No topic outside FSc syllabus in MDCAT, says PMC

The Pakistan Medical Commission (PMC) has issued a clarification regarding the Medical and Dental College Admission Test (MDCAT) 2020, saying no topic would be included in the test from outside the FSc syllabus.

The development comes after students protested against the PMC’s syllabus, claiming the medical body had issued “many extra topics”.

“MDCAT Common Syllabus has been created on the singular principal 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.

It saud the question bank for the MDCAT paper was also based on the singular principal that no question appears from outside the existing recognised syllabi of FSc.

If any question appears in the paper which is outside the existing syllabus, it shall be removed from scoring by the examination paper review committee immediately for all students.

The medical body said students appearing in the MDCAT will be provided an objection form at the examination center. The form can be used to record any objection for any question students believe has been taken included from outside the syllabus.

“All objections being communicated regarding any topics at this time are also being constantly reviewed by the relevant committee finalizing the question bank for the paper,” the PMC added.
