Join Pak Army as a Medical Officer which is also called M-Cadet or GDMO. Those candidates who have degree of MBBS or BDS cany join Pakistan Army when its vacancies come. Degree must be recognized by PM&DC or equally recognized if I is attained from the foreign.

There are many students who have MBBS or BDS degee but they do not know that how can they join Pakistan Army, Pakistan Air Force or Pakistan Navy as an M-Cadet. A candidate has to clear initial intelligence tests and academic tests if they apply for medical officer. There are different subjects from which questions are given in the academic tests in which Oral Pathology and Medicine MCQs also have their importance.

In the following, most important and repeated questions of Oral Pathology and Medicine MCQs are given which are very helpful for the students to become a medical officer through Short Service Regular Commission.
