Common Entrance Exam concept brought by the government of Nepal in 2075 BS.
It will be the common platform for all the medical aspirant, where the admission process will be much easier to conduct.

In it, all the student have to appear in a single entrance exam, from which student will be able to choose their respective Medical College throughout the nation.
At present, the entrance exam is conducted by autonomous Medical College and university for admission in the MBBS program just for there on medical seats and affiliated colleges.

Concept of Common Entrance Exam is all about to make student able to choose their desired Medical College from the single entrance platform.

Because of several disputes and disorganisation in the pattern of the entrance exam conducted by all different Medical College and university, the concept of Common Entrance Exam has not been implemented till now.

Government of Nepal is looking forward to making it happen, as it is the system adopted by many other countries such as NEET Entrance Exam in India.

So far, many committees are assigned to make Common Entrance Exam possible but still it hasn't come in action.
As per information by the Ministry of Education Nepal '2020' was targeted year to make it possible but  still there is no update from the Ministry of Health, Nepal and Ministry of Education, Nepal

So as per the provision in the constitution of Nepal until Common Entrance Exam comes in action,
All the medical college and university will conduct their own entrance exam for admission of the student in the MBBS program.


All these autonomous Medical College and universities offer a scholarship for admission in the MBBS program.
The scholarship seat is decided by the Ministry of Health and ministry of education, which depend upon total seat given to Medical College for MBBS program in the current year.

There is the provision of giving 10% of the total medical seat for scholarship under the guideline of the Ministry of Education, for private medical colleges which are owned by Nepalese citizen.
There is provision for 20% of the total medical seat for a scholarship under the guideline of the Ministry of Education for each private medical college which are owned by the non-Nepalese citizen.

Autonomous college like BPKIHS and PAHS do not come under these guidelines of the Ministry of Education.
They have there own scholarship seat under different provisional categories.
