Chhatrapati Shahuji Maharaj Medical University (CSMMU) vice chancellor has written to the Medical Council of India (MCI) with the suggestion of the upper limit on the number of attempts. In response The MCI’s governing body has agreed that ‘a student shall not be allowed to graduate later than nine years of joining first MBBS course.’
Another important change is about number of attempts for taking a professional exam. From now on, only four attempts would be given to students to clear the first university professional examinations. And the first professional course must be completed within four years of admission. Partial attendance in an examination in any subject shall be counted as an attempt.
