Paper leak: LHC orders UHS to hold results of MDCAT 2017 paper
LAHORE- The Lahore High Court on Thursday directed the University of Health Sciences to hold the results of Medical & Dental Colleges Admission Test (MDCAT) 2017.

The order was passed after a group of 11 students moved the court seeking investigations of a paper leak as reported on social media.

Justice Shahid Waheed of Lahore High Court while hearing the petition today asked the University of Health Sciences and Punjab Government not to process entry test results.

The respondents have also been asked to submit a written reply by September 13.

Earlier, on Monday the UHS Vice-Chancellor Prof Dr Junaid Sarfraz Khan rubbished the rumors that the entry test paper was leaked ahead of time.

According to UHS spokesman, it was just a hoax by a Facebook page named ‘Ya mbbs hai mamu’ that claimed leakage of paper.

The UHS head also moved FIA to track the hoaxer who according to him dented the credibility of the institute.

More than 65,000 candidates including 41,000 female students appeared for the Punjab Medical & Dental Colleges’ Admission Test (MDCAT) on (Sunday).

The University of Health Sciences (UHS) had deputed around 5,500 invigilators and around 1,000 superintendents and deputy superintendents.

The test was held simultaneously at 28 centres established in 13 cities – Lahore, Faisalabad, Sahiwal, Multan, Bahawalpur, Rahim Yar Khan, Sargodha, Gujrat, Rawalpindi, Gujranwala, Sialkot, DG Khan and Hassan Abdal, The Nation reported.

This year, the candidates are competing for 3405 MBBS seats in 17 public sector medical colleges and 216 BDS seats in three public dental colleges of the province. Besides, there are 2590 MBBS seats available in 21 private medical colleges and 555 BDS seats in nine private dental colleges affiliated with the university.
