Maryam against medical colleges’ entry test amid current situation
PML-N Vice-President Maryam Nawaz on Thursday questioned the logic of holding the MDCAT (Medical and Dental College Admission Test) on November 29 at a time when all the educational institutions have been closed and exams postponed.
In her tweets, Maryam said 150,000 students were forced to participate in the test organised by PMC (Pakistan Medical Council) and asked what the benefit of causing mental torture to not only them but also their families.
میڈیکل کے طلبہ کو زبردستی کہا جا رہا ہے وہ NMDCAT ٹیسٹ میں 29 نومبر کو appear ہوں۔ یہ ڈیڑھ لاکھ طلبہ نہیں ڈیڑھ لاکھ خاندانوں کو ذہنی اذیت میں مبتلا کیا جا رہا ہے۔ ان کی اور ان کے خاندانوں کی زندگیوں کو خطرے میں ڈالنے کا مقصد؟— Maryam Nawaz Sharif (@MaryamNSharif) November 26, 2020
She asked as if the safety of medical students and their families was not important. “Why the discrimination?” Maryam said.
While all educational institutions are closed and exams are being postponed, MDCAT students are being forced to appear for NMDCAT test by PMC. Isn't safety of medical students& safety of their families not as important? Why the discrimination? Why imperil them & their families?— Maryam Nawaz Sharif (@MaryamNSharif) November 26, 2020
