Pakistan Medical Commission (PMC) issued a clarification regarding MDCAT syllabus. For local students, the commission said MDCAT common syllabus has been created on the singular principal that no topic is outside any of the existing recognized syllabus of FSc in Pakistan. It has been reviewed by a committee of provincial universities and IBCC.
PMC informed that the question bank for the MDCAT paper is also based on the singular principal that no question appears which is outside any of the existing recognized syllabus of FSc in Pakistan. If any question appears in the paper which is outside of any syllabus, it shall be removed from scoring by the Examination Paper Review Committee immediately for all students, it added.
The commission said, students appearing in the MDCAT exam will be provided an objection form at the examination center in which they can record any objection to any question they believe is outside the syllabus of the relevant Board. All objections will be reviewed immediately after completion of the MDCAT exam on November 15, 2020 and any question found to be outside the identified syllabus shall be removed from the scoring.
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, PMC clarified.
