Before rushing to the beefy content of the article, it is worth mentioning that MDCAT was previously called MCAT. MCAT stands for Medical College Admission Text, but MDCAT stands for Medical and Dental College Admission Text.

Another bonus point for the students reading this article. Don’t forget that the answer keys are given so that you don’t need to find the answers on the internet. Just saved your time there, pals.

Before you begin with preparing the past papers, you need to know that the game is a bit tough.

You already know that MDCAT is considered the most difficult entry test in Pakistan because more than 50,000 students take the test every year and almost only 3,500 clear the test and get admission in government medical colleges.

So, the pass percentage for MDCAT is only 8%, but don’t worry, you have to fight for only one seat. Just hard work and focus on your goal and aim for getting only one seat.

The Medical College Admission Test (MDCAT) is an examination designed to test a student’s readiness for the medical profession. The MDCAT exam is administered by the University of Health Sciences (UHS), Lahore. The test is administered only in Pakistan and it is designed to assess students seeking admission into UHS approved medical colleges in Pakistan.

The MDCAT exam is a prerequisite for admission into all public and private medical colleges and dental colleges within Pakistan.

The MDCAT exam consists of 200 MCQs that are answered in 180 minutes. The sections include Biology, Chemistry, Physics, English and General Knowledge.

The MDCAT exam is offered once a year in August. The exam registration generally opens up in May and closes in July. There are no fixed dates for the exams.

The basic idea behind MDCAT is to create a repository of questions that can be asked in an interview for a particular topic. It serves as a study guide for prospective candidates for an interview.

The questions are contributed by the community and might not be complete or accurate, but it still serves as an excellent source of information.

Medicine is one of the most rapidly changing and dynamic fields in the world. As medical technology and science have advanced, the practice of medicine has become more efficient and effective.

If the pass percentage frightens you (which is quite reasonable), there’s still another option. You can apply for MBBS in China if you’re unable to get admission in Pakistan. Here’s a link to help you explore this idea:

I know what you’re thinking, MBBS in China has no value and it’s expensive, but you’re wrong. You can read above article where all your questions are answered. The questions were asked from a student, Syed M. Musa Rizvi, who is doing MBBS in China from Xinxiang Medical University.

Some students don’t know the benefits of these past papers:

1. Mockup Test to Check Stress and Pressure

You need to take a test of yourself and check how much time is consumed. Check your stress and pressure. It’s not the stress of Physics and pressure of Chemistry rather the English ones. 🙂

2. Repeated MCQs with Modifications

You will see observe many MCQs are repeated every year. They can be the same MCQs and with little modifications.

3. Weakness and Strength of You

You come to realize your weakness and strengths on different topics and areas. Some students just keep memorizing now stuff, but don’t practice because they hate doing it. If you’re among them, change your attitude.

4. Difficulty level of MCQs Year Wise

You will see observe many MCQs are repeated, you don’t only need to see the repeated rather you have to check the difficulty level of the MCQs so that you can prepare for the MCQs, and you understand the psychology why the MCQs are repeated.
