Texila American University goes the extra mile to make MBBS possible for deserving medical aspirants in India
As we find ourselves in the month of September, the last three months would have certainly been a difficult period for medical aspirants. This can be seen throughout the country as students looking to secure an MBBS seat go through a mix of pressure, expectations, and anxiety.
According to the current scenario, out of approximately 15 Lakh NEET applicants this year, only around 75,000 are lucky enough to secure an MBBS seat.
Whats next after NEET?
Now that the NEET counselling has pretty much ended, there are still about 6+ lakh NEET qualified MBBS aspirants who are left wanting or disappointed. For this sizeable group of medical aspirants, there are only a few options and alternatives that they can opt for. These options include – trying through NEET the next year, opting for management quota, choosing an alternative line of study or selecting an overseas study destination.
Although these options seem relatively good, they come with their own set of challenges that students will have to overcome. Trying through NEET the next year is not as plausible as it was before as a number of NEET applicants and the required cut-off scores keep increasing every year. This consistent increase in applicant numbers and the required scores makes the chance of succeeding the next year even slimmer.
The second option is to opt for a management seat. This means the student can still join MBBS at a private college at around 3 of 4 times the normal fee, and in some cases even higher. The next option is to entirely abandon MBBS plans and take up an alternate line of medical study like Dentistry, Nursing, Pharmacy, etc. All the above options involve a significant amount of compromise as the student is forced to change their preferences or shell out exorbitant amounts of money and a lot of time.
How about studying MBBS abroad?
The final option is opting to study MBBS abroad. Although this has become an increasingly popular trend off-late, there are many who are highly critical of this option. This in spite of the students having social and academic abilities along with numerous avenues to meet the required financial requirements. This is mainly due to a few worries, doubts and misinformation that makes a lot of students and parents apprehensive towards studying MBBS abroad. Once the study MBBS abroad option is taken into consideration, the number of options available to you are plentiful. That being said, choosing the right country and the right university is extremely crucial as there are many key factors to carefully analyse. These include costs – both tuition and living, safety, living conditions, social environment, quality of education, recognition of the university, etc.
Now, the study abroad option has so much easier and accessible with the new scholarship announced from Texila American University in Guyana, South America. Through this scholarship, Texila American University in association with the Niran Prabha Foundation gives the common Indian medical aspirant, an amazing opportunity to turn their doctor dreams into reality.
