PrepLadder congratulates Dr. Prabhat Prakash Narayan on clearing the FMGE exam. We wish him all the best for his career and future ahead.
In this exclusive interview with PrepLadder, he shares the plan that worked for him to help to get a wonderful score in FMGE.
Hello, I am Dr. Prabhat Prakash Narayan from the Ivano Frankivsk National Medical University, Ukraine. I secured 175 marks in December 2016 FMGE , this was my 1st attempt.
It always has to be the- "Theory coupled with MCQ" approach, with primary importance given to theory aspect before solving any MCQ book. Building the basic concept is highly essential for every aspirant, as the trend of questions has drastically changed from this year.
If we talk about "ideal" preparation one has to begin preparing in the last 2 years of medical school. But with a focused approach 6 months are quite sufficient to crack it.
The dedicated faculty at MIST prepared me well enough for all the subjects. But its essential for a student to go through a standard MCQ book.

PSM- Vivek Jain,
PrepLadder for Practice and evaluation. For those who are preparing by themselves I saw an excellent range of books essential for exam provided by the PrepLadder team.
No, this was my 1st attempt
Revision is the key to guaranteed success in FMGE. With each revision I found that the time taken to re-revise and recapitulate a data considerably decreases. I reserved the last 30-45 days for a thorough revision. And the last few days - smart study, focusing on high yield subjects was productive
Undoubtedly, practice was extremely essential and with PrepLadder I could practice almost anywhere. PrepLadder provided Images, MCQs, Explanations, Statistics, time management tips and the same simulated software like the real FMGE.
I used to wonder previously that why PrepLadder questions are difficult, but now after giving the exam I feel that it is apt with the ever increasing difficulty level of the exam.
Yes, I did. It helped me revise and practice in a systematic way.
I fared pretty well at my University.
Easy ones- Biochemistry, Physiology, Surgery, ENT, Ophthalmology.
Difficult ones- Pharmacology, Microbiology(not that these subject are hard to understand, but a constant revision is required- and you can score maximum in them).

Procrastination, postponing your revision schedule just adds on to pressure and when you read it after a few weeks, it takes more time to recall the facts. So a constant revision is vital - 2-3 times for all essential subjects.
Be sincere and true to yourself. Success lies out of the comfort zone. Never stress out especially in the last 2 days of exam (have enough sleep a day before). Don't read anything NEW in the final week. REVISE as many times as possible. Motivate yourself, remember the reward reflex, this one exam will open up numerous doors for you.
Remember, with the right training, the right direction and with the right intention you can overcome anything.
ALL THE BEST :)
