Is it even possible?
Answer: Whether this is possible or not depends upon where you are in the preparation journey – choose which of the following best describes you (we are assuming a somewhat loose description also works):
- Category (A): I haven’t finished any subject completely; I have revised many subjects half-way through; I am yet to start Psychiatry & Anesthesia; and don’t get me started on Anatomy & Biochemistry (or something to that effect & you get the drift).
- Category (B): I have done most short subjects except for Radiology / Ophthalmology (or other similarly difficult subject!); I have covered 60% of Medicine, Surgery and Pathology. But I am afraid of the figures from Robbins. I am an ace at OBGYN, PSM and Physiology. Micro – I’ve seen xyz videos.
- Category (C): I have done everything thrice – except for environmental disorders in Medicine, surface marking in Anatomy & vitamin K in Biochemistry (those I did 4 times!).
- Category (D): I am halfway through everything – and I am losing my mind thinking of all that is left. Clinical scenarios & extended matching & multiple-correct type questions are giving me sleepless nights!
- Category (E): I have seen all videos of xyz course plan, made notes & done half the q-bank of abc test series. But I am scoring poorly on the Grand Tests.
- Category (F): All that I have been doing is Previous Year Question topics – I have done all of that 4 times, now – still seem to keep forgetting Horner’s syndrome, renal autoregulation & acetyl CoA. Common narratives, all of those.
- Category (A): At the cost of trying to master everything, you are probably missing out on a lot of scoring subjects & topics. I am pretty sure that PSM is also a sore point with you (difference between paired t test & unpaired t test).
And really, you want to leave out anatomy? Brachial plexus, with its applied anatomy; nerve supply of the hand; shoulder abduction – that’s 70% of upper limb done, right there! You are missing the trees for the forest, my friend.
- Category (B): I will be blunt: you only think you are an ace at a particular subject. Which drugs cause hypokalemia, and which ones cause hyperkalemia? Which antibiotics cause QT prolongation? Is the Macula Densa a part of the DCT or the TAL? Wake up & smell the coffee, please! By the way, big thumbs up on chucking radiology & ophthalmology (no kidding!).
- Category (C): Don’t worry – I made up this student. She / he doesn’t exist!
- Category (D): This is common, and expected – no need to panic. Deep breathing exercises will help. Whether you can keep your nerve in the upcoming days & utilize them effectively will determine your outcome.
- Category (E): You have covered & read a lot, understood quite a bit, revised next to nothing & remember very little. Oh, come on! Honesty – unless you are honest with yourself, no one can help you!
- Category (F): Alas, this one is also a figment of our imagination! This is the smart Alec – the select few who will crack the exam with flying colors – and surprise everyone (“Yaar, kya baat kar rahaa hai – usska ho gayaa?”).
Of course you all want to know what to do. It’s simple – One single solution for everyone, no matter who you are, which category (A through F), & whatever you land yourself to:
PYQ topics. Keep brushing up the high yield points of all the subjects & keep a good hold on PYPs. Do not start
reading rare phenomenon & syndromes in any subject , just because you think you have aced that subject. Though theoretically our brain has unlimited capacity to memorize but practically working memory is limited , so do not overload it with information at this point of time.
(for the uninitiated, PYQ is ‘previous year questions’).
We are adding some PYPs Questions & Solutions for your reference:
- INICET November 2022 Questions & Answer Key
- INICET November 2021 Questions & Answer Key
- YouTube Playlist for Neet PG Revision
We are attaching 3 samples of how a PYQ topic is dealt with, for illustration:
- PCR- polymerase chain reaction- if multiple questions have been asked in past from one topic, like PCR , go through that topic through and through as it’s a source of potential future questions.
- Common nerve injuries – in case of dispersed data like in here, making tables important points at one place.
