Pakistan medical commission had announced to consider the elective subjects of FSc for merit calculation. Earlier the meeting was held in the federal education minister and the other members participated to decide about the admission of the public and private medical and dental colleges as the exams could not be conducted on time.

Moreover, it has been declared that the students can appear in the MDCAT exam without taking the intermediate exams. 


Merit Calculation

During the meeting, it had been proposed to consider only the elective subjects of intermediate to determine the merit for the MDCAT. According to the statement issued by the federal education minister, this year the students will appear in the elective subject’s exams and the marks will be awarded to them based on their performance. So by considering this fact the merit should be based on the elective subjects of intermediate.
