SHC orders PMC to extend the registration deadline

Sindh High Court ordered Pakistan Medical Commission to extend the registration deadline for the Medical and Dental College Admission Test (MDCAT) from 2nd November to 6th November.

The instructions were issued during the hearing of a petition opposing the admission policy adopted by PMC. The commission stated that doctors and dentists could apply for MDCAT by 2nd November and scheduled the 15th November exam. It confirmed that the National University of Medical Sciences (NUMS) would conduct the exam.

Before the bench, a written statement was submitted by PMC counsel’s Zeeshan Abdullah, competing that the petitioners had not stated which rights were being violated. He added that the petitioners, claiming that they were intervening in PMC matters, belong to a private college.

Arguing that the petition was based on provocation, Abdullah said that "the admission policy is explained by section 18 of the PMC Act."

The lawyer added that the commission did not prohibit additional admission tests from colleges in Sindh and regretted that the provincial government had not sent its representative to the inter-provincial committee meetings called upon to establish a joint admission syllabus.
