PMA demands the MDCAT results cancelled

The Pakistan Medical Association (PMA) has sharply criticized the Pakistan Medical Commission (PMC) and demanded that it re-conduct the MDCAT examinations on the same day. Cancel

PMA Secretary General Dr Qaiser Sajjad said on Monday that the PMC was formed overnight and was operating without consultation.

Responding to the results announced by the commission on Saturday, he said many students had failed the exams.

The PMA has demanded cancellation of MDCAT results and re-examination should be held on the same day.

He emphasized that the PMC – formerly known as the PMDC – was a globally recognized organization known as the Registration Body.

According to Dr Sajjad, doctors will face challenges if each province has its own registration authority.

“The PMC is working without consulting anyone,” the official repeated.

Following the conclusion of the post-examination analysis on completion of the examination, the PMC National Medical Authority (NMA) last week published the final results of MDCAT 2021.

Addressing the press conference, PMC President Dr. Arshad Taqi had said that a record number of 194,133 students appeared for the MDCAT exam from August 30, 2021 to October 2, 2021.

Sharing the details of the final result, he said that out of 194,133 students, 68,680 students passed the exam, resulting in a national pass percentage of 35.4%.
