Being a doctor in Australia is tough.
It begins with an application to register and seat for the almighty Australia Medical Exam (AMC). Every year thousands of foreigners rush to register for this exam. They come with great hopes, after all, the pay and prestige are worth it.
But the statistics continue to scare people away. To be or not to be, that is the question.

According to the latest report from the AMC, in one year, there were 2,663 people who sat for the AMC MCQ (Part 1) exam, but only 1,559 candidates passed. That’s a pass rate of about 58% people who will be eligible to sit for the AMC clinical exam.
But for the AMC Clinical Exam, only 597 candidates passed out of 2,165 candidates who wrote the AMC clinical exam (Part 2). That is less than a 28% pass rate.
