LHC issues notice to PMC

The Lahore High Court (LHC) issued notices to the Pakistan Medical Council (PMC) over a petition filed by students challenging the results of the Medical and Dental College Admission Tests (MDCAT 2020) on Tuesday.

Atir Mahmood, LHC’s Justice, heard the petition filed by Faisal Masood and all the students who had appeared in the MDCAT 2020. They had called PMC and Pakistan Medical and Dental Council as respondents in the case.

According to the details, the students have challenged the PMC Act’s Section 8 and 13 (c) legality and told the court that MDCAT was held under this Act.

In the petition, the students who appeared in the MDCAT told the court that their exams contained questions that were not included in the syllabus and claimed that the questions were not from that syllabus that they had studied for their FSC exams.

The students appealed to the court to declare the PMC Act’s Section 8 and 13 (c) illegal and order rechecking of the MDCAT exam.

After hearing the arguments, the court ordered PMC to submit its reply by January 11.
