Advisory for Indian Students desirous of pursuing Medical Studies abroad

1. There has been an increase in the number of Indian students going abroad to pursue medical education. Since 2019, the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India has made mandatory for the students to clear the NEET-UG(National Eligibility-cum Entrance Test-Under Graduate) exam, which is the entry examination for undergraduate medical education in India, as a prerequisite to pursue medical education abroad.

2. Beginning 2019, only those students who appear for the NEET-UG for admission to Undergraduate medical education in India will be eligible to appear for the screening test namely, the Foreign Medical Graduates’ Exam(FMGE).

3. As per the IMC (Indian Medical Council) Act, 1956, all students who acquire medical qualification from countries outside India are required to clear the FMGE in order to practice in India. The Exam is conducted by the National Board for Examination(NBE) twice (i.e. in June and December) every year. The number of students appearing for FMGE has increased to 21,351 in 2018 from 6170 in 2009. However the pass percentage of students clearing the FMGE continues to be below 20%. The average pass percentage of Indian students, who studied medicine in Kyrgyzstan, clearing FMGE is 12.9%.
