Scopes; Advantages for MBBS Study Abroad as Indian candidate

Studying MBBS is a dream for most of the students in India. From childhood, parents, loved ones wanted to see his/her kids to be a Doctor

Scenario of Medical Study in India

There are approximately 50,000 under graduate medical (MBBS) seats available all over in India, whereas 10 lakh students appear in various All India medical entrance tests every year including NEET, AIIMS, JIPMER.

Hence, every year, only 5% of the students aspiring to become a doctor will achieve their goals.

There are a total of 335 medical colleges in India out of which 181 are private institutions and 154 are government run institutes.

Most of the private medical institutes have a capitation or donation fee ranging from 40 to 50 lakhs with an yearly fee of 9 to 10 lakhs. For any middle class family, even if the student secures a seat through entrance tests, MBBS still remains a forbidden fruit due to astronomical fee structure of the private institutes.
