This blog will take you through a preparation strategy to give you a clearer picture of the MBBS first year and help you understand how to study in MBBS 1st year.
Every year plays an important role during MBBS, the first year, in particular, is very crucial as it serves as the foundation for the next few years. As a Prof 1 student, it introduces them to new technical terms, tests their fundamentals, and enables them to brush up on their previous knowledge.
The introduction of new subjects and concepts could make you tiresome or even intimidate some. But, be rest assured that you’re not alone since your seniors have also sailed the same boat you are in right now.
So, let’s get started!
Subjects in 1st Prof MBBS
Let's take a look at the subjects that you will have to study in the MBBS 1st year. Although the reference books and some concepts could differ according to different colleges, the subjects for all will remain more or less the same. The following are the subjects for the 1st Prof MBBS course:
You must be wondering how much time you need to devote to each subject. Here, we will discuss a few pointers that will enable you to prepare an exam strategy to help you clear your Prof 1 with flying colours.
As a first-year MBBS student, you must spend at least 6 hours a day to ace the tests. There are three subjects but the amount of time to be dedicated per subject depends on your proficiency.
Let's say, if you are good at Physiology, spend one hour on that and focus on Anatomy for two hours. The attention span of a human being could be less. But, this doesn't mean that you cannot take too long to study every day and slog.
Smart Tip: Keep your preparation time crisp. Even though six hours is required, divide them smartly so that you can focus during your study hours.
Divide your study into a variety of modes. For instance, focus on diagrams for Anatomy. You can draw and mark all the parts, this way you have already covered a major part of the theory portion. Similarly, for Biochemistry, solve equations and conduct experiments in the lab.
Devising different study methods for each subject will help you understand the variation and differences to keep you focused.
Smart Tip: Identify your attention span depending on your method of study. This will make time allocation easier and you can allocate the same for an everyday schedule. Quality over Quantity
How much can I study at a given time for MBBS? Is a question that lingers in the minds of students. As far as MBBS is concerned, the quality of studying matters more than the quantity. Becoming a doctor requires knowledge so mugging up just to clear the exams would only lead to a downfall.
Getting a good grip of the basics will help you move on to other concepts quickly.
Before you move further in the blog, watch our Anatomy faculty, Dr. Rajesh Kaushal explains Facial Nerve Supply in this detailed video lecture:
Smart Tip: Relate every subject to a practical situation. Let’s say for Anatomy, try marking the parts of a human body on your own external body. For internal parts, try dissecting a cadaver with your faculty's aid or watch online videos of surgeries on internal organs for a better understanding.
When it comes to MBBS, know that success is not just defined by the marks you get since you will be evaluated on various other factors such as presentation and writing skills apart from the knowledge you possess. So, your aim should be to thoroughly understand and enjoy the subjects and success will follow.
Give in your all by putting in all your focus, passion and energy towards your subjects. A successful MBBS Prof 1 student has a deep understanding of the concepts in the syllabus, sufficient enough to treat patients after acquiring the degree. “There may be shortcuts to success but there’s no shortcut to skill” - Anonymous
