Each year there are thousands of students in the major of medical which get failed or are not even able to join MBBS, their childhood passion field for which they worked all they way from Nursery or so called one class to till HSSC in Pakistan.
While doing a survey in our National Medical college of Lahore, we were on some worst reasons behind the successful students who struggle in that part of their journey till MBBS admission, the points about which they were saying were MDCAT Syllabus, Preparation and some mock exams which they intended to attempt but they can’t!
Now let me guide you a little bit about the difference between MCAT and MDCAT. If we would talk about internationally or foreign countries so they call it MCAT but in Pakistan it used to be called MCAT earlier as well but not now! It is called MDCAT and it is conducted by PMC which stands for Pakistan Medical Commission.
In total there are total 200 questions which are from subjects Biology, Chemistry, Physics and English. Don’t do me wrong, the subjects which are mentioned their questionaries will be from the classes which you have studied. Not out of the course, of course!
This MDCAT test which is also known as National Medical and Dental College Admission Test is started in back 1998 and till yet 2021 it is still on the way and of course it is going to be continued for many more years, Insha Allah.
This test is pre-requisite of MBBS and BDS degree programs, so if there is a student who wants to enroll in any of those or related programs so he has to appear in the MDCAT exam and also clear it successfully in order to be enrolled and point to be noted here that there is not negative marking in MDCAT.
It is all about out today short answer to the question “What is the difference between MCAT and MDCAT” and I hope we tried to convey the information in a very smooth way and also we shared some more related points to MDCAT.
