Recently, MCI-BoG has been dissolved with the NMC coming into action. This has created many confusion among students about the changes that had been done by the MCI an whether they will persist or not.

Well, the arguments and discussions among experts about implementation of NMC are still in process and so we know a little about the changes that is going to happen in the MBBS course.

An official Gazette from the MCI was released in the past notifying about some major changes in the MBBS course to be implemented from 2019-20 session and we believe that these changes by the MCI will remain implemented despite of its dissolution.

Have a look at the changes mentioned below and tell us in the comments below whether you feel it a good or a bad decision.

MBBS Curriculum changed

Before 2019-2020 session, the medical curriculum was completely different based on the priority of teaching and duration of the course.

Professional exams and attempts

  • For MBBS 1st year exam, maximum of 4 attempts will be allowed to clear it.
  • To complete the whole MBBS course, maximum of 10 years will be allowed.
  • Supplementary exams will be conducted within 90 days.

Internal assessment and attendance

Now, minimum 40% marks are required in each individual paper of a subject to pass the examination.

Previously, there was a rule that total 50% marks of both papers combined was required to pass a subject.

It implies that now according to this new pattern, if you score 39/100 in paper 1 and 61/100 in Paper 2, despite of getting 50% marks combined in both papers you will be failed because of not getting 40% in one paper.

Examination schedule and MBBS course time distribution

This was the new time table for the new medical curriculum that was going to be implemented from the 2019-20 MBBS batch.
But since this CoViD pandemic has disrupted all the schedules there is still a suspense on how timetables will be modified and managed.

Subject’s Marks distribution

Now, each paper in the professional examination will consist of 100 marks of questions as compared to the previous system that mostly consisted of 50-60 marks questions in most papers.

Internship Time distribution
