The decision came a day after the newly-constituted council issued the revised schedule for the MDCAT across the country.

Announcing the decision at a press conference on Wednesday, Federal Minister for National Health Services (NHS) Abdul Qadir Patel said electricity and internet connections remained severed in several parts of the country, preventing a large number of students to register themselves on the relevant online portal for the test.


MDCAT passing criteria lowered to 55% 

Abdul Qadir Patel said the minimum required percentage to apply for admissions to MBBS has also been decreased from 65 to 55 per cent marks and the requirements for BDS admission have been decreased from 55 to 45 per cent marks to discourage the tendency of getting admissions abroad.


He said the council has also decided to review National Licensing Examination (NLE) for Pakistani graduates. However, this exam would continue for foreigners.
