Is this Admission direct or I will have to give any Entrance test?
All admissions in China for foreign students are direct. So far NO Entrance test is taken by any University in China. However all Universities have a minimum percentage requirement like 60% or 70% in PCB and in English. All admissions are done on the basis of who applied 1st, provided minimum percentage is there. So earlier you apply, better is your chance of admission.
Some Universities will take interview over phone or Skype to judge the English speaking power of the student, before granting admission.
Which is the best time to Apply?
The best time to apply is before end of February of the year of admission. All seats will be booked by that time. So apply before february to get confirmed admission in China I will be appearing for my final 10+2 exam this year. Can I apply before getting the mark sheet?
Yes you can always book your seat on the basis of 10 mark sheet and paying the Booking amount. Students who book their seat through us will get 100% admission.
I do not have passport. Can I apply now?
Yes you can apply without passport. But you must apply it as soon as possible. We will require your passport before July end to make necessary papers. Some Universities will not accept application without passport.
I am already 10+2 passed out and I have 70% in PCB and in English. Can I get confirmed admission in my choice of University?
Yes you can get confirmed admission in your choice of University in that case, but you must apply immediately before all seats in that University are filled up.
I will be appearing in AIPMT / NEET and other State Board entrance exams in India. Can I wait for the final results to come out in June and then apply? Sorry then come back next year. This year there is no chance for you in China. I will book my seat now paying the Booking amount. But if I get a seat in India, will the application money be refunded?
NO. Application or Booking money can not be refunded under any circumstances. University fees paid by that time will also not be refunded. That is why in general, University fees are taken after June. By that time all results will be declared.
What if I fail in 10+2 exam or can not secure minimum percentage required by the University? Will my money refunded?
Application or Booking money can not be refunded in either case. However if your percentage is low we will try our level best to get your admission done in any MCI approved colleges in China. So far all students who has booked through us has got admission. If, by chance , that is not done, we will arrange your admission in other countries for sure without wasting a year. But if you fail in 10+2 then we are helpless.
I will book now and I know I will get a good percentage. Now I want to wait till the final counseling in my state medical council which will be around middle of August. Can I wait?
Surely you can wait till August middle. But for most of the Universities you must pay their Tuition fees as required after getting the Admission Letter. Otherwise your admission will be automatically cancelled and no money will be refunded. University will take new student from their waiting list in that case. For some Universities date of entry is 1st week of September. In case of those Universities you have to run the other process of payment in India and China both and do the submission of documents side by side. Else we will not be able to process your paper and eventually you wont be able to reach the University before last date.
Ok I will book now and I will get more than 80% in PCB and 80% in English. Even after that if I dont get admission, what will happen then?
NO chance of that. In those universities where interview is not taken, we will guarantee 100% admission. This is because we take Applications as per our limitations of seat only. We do not take any single extra application like other consultancies.
In those Universities where interview is taken, your admission somehow depends on the quality of your interview.
