Correct Answer Yes,

Yes, the transcript is your marks sheet and the Diploma is your MBBS Diploma the one that usually mounted on walls in the clinics

Yes, the final medical transcript is the marks sheet.
However, there's something else that you'll need when you apply later in ERAS, It's called Medical School Performance Evaluation (MSPE).
Most International schools do not provide MSPE's but instead they can provide with Dean's letter. Anyway do not bother yourself about this now. When you start applying to ERAS (after 2 years!) come back here and we'll tell you
