MBBS is a shortened form for the Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery. MBBS is a bachelor’s degree in the domain of medicine. This degree is a combination of 2 distinct fields, to be specific Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery. But the curriculum of MBBS includes the combined course for both fields. For getting admission to MBBS, students are expected to qualify for a national-level entrance test. The National Testing Agency conducts an entrance exam called the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET). The level of NEET is one of the highest levels.
