NAWABSHAH: Almost 2,000 candidates appeared in the pre-entry test held for various seats in the medical and dental colleges of Sindh here on Sunday.
The Medical and Dental College Admission Test ( MDCAT) was conducted by the National Testing Service at five centres in Nawabshah, including Government Girls College, Government Girls High School Court Road, Government Boys Sachal College and others.
A total of 1,961 candidates, including male and female, appeared in the test for 6,000 seats of MBBS, BDS and others in various medical and dental colleges.
The test was earlier postponed on the orders of Sindh High Court (SHC) in October after social activist and lawyer Jibran Nasir filed a constitutional petition for the postponement with a reason that students were confused about the syllabus.
