Aggregate Formula

2- Aggregate Formula for MDCAT 2022:

In the meeting of September 26th, 2022 vice chancellors unanimously approved the aggregate formula for the MDCAT 2022 to be as follows.

  1. MDCAT 50%
  2. FSc/HSSC/Equivalent 40%
  3. Matric/SSC/Equivalent 10%

3- How to Calculate the Merit for MDCAT 2022 Manually?

Step 1: Calculate the percentage of your MDCAT score: 

For example, you scored

  1. 130/150 in MDCAT 2022,
  2. 1050/1100 in HSSC/FSc
  3. 1070/1100 in SSC/Matric

In percentage, these will be

  1. MDCAT (130/150)*100 = 86.667%
  2. HSSC/FSc (1050/1100)*100 = 95.45%
  3. SSC/Matric (1070/1100)*100 = 97.72

Step 2: Proportionate your percentages to the Merit: 

   1- Proportionate MDCAT Score @ 50%

86.667*(50/100) = 43.335

   2- Proportionate HSSC/FSc Score @ 40%

95.45*(40/100) = 38.18

   3-  Proportionate SSC/Matric Score @ 10%

97.72*(10/100) = 9.77

 Step 3: Sum the score from Step 2: 

Your MDCAT 2022 Merit = 43.335+38.18+9.77 = 91.285%

4- The Merit List for Public Sector Universities:
