The PMC MDCAT Exam 2020 washeld across Pakistan, AJ&K and Gilgit Baltistan on 29″ November 2020, with a second special exam held on 13″ December 2020for Students who could not take the exam earlier due to being Coivd-19 positive. The MDCAT Exam consisted of 200 multiple choice questions. The passing marks for the MDCAT Exam were 60%.
A Post Exam Analysis including a Reliability Item Analysis in line with international Standards and best practices was carried out of the PMC MDCAT Exam. The analysis included a discrimination index and item wise analysis of all 200 questions on the basis of answers given and the topic syllabus as approved by the Academic Board. Questions found to be ambiguous on analysis of the answers by students and the formation of the question itself or which were below the cut off benchmarkof the discrimination index were assessed and equal benefit granted to all students ensuring no student is adversely affected.
From the MDCAT Exam held on 29″ November 2020 a total of fourteen questions with seven in biology, five in physics and one in chemistry were post analysis taken out of the scoring and all students have received maximum marks for these questions. From the MDCAT Exam held on 13″ December 2020 a total of seven questions were similarly taken out of the scoring and all students have received maximum marks for these questions. It is clarified that the questions taken out are not removed on the basis of being out of the syllabus but rather based on the examination standards of ambiguity and discrimination. The ambiguity is caused in part due to different text books being employedin different parts of Pakistan which may not be fully compliant with the relevant Board Curriculum or otherwise by the formation of the question itself.
Post analysis the exam achieved a 0.96 on the Cronbach’s alpha (on a range from 0 to 1 with 1 being maximum) which is a standard to determine the measure of internal consistency and scale reliability of an exam. Hence the exam is determined to be extremely reliable and consistent with its structure and objectives.
