Question 15: would you suggest a student to repeat a year? If not then why?
Answer: Honestly I will not recommend repeating because after emergence of PMC medicine is going to be destroyed. In our time there was PMDC that’s why we repeated. Repeating MDCAT under corrupt PMC is just foolish. There is already a lot of saturation in MBBS already. You can earn respect and money through CSS if you are hard working.
Question 16: would you suggest a student to repeat a year? If yes then why?
Answer: I will not suggest repeating but if MBBS is really your passion give it another try but transparency chance is 50-50 as long as PMC is there and they are going to keep taking such pathetic low standard test every year
Question 17: If after giving yourself another chance, you didn’t achieve your Goal the what will you Go for?
Answer: I’ll quit medicine because one field is not end of life. I’ll take admission somewhere else. However if my parents want, I’ll give a third attempt but this time I’ll secure admission somewhere else and MDCAT will be second priority.
Question 18: Is Admission to MBBS is possible by just hard work?
Question 19: Is Admission to MBBS is possible by Luck?
