What Steps to Follow After Passing FMGE 2019?

Once a medical student completes his/her graduation in medicine from a foreign medical university, they are required to clear the FMGE (Foreign Medical Graduates Examination), also known as the MCI Exam / MCI Screening Test. Passing the FMGE is mandatory to acquire a medical practitioner's license in India.

As mentioned in previous posts, the FMGE is conducted by the National Board of Examinations. It is a bi-annual exam that takes place in June and December every year. While some students crack the exam in one attempt, many opt for MCI Exam coaching to get a clear understanding of the exam and its syllabus. 

This year the December session of the examination will be held on December 20, 2019.
