To standardise the admission process, the Pakistan Medical Commission (PMC) has decided to conduct a uniform admission test for all medical and dental institutions in Pakistan. This will ensure that all candidates are given equal opportunity to perform. This was a difficult task as the candidates appearing in this examination come from diverse backgrounds and different levels of education.

One of the greatest challenges was to devise a common syllabus that encompasses the content taught in the premedical years and note the topics missing from various syllabi. Thus, the MDCAT syllabus will not favour any group or place another to any disadvantage.

The National Medical and Dental Academic Board of the PMC was directed to complete the above-mentioned task. To achieve this, the syllabi documents from the following organizations were reviewed (in alphabetical order):

  1. Balochistan Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education
  2. Directorate of Curriculum and Teacher Education Khyber Pakhtunkhwa
  3. Federal Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education Islamabad
  4. MCAT syllabus (AAMC)
  5. Punjab Boards Committee of Chairmen
  6. Sindh Boards Committee of Chairmen
  7. University of Cambridge A level syllabus

MDCAT  is designed to evaluate the problem solving,  critical thinking,  and knowledge of natural, behavioural, and social sciences concepts and principles of a candidate required to study medicine.  MDCAT will be a   standardized multiple-choice computer-based examination.  MDCAT  will also test the aspirants’  other abilities like intuitive and critical thinking skills.
