Students claims of incorrectly marked the results of Medical and Dental College Admissions Test (MDCAT 2020) were dismissed.
According to details, Pakistan Medical Commission (PMC) vice-president advocate Ali Raza has dismissed the claims.
While talking to the private news channel PMC vice-president rejected reservations over the recently held MDCAT 2020 exams and its result and maintained that papers were marked accurately. “The students are also complaining that grace marks were not given. These are all presumptions. The papers were correctly marked and 14 grace marks have also been given,” he said.
Note that the students were protesting against the unexpected curriculum in MDCAT and the exclusion of MCQs from the curriculum. Candidates also complained that the name on the resulting certificate was full of errors. Earlier, the students had challenged the MDCAT exam in the Sindh High Court.
Pakistan Medical Commission (PMC) had released updated results of Medical and Dental College Admission Test (MD CAT) for 2020 after correcting computer errors. The PMC says that candidates can visit the PMC website to see the results of their MD CAT 2020.
The PMC has asked the candidates to inform the institution if they still find any error in the results so that the error can be rectified.
A screenshot taken from the PMC website provides further guidance to the candidates.
According to the instructions on the website, candidates who want to report the invalidity of their name and roll number can do so at the following link and if they want to apply for a recount of their numbers, they can do so. You can do this by going to the link.
According to the PMC statement, the regulatory body had received a number of complaints regarding the results released on December 16. Several students complained that many of the students who took the test were mistakenly considered absent.
Some students also complained that their names and roll numbers did not match.
The PMC said the body had to ensure this updated result so that no student was deprived of the correct result. The result of MD CAT is a computer-based result. The commission says any investigation requires physical verification of student admission cards and exam answer sheets to be taken offline and fully verified.
The PMC said that the examination team, therefore, carried out a detailed examination and re-verification of the candidates’ admission cards and examination answer sheets during the last 30 hours.
The PMC statement claimed that less than 2% of the total number of students appearing for the examination had experienced these complications and had lodged complaints with the commission.
On the other hand, PMC Vice President Mohammad Ali Raza said that due to heavy traffic on the website, users may face some delays but he said that the website is fully operational and the candidate will get his result.
Earlier, the PMC had announced that 121,181 students had attended the MD CAT for 2020.
