Addressing an orientation seminar on Medical Colleges Admission Test here at Al-Hamra Arts Council on Friday, University of Health Sciences Vice Chancellor Prof Malik Hussain Mubbashar said that there would be a single question paper consisting of 220 objective type questions. The paper is divided into four sections namely Physics (44 questions), Chemistry (58 questions), English (30 questions) and Biology (88 questions). The duration of the test will be 150 minutes and it will start at 9am and conclude at 11:30am. Mubbashar further said that after the test, candidates would be asked to answer an aptitude test and fill the feedback forms, for which extra 30 minutes would be given to them. He said that because aptitude testing was being introduced for the first time in medical entrance test, there would be no marks assigned to it this year. However, from next year, some weightage would be given to aptitude testing in the entrance test score. He said that candidates who had secured at least 60 per cent marks in FSc (Pre Medical) or equivalent examination were eligible to apply for entrance test. Those awaiting result, should provide a Hope Certificate issued by the principal of their respective institution clearly stating that the candidate was expected to secure at least 60 per cent marks in their FSc or equivalent examination. Students having domicile of any district of Punjab, Islamabad, Azad Jammu and Kashmir, and Gilgit-Baltistan will be eligible to take the test. Mubbashar also informed that there would be no fee for medical entrance test. Entrance test kits would be available free of cost at UHS and other public sector medical and dental colleges of the province from August 20. Last date for receipt of application will be September 7. Once a candidate has submitted his/her application, the duty staff will issue roll number and admittance card on the spot. The VC said that candidates would be allowed to choose the city from where they wish to appear in the test. However, centre once allotted will not change subsequently, he added. He also warned that there would be negative marking in the test. For each wrong answer one mark would be deducted from the total score. Each correct answer would carry 5 marks. UHS VC further said that UHS would continue with the Self Scoring System introduced by the university in 2009. According to the regulations of Pakistan Medical and Dental Council, the merit of a candidate would be worked out by adding the marks of matriculation, intermediate and entrance test in the ratio of 10:40:50 respectively, he concluded.
