Many students want to be future Doctors/Dentists, but due to lack of Medical Colleges and the toughest route to any Medical college leads to hectic situations. Students keep in their minds that they will only do MBBS or BDS, they do not think of any other stuff at all, which ends up in very depressive state of mind for few of them.
Percentage of students who want to be Doctors are getting higher and higher and so is the population. So there is very competitive environment right now to have admission in any Medical College. Students are working harder for their bright futures, but some of them take their aim way more serious than their lives. Recently in MDCAT in Pakistan 2017 there was a student who died during exam due to Nervous break down. This is very alarming situation. There is nothing more important than life of a person. So student should change their Mind set. They should compete for their admissions but should be brave enough to choose other fields in case of failure to get admissions in Medical Colleges.
