You will receive an invitation letter upon verification of the documents submitted.
Your admission is ensured. You can move to Ukraine but for that, a visa is necessary. Apply for it as soon as possible. You would need the invitation letter while applying for a student visa.
The number of students who sit for a NEET exam is a lot more than the seats available in a few top government colleges.
Rest of the students are left with no alternative than to take admission in a private college and private colleges are more than expensive.
Government-approved colleges of foreign countries like Russia, Kyrgyzstan and Ukraine are tough competitors with such private colleges.
Ukraine is affordable, competent and globally recognized. Thus, making it a preferred destination.
