Candidates who have passed 10+2 exam with physics, chemistry and biology are eligible for the MBBS course. Selection for the course is through highly competitive entrance exam. The all India entrance exam conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSC) admits students on an all India basis against 15 per cent of the total seats in all Medical and Dental Colleges run by the Central Government, State Governments and Local Bodies except in Andhra Pradesh and Jammu & Kashmir. There are also separate Entrance Exams conducted by Medical Colleges affiliated to the Universities run and managed by the State Governments that admit students on the basis of state domicile. Medial Colleges in some states also admit students on the basis of their performance at the 10+2 level.
Becoming a doctor is a childhood dream for most kids. There is perhaps no other career, which commands such respect and awe as medicine. The power to heal has traditionally placed the medical profession several rungs above all the others. A doctors' profession involves a lot of hard work and at the same time, it brings also with it the satisfaction of having cured patients. They diagnose illnesses and prescribe and administer treatment for people suffering from injury or disease.
