The Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC) has discovered that some questions in this year’s Medical and Dental Colleges Admission Test (MDCAT) were not part of the syllabus. As a result, the release of the MDCAT results has been halted by the Peshawar High Court. The President of PMDC, Dr Rizwan Taj, has directed all public universities to review their question papers and address any discrepancies. He has also called for serious action against those involved in unfair practices during the examination. The MDCAT was successfully completed with approximately 187,000 students appearing for the test. In a post-examination analysis meeting, President PMDC discussed the examination process and the fairness of the test. During the meeting, the Vice Chancellors of various conducting universities shared details and concerns about the MDCAT paper. Some universities reported cases of cheating and impersonation, and investigations are underway. Results will be delayed until the inquiry findings are submitted. Finally, the Peshawar High Court has stopped the Khyber Medical University and the Educational Testing and Evaluation Authority from publishing the MDCAT results due to allegations of irregularities in the test.
