MDCAT Paper Pattern
There are 210 MCQs in an MDCAT. You will get 3 hours and 30 minutes to complete this test. There will be no negative markings as per the current policy of the PMDC. If there are any changes in the policy, we will let you know as soon as possible on our blog. Anyhow, 3 hours and 30 minutes for 210 MCQs mean that you will have one minute for an MCQ each. This is a huge boost from the previous policy where a student would hardly get 40 seconds for solving one question. No negative marking is also a great improvement from the previous policy. This lifts a lot of pressure from you and lets you focus on your exam.
The general pattern is as follows:
|Number of MCQs|
Here is an overview of the MDCAT paper pattern:
- The exam is 210 minutes long and consists of 210 multiple-choice questions.
- The biology section covers topics in physiology, biochemistry, and microbiology, among others.
- The chemistry section covers topics in inorganic and organic chemistry.
- The physics section covers topics in classical and modern physics.
- The English section tests your reading comprehension and language skills.
Something new that has been included in the national syllabus is the Logical reasoning questions. The aim of this section is to evaluate your critical thinking, creativity, logical reasoning, IQ, etc. You will be given a certain passage to read and then you will have to answer after thinking critically about the scenario.
Critical thinking or logical reasoning is an important skill. It enables you to understand the problems you face and you will be able to communicate yourself better. This skill is important in the medical field as you will have to always assess the situation regarding the patient. Each patient may have a different set of symptoms and without the ability to think logically, you will not be able to handle most of the situations.
It is important to note that the MDCAT exam is designed to test your knowledge and skills in these subjects, and it is not necessary to have any prior medical or dental training to do well on the exam. It is recommended that you review the relevant course material and practice with sample questions to prepare for the test.

National MDCAT Policy
Before a single National MDCAT, each province would have its own entrance tests for medical colleges. This had the problem of a lack of uniformity in the quality of entrance tests. Thus, there was a need for a single MDCAT for the entire nation. But this created a problem with the syllabus. If you want a single MDCAT for everyone in the country, there should also be a single syllabus. But, this was also not as simple as it sounded. In Punjab alone, students of Federal board and A-levels students would face problems because they had studied different sbllabus for college.
Thus, it was important to create a syllabus that had contents from every syllabus from each province. For this purpose, common content in each province was included, but the exceptions were also included. Now a uniform syllabus was created and this was able to solve the problems stated above. Now, no one can say that any specific group of students is being favored or anything has been asked out of this syllabus.
To create this syllabus, NMDA and PMDC reviewed the syllabuses of different boards in the country to come up with a syllabus that had topics from each syllabus.
Why MDCAT is needed?
MDCAT is essential to filter students that have the necessary critical thinking ability, problem-solving skills, and basic knowledge about medical sciences, and other social and behavioral sciences that are required to study advanced medicine and surgery taught in medical schools. Thus, MDCAT is an essential step in selecting candidates for Medical universities. After successfully passing this National MDCAT, you are eligible to apply to more than 150 universities across Pakistan.
In this article, we discussed the paper pattern and the syllabus of the National MDCAT. You can download the syllabus from our website for free. No doubt, MDCAT is an important step in your medical career. If you want to know more about this topic, you can comment with your queries. We will be glad to cover them in future articles. This uniform syllabus is a good step in the right direction. Hopefully, we will see the fruits of it in the future.
