Subject Details

The MDCAT paper contains 58 MCQs of 290 marks from Chemistry. These questions are based on the Chemistry course, students learnt during their intermediate. These questions are based on organic, inorganic and physical chemistry.

Content and Marks Distribution:

 

Physical Chemistry

This branch of chemistry deals with the physical properties of a substance. It studies atomic, macroscopic phenomena and other chemical systems by applying techniques and concepts of Physics.

MDCAT paper contains 18 questions from Physical Chemistry. The four MCQs are based on basic concepts. While there are two MCQs each from state of matter, atomic structure, chemical bonding, energetics and electrochemistry. The remaining four are based on the concepts of chemical equilibrium and reaction kinetics

 

Inorganic Chemistry

In organic chemistry, we study those substances, their behavior and properties that contain no or a very little amount of carbon in them. We can also say that it’s a study of carbon-less compounds. This part contains 10 questions, 50 marks.

The six questions are based on the concepts from Periods (2MCQs), groups (2Q), and transition elements (2mcqs). Whereas the remaining four MCQs come from compounds of nitrogen and Sulfur.

Organic Chemistry

It is a branch of chemistry which explores hydrocarbons and their derivatives. Unlike, inorganic, it studies compounds which contain carbon. Thirty questions are based on the concepts of organic chemistry. Their division is as follows:

Three multiple choice questions from fundamental principles, 4 from hydrocarbon, 4 from alkyl halides, 4 from alcohols and phenols. It also contains four questions from each of “aldehydes & ketones” and carboxylic acid. There are two MCQs each from amino acids and environmental chemistry and three from macromolecules
