PMC Extends Admission Date for Medical and Dental College Admission Test

PMC extends admission date for Medical and Dental College Admission Test (MDCAT) to November 6th, after Sindh High Court’s decision.


On account of the Sindh High Court’s decision, Pakistan Medical Commission (PMC) extended the registration date for the Medical and Dental College Admission Test (MDCAT) to November 6th.

The instructions were issued during the hearing of a petition challenging the admission policy adopted by PMC. It was announced last week that aspiring doctors and dentists could apply for MDCAT by November 2 and scheduled the test for November 15. It said the tests will be administered by the National University of Medical Sciences (NUMS).

In the latest hearing, PMC counsel Zeeshan Abdullah submitted a written statement before the bench, contending that the petitioners had not specified which rights were being violated. He added that the petitioners belong to a private college, alleging that they were interfering in matters concerning PMC.

The lawyer added that the commission has not stopped colleges in Sindh from taking additional admission tests and lamented that the provincial government failed to send its representative to inter-provincial committee meetings called to develop a joint syllabus for admission. 

The report added that after hearing arguments from both sides, the high court directed petitioners to submit a reply to PMC’s written statement and ordered PMC counsel to ensure the commission’s website was updated with the new registration deadline.
