Not Sure About MBBS? Here Are Some UG Medical Courses Without NEET

NEET UG, conducted as a qualifying exam for undergraduate courses in the medical field, is considered to be one of the toughest entrance examinations.

But owing to the high competition due to lesser number of seats available, out of this huge number of test takers, it’s only 50% of the candidates who qualify the exam.

Instead of being disheartened by the results, such candidates should look for alternate options in the medical field. To help them, we have got a list of the medical courses that students can pursue after 12th without qualifying the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test.

The rule of mandatorily qualifying NEET 2020 for pursuing MBBS from a foreign college or university was brought by MCI in 2018. Today, a large number of students hope to pursue their education in medical fields from countries like Russia, Hong Kong, China, Germany, USA and more.

The admissions to the foreign universities usually begin soon and NEET 2020 has already been delayed thrice. Moreover, international travel has been banned amid the COVID-19 pandemic, due to which even after qualifying NEET 2020, students might not be able to travel abroad for education. This was making it difficult for students to take a firm decision regarding their higher education.

Also, all the students must fulfil the criteria under the “Eligibility Requirement for Taking Admission in an Undergraduate Medical Course in a Foreign Medical Institution Regulations, 2002”.

NEET 2020 is scheduled for 13th September 2020. It will be conducted in a single shift in around 6000 exam centres. The total number of participants for NEET this year are expected to be around 15 lakhs.
