MDCAT 2024 Tentative Schedule Announced

MDCAT 2024 Tentative Schedule

The Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC) has announced that the Medical and Dental College Admission Test (MDCAT) 2024 will be conducted at the end of August or the beginning of September. The announcement was made during an online E-Ketchehry session, where officials also disclosed that the syllabus for this year’s test is currently under review and will be released soon.

PMDC officials confirmed that the admitting universities will remain the same as last year, ensuring continuity and familiarity for candidates. These universities include:

– Bolan University of Medical and Health Sciences (BUMHS) Quetta (Balochistan)
– Jinnah Sindh Medical University (JSMU) Karachi (Sindh)
– Khyber Medical University (KMU) Peshawar (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa)
– University of Health Sciences (UHS) Lahore (Punjab)
– Azad Jammu and Kashmir venues under SZABMU
– International venues under SZABMU
– Federal and Gilgit venues under SZABMU

The MDCAT will be a paper-based exam conducted simultaneously at all designated centers and venues.

For online registration, candidates will need to enter their own Computerized National Identity Card (CNIC) number. One significant update for this year is that MDCAT results will now be valid for three years. However, an equivalency formula will be applied each year to determine merit, ensuring a fair comparison of results across different admission cycles.

The validity of the MDCAT results aligns with section 17 of the PM&DC Act 2022. This provision means that the MDCAT result of one province will be valid nationwide for three years from the examination date. Notably, results from MDCAT 2022 are no longer valid for admissions in the 2023 session, as previously indicated on the individual result certificates.

This update from PMDC aims to streamline the admission process for medical and dental colleges, providing candidates with a clear timeline and maintaining consistency in the selection process across the country. Further details and the updated syllabus are expected to be released shortly, offering candidates ample time to prepare for the upcoming examination.
