The MCI clearing rate for University of Perpetual Help is high compared to other universities because of the close resemblance of course syllabus with Indian MBBS syllabus and the high quality methodology employed by this university in teaching.

For the Indian students, apart from completing their higher secondary examination with 65%, they should also clear the NEET examination to become eligible to apply to secure MD / MBBS admission in Philippines Medical Universities. Indian students who want to pursue MBBS/MD course have to get admission for a pre-medical course first (duration of this course is 16 months), and on completion of the same, they can enroll in the medical degree. This course mainly covers biology, medicinal technology, nursing, pharmacy, physiotherapy, and psychology. After completion of this course, students can enroll in any Medical University in the Philippines after clearing the NMAT examination, which is similar to NEET examination in India.

Students who want to study Medicine / MBBS in Philippines should get student Visa from Philippine Embassy in India. Getting a direct student visa from Indian Embassy takes time, so generally students get Tourist Visa and convert them to Student Visa after they land in Philippines. Philippines Embassy gives student visa only after completion of 18 years of age to students. As most of the Indian students travel at 17 years of age, they have to get Special Study Permit(SSP) Visa which is valid for six months. They need to renew this SSP till they reach 18 years. After that students who study Medicine (MBBS) in Philippines get student visa for the rest of their stay in Philippines till the course completion.

Part -I covers Verbal, Reasoning, Quantitative and Part-II covers Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. Please note that there is no ranking system in case of NMAT, only passing this test is sufficient to get admission to Philippines medical colleges.
