Recently, the Delhi High Court (HC) had made an announcement that the candidates who did not qualify or appear in the NEET this year are eligible to enroll to study MBBS Abroad. This good news has been a major relief for those candidates who did not qualify or appear in NEET in 2018.
The High Court granted a one-time exemption to all medical aspirants who are willing to study MBBS Abroad.
While passing the judgment, the Delhi high court has asked the MCI to issue eligibility certificate (EC) to these medical aspirants within a week.

“This is a major relief for me as I was depressed on the thought of wasting one year to enroll in a medical college. The High Court has paved the way for many students like me who are good in studies but could not qualify NEET because of the pressure to perform on boards. I now have the option to enroll in an overseas college where the fees will be much lower and career prospects will be higher,” said an MBBS aspirant Kavya Shekhar.
