The results for the FMGE December 2023 session will be available for download from February 13. This year’s result has been considerably better compared to the June session (approximately 10% pass rate). To qualify in this 300-mark exam, candidates need to score 50% marks.

Candidates who passed the FMGE December 2023 exam will be notified about the dates for receiving their certificates by the NBE. The NBE stated, “Candidates whose face ID verification is pending, who have pending legal cases, and whose security clearance is awaited, have had their results withheld.”

It’s worth noting that if one wishes to practice medicine in India after studying abroad, passing the FMGE examination is mandatory. This test is considered quite challenging, with a pass rate typically ranging from 20% to 25%.
