The MDCAT will be retaken in KPK on November 26th, according to the announcement. The Khyber Medical University (KMU) would be in charge of rescheduling the exam.
The university stated in its statement that it has requested assistance from the Federal Investigation Agency and police to ensure transparency.
According to KMU, 46,658 students have registered for the exam, which is scheduled to take place next month.
The provincial government had previously proposed November 19 for retaking the exam, but it has now been pushed back by a week. The KP government had also written to the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC) in this regard.
The KP government stated in its letter that KMU will not receive fees from already registered candidates. It should be noted that the Peshawar High Court (PHC) ordered that the test be re-conducted within six weeks.
The MDCAT in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa was marred by controversy after dozens of students were caught cheating with a Bluetooth device. The exam was canceled, and a retake was scheduled.
The KMU took strict action last week against students who were caught cheating during the exam. According to details, 219 students have been barred from taking the MDCAT for the next two years.
