Well as far as I know then a student need to complete a bachelor's degree with the pre medicine track in order to eligible for medical school and then they take MCAT for admission in medical courses. Diploma is not appropriate and you need the pre med track of course.
I hope my answer helps.
All the best.
Well as per the rules any student who wishes to enroll for medical education need to do a pre medicine track along with their undergraduate course as a mandatory course. If you don't have that then you will have to do that before you cn enroll for medical course or can give MCAT for the admission
MCAT is for Candidates who want to pursue Medicine in the United States, Canada, Carribean islands and Australia. If you are from India, you need to complete your 12th with Physucs, Chemistry, Biology and English as your core subjects and then appear for NEET. Because qualifying in NEET is mandatory even for students who want to study MBBS abroad. Once you qualify in NEET, you can appear for MCAT and then start the process for applying to study Medicine in any of these Countries.
Well I would like to inform you that USA does not have MBBS program for medical education. They have MD program in which admission is possible only after completing undergraduate studies with pre medicine track. So you need to first complete your bachelor's and that too with pre medicine track and then apply for MD program by giving the MCAT exam.
