Impact of Coronavirus (Covid19) in Academic Session and Admissions

As we all know NEET 2020 got delayed due to Coronavirus (Covid19), NTA has announced the new exam date for NEET 2020. NEET 2020 will be held on Sunday, July 26, 2020. The announcement was officially done by MHRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank in a webinar held on May 5, 2020, so we expect that MBBS admissions in Russia will start from September and will continue till November 2020. As the Coronavirus (Covid19) will also impact the academic session for the MBBS in Russia as well. As per today, Russia is seeing a surge in Covid19 cases, if we see the situation in the light of the present situation the admissions for MBBS in Russia might get extended till December 2020. The impact of this will be in the next academic year also but as per the information released, the next academic session of 2021 will start as earlier. Due to Covid19, there can be some issues with the Visa rules for the students who are traveling from India to Russia. Notification by the Medical Universities of Russia is yet to come for the academic session 2020.

Many nations already constrain entry at their borders, and only nationals or legal residents are allowed to enter unless there are significant reasons for doing so. How this will affect international students in the fall of 2020 is still uncertain, but you should follow developments closely so that you can plan. Measures taken against COVID-19 may affect education in such a way as to delay the award of high school diplomas or degrees. This, in effect, can mean that when you qualify for a program of research, you theoretically may not fulfill all the criteria. It is plausible that universities will adjust this type of situation because it will impact a large number of first-year students. Because the pandemic affects not only learning but also the management and enrolment of candidates, it is plausible for academic institutions to implement adjustments to their enrollment processes and to postpone application deadlines or semester start dates. Please check your institution(s)'s official website daily for any updates. Russia has introduced locking steps to restrict the transmission of infection. No date has been announced concerning the application deadlines for the autumn semester of universities in Russia. The deadline is usually not before July.

Russia is one of the world's most famous attractions for med students. Students who wish to pursue MBBS in Russia or some other qualification of medicine submit to several scientific universities of Russia each year. Russia is the biggest country in the world in more than one-eighth land area. Russian medical universities are well-known throughout the world. The standard of Russian medical universities is quite high. The colleges are adopting the universal curriculum. The housing costs in Russia is very low and the infrastructure is also of top standard. The Russian State is holding a close watch on medical institutions and seeking to improve the quality of the higher medical education program. 30 Russian medical universities were ranked one of the 100 top medical colleges according to the WHO Database of World Medical Schools list. Students who complete their MBBS from Russian medical universities are working in one of the best hospitals worldwide.

As we all know that eventually, the entry test for MBBS universities is becoming more and more difficult resulting in more students opting for studying abroad. One of the reasons that Indians students go for Russia is because of the great cultural and economic ties both the countries share. Education is not only affordable, but it is also of very good quality too. The staff is highly skilled and professional. Moreover, another huge advantage for Indian students is that they no longer have to worry about legalizing the certificate for practicing in India. A bilateral agreement was concluded between Russia and India to eliminate this procedure, and all Indian universities automatically recognize the Russian Higher Education Document. Students who have done their MBBS from any other country abroad need reassurance that they will be able to practice medicine in India with that degree. The degree you are given in Russia is a Doctor of Medicine, MD that is true in India after you have completed the MCI examination. After you have passed this exam, you can obtain a Certification of Eligibility for Practicing Medicine in India and you will operate wherever, in any hospital, whether government or private, in India. Not only this, but the degree can also be used to practice medicine in countries like the UK, USA and Australia which makes this option far more appealing for students.

The highest pass percent was registered by students having degrees from Bangladesh (27.11%) and the Philippines (25.69%). The pass percentage of students graduating from China and Russia is only 11.8% and 12.9% respectively.Expert of the industry says earlier NEET Qualification was not mandatory and MCI screening test used to be the toughest possible exam anywhere in the world. It is the reason behind the low selection rate in FMGE Exam by Indian students. Some experts even say that even if the Students passed from Indian private college would appear for the FMGC exam more than 70% would fail.

Now NEXT (National Exit Test) introduced by The National Medical Commission Bill 2019 is expected to be easier than the MCI Screening Test. The purpose of introducing the National Exit Test is claimed to be that as the above is also a licensing exam. This will also serve the purpose of Screening Tests for Foreign Medical Graduates who are now required to qualify the Medical Council of India Screening Test (Foreign Medical Graduates Examination or FMGE) and will for admission into postgraduate medical courses.

Life of Indian students in Russia

Medical students in Russia have a safe and comfortable life. Students are equipped with the highest standard housing and facilities at college campuses. Both services are accessible at a very small cost in universities. Students in Russian medical universities savor a cultural diversity. There are several cultural activities and festivals held throughout the universities every year. Students are taking part in these activities. This allows them to recognize diverse cultures. Residents living in Russia are very courteous to Indian students. They talk in Russian and regard Indians as successful citizens in the country. They are very kind and compassionate, which is very helpful to students who are scared to visit a host state. Besides, there is a substantial percentage of Indian communities that also hold exhibitions for Indian visitors. They also play a significant role in the entertainment of Indian visitors. The Hostels of Russia are neat, clean and amazing. 2 student’s students can share rooms, 3 students can share rooms, and 4 students can share rooms, depending on the student and the adjustment with each other. Hostels are fitted with maximum protection, CCTV camera region, washing machine facility is also accessible, and students may even prepare their food in their kitchen if they choose to cook by themselves. The Hostels of Russia are safe and comfortable, which are located very close to the main campus, making it easier for students to reach the university in time. Russia is a huge state, so it's no surprise that the weather in different regions varies a lot. Therefore, a significant country territory is in a temperate climate environment, so that Indian applicants can feel at ease.

The students who want to pursue MBBS from a recognized university in a foreign country can make their dreams come true. In Russia, the Indian students can go for MBBS who aren’t able to get selected in Indian college. There are numerous universities in Russia that offer six years of MBBS course for both local & overseas students. The students must have scored 50% marks in the 12th standard, and they should have a valid passport to take admission in the best university in Russia. There are no language tests, no entrance tests, and donation asked from the students who are interested in pursuing MBBS from Russia.
