The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa provincial cabinet decided that the Medical and Dental College Admission Test (MDCAT) will be conducted once again. The decision was communicated to the Peshawar High Court.
A two-member bench, led by Justice Abdul Shakoor, presided over the proceedings in the Peshawar High Court.
The Attorney General presented the government’s decision to hold the MDCAT test again.
The provincial cabinet reached a consensus that the MDCAT test should be reorganized within the next eight weeks.
This decision comes in response to concerns and issues related to the previous test administration.
The previous exam, which took place on September 10, saw over 180,000 candidates participating, but reports of rampant cheating, particularly in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP), have raised grave concerns.
Further details and arrangements for the retest will be announced in due course.
