FMGE (Foreign Medical Graduate Examination) is a screening test that is conducted by the National Board of Examinations (NBE) for medical professionals who have completed their MBBS In abroad. The examination is a pre-requisite for medical graduates who wish to practice MBBS in India. It is conducted twice a year, in June and December, and the results of the December 2022 screening test were recently announced by NBE.
The December 2022 FMGE screening test saw a total of 31,942 candidates applied for the examination, with 9850 of them passing the test. This translates to a pass rate of 32.22%, which is a significant improvement from the previous year’s pass rate. On the other hand, 20700 candidates failed the test, and 1372 were absent from the examination. 20 candidates had their results withheld for various reasons.
The college-wise list of results is expected to be released in June-July, and candidates who passed the examination will be granted permission to practice medicine in India. The FMGE screening test is a crucial examination for medical professionals who have completed their medical education abroad, as it determines their eligibility to practice medicine in India. The test measures the candidate’s knowledge and understanding of the medical curriculum and the ability to apply it in practice.
However, it is worth noting that the FMGE screening test is set to be replaced by the NExT (National Exit Test) in the near future. NExT is a comprehensive test that will evaluate the knowledge and skills of medical graduates, both foreign and Indian. It is designed to ensure that all medical professionals who practice medicine in India are competent and have the necessary knowledge and skills to provide quality healthcare.
In conclusion, the December 2022 FMGE screening test results have shown a significant improvement in the pass rate, and this is a positive sign for medical professionals who have completed their MBBS in abroad. The results of the examination will allow them to practice medicine in India, and the college-wise list of results will provide insight into the performance of medical colleges across the country. With the introduction of the NExT examination, medical professionals can expect a more comprehensive evaluation of their knowledge and skills, ensuring that they are well equipped to provide quality healthcare to patients.
