Registered students are eligible for Nov 29 exam, PMC

Students who have enrolled before 6 November for the Medical and Dental College Admission Test (MDCAT) will be permitted to sit for the test now scheduled for 29 November.

A Pakistan Medical Commission (PMC) statement states that the students who have enrolled and have been given admit cards/roll numbers slip ahead of the 15 November test will be eligible for the next exam to sit.

PMC is complying with a Sindh High Court judgment issued in the MDCAT case on 11 November. "All applicants who had applied to the PMC and their application forms were accepted before the cut-off date shall be allowed to attend the MDCAT with their same registration and admit cards if any issued to them," reads the verdict.

Before ordering the candidates to appear for the test, the high court had canceled the exam and ordered PMC to form an academic board and assessment authority and finalize the syllabus for the MDCAT.

SHC emphasized that the "MDCAT cannot be conducted" because the National Medical & Dental Academic Board was not established under the Pakistan Medical Commission Act, 2020.

Sindh High Court also opposed the PMC's decision on the released syllabus, in which it claimed that students could mark any questions they felt were outside the syllabus, saying that it "created uncertainty and gross confusion in the minds of all applicants" and calling it "injustice."
