China to blame for low MCI Screening Test score or the Indian student?
It has been an amazing journey for Indian students to study MBBS in China, since the country had first started accepting students from the year 2004.
China and its Medical Universities have been very much adjusting, co-operative and generous towards students coming from India to study medicine. This MBBS degree course is taught for 5 years plus one year internship in English medium. At first, it was just like compelling a person from South India, to learn Hindi at his own home 🙂 Since China is not an English speaking country, teaching MBBS in English medium and even mastering the skills of Clinical Medicine is a vast achievement.
Many students who opted to study MBBS in China have been happy and satisfied with their life-changing decisions. Even their parents were supporting them, as there are no huge donations to be paid and complete 5 years study is well into their budget.
Exposing to a completely different and equally old culture like India, it gives a great opportunity for Indian students to learn a new language.
From last couple of years, all the Medical Universities in China have set a minimum criteria for admissions, which is 70% in HSC/FSC/12th class. The reason being, as per a small survey done by the China MBBS Educational Institution (CMEI) Team, all the students below 70%, 65% or 60% never take their MBBS studies seriously. They make huge promises to their parents while leaving for China, but once reach the University, never attend classes or even pass the semester exams of the academic years. This is also one of the biggest reason, the passing percentage of MCI Screening Test has been very low in India.
However those who depend on the MCI Screening Test passing percentage to make decision for MBBS admission in China, should start monitoring after 2018. This will be the time when the Indian students with good percentages will appear the MCI Screening Test.
The passing percentage of the Indian students attending the FMGE doesnot decide the quality or status of a Medical University in China. Infact it solely depends on the students how well they have prepared themselves for this challenge. Well, its NOT Rocket Science, the student has to ONLY pass out in 150 answers out of 300 questions, which is just 50%. These students have already got more than this in their 12th class, HSC exams.
A short advice for all Indian students studying MBBS abroad, “Every year you should upgrade yourself and try to learn new things in the Medical Field, which will easily help you to pass the MCI Screening Test”.
