Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 18th Oct, 2019

Dear Raj, if you fell behind your semesters because you failed in few subjects, you do not fall under Rusticated Category. Rusticated Category is for those Students who have been suspended from College for whatsoever reasons. The criteria to appear for FMGE is that you have to complete your MBBS by clearing all subjects and mandatorily complete the 1 year internship atleast by March 31st, 2020. Rest all is good.
