PETALING JAYA: Those who did not meet the minimum grades required by the Malaysian Medical Council before beginning medical studies may not be accepted as housemen once they graduate.
Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr S. Subramaniam said they were aware that agents were getting students to sign up to further their studies overseas despite not meeting the minimum grades.
"We are going to do it soon," he said, when asked when the move would be implemented.
Dr Subramaniam said this after launching the International Symposium on Precision Medicine on Tuesday.
On Sunday, The Star ran a report on students who entered medical schools abroad without a "No Objection Certificate", which requires at least five Bs in Science and Mathematics subjects at SPM level.
