The government of Khyber Pakhtunkhawa has canceled the ETEA medical entry test 2020. Each year this test is conducted that allows the students to take admission to the medical and dental college of KPK. The ETEA test was scheduled on 18th October 2020 but now the authorities have canceled the test and it seems that they have accepted the decision of PMC to hold the national MDCAT to determine the eligibility criteria of the candidates that are interested to pursue the medical field.
It is pertinent to mention here that according to the notification issued by the Chief Minister, Khyber Pakhtunkhawa the students have to appear only in the national MDCAT. PMC has made NUMS as an authoritative body that will organize the entry test this year. Although the date of the MDCAT has not been announced yet it is expected that the test will be held in the second week of November. As the date of the test is approaching so PMC has advised all the candidates to do the preparation as per the mentioned syllabus. Furthermore, it is also informed to the students that no question will be asked out of the syllabus.
The Sindh government is conducting its own MDCAT in addition to the national MDCAT. However, the students have to appear in the national MDCAT to get enrolled in the public/private sector medical universities. It is mandatory for the candidates to secure at least 60% marks to get admission in the medical or dental college.
