Health Ministry to Introduce All India Exit Exam for MBBS Graduates

After introducing NEET exam for admission to undergraduate courses, the government is all set to come up with an “Exit exam”. This exit exam will be conducted for all MBBS graduates from the next academic session. The purpose of this exam will be to judge or test the skills of an MBBS graduate to know if he/ she is eligible to practice medicine or not.

This exam will be the first of its kind, mandatory for all MBBS graduates to know if they can exercise medicine or not. Students will have to appear for the exam and will have to attain minimum prescribed percentiles to pass the exam and be able to practice medicine. Students will be provided with license to practice medicine on the basis of the results of this exit exam. If a student is not available to pass the exam with quality marks, he/ she will not be given a license.

Moreover, the plan of the Health Ministry is to change the already existing all-India PG medical entrance exam into a three-in-one test which will include the MBBS exit exam. “There will be no additional burden on MBBS students. The objective is to see if the graduate is good enough to practise medicine at the end of his course. We are, however, not proposing a new exam for MBBS exit. The existing all-India PG entrance exam conducted annually around November-end will be used for this purpose. The proposal is to use the PG exam for MBBS exit as also for testing foreign graduates who seek licences to practise in India,” a Health Ministry official said.
