scores but they recommend it... so someone getting 90% should have got admission.... contrary to the result I talked to another Indian fellow... who has justttttt 72% & he was there studying at ETH.He send me his SOP which cleared many things, that they expect you to have some reasearch background even when you r applying for masters & the other thing , find some helpfulllllllllllllll professor there

This is very interesting. I saw a similar story serialized on BBC South Asia website about a Pakistani BBC journalist returning to Pakistan last year.

    Pakistan Economy "Not in a Good Place"? Atif Mian's Gloom Justified?

    Pakistani-American economist Atif Mian has recently analyzed Pakistan's economy in a series of tweets. He has said "Pakistan's economy is not in a good place", adding that the nation's "per capita income has not risen in 3 years (in fact down slightly)". He has particularly mentioned the country's "exaggerated external demand driven by its rentier economy", "flawed energy policy" and "a broken…
