PMDC decides to display results on website

ISLAMABAD - The Pakistan Medical and Dental Council while talking action on the news item published in TheNation has decided to upload result of the Registered Medical Practitioner (RMP) exam on its website. Earlier, depriving the students of their due rights, the Council was reluctant to provide the marks sheet to the candidates who had failed in the recent Registered Medical Practitioner (RMP) exam, creating further suspicion about the transparency of the exam. This unjustified step on part of the PMDC has further intensified the ongoing controversy that surfaced after PMDC had failed 489 out of 507 students who had taken the aforementioned exam on June 20. It may be mentioned here that the passing percentage is the lowest in the history of RMP exams in Pakistan. The students have requested Chief Justice of Pakistan, Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry to intervene into the matter. While talking to TheNation, Registrar PMDC, Dr Ahmad Nadeem Akbar ensured that the result would be available on its website. He said the PMDC was showing no hesitation in issuing the result cards. I was not approached by any of the student regarding the marks sheet issue, he maintained. He was of the view that the PMDC cannot compromise on its standard and said due to the high medical education standard, Pakistan ranks in top ten countries.
