Government Medical College and Hospital, Sector 32 (GMCH-32), will conduct a separate entrance examination for non-resident Indian (NRI) candidates who aspire to get admission in MBBS.

The examination will take place on June 21 for six seats reserved for NRIs.

It is for the first time that the entrance examination has been made compulsory for NRIs also; earlier, they were being given admission on the basis of Class-12 marks.

According to a circular issued by Dr Atul Sachdev, director-principal, GMCH 32, the examination was being conducted as per orders of the Medical Council of India (MCI) that had taken the decision at an executive committee meeting on January 16.

The examination will be on biology, physics and chemistry, and will have multiple-choice questions.

Earlier, city-based pre-medical test trainer Dr Arvind Goyal had given a representation to the GMCH-32 as well as the MCI to introduce a separate examination for NRIs.

He argued that standard of school education varied from country to country, so an entrance examination was the only way to assess NRI students.

Even parents of medical aspirants in Chandigarh were making the same demand for several years, as even below average NRI candidates would easily get admission t GMCH-32.
