Passing NMAT Exam before guaranteeing Medical Seat for MD / MBBS in Philippines.
First and the biggest problem with studying medicine in the Philippines for Indian students is that they are first put in Pre-medical program such as B.S (Psychology) or B.S (Biology). Further the students have to pass an exam namely NMAT to get the promotion to study medicine in the Philippines for internationals. The system followed by almost all theWHO approved medical colleges in the Philippines does not suit around 30% of the students and the consultants just do not say it clearly to the Indian students who look to study at the topMCI approved medical colleges in the Philippines. Further, not every student who passed NMAT can get the seat in MD in the same medical college! Philippines MBBS syllabus is also much different compared to other countries. The requirements for medical school in Philippines is also different.
These students return back due to non-passing of the NMAT exam or for not getting through MD Philippines seat.
