0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

The recent circular of Medical Council of India has stated that those who are going to abroad for medical education on or after May 2018 shall have mandatorily qualify the NEET 2018, then only  students will be   allowed to get admission in Medical courses     (Primary medical Education i. e. MD/ MBBS) and will be eligible for obtaining  eligibility certificate from Medical Council of India. it is also mentioned that who have already taken admission in MBBS/ MD courses( primary medical course ) overseas by taking eligibility certificate from MCI are exempted from qualifying NEET-2018 .

The problems is with each & every student who have taken admission in medical colleges in Philippines in BS course which is prerequisite pre medical course. More than 3000 students needs to first finish BS course which is of 16th Month for Indian Students( four Semester each of 04 month each).

Students left to India  in 2017 first needed to pass  BS in 2018 along with  NMAT       ( National Medical Admission Test) in Philippines. This is known by MCI and MCI has approved the existing system of Medical Education in Philippines.  

In Philippines students are doing their study for BS course & NMAT examination shall be exempted from NEET 2018. Since as per existing system in Philippines Indian Students first needs to complete the BS course( Pre-medical), pass it and also qualify the NMAT.

After rigorous study & examination of BS & NMAT Students are declared pass in  BS & NMAT . Students will be get admitted as per their performance in NMAT in MD course in MCI approved college/ University in Philippines. Thereafter Indian students will eligible to apply for eligibility certificate. On scrutiny, MCI issues the eligibility certificate in favour of student.    

 But the Indian students those who are doing study of BS & preparing for NMAT will not get time to study for NEET-2018. Moreover Students studying in Philippines are having examination in the month of May 2018. So in such a scenario students those who are in Philippines and doing BS shall be exempted from NEET 2018 and allow to give eligibility certificate after completion of their BS course, which will be completed after May/ June 2018.

Moreover within shortest period of time it is not possible to prepare for NEET-2018, BS & NMAT examination. Students must be given exemption from NEET-2018 in the similar line to the other countries Indian origin  medical students i.e. China / Russia etc because all has joined the course during the same period of time. Here in Philippines due to their curriculum of BS students could not get admitted in MD course( Primary Medical Education) 

If the exemption from NEET -2018 is not given to the Indian Students studying in Philippines  will be suffered a lot. They cannot compete in BS/NMAT at Philippines  or in NEET-2018. In such a condition in the mid way students will discontinue the study  of BS/ NMAT and will come back without any degree/ knowledge.Moreover if student will not quantify NEET-2018 and continue study in Philippines will not be eligible for screening test which is mandatory for FMGE.In that condition it will become null & void.

MCI must release notification / clarification for the Indian Students  studying BS course in 2017-18 followed by MD course are exempted from NEET-2018 to protect  the interest of students and their parents hard earned money.
