Hello, please tell us something about yourself.

Hi I am Dr. Hariram and I did my BDS from Ramakrishna Dental College, Tamil Nadu and my PGI rank is 5th in general category.

 

What do you think is the correct approach to study for PGI entrance exam? Only MCQ's or Theory+ MCQ's?

Both MCQ's and theory are important. Try to cover a concept and solve corresponding MCQ's

 

When should the preparation ideally be started?

As soon as possible, probably from the beginning of internship is good, but I failed to do that.

 

Please list the books you studied for each subject.

Pulse is the key book. Always try to stick to one MCQ's book and revise it several times. That's the base and do book reading according to the time you have.

 

Have you attempted any PG exam previously? If yes, what were your ranks then and what did you do different this time that lead to your success?

I got Rank 60 in last PGI, Rank 54 in May AIIMS and Rank 335 in NEET 2018. I did some more textbook reading than last year since I had more time and I believe that had made the difference.

 

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

Revision is very important and at the same time, you have to get new concepts too. You can equally divide the day for revision and new topics during at least last 3 months.

 

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

Yeah, I joined PrepLadder MDS test series which helped me a lot to be in the groove.

 

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

I have plans but it kept on changing daily but it’s always good to have plans

Were you a topper or a mediocre student during graduation?

I am an above average student

 

List the most difficult and easiest subjects for you.

Clinical subjects were easy to remember for a long time but non-clinical subjects need constant revision.

 

One mistake that you believe everyone must avoid while preparing for PGI entrance exams.

Manage your time well and balance between revision and new topics reading.

 

What was your exam taking strategy? How many questions did you attempt in PGI?

I attempted 95 questions. Always try to leave the question which you are sure that no one can answer and otherwise with minimum seats go for maximum.

 

Some last tips for our readers preparing for PGI?

Never compare yourself with anyone and don't ever doubt your ability and all the very best

 

We thank Dr. Hariram for sharing his success story.

 

Best Wishes for PG entrance

With Love, Team PrepLadder
