Sindh Ministers Raise Objections Against National MDCAT 2020

Earlier the result of the national MDCAT 2020 was announced for the candidates. After the result declaration, many students protested that the entrance exam was out of the syllabus. Besides the protest, the Health Minister Dr. Azra Pechuho, Education Minister Saeed Ghani, and Information Minister Syed Nasir Hussain Shah have also rejected the result of the test announced by the Pakistan medical commission. 

Statement of Health Minister

The Sindh health minister has said that the federal government has put the educational career of the students at stake. She pointed out that the PMC had previously announced that the entrance exam will be devised by considering the curriculum of all the provincial boards. But there were significant irregularities in the entry test even in the names and roll numbers of the students in the MDCAT result. The curriculum at the provincial level was ignored as 14 questions were unclear in the test. 

Errors in MDCAT 2020 Result

She has also stated that there were no proper arrangements made to conduct the test. Moreover, after the result announcement, many complaints had been submitted by the students due to which the PMC had reissued the result of the entry test. The health minister also added that it is the responsibility of the provinces to hold the entry test for admission to medical and dental colleges. So the federation is violating the rights of all the provinces. 

Sindh Government 

The education minister of Sindh said that the Sindh government had already raised objections against the Pakistan medical commission as it was founded without the agreement of all the provinces. Previously many petitions were filed in the Sindh high court over the legality of the MDCAT 2020 but the PMC had declared the result on 16th December. Saeed Ghani claimed that it should be included under the administrative power of the provincial government to regulate and conduct the medical entry test. Sindh government had conducted various medical entrance exams with complete transparency. Furthermore, it is also notified to the students that the PMC will soon announce the admission schedule for the public and private medical & dental colleges
