The Pakistan Medical Commission (PMC) released a clarification on the Medical and Dental Colleges Admission Test (MDCAT) 2021 results controversy.

The PMC claimed that it sent out an e-mail before the scheduled time with the result certificates of students who appeared for their MDCAT 2021 due to “a system error”.

The final MDCAT 2021 results were scheduled to be publicised after 1pm today on PMC’s website.


But this morning, many students reported that they had received an e-mail from PMC’s noreply e-mail with their MDCAT 2021 result certificate attached, the PMC explained in a tweet.

The commission explained that the final result was actually to be announced later in the afternoon after the last examination scheduled today in the morning for Covid-affected students.


The results, it said, were accurate but the commission apologised for its “inadvertent error as it has resulted in concern amongst the students”.
According to the PMC, an option was provided to download, print, or e-mail the result certificates to students on the PMC website to check their final result.

“Unfortunately due to an error, the system generated all the result certificates and e-mailed them to students early this morning automatically.”
The final score in all the result certificates received by students are correct and have been checked, the PMC said, clarifying that although in a small number of certificates e-mailed to students in the morning there are errors in subject marks, the total score is correct.

This only happened due to the results being generated by the system automatically, PMC said, asking students to ignore these errors.
Students can recheck and verify their final results once PMC uploads the live results online.
