can we get government job in Karnataka if we clear FMGE??
After clearing your FMGE, you can apply for the position of DMO in a government hospital but you will be under full authority of a GP and you have to report your duties to him.
So don't dwell much into securing a government job, your first priority should be clearing your FMGE and securing a PG seat. It's tough I agree but not Impossible. Give your Best.
As a reminder, Don't just clear FMGE with passing marks , clear it with good scores because your FMGE score becomes your PG seat counselling criteria.
Hope this helps.
All the Best.
