Before anything else know about BS & NMAT:
The medical course in Philippines MBBS Universities college is different from that in former USSR countries or China as the candidates get admitted in a two-year BS course before they can join a medical college — Philippines follows a 14-year schooling pattern for gaining eligibility for medical courses unlike 12 years of schooling in India, China or Russian countries.
The National Medical Admission Test (NMAT) is an instrument designed to upgrade the selection of applicants seeking admission to Philippine medical schools.
A) Conditions for Low NEET Grades MBBS Admission in Philippines:
1. Union Government and the MCI have made it compulsory for all students to qualify NEET and then proceed to foreign countries for MBBS. So by default low ranked students are eligible to take admission for BS courses which is mandatory in Philippines before giving NMAT entrance for MD course.
2. They have to obtain eligibility certificate from MCI without which outside admissions are not possible and what would facilitate the candidate to take screening test conducted once they return India for practicing or higher studies.
B) Conditions for Not qualified NEET students MBBS Admission in Philippines:
1. As we know there is BS courses mandatory before enrolling MD course. Students can enrol BS course without qualifying NEET entrance test.
2. BS course is 2 years course and students will get 2 years of time to give NEET entrance to get qualified. By the time they can prepare for NMAT also.
3. Those heading to China or Russia may not face the problem as they join the medical course directly unlike in Philippines. It is also being said that the BS course duration is likely to be increased to three years. As per the Philippines norms, only one-third of the seats should be offered to foreign students.
Exclusive Reminder for Indian Students who are doing BS Course 2016 – 2018:
After BS courses, the candidates need to clear NMAT conducted by the Philippines MBBS Universities college authorities for medical admission. So those who were admitted in 2016-17 and 2017-18 in the BS course and are waiting to join the medical course also have to clear NEET first to bag the ‘Eligibility Certificate’ or ‘No Objection Certificate’ from the MCI.
A majority of candidates, who went to Philippines in the past two years, are yet to join the medical colleges as they are yet to complete the process of BS and NMAT.
Exceptional Indian Students who don’t require NEET Qualifications:
However, those who join the Philippines MBBS Universities college by April 2018 can be considered ‘safe’. In fact, the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare of Government of India has also clarified that those who have taken admission as per current regulations in foreign medical schools in Philippines are exempted from NEET qualification.
