A lot of Pakistani students wish to be a doctor, but the high merit of MDCAT and NUMS in Pakistan don’t let their dreams come true.
You need to have high marks in matric, intermediate, and entry tests in order to get a seat among 3500+ seats whereas more than 55,000 students take the MDCAT Entry Test every year.
It means the acceptance rate for becoming a doctor in Pakistan is only 8%. But it is the opposite for China – more than 92% acceptance rate for a Pakistani student. Great Na?
Your overall aggregate must be above 86% if you want to take admission in Pakistan, but for China, you can apply for MBBS even if you have 60%.
You might be thinking, are you serious 60%? What the heck!
Yes, it is true. For applying for MBBS in China, there is no entry test is needed.
Morever, doing MBBS in China is 50% more cheap as compared to Pakistan MBBS.
Here all your questions will be answered how to apply, what is the fees structure, the value of China degree all over the world etc.
It is worth mentioning this article is a form of an interview that I took of my college class fellow, Fazaia Inter College, Lahore, Syed M. Musa Rizvi, who is now studying for MBBS in China from Xinxiang Medical University.
These are the questions that I asked him:
Q1: PLEASE EXPLAIN IN A STEP-BY-STEP WAY HOW TO APPLY FOR MBBS IN CHINA?
You can search for Chinese Medical Universities on Google or on this website mbbs.cucas.edu.cn
Almost all the universities of China hire people from different countries. These people are called agents.
They help universities to select the students from the respective country. As far as I know, there is no university where you can apply for admission directly without involving an agent who is the in charge of admission from your country.
Step 1 – Admission Letter and Student Visa Form:
- Front page of your passport
- Your passport size photograph
- Matric certificate and Detail marks sheet
- FSC certificate and detail marks sheet
These all the steps will be told by your agent.
Step 2 – PCC
Apply for a Police Character Certificate. Yep, it seems strange, but you have to do it.
Step 3 – Attestation from Board and IBCC
Step 4 – Foreign Ministry Attestation
Step 5 – Visa Application:
- Attested degrees
- Police character certificate
- Passport size photographs
- Original admission letter and JW202 form
- Affidavit from you father as an undertaking that he will provide the money for your education Bank statement of I think approximately 5 lakhs.
Step 6 – Ticket to China:
Step 7 – Submit Fees:
Q2: IS IT TRUE THE MEDICAL DEGREE OF CHINA HAS NO VALUE IN PAKISTAN?
I have many doctor friends who graduated from China Medical University, now they are working in different countries like Nepal, Pakistan, Russia, UAE and Saudi Arabia.
I have personally met doctors in Pakistan who did MBBS from China, and now they are working in many government and private sectors.
Q3:IS IT IMPORTANT TO TAKE THE PMDC TEST TO START PRACTICE IN PAKISTAN?
Q4: WHAT IS THE TOTAL COST OF THE UNIVERSITY FOR THE FIRST YEAR INCLUDING HOSTEL IN CHINA?
- Tuition fee
- Accommodation fee/hostel fee
- Health checkup
- Visa extension
The total fees for first year in my university is approximately 5 lakh rupees.
Q6: IS THERE ANY ENTRY TEST FOR IT? CAN PUNJAB, KPK, SINDH, BALUCHISTAN STUDENTS HAVE EQUAL OPPORTUNITY OR THERE ANY QUOTA TO GET ADMISSION AS IT IS THE CASE WITH DMCAT, AND ETEA?
Yes, obviously, learning medical knowledge is hard. Daily about 5 to 6 hours of self-study and on the exam days, we study normally 11-13 hours because there is a lot of stuff to go thorough during exams including books, videos, lectures notes and articles.
The behavior of Chinese people is excellent, they give you great respect.
They help you whenever need, they feel glad when a foreigner becomes their friend.
They support you, and help you getting settle here and also in learning Chinese language.
They do have friendly behavior, and if you need any guidance at shops, they guide you to a great extent.
So, I can say, they have great behaviors outside and inside of the university.
Q9: WHY YOU DIDN’T REPEAT FOR DMCAT AND NUMS?
I got 943 marks in matric and 890 in F.Sc. I didn’t repeat MDCAT and NUMS because when I observed the last year merit, I came to realize that I had to get 950+ marks in F.Sc and 1000 marks in MDCAT, then I could expect the admission in Pakistan medical college could be achieved otherwise not.
Then I saw the friends who got better marks than me, and repeated two times, they didn’t get admission. I didn’t want to waste time, and I knew the future merit would not be low.
Secondly, the fees of private medical college in Pakistan is high that my family couldn’t afford.
After MDCAT, I became aware of MBBS in China; I taught it’s a great opportunity. I decided rather to waste a year, I could do MBBS here.
Q10: WHAT DO YOU THINK A NORMAL STUDENT CAN ADJUST WITH THE CHINESE ENVIRONMENT? OR SHOULD HE NEED TO BE MORE CONFIDENCE OR FRIENDLY?
I think a normal student can adjust in the Chinese environment without any worry. Chinese people have friendly behavior towards foreigners so I think he can easily adjust.
Q11: WHAT DO YOU THINK WHICH MISTAKES STUDENTS MAKE WHILE TAKING ADMISSION IN CHINA MBBS AND HOW TO OVERCOME THEM?
The major mistake that students make while taking admission in Chinese universities is that they do not do their own research about the university and do no look for the authenticity of these universities.
Many students take admission where agents want which I think is wrong.
Students themselves should research either the university is registered by WHO and MOE (Minister of Edcation), China.
Secondly, all the douches sent by the university to you or your agents should be real, and should be of the same university where you applied for.
Q12: WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO CHECK EITHER THE MEDICAL UNIVERSITY OF CHINA IS AUTHENTIC OR FAKE WHERE YOU’RE TAKING ADMISSION?
The best way to check the authenticity of any Chinese MBBS university is to go to the official website of WHO (World Heath Organization), go to World Directory of Medical College, search for the name of the university, there you will inf basic information when it was founded, contact information, and course instructions.
