Do they test you for drugs without telling you during medical examinations ? Specifically in Pakistan ? 

They will test you for drugs AND you will know they are testing you for drugs.

 

They will also ask you about your drug history to which you have to be completely honest about.

They're not going to lie to you about what they are testing you for if you ask them specifically about it...why would lie and/or omit that information?

 

I don't know the specifics of the tests that they run in medical (I thought it was just for syphilis...??) but prepare for a question about your history of drug use AT LEAST.

Hello everyone, thank you for responding, 
Yes they asked me about my drug history which i responded to honestly, and in the end i asked them what am i being tested for ? and they told me that the blood test was for syphilis and the urine one was for gonorrhea,  i was just wondering because of the drug history question and whether if they do it secretly , they cant be allowed to do that can they ?

But I specifically asked them what am i being tested for and they said gonorrhea and syphilis, so when i read somewhere on the internet that they sometimes do it without telling you, thats why i thought of posting this question here

Last question do they give you a copy of the result before sealing the packet for the embassy, or atleast tell you whether you are okay and passed the medical, or they dont tell you anything at all and keep you in suspense until the interview

At least in my husband's case, they didn't tell us a damn thing! I'm sure we could have asked at the interview when they open the packet, but we were both already so nervous / anxious about the interview it wasn't really on our priority list. So unless this is something that varies from country to country, no, they will not tell you anything. 

 

Edit: They will not tell you anything at any point. Neither before the interview nor after, not throughout the whole AOS process either (for a K1). Just wanted to clarify.
