NEET Mandatory For MBBS From Abroad
Students going abroad to study the doctor must also now have to pass the National Eligibility Low Intention Test (NIT). The Union Health Ministry has decided to make it compulsory from next year. With this policy coming next, adding this provision is going to be issued in the next few days.
According to the sources of the Union Health Ministry, after the order of the Supreme Court, the Central Government had amended the Medical Education Regulation Act for admission in MBBS. After this, it has become mandatory to become a doctor in India. It is also within the purview of this law that if any Indian doctor takes a degree from anywhere, then he must first pass it down. If a foreign citizen wants to study medical in India, he will have to pass it properly.
Screening test will also be taken after taking a degree
The Ministry said that those students who are interested in medical studies abroad from the session of 2018-19, they will first pass the test. To go abroad, a certificate of qualification has to be obtained from MCI. This certificate will be given to those who will be able to pass it properly. If someone gets a medical degree from abroad without passing it properly, then it will not be valid in the country. After taking a medical degree from abroad, screening test is also to be taken.The Central Government official said that this decision will improve the quality of the students coming from abroad after reading the doctor. 80 percent of the young people who come with a doctor’s degree from abroad fail in the first attempt of the screening test. On the other hand, nearly 12 lakh students sit in every year. Of which six lakhs pass it, but the seats in the country are only for 65 thousand.

There are many changes coming in from the next year. As such, now the general category can sit for 25 years and the reserved category candidates can hold for 30 years. The provision of three attempts has been abolished. At the same time, the examinations will be held twice a year and the best score of the students will be included.
