National Board of Examinations has been conducting computerized Foreign Medical Graduate Examination (FMGE)/ Screening Test in June & December every year. It has been introduced through screening test regulations in 2002. As per the regulations, “An Indian citizen/Overseas citizen of India possessing a primary medical qualification awarded by any medical institution outside India who is desirous of getting provisional or permanent registration with the Medical Council of India or any State Medical Council on or after 15.03.2002 shall have to qualify a screening test conducted by the prescribed authority for that purpose as per the provisions of section 13 of the Act.”
FMGE is a licensure exam, which aims to sift the charlatans from those, who have acquired their medical degrees from another country, and are knowledgeable and skilled enough to bolster the country’s physician workforce. It is an exercise in transparency, with a well-defined curriculum, which specifies the distribution and weight-age of each subject, has no negative marking, and no limit on the number of attempts. This is MCQ based with the single correct response with 300 Questions to be answered in the allotted time of 2 hours and 30 min for each part i.e. total 5 hours There is no Negative Marking and the Criteria for passing is to score 150 out of 300 marks
For every student who studies MBBS Abroad clearing MCI Test/ FMGE Exam is the first hurdle to cross and he/she should start planning for this very early. Historically FMGE passing percentage is low and the main reason for this is lack of preparedness. If the student joins our FMGE Coaching program in the 1st year of MBBS and works on it regularly he/she can be assured of a good result.
