UHS vice-chancellor Prof Javed Akram said that Medical and Dental Colleges Admission Test MDCAT might be conducted online if the coronavirus situation does not get any better. He said that MDCAT 2020 might be conducted at the end of September. MDCAT has an important role in medical admissions.
UHS VC also said that we cannot cancel MDCAT as FSc exams are already cancelled. He also said that the procedure of the entry test might be changed and we can conduct it through online technology. But the final decision in this regard is not made yet. However, the weightage of the entry test might be increased due to the cancellation of 2nd year exams.
Prof Javed Akram also said that all medical universities in the province are in favor of conducting MDCAT. We will present our suggestions to the Government and will also request the Governor to call a meeting of all the stakeholders in this regard.
