MBBS in General

The medical profession is one of the most essential in modern society, so it stands to reason that medical degrees are lengthy, demanding and altogether among the most challenging and competitive paths to pursue. Very few other subjects rely so heavily on your confidence in yourself, absolute commitment to the field, and desire to make a difference in real people’s lives. Those who choose to study MBBS degrees will need a strong interest in the sciences, along with a passion for helping others – and it’s a combination of these two factors that provides the motivation needed to keep going through the many years of training required to become a fully qualified doctor.

Yet, why do so many people choose MBBS as their career to embark upon despite the competition and tens of years of physical and mental challenges? One the one hand, it involves real people’s health, even life; it is demanding yet the payback - a sense of achievement - is not to be compared by any other career. On the other hand, being a doctor usually mean a respected social status and a fulling career.
