MBBS in India
Chances of getting MBBS admission in India?
- In India getting an MBBS seat is highly competitive.
- In 2017, 11.4 lakh students appeared for the NEET UG competitive exam.
- Since there are only approx. 41,000 seats available in the various Government or Private Medical Colleges across India, students have to repeat a year or pay donations to study at Private Medical Colleges.
- About 2-3% of students get to Study MBBS, which has created a shortage of Qualified Doctors in India.
- Government and Private Medical Colleges have to admit students on the Basis of the NEET score (since 2016)
- The shortage of seats in Government Colleges and high Tuition fee ( ₹ 75 Lacs) at Private Medical Colleges, has made it tough for students interested in studying MBBS.
MCI Rule Changes
- The MCI is considering changes in the Medical Licensing System, making it mandatory for students from Public & Private Medical Colleges in India to sit for an EXIT Examination.
- Hence students who study MBBS/ MD abroad will have to give the same exam as Indian medical Students.
- Foreign Medical Doctors, will have better knowledge,training and experience compared to the students from Private Medical Colleges in India.
