PMC to conduct special MDCAT 2020 exam for the COVID positive students. The exam is scheduled to be held on the 13th of December.
As per the shared details, the PMC said “the Medical & Dental Council has approved the holding of a Special MDCAT Examination for COVID-19 positive students.”
The PMC, in the statement, said that in the scenario that a registered student contacts coronavirus between November 15, 2020, and November 29, 2020, the candidate shall be permitted to sit in the special examination which will take place in December 13, 2020.
The PMC said that only those students who have tested positive for coronavirus will upload and submit their tests on the website — nts.org.pk/PMC.
“All applicants who are COVID-19 positive shall immediately be deferred to the Special MDCAT Examination to be held on 13th December 2020. The link for uploading the test result will remain operational from 26th November 2020 to 29th November 2020,” the statement said.
The PMC gave the assurance that the special MDCAT exam would be conducted with the same structure and standard as the MDCAT examination being conducted on 29th November 2020.
The PMC said that those students who are referred to the special MDCAT examination could use the roll number already assigned to them.
However, they should print fresh roll number slips specifying the centers for their special MDCAT examination.
“NTS shall be notifying the deferred applicants where they can download their slips via SMS,” it said.
