There is a large misconception in a lot of people’s minds about MCI/FMGE screening test. There are some false Numbers circulating on the Internet that shows that the passing percentage of students studying Abroad is very low. Although it is true that the passing percentage is low but comparing to the no. students sitting in the NEET exam every year and not able to secure a seat, those numbers are dwarfed significantly. Moreover the Indian Government does not keep any kind of record of the students studying medicine abroad country wise. Which makes it impossible to come up with any accurate figure. The numbers that are seen on the internet are churned out by various consultancy agents and agencies just to serve their purpose of luring students into getting admission in universities of their desire. Although if you visit any hospital today you can always find doctors who had graduated from various Medical Universities of abroad like Russia, Ukraine, Kyrgyztan, Phillipines, China, Bangladesh, Georgia, which does prove in itself that Students from Medical Universities do pass the exam and work as Doctors in various medical Intuitions.
