Admission guidance for MBBS abroad
More and more Indian students are studying medicine abroad—and more and more of them are doing so for all the wrong reasons. Many who choose to study abroad do so because it’s difficult to get into a college in India, or because the tuition fees are too high. Others have the opportunity to study medicine but don’t take it because they’re afraid of having to study for the MCI’s National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET). But if you’re considering studying abroad, you should know that there are several advantages that studying MBBS outside India can offer you.
The first is that you’re much more likely to get into a college abroad than you would be in India. In fact, many foreign universities will admit students based on their 12th-grade marks, while Indian colleges will only consider students who have scored above a certain aggregate in their board exams. Additionally, getting a government seat in India is much more difficult than getting one abroad, as there simply aren’t enough seats to accommodate everyone who wants to study medicine.
Another advantage of studying MBBS abroad is that it tends to be less expensive than pursuing your medical degree in India. Tuition fees at private colleges in India are often exorbitant.
