As per norms, PMC has chosen to freeze the interim MDCAT results pending the conclusion of a self-governing third-party post-exam study.
The PMC said on Twitter that MDCAT post-exam analysis is now underway, and that the ability to examine and download interim MDCAT results will be unavailable until the post-exam analysis is complete, according to the PMC.
The official MDCAT result will be released on October 9 following the conclusion of the post-exam analysis. MDCAT 2021 test takers will only receive their final score if they took the exam.
This morning, Dr. Faisal Sultan, Prime Minister’s Special Assistant on Health, stated that QAU will undertake a transparent investigation of the MDCAT test to address the concerns of all applicants. QAU will perform the post-exam analysis on a scientific foundation.
Additionally, applicants who tried questions that were off-topic or ambiguous in nature during the MDCAT would be given credit for such attempts.
Due to national protests following the presumption of a month-long exam, the PMC has decided to assign the MDCAT post-exam analysis to QAU.
Organizers of the 2017 MDCAT, Soar Test & Evaluation Platform Limited, were chosen after a long and controversial process by the PMC to conduct the MDCAT.
In spite of this, the PMC shelled out almost Rs. 115 million to SOAR for the computerised MDCAT, which was taken by over 200,000 applicants.
The manner SOAR administered the MDCAT, on the other hand, has sparked an ongoing debate.
It was discovered by candidates that SOAR gave faulty PCs with inadequate internet access for the MDCAT. They asserted that the MDCAT test had questions that were both off-topic and ambiguous.
Several students criticised SOAR for administering the MDCAT between the end of August and the end of September, claiming that this practise favoured some students over others since they had more time to revise.
They’ve done all in their power to get PMC to hold the MDCAT again on one day, pointing to India’s experience with the MDCAT, which included 1.8 million students.
