The common national entrance exam i.e. NEET has been made mandatory for admission to all medical courses in the country. Indian students can also pursue medical education abroad and have to qualify a Screening Test called Foreign Medical Graduates Exam (FMGE), for registration to practice in India after obtaining primary medical qualification (MBBS) overseas.

There are very welcome decisions by the central government. It has come to notice that medical institutions and universities of foreign countries admit Indian students without proper assessment or screening of the student’s academic ability to cope up with medical education with the result that many students fail to qualify the Screening Test,” the statement read. To study MBBS in Bangladesh aspirants have to qualify NEET with minimum qualifying scores.

The Health Ministry has said that the Indian citizens or overseas citizens of India intending to obtain a primary medical qualification from any medical institution outside India, on 26 July 2020, shall have to mandatory qualify NEET for admission to MBBS course abroad.

According to the health ministry statement, the result of NEET shall be deemed to be treated as the eligibility certificate for such persons, provided that such persons fulfill the eligibility criteria for admission to the MBBS course prescribed in the Regulations on Graduate Medical Education, 1997.
