Hello, please tell us something about yourself.

Hi, My name is Swasti Pathak and I have completed my M.B.B.S from King George's Medical College, Lucknow. I secured Rank 6 in NEET PG December 2016.

 

What do you think is the correct approach to study for NEET PG? Only MCQ's or Theory+MCQ's?

Theory plus MCQs is a must. But I personally didn't get enough time to go through individual guidebooks. I solved previous question papers once I was done with a subject.

 

When should the preparation ideally be started?

Candidates must start as early as possible. Concepts must be built whilst doing MBBS so that we can easily refresh things up during our internship. As there are so many subjects and it is not humanely possible to read everything in one year.

 

Please list the books you studied for each subject.

Anatomy : Dr Ashwani Sir's class notes and AA for upper limb and lower limb

Physio : Saumen Manna

Biochemistry : Dr Smily (Bhatia)

Pathology : Devesh Sir's notes

Microbiology : Apurba Sastry

Forensic : Class notes and Sumit Seth for toxicology

Pharma : Bhatia and Dr Ranjan's notes

Ophthalmology : Ruchi Rai

PSM : Vivek Jain

ENT : Manisha Buddhiraja ma'am'S Book

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 NEET PG and how much time should be dedicated for it?

Revision is the key, The more you revise, the better. I revised thrice before appearing in NEET

 

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

PrepLadder was the stress buster for me. The daily quizzes are quite good. I used to give subject wise tests also once I finished a subject. Its a great platform for self evaluation. I gave NBE based All India test on PrepLadder as well which was very close to my real NEET PG session.

 

Did you use a time table/study plan to keep your preparation on track?

I used a time table so as to keep a check if I was spending too much time on a subject.
 

List the most difficult and easiest subjects for you.

Most difficult : PSM and Micro
Easiest : Biochemistry, Medicine and Pharma
 
 

One mistake that you believe everyone must avoid while preparing for NEET PG.

We should not try to read out everything. Its a trap, we must be more focused and should never engage ourselves in less important or less common things.
 
 

Some last tips for our readers preparing for NEET PG?

Just have faith in yourself and your coaching notes. And remember. REVISION IS THE KEY. Revise as many times as you can.
