It is not possible for any doctor to know all the answers to the questions asked in PGMEE exam.

Having said that, there will be no negative marking in NEET PG. So what do you do to increase your overall attempt with high accuracy? The thumb rule for high accuracy in an MCQ based exam is- Read all the choices before choosing one.

But what if you have no clue? Here are some unknown techniques put together by PrepLadder experts! Read and score more in NEET PG this year:


1. The Von Restorff effect:

Conventionally, we are taught to believe that first option chosen was most likely to be right and it’s better to refrain from changing. But research shows otherwise. Most of the times we change from wrong to right. But we remember those few instances where right option was changed to wrong. This act of selectively remembering unfavorable/usual events is Von Restorff effect. The percentage of “right to wrong” changes is 20.2%, whereas the percentage of “wrong to right” changes is 57.8%, nearly triple.

2. “All of the above” is often a correct response

If you can verify that more than one of the other responses is probably correct, then choose “all of the above.”

3. If all else fails, choose response (b) or (c)

Many examiners subconsciously feel that the correct answer is “hidden” better if it is surrounded by distractions.

Use this trick only if the question is completely alien to you and you cannot even eliminate a single option.


4. Problem solving is an art and you perfect it by practice

So practice the above mentioned tips as much as you can before you go in for the exam, also get comfortable with the idea of online exam and try to apply your pen and paper knowledge more effectively on a testing software that looks like the real NEET PG exam.
