This national-level entrance examination is administered by the Government of Nepal Medical Education Commission, Sanothimi, Bhaktapur, to regulate and maintain the quality of the medical education system in Nepal. The examinations for different levels are conducted separately.
The examination includes all academic institutions offering medical and health professional courses, allowing students to avoid confusion caused by multiple entrance examinations for the same academic programs and levels. It contains 200 objective questions that can be performed using technology-driven evaluation systems with less human intervention. A computer-based matching system is used to select candidates based on merit from among their options. A passing score in the entrance examination is also required for MEC to issue eligibility certificates for pursuing health courses abroad.
