Default Does internship count as the final year of MBBS or is it the year before the final exams?

Hi
I am in my fifth semester of medical school. While I was looking for electives, some places specify that you have to be in the final year of your MBBS. Does this mean the internshp period or the year before the final exam?

Sub-Internship: It is a type of clinical elective(final year rotation) in which you have almost all the responsibilities of an intern but you don't write orders, lab test etc yourself or... have to do so after discussing with chief resident or attendings... under their supervision... so it means more responsibility

In India, internship year is the last year of medical school. In Pakistan, UK and some other countries, Internship is referred as "House Job" but it is done after graduation from medical school

Thank you, NOMI. What I meant was, in the elective eligibility criterion, it is required that you have to be in the final year of your medical school for all clinical electives (sub internship is a part of the clinical electives offered). I want to apply for a CE that is not a sub internship. So, will I be eligible in my 8th semester (final exams are in 9th)? I'm form India and my internships are after 9th semester final exam.

I'll be glad if you clarify
