Gynaecology and Obstetrics are the 2 vast subjects clubbed together under the one. Students can’t afford to get questions wrong from this subject as it will adversely affect their ranking.
According to the recent official subject wise marks distribution for NEET-PG, around 30 questions are expected. This clearly shows the importance of this subject in NEET-PG.
We hope all of you are in the final phase of your revision and working very hard to turn your dream into reality.
To ease your revision for Obs & Gynae, we approached the famous faculty of OBGYN, DR. Prassan Vij to share the important topics which are high yielding & must on quickly revised in the left out time.
