lahari narisetty 22nd Jan, 2020
Hey i'm also having the same problem.
I'm guessing that NBE didn't go through the documents submitted through the portal.
I have tried calling them but it's just waste of time.
My senior advised to keep checking the portal for any further info/updates. Even though it's waste of time try calling them also.

Yesterday my result got with held in FMGE DEC 2019.Though I sent all my deficient documents to them via their NBE portal. May be they received it late. So now how many working days does it generally take to declare the with held results?

pramod thapa 23rd Jan, 2020

For FMGE JUNE 2019, withheld results were declared on three or more subsequent dates , first one was released 6 days post  fmge result declarartion. SO  i guess NBE is likely to declare the withheld results for dec fmge 2019 in a week time or so.


Hello sir, I am a Nepalese citizen and have completed my UG from Nepal (Kathmandu University). I have passed the licensing exam conducted by Nepal Medical Council (NMC) and registered in NMC. Do I need to give FMGE or any other exams to appear in this upcoming may 2020 pg entrace exam for MD/MS??

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 16th Jan, 2020

Summi, if you are a Foreign National and if you want to study MD/MS in India, you should appear for NEET PG. FMGE is for Indian Medical Graduates who have completed their MBBS abroad. This is the license exam for them to practise in India. But if you are a Foreign National, FMGE doesn't apply to you. You should appear for NEET PG and secure a seat as a Foreign National to study MD/MS here.
