Eligibility Criteria for MBBS in China
"Unlike the countries that are offering MBBS at affordable costs and accept Indian medical aspirants with 50% marks in class 12th, most universities in China have done their acceptable 12th percentage capping to a minimum of 70%."
The demand for Doctors has increased in India over the past years but the medical seats in India have not increased in a similar ratio. The doctor-patient ratio in a country like ours is 1-1000. With India lacking medical seats, students have to move to other destinations for the study of medicine. China is a country that offers world-class medical education and the fee for MBBS is also affordable. MBBS is a 5+1 year program where 5 years is given for medical education and 1 year is given for rotational internship. Indian students completing their internship in China do not require re-appearing for an internship program in India. As per National Medical Commission, internship done is another country is valid practice learning and Indian MBBS graduated do not need to undergo an internship in India.
