Univerity of Health Sciences UHS Announces the MDCAT Entry Test Schedule 2018
Medical college admission test schedule 2018 has been announced by the admission board of the Punjab government and UHS. According to media reports this year MDCAT entry test will be conducted on 16 of September, 2018. Vice chancellor University of health sciences Maj General (Retired) Prof Dr Muhammad Aslam presided over the meeting of admission board of the Punjab government. Vice chancellors of 18 universities and medical colleges of Punjab participated in the board meeting.
Admission board of the Punjab government decided to take the MCAT entry test for the session 2018-19 on Sunday, 16-09-2018 . Traditionally the MCAT entry test in Punjab was being conducted in the last week of September, but the private medical colleges were taking undue benefit from this. Private medical and dental colleges started the admission before the display of merit list by UHS and many students with higher marks were taking admission in these private colleges due to their uncertain
future and after getting admission in public colleges they were not refunded their fees.
To check such malpractices of private colleges, UHS has decided to take the MDCAT entry test 2018 in the month of September. First merit list for admission in MBBS will be displayed on 0, October 2018. First merit list for BDS will also be announced on 00 October, 2018. MBBS classes will be started from 13 November. BDS classes will be started from 00 December, 2018.

Good News For FSc Pre Medical Students
Some members of board rightly raised the objection in meeting that 40 percent weight-age to FSc pre medical marks is quite unfair as FSc pre medical is full-fledged exams as compare to MDCAT, which is a short MCQ type test of just 150 minutes. Board decided to take up this matter of vital importance with the authorities of PMDC. Admission board of the Punjab government is also considering seriously to declare the Sialkot as the center of MCAT from this year.
