Support center for medical students who returned from Ukraine to complete their courses

New Delhi: External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar says the government is trying to ensure continued education and other academic relaxations for medical students who have returned from Ukraine

The minister was answering a question at Lok Sabha.

Last month, Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan revealed that Hungary had offered to facilitate the completion of medical training for students evacuated from Ukraine.

Meanwhile, India is also in talks with Romania, Kazakhstan and Poland to allow Indian students to pursue their medical studies.

A Ukrainian minister has announced that the KROK 1 exam, which third-year medical students must pass to advance to fourth year, has been postponed until the next academic year.

Meanwhile, KROK-2 exams for final year students have been cancelled.

The KROK-1 and KROK-2 exams are compulsory for students of medicine, dentistry and in Pharmacy in Ukraine. These exams are conducted by the Testing Center of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine.

More than 20,000 Indian students were evacuated from Ukraine last month after Russian forces invaded the country, plunging the Eastern European country into war. Most Indian students were studying medicine in Ukraine.
