The retest of the National Medical and Dental College Admission (MDCAT) sparked a huge controversy as the question paper was leaked on social media before the test.
Minister Saad Khalid initially dismissed the reports of the paper being leaked on social media but just 12 hours before the test was scheduled the paper was seen on social media platforms.
Moreover, a student that went through the examination claimed that she had received an email of passing the examination but on the portal she was marked as failed.

After this finding, Minister Saad stated that the MDCAT will be retaken and the students will have to undertake the examination again. He also stated that the investigation is now in the hands of the FIA.
