MBBS Program

Attendance & Examination

In order to derive maximum benefit from integrated teaching the student is expected to have 100% attendance in all the subjects.However to meet unavoidable contingencies the student should have not less than 75% of the attendance separately in theory and practical/clinical, to be eligible to appear for university examination. If a student is deficient in attendance in one or more subjects he/she will not be allowed to appear for the examination of that or those subject(s) of the particular examination. If a student is deficient in attendance, he/she should make up the attendance in that subject(s) before he/she is permitted to appear for the examination.

A student should clear all the subjects of the Part I: Basic Sciences, before he/she is promoted into (semester V) third year. A student must complete the different subjects of Part I Basic Sciences – I MBBS Examination within three years of admission. Similarly a student must complete the different subjects of the Part I Basic Sciences (excluding Community Medicine) – II MBBS Examination within four years of admission. Failing to do so, he/she will be discontinued from the MBBS program for those who fail to clear all the subjects as mentioned above readmission at the discretion of Dean of school of medical sciences as a fresh candidate may be take place. However there is no guarentee. In such situations the candidate will have to pay fees to the University and the college as a fresh candidate. Fee paid earlier will not be refunded or adjusted.

A student will not be allowed into Semester IX until he/she has passed Community Medicine, Forensic Medicine, Otorhinolaryngology and Ophthalmology.

Internal Assessment: The internal assessment will be in the form of formative and sessional examinations and the marks obtained in both shall carry the marks allotted for the internal assessment.

Promotion

A student will be allowed to join the second year even if he/she fails in any number of subjects included in the I MBBS University examination.

If a student fails in any subject of paper I and paper II of the I and II MBBS University examination, he/she will be detained in the second year and will not be promoted to third year. He/she is allowed FOUR more chances to appear in the failed subjects as follow:

  • First compartmental examination will be held within six months after completion of regular university examination on a day to be notified by the university during which he or she will be allowed to reappear in the failed subjects. (This is counted as the FIRST CHANCE. Even if the candidate does not appear in this examination for any reason including falling ill, even then Kathmandu University Examination Regulation counts this as having missed the FIRST CHANCE by the candidate).
  • If a student fails in the first compartmental examination he/she will be allowed to reappear in the next regular university examination in the failed subject. (This is counted as the SECOND CHANCE. Even if the candidate does not appear due to any reason including falling ill, even then Kathmandu University Examination Regulation counts this as having missed the SECOND CHANCE by the candidate).
  • If a student fails in this attempt, he/she will be allowed to reappear again in the following compartmental examination. This is counted as the THIRD CHANCE. Even if the candidate does not appear due to any reason including falling ill, even then Kathmandu University Examination Regulation counts this as having missed the THIRD CHANCE by the candidate).
  • If a student fails again he/she will be given the last chance to reappear in the next regular university examination, failing which he/she will be subject to dismissal from the programme. (This is counted as the FOURTH AND THE LAST CHANCE. Even if the candidate does not appear due to any reason including falling ill, even then Kathmandu University Examination Regulation counts this as having missed the LAST CHANCE by the candidate).

A student must complete and pass in different subjects included in I MBBS University Examination within three years of admission and also pass in different subjects included in II MBBS University Examination within FOUR years of getting admission in the MBBS Program. Kathmandu University counts the number of chances of University examination on the basis of examinations held by the University in sequential order. A candidate who fails in a subject in a university examination and has to take the examination again, if he/she is absent in the next University examination due to any reason, the university counts this examination as having missed a chance provided to a failing candidate by the university, whereby the candidate loses one chance even though he/she becomes absent in the examination including falling ill.

Students who fail to clear all the subjects as mentioned above may be considered for readmission which is solely under the discretion of Dean of School of Medical Sciences as a fresh candidate in the FIRST YEAR. In such a situation the candidate will have to pay fees to the University and to the college as a fresh candidate, as applicable to the fresh batch of students in which he/she is being readmitted. Fee paid earlier will not be refunded or adjusted.

A student must clear all the subjects of Units I to IV and Community Medicine I, before he/she is promoted to the clinical phase starting from the third year.

A student can not be admitted to IX semester (fifth year) until he/she has passed Community Medicine, Forensic Medicine, Otorhinolaryngology and Ophthalmology papers of III MBBS University Examinations.
