How can you clear the MCI SCREENING test / NEXT exam in your 1st attempt?

Students studying in China will always have the advantage to clear the MCI test / NEXT test in the 1st attempt. Please see the reasons below.

The MBBS syllabus in China is same as in India

  1. The syllabus in China is precisely similar to India.
  2. You have to buy the books from India.
  3. Most of the Universities in China follow the same Indian author's books.
  4. Like B. D. Chaurasiya, K. D. Tripathi, Panikar, A. K. Jain, I. B. Singh, etc.
  5. So you will not have to study anything extra for the MCI test.

Final revision in the 5th Year is required.

  1. The test questions are two sets.
  2. One set depends on the practical aspect, hospital case study. Anyone can score 75% marks in this set of questions.
  3. But another set of questions is based on the theory part. Students study the theory part in the 1st year, 2nd year, and 3rd year. Now when you reach the 5th year, it is evident that you will forget the details of 1st year, 2nd year, and 3rd year, especially definitions, measurements, drug calculations, etc. Suppose you scored 85-90% in History in Class 10 exam, but you won't be able to answer a single qs of history now. The same thing may happen when you reach the 5th year.
