MDCAT 2020: students’ protests continue in different cities
KARACHI: Students who appeared for the MDCAT TEST 2020 have continued their protests in Islamabad, Karachi, Lahore, Peshawar, Hyderabad and other cities, due to discrepancies in the test and doubtful results.
The applicants have moved the court against the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMC) as they alleged it of generating out of syllabus question paper and marking unreasonable mistakes.
Nonetheless, the Sindh government demanded to conduct an entry test for the local medical and dental colleges itself.
While, the Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) has requested an Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) inquiry and submitted a resolution to the Punjab assembly demanding rechecking of MDCAT papers.
Abdul Hadi, an applicant of the MDCAT Test, said the PMC should make the keys of all A, B, C, and D test patterns along with other keys and paper public, reveal the 14 ambiguous MCQs about which it claims grace marks have been granted, and recheck all papers instead of recounting after making them public.
Furthermore, PMC vice-president claimed that the allegations were false and the input of wrong attendance was due to the technical issue and it had been resolved.
