New MDCAT 2020 date

SHC issues notice to PMC

Statesman Report

KARACHI: The Sindh High Court (SHC) on Friday issued a notice to Pakistan Medical Commission (PMC) on the announcement of the date of the Medical and Dental Admission Test (MDCAT 2020).

A two-member bench comprising Justice Muhammad Ali Mazhar and Justice Arshad Hussain Khan heard an application seeking contempt proceedings against the commission for not complying with the high court's decision in a case pertaining to the MDCAT.

On Wednesday the commission had announced that it would conduct MDCAT on November 29 "upon compliance" with the SHC verdict. But petitioner's lawyer Mohammad Jibran Nasir argued that by announcing new date for the test without issuing a syllabus approved by the academic board, PMC had committed contempt of court.
