- Aspirants are also required to submit the relevant documents/proofs in support of the passing of the final examination. Failure in submitting the documents will lead to cancellation of candidature for FMGE 2020 December session.
Note that, the applicants who have done their undergraduate and postgraduate medical degrees from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, United Kingdom and the United States of America need not appear for the December session of FMGE 2020.

Foreign Medical Graduate Examination or FMGE is a licensing examination conducted by the National Board of Examinations (NBE). An Indian citizen or OCI who has completed his/her primary medical qualification from an institution outside India, but wishes to practice in India needs to clear this examination to register with the Medical Council of India (MCI)/State Medical Council (SMC). However, as FMGE was introduced in the year 2002, candidates who had completed their primary degree course on or before March 15, 2002, are not required to appear for this examination. One must also note that FMGE is not an entrance test and cannot be used to take admission in any institute. It is merely a licensing examination for foreign medical graduates.
