MBBS in India


  • In India getting an MBBS seat is highly competitive.
  • In 2017, 11.4 lakh students appeared for the NEET UG competitive exam.
  • Since there are only approx. 41,000 seats available in the various Government or Private Medical Colleges across India, students have to repeat a year or pay donations to study at Private Medical Colleges.
  • About 2-3% of students get to Study MBBS, which has created a shortage of Qualified Doctors in India.


  • Government and Private Medical Colleges have to admit students on the Basis of the NEET score (since 2016)
  • The shortage of seats in Government Colleges and high Tuition fee ( ₹ 75 Lacs) at Private Medical Colleges, has made it tough for students interested in studying MBBS.


  • The MCI is considering changes in the Medical Licensing System, making it mandatory for students from Public & Private Medical Colleges in India to sit for an EXIT Examination.
  • Hence students who study MBBS/ MD abroad will have to give the same exam as Indian medical Students.
  • Foreign Medical Doctors, will have better knowledge,training and experience compared to the students from Private Medical Colleges in India.


  • The biggest benefit of MBBS abroad is you can study MBBS without any entrance examination.
