You should be well versed in the usage of the computer to enter into any university nowadays since it'll be a very important skill to pick up but it isnt necessary as a requirement i think.

i guess not science is in books and if you mean medical doctor then practice is the best to be good

Is it computing sir/maam? Or is it computer knowledge? I think computer knowledge is not a compulsory for practicing medicine but it will sure make your life a lot easier. Imagine yourself using a typewritter typing a report about one of your patient's condition then suddenly you make a mistake or forgot o add something before. With a computer you won't have to go through those trivial hassles. It's like using a cellphone or a pay phone. Do you walk a kilometer or 2 to the nearest pay phone or do you just get your cellphone out and dial? They both have the same effect but one machine does the job faster, easier and efficiently.

It may not be directly needed but nowadays if you don't have computer knowledge you're kind of screwed because nowadays almost every job has computers into it so whatever is your job of course you should know how to use technology to help you out.
