“paper was difficult.. im happy i passed 🙂
most of my answers were just by ruling out other options. because it is impossible to study 5 yrs portion in 3 months and it is impossiblt to remember everything u have read in the last 5 yrs.
thanks to afmg. it helped me have an organised system of study. and if you are thorough with their notes (which are not bulky as compared to the other institutes), and if you were clear with concepts from med school and if you used your common sense for ruling out other options, you wil surely pass.
afmg teachers are good because they clear your concepts.
concentrate on psm, surgery, medicine, ophtha, patho and basic concepts from all other subjects..”
secondly, do not even try to attempt controversial questions in these mcq books and dont believe all their answers. when i first came to delhi in dec end, i bought pg plus, aaa and mudit khanna. sorry to say, i just did 2 topics from pg plus and tossed it away. from aaa i might have dont 1/10th of the book.lol. and less than 5 pages of mudit khanna. what i am trying to say is that reading these books solely is not the only way to pass. i feel that the level of difficulty is very high in these books. instead you can just get one book and try to think and solve the ques. i personally wont recommend using mcq books for all subjects for all topics. you can use it in the beginning just to get the hang of how to solve mcqs
thirdly, i never passed any exam of mbbs without understanding what i am studying. i mean, there were no short cuts. our curriculum was well planned, but there were many who are there just for the sake of being there, if you know what i mean. so, i never had difficulty in understnding concepts of clinical subjects because i knew my basics well. what i recommend is that you guys study hard there, not just to pass there, but please understand what you are reading.
for jan and feb, i studied 2-3 hrs a day. some days less than that. in march 1-15 it was around 5 hrs a day (i think that was also too much) and last 2 weeks maybe 8-9 hours a day. i ws not able to finish the full portion taught here. was not ablt to revise ophtha and pharma and patho and so many many subjects.
this times exam tested concepts mainly. memory based questions were also tested.
and finally, thanks to my two roommates. we used to throw questions at each other, irrespective of what we were studying. and many of those questions were asked in the exam. we used to study together and ask each other questions and make options of our own. we tuned our minds to think the mci way!

“Hello my junior brothers and sisters !
As we are continuously repeating the fact that the MCI exam is getting more and more difficult as every session passes by is getting true. I dont mean to freak anyone out but this is the fact and this has been proved in this March session….
Usually the March paper is considered easier than the September one and infact it was easier this year compared to September last year but the level of difficulty was higher….
In my personal opinion, the NBME ppl have forgot that the MCI exam is for Licensure and not for PG entrance…. Hope someone reminds them of this pretty soon….
MY INFERENCE OF THE PAPER THIS SEASON
1) Lengthy – The paper had very long questions (USMLE STYLE VIGNETTES) and many of my friends left out the last few questions.
2) Inconsistency – Microbiology was heavily tested and that too almost all the questions were from FUNGUS.
3) PSM – Heavily tested
4) OPHTHALMOLOGY – Around 40 questions (very important subject), many of the questions were very difficult and tested deep details.
5) ENT – This is not the trend of MCI until now but this season there were many questions from ENT.
6) PSM – Remains to be very very important subject as has always been.
“Guys, don’t freak out, prepare well, its not gonna be the easiest task you have seen but not impossible, and also remember that its the beginning… there will be many many more challenges if you are aiming high……
Don’t leave any subjects, and study itself from the very beginning… NOTES WILL NOT HELP…. I repeat, notes will not help….
All the best to the ones appearing for the next SEPTEMBER exam, hope all of you have a wonderful graduation and have perfect last time in Russia, but don’t regress the thought of the MCI from your minds, keep that in mind….”
