Till a few years ago getting admission into a medical college was really tough and around 900 marks in intermediate were required. It still holds true for good Government run medical colleges like King Edward, RMC, Fatima Jinnah etc, however in the last 5 years around 80 to 100 medical colleges were approved by PMDC. It is very easy to get admission in a private medical college. The draw back is that the fee is around Rs 500,000 to Rs 600,000 per year. Over all its a sorry state of affairs, as undeserving student who do not have the aptitude or skill to become a good doctor end up in private medical colleges if they have money (or their parents), while poor students who are hard working but cant make it in a Government run medical college cannot study medicine. This situation should be rectified by PMDC who should make it mandatory for all private medical colleges to admit at least 30 % students on full scholarship.
Here are the list of subjects and syllabus for the MBBS program as approved by PMDC
