Supreme Court Rejects Request to Postpone MDCAT 2023 Exam

The Sindh High Court (SHC) has dismissed a petition seeking the suspension of the National Medical and Dental College Admission Test (MDCAT) 2023 following allegations of a ‘paper leak,’ as reported by ARY News.
The controversy surrounding the retest of the MDCAT arose due to the circulation of the question paper on social media, prompting concerned students to approach the Sindh High Court for intervention.
In their plea, the students highlighted that this incident marked the second instance of a leaked MDCAT paper, with no one being held accountable for the act.
During the court hearing, the Sindh advocate general informed the SHC bench, headed by the Chief Justice, that while there was an online leak of a guess paper, the actual exam paper remained secure.
The lawyer representing the petitioners emphasized their desire for admissions to medical and dental colleges in the province to be based on merit, citing concerns over the leaked paper affecting fairness.
In response, the SHC Chief Justice inquired about the source of the paper leak, expressing a sentiment towards ensuring that students have the opportunity to enroll in colleges without interference.
Following arguments presented by both parties, the court dismissed the plea, stating that a comprehensive verdict on the matter would be issued at a later time.
Earlier, Health Minister Saad Khalid confirmed the findings of an investigation committee, affirming that the MDCAT 2023 paper had indeed been leaked. The minister further recommended that the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) take charge of overseeing the inquiry.
