Hello, please tell us something about yourself.
My name is Subhash Chandra Tard. I did my MBBS from Beihua University (Jilin China). I scored 171 in FMGE December’17.
According to you what is the correct approach to study for FMGE? Only MCQ's or Theory + MCQ's?
According to me, a combined approach of MCQ and Theory is essential.
When should the preparation ideally be started?
The best time to start your preparation is 2nd year onwards.
Please list the books you studied for each subject.
I read the following books for different subjects:
Anatomy- Review book.
Physiology- Guyton & Hall.
Pharamacology - Lippioncott and Govind Garg and Sparsh Gupta Review book.
Obs & Gynae- Sakshi Arora .
Pathology- Harshmohan .
Surgery- Amit & Aashish.
Is this your first attempt? If No, what did you do different this year that lead to your success.
No, this was my second attempt. I gave first attempt right after my final year exams and I scored 148, that was my hard luck. Thereafter, I decided to put in more hardwork and this time I proved that with your hard work you can replace your hard luck .
What's the role of practice and revision while preparing for FMGE and how much time should be dedicated for it?
Practice and revision play a crucial role in your preparation. Without proper revision and practice you can’t decide between two close options. I think 6 months is more than enough.
