When the dream is big, the effort behind it will be greater! The dream of students is to choose a noble medical career and become a doctor should not be suspended due to low test scores or lack of MBBS universities in the country. As they say, if one door is closed, the other door will open.
NEET (National Qualification and Entrance Examination) is a medical entrance examination for MBBS (Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery) and BDS (Bachelor of Dental Medicine) courses in all medical schools and dental schools in India. NEET (National Eligibility cum Entrance Test) is conducted by CBSE India (Central Board for Secondary Education) and administered by the central and state governments and private universities and colleges. The exam is held once a year in July and August.
When Lacs of NEET (National Eligibility cum Entrance Test) students appeared, the entire India could only accommodate about 60,000 MBBS seats; competition became very fierce. In the end, the best is chosen, but don’t forget that the second-best is also no less either. This is frustrating for sub-optimal students who are not selected due to minimal score differences. This article is specifically aimed at those second-most passionate students who desire to change someone’s life, who also wish a meaningful, prestigious, and safe career that serves humanity through medical practice.
If the student has less than a 1% chance of getting the MBBS and BDS (Bachelor of Dental Surgery) program in India through NEET (National Eligibility cum Entrance Test), the student’s chance of getting MBBS in abroad is 50% higher. For that student, this may be a too dark scene. But can’t let it go!
“Dint get the required scores? Can’t afford college fees? But can’t give up the medical dream!” It is a very common feeling among young Indians. Don’t be discouraged… there is hope. The light is at the end of the tunnel. In more approachable countries, there are some affordable universities where you can study medicine and realize your dreams.

During their studies in the Philippines, the cherry on the cake was where they accepted English widely across the country. Just like in India, professors, teachers, and locals all speak fluent English.
