KARACHI: Students who appeared in the Medical and Dental College Admission Test (MDCAT) 2020 have recently filed a fresh petition in the Sindh High Court (SHC) over the problems they faced in the entry test.
During today’s hearing, the lawyer representing the students told the court that the regulatory body Pakistan Medical Commission (PMC) had assured his clients that it would not ask them questions out of the syllabus but the opposite happened.
The lawyer also informed the court that his petitioners had cleared the MDCAT exam.
However, the students’ counsel contended that students’ marks had been mixed up.
“There are multiple irregularities in the result,” alleged students’ lawyer Jibran Nasir. He added that in the result sheet the role number is of another student and the result is of another student.
On the other hand, PMC’s lawyer Zeeshan Abdullah told the court that the PMC has released the MDCAT results. He informed that over 100,000 students took part in the exam out of which 67,000 cleared it.
Upon hearing the arguments, the court directed PMC to submit its reply pertaining to the case and adjourned the hearing till January 4.
