RESERVE YOUR SEAT FOR MBBS IN ABROAD ADMISSION 2018-19
Let us examine a few more options apart from MBBS in Bangladesh.
In 2017, many of the students were waiting for NEET exam. These students made a big mistake since the application deadline for most of the MCI approved MBBS Abroad Universities passed.
As a result, they might have wasted one more year by repeating it. STEPS offers you an innovative solution by reserving your seat and taking the admission letter in your hand as your PLAN B.
In case you get the admission through NEET 2018, you need not go to your chosen university for MBBS abroad. However, in case you do not make it, at least your backup plan is ready.
Hence, it would be a smart decision for those students who already booked their medical seats.
You must take note of these important points:
- The fees of private medical colleges in India have been jacked up by almost 50% reaching around Rs. 75 Lacs for the full course. Within a half of this budget, you can complete MBBS in Bangladesh + MD / MS in Germany! It is very simple to carve a global career for medical practitioners now!
- The admission to the Government medical colleges would be only for top 2-3% of the NEET takers.
- You do not need to pay even a single Paisa for reserving the seat except the University application & processing fees.
So just reserve the Medical seat in MCI approved MBBS abroad university as per your budget and relax!
Kindly note that many unprofessional agents collect money from you for the first year Tuition fees from you. As you can see, STEPS clearly gives you an indication of the actual fees and its service charges.
