Many of the students wait for NEET exam and results. These students are making a big mistake since the application deadline for most of the MCI approved MBBS abroad universities would pass. In turn, they would waste one more year by repeating the year. MOKSH offers you an innovative solution by reserving your seat and taking the admission letter in your hand as your PLAN B.

In case you get the admission through NEET 2023, you need not go to your chosen university for MBBS abroad. However, in case you do not make it, at least your backup plan is ready! It would be a smart decision for those students who already booked their medical seats. You must take note of important points:

  • The fees of private medical colleges have been jacked up by almost 50% reaching around Rs. 75 Lakhs for the full course.
  • The admission to the private medical colleges would be only for top 2-3% of the NEET takers.
  • If you have prepared only for the state boards, it would be very difficult for you to prepare for NEET even in 2023!
  • You do not need to pay even a single Paisa for reserving the seat except university application fees.

So just reserve the seat in an MCI approved MBBS abroad university as per your budget and relax!

Kindly note that many unprofessional agents collect money from you for the first year tuition fees from you. As you can see, MOKSH clearly gives you an indication of the actual fees and its service charges.
