GCE ‘O’ and ‘A’ level are considered equivalent to Higher Secondary School Certificate (HSSC/Intermediate). There are a total of 220 MCQs from biology, physics, chemistry and English subjects. For every correct answer 5 marks are secured. The test comprises of negative marking for incorrect answers, so for every wrong answer 1 mark is deducted. However if a question is left there would be no mark deducted. There would be no grace marks allowed in the medical admission test.
