PMC National Mdcat Syllabus 2022 and Passing Percentage

In order to standardize 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 opportunities 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 not only the content taught in the premedical years but to note the topics missing from various syllabi. The MDCAT syllabus will not favor 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. In order to achieve this, the syllabi documents from the following organizations were reviewed (in alphabetical order):

  • Balochistan Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education
  • Directorate of Curriculum and Teacher Education Khyber Pakhtunkhwa
  • Federal Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education Islamabad
  • MCAT syllabus (AAMC)
  • Punjab Boards Committee of Chairmen
  • Sindh Boards Committee of Chairmen
  • University of Cambridge A-level syllabus
