The Pakistan Medical Commission (PMC) on Friday issued a clarification regarding the Medical and Dental College Admission Test (MDCAT) 2020, saying that “no topic” would be included outside the FSc syllabus.
The development comes after students had protested against the PMC’s syllabus, claiming that the medical body had issued “many extra topics”.
“MDCAT Common Syllabus has been created on the singular principle that no topic is outside any of the existing recognized syllabi of FSc in Pakistan. It has been reviewed by a committee of provincial universities and IBCC,” the PMC said in a statement.
- No topic to be included outside FSc syllabus
- Any question outside the syllabus will be removed from “scoring”.
- Students to be given objection form during the examination to record objection to any question.
The PMC said that the question bank for the MDCAT Paper was also based on the singular principle that no question appears from outside the existing recognized syllabi of FSc.
