Admission Process

  • The MBBS course is being offered in KMC Manipal and KMC Mangalore. Its duration is four and a half years plus 1-year compulsory rotating internship course.
  • The All India Rank attained in the NEET UG exam, administered by NTA, determines admission, and mcc will handle the counselling.
  • The programme follows the NMC’s former MCI criteria for both its theory classes and its clinical instruction.
  • Students can call a NEET adviser and benefit from our experience in NEET Counseling because the admissions process is made even more difficult by the university’s influx of foreign and NRI students.
