As you might be aware that results of the 2019 term of NEET (National Eligibility cum Entrance Test), a mandatory medical entrance examination for students in India who are willing to enroll in medical or dental universities in India or abroad, were announced on July 5, 2019.
As per NEET 2019 results, 797,042 students qualified the exam. In India, medical seats are available for only 68,000 students (approximately). Rest of the students, who are not able to get admission to a medical university in India due to medical seats scarcity, have no other way left except going for medical education abroad or re-appear for NEET in the hope of a better ranking next year. While the former option seems costly, the latter option needs another year from students’ life.
We, at Victoria University of Barbados, are committed to making medical education affordable, deliver quality, and award the students based on merit.
We believe that meritorious students should not face financial hardship to fulfill their medical dreams, and we want to contribute our best and help as many students as we can.
