Success isn't just about what you accomplish in your life. It's about what you inspire others to do.
One such success story is of Dr Tafheem, who recently aced the FMG Jan 23 exam with an impressive score of 239 on his first attempt.
Having completed his MBBS from Khwaja Yunus Ali Medical College, Bangladesh, Dr Tafheem has set a benchmark for future aspiring FMG candidates. His achievement not only shows his dedication but also provides great inspiration to other FMG aspirants.
We tried to find out more about the inspiring preparation journey of Dr Tafheem.
In this blog, we'll explore the secrets behind his success. From his study techniques to time management strategies, let's find out what helped Dr Tafheem achieve this remarkable score.
Starting early and following a dedicated study plan for FMG preparation is crucial to ensure comprehensive syllabus coverage, reduce stress, and have ample time for practice and multiple revisions. Starting early can optimize your preparation and increase your chances of success in the FMG exam.
Dr Tafheem began his preparation journey two years before the exam, utilizing his final and pre-final years of MBBS to complete all the major subjects. He dedicated six months before the exam to preparations with a focused study plan, relying on PrepLadder's Rapid Revision and utilizing the QBank.
According to Dr Tafheem, FMG preparation is about something other than the last six months of reading, practicing and revising. Instead, it's about how well you build your foundation by consolidating the basics from the start.
Since the FMG exam syllabus features everything you studied right from the first year of your MBBS, you must build up your motion from the beginning and be ready from the get-go. And this doesn't mean drowning yourself in the ocean of studies from day 1 since it is a long journey. You have to make sure that you are consistent and that you are put in the same eight hours every day. You cannot study for 16 hours one day and then not study for the next week. Consistency is the key.
In the case of Dr Tafheem, despite the challenges of managing an internship alongside studying, he allocated around five to six hours per day for focused study sessions. He optimized his break times and free time to study, balancing work and preparation.
His effective time management and consistent effort throughout the preparation period ultimately paid off in a remarkable score in the FMG exam.
Dr Tafheem emphasizes the critical role of Revision in exam preparation. Rather than covering all subjects once, he focused on revising and practicing with the previous year's questions. This approach helped solidify his understanding and boost his confidence.
Dr Tafheem also highly recommends PrepLadder's Rapid Revision video lectures and notes to cover the syllabus during the final months before the exam. Rapid Revision features crisp and concise information and helps cover the entire syllabus in a short amount of time.
It would help if you also supplement your learning from Rapid Revision by practicing MCQs from QBank. Try to solve as many MCQs as possible to gain practice and evaluate your progress.
Additionally, utilizing concise notes from PrepLadder and studying subjects he had previously covered were advantageous in his preparation.
Remember, success is not achieved overnight but through consistent effort and a well-planned study approach. Let Dr Tafheem's experience inspire you to embark on your own journey towards FMG exam success.
