Questions related to FMGE
Hi everyone , i am a foreign medical graduate, i have passed my 12th with biology additional, like i got two marksheet, one for pcm and for only biology . can i get eligibility certificate for fmge ? anyone there to help please !
FMGE has no restrictions per se regarding the mark sheets. What is important is you complete your primary Medical Educational Qualification from a recognised University and then have the required documents which are evidence of your Medical qualification. So your 12th marks lists with Biology as an additional marks sheet should not be a problem at all. Nevertheless, to confirm the same, please mail NBE at their helpdesk at: email@example.com (mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org) . They can help you with relevant information. But ideally this should not be a problem because for FMGE, the focus is on your Medical Degree and Qualification and not on your 12th.
