As a result of the mistakes identified, the Pakistan Medical Commission (PMC) decided to grant grace marks to applicants who took the Medical and Dental College Admission Test (MDCAT) on Tuesday.

According to PMC President Dr. Noshad Ahmad Shaikh, the commission’s meeting examined candidate complaints and decided to award grace marks for incorrect as well as out-of-course questions.

Vice-chancellors of all the participating universities have received the instructions from the commission.

In a week, the commission will make the full MDCAT results public.
