Have you attempted PGMEE previously? If yes, what did you do different this year that lead to your success

No, this was my first attempt

 

 

How big is the role of practice and revision while preparing for PGMEE and how much time should be dedicated for it?

Practice and revision plays a major role. I attempted all PrepLadder and DAMS tests. I dedicated 3 whole months for revision.

 

Did PrepLadder play a part in your success? If yes, how?

Yes. PrepLadder’s test screen was like real AIPGMEE test screen. So I was comfortable with using the software in exam. Skipping/marking/reviewing questions was easy for me. That saved a lot of my time.

Also because of the high number of participants in PrepLadder exams I came to know where I stand. So I worked hard to improve in each attempt.
