Overall marks ratio was 72% for the school.

 

Help needed for Sponsorship:-

We have been sponsoring our deserving students who pass out of APS so they can continue their education in another institute.

Our early sponsored student “Rishna Nasir” has cleared her FSC pre-Engineering. Now we are looking for a sponsor who can help her to achieve her dream to be a software Engineer. Rishna Scored 71% marks in FSC and want to pursue 4 years Software Engineering degree from Gift University Gujranwala. If you are interested to sponsor her.
