FAQ: Medical Education Commission

To ease the process of inquiry, Edusanjal has covered major issues/concerns of various stakeholders regarding the Medical Education Commission through our multiple portals. detailed information regarding Commission and its system including the Common Entrance Examination can be accessed via Facebook, youtube, blogs, and the news section on the official website.

Can students who have completed Diploma course directly study medical courses like BNS, BDS without entrance examination?

No. As per the rule of the Medical Education Commission (MEC), it is mandatory for all Nepali and Foreign students to pass the Common Entrance Examination conducted by the Commission (MECEE) to be eligible to study any medical course administered by the MEC. 

What is the admission process after the Medical Education Commission entrance exam?

As soon as the Medical Education Commission publishes the results of the common entrance, the admission process begins. The merit list is created purely on the basis of entrance exam scores.

Similarly, since the candidates have already selected the institutions and programs in their applications, admission will be based on a match between the information provided in the application and the rank on the merit list. The merit list will be matched to the institution and courses until all seats are filled.

However, due to a variety of factors, some medical college seats may still remain unfilled. A wrap-up session will be held in this case, during which the remaining students on the merit list will be assigned to the institutions and courses for which they applied.  This brings the admissions process to an end. 

Students are assigned to institutions and courses based on their grades on the merit list, which is generated automatically. Admission will be made exclusively on the basis of the students' grades. In contrast to prior years, there is no need to visit the colleges for the application process or to pay the fee. As a result, there is no room for bias or manipulation.

The medical education council has set the fees for all of the programs. Students will be required to pay a third of the fee at the university, which will then assign students to the appropriate medical institutes.
