Indian students who have completed their MBBS degree from a foreign university are seeking relaxation for appearing in the upcoming Foreign Medical Graduate Examination. There are hundreds of foreign medical graduates who are going to give the FMG examination this year. Candidates are worried as the FMGE is scheduled for next month.
Indian students aspiring to give FMGE who have passed from Bangladesh medical colleges are worried that they will not be able to get their degree certificates from the country due to the travel ban. These FMGE aspiring students have given their final professional MBBS examination in March 2020. However, they have not yet received their degree from the university due to the current situation caused by the Coronavirus Pandemic.
Now, because of this reason, the students have requested the National Board of Examination that they ought not to be asking for final degree certificates from these students as they have not yet received the same.
The Board should now accept the mark sheet of such students because most of the universities are also not able to issue the degrees because of the pandemic. All these aspirants have requested to the MCI to look into this matter and act accordingly.
The National Board of Examinations should help these students who are aspiring to be certified doctors in India. Each FMGE is very crucial to all the foreign medical graduates as it is their chance to be certified doctors to be able to practice in India.
As Benjamin Franklin said- “Lost time is never found.” Missing an FMGE can be seen as a big loss in their Medical career.
