PMC cancels MDCAT 2020

The MDCAT 2020 examinations have been cancelled as the Sindh High Court (SHC) barred Pakistan Medical Commission (PMC) from holding an entry test for medical colleges on November 15 after the Centre and provinces developed differences over the matter.

The court ordered the PMC to establish an academic board and examination authority and finalise the syllabus for the Medical and Dental College Admission Test before asking the candidates to appear for the test.

In a short verdict into the matter released today, the provincial court ordered the PMC to cancel the entry test for medical colleges scheduled for November 15 and directed to establish an academic board and authority within 15 days.

The academic board should prepare a uniform syllabus within 10 days, the court ruled while observing that the syllabus prepared by the PMC created confusion among the students.
