How to clear MCI SCREENING test / NEXT test in the 1st attempt?

Students who will study in all 45 MCI listed Colleges in China, some colleges in Russia, Ukraine, Kyrgyz will always have the advantage to clear the MCI test / NEXT test in the 1st attempt. This is because:
MBBS Abroad Syllabus

MBBS Abroad Syllabus

The syllabus in China is precisely similar to India. Even you have to buy books from India. The same Indian author's books, which are followed in Indian Medical Colleges, are taught in China. Like B. D. Chaurasiya, K. D. Tripathi, Panikar, A. K. Jain, I. B. Singh, etc. So you will have to study anything extra for the MCI test.
The same syllabus is followed in some Colleges in Russia, Ukraine, and Kyrgyzstan and also in Bangladesh.

90% Attendance in MBBS Course

90% Attendance in MBBS Course

If you can maintain 90% attendance during your MBBS course in any institution abroad, you will automatically become a good doctor.
But if you avoid classes and then take unfair means to pass exams in your college, then do not expect to clear MCI Test or NEXT test.
China is the 1st country in the world to maintain a strict attendance system and Exam procedure.

Revision of Whole Syllabus in The Final Months

Revision of Whole Syllabus in The Final Months

The test questions are of 2 sets. One set depends on the practical aspect, hospital case study. Anyone can score 75% marks in this set of problems.

But another set of questions is based on the theory part which you will study in the 1st year, 2nd year, and 3rd year. Now when you reach 5th year of your course, it is apparent that you will forget the details of 1st year, 2nd year, and 3rd year, especially definitions, measurements, drug calculation, etc. Suppose you scored 85-90% in History in the Class 10 exam, but you won't be able to answer a single question of history now. The same thing may happen when you will reach 5th year.

So what will you do.... You will just study once more the textbooks of 1st year, 2nd year and 3rd year in the final 3 - 4 months of 5th year.

Join Any Online Or Offline Coaching In The Final Year

Join Any Online Or Offline Coaching In The Final Year

These coaching centers generally charge Rs 15000 - 20000 for the whole four months of coaching online. You will be able to do all these things while you are abroad. Alternately you can join their Classroom coaching too.

Target Minimum 70% Marks In Semesters

Target Minimum 70% Marks In Semesters
