I am taking the liberty to answer both your questions together as they delve on the same topic.

Doctor of Medicine (MD) is a professional degree given in some countries like the USA, Canada etc. Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) is the degree given in the United Kingdom, Ireland and other commonwealth countries like India and is considered equivalent to the MD.

In India to apply for a MBBS you need to have Physics, Chemistry and Biology in your 10+2 grade. In addition to that your son will have to appear for an entrance exam.

Entry criteria vary in different countries. Medical school admissions are highly competitive all over the world and the applicant will need to sit for an entrance examination (e.g. MCAT, UKCAT, BMAT, etc.). In India medicine is an undergraduate degree. In the US and Canada medicine can only be pursued after completing an undergraduate degree thus increasing the number of years of study. As in India, in the UK a medical degree can be obtained after five and half years of medical school.

To apply for medical college in India the student will need good grades in his 10+2 grade. He will need all the three sciences for medical school in India, i.e. Physics, Chemistry and Biology. In addition to the entrance examination some colleges have personal and group discussion sessions as well.
