Though world ranking is a good indicator of the status of a university, we have always maintained that the ranking which the students must check is the MCI Result / FMGE passing percentage. This is the actual indicator of the quality of education at any university. Global Medical Foundation will suggest that the students must take admission in the universities with a proven track record. We will suggest that the students should choose universities like:

Bukovinian State Medical Univeristy has a budget of ₹25 lakh total with fees, hostel and Indian mess.
