AFMC used to have an entrance exam of its own back in the year 1996 when i took it. The first step was to qualify in the multiple choice type written examination following which there was an interview and finally a thorough medical examination before finally making it to the fortunate 105(the number of males qualifying each year for AFMC).The choice for AFMC was simple. It was one of the best colleges that made not only doctors but also complete gentlemen out of you.
