High Yield topics for NEET PG 2023

Medical graduates who want to go on to higher education need to know everything they need to know about the NEET PG entrance exam. They will have an easier time navigating the syllabus and passing the entrance exam in time to be accepted into the PG course as a result.

The NEET PG syllabus consists of three sections that are divided into various sub-sections. The Graduate Medical Education Regulations of the Medical Council of India drafted these sections. Prior to taking the exam, candidates must review the MCI-prescribed syllabus because the National Board of Examination does not offer a comprehensive syllabus for this.

The NEET PG exam pattern and subject-specific weighting The NEET PG exam pattern has 200 multiple-choice questions. Each correct response receives four points, and each incorrect response receives one point. The weighting of questions in each subject helps students concentrate on the appropriate topics.

FREE NOTES: INICET notes

These are essential, high-return topics for the NEET PG that call for a number of revisions and practices. However, this does not preclude the inclusion of additional topics or subtopics. No, it’s important to focus on these, but it’s also important to cover other topics and heads. It gets better the more you can learn and memorize. Stay tuned for more details and advice about the NEET PG exam.

5 advantages of notetaking for medical students

The ability to take notes is a skill that not only helps students succeed academically but also in business. Even so, taking notes has numerous advantages across the board.

Although a lot of people still agree that taking notes is essential, some people claim that it is an outdated method of education. Effective notes, as the saying goes, inspire you to perform well and advance your growth. Methods and techniques for taking notes have changed the learning process and made it easier to remember information for a long time.

What are the primary advantages of taking notes?

To achieve your objectives and goals, note taking is an art. It offers numerous advantages to its users, whether they are executives or students. The advantages of taking notes are as follows: Such as:

1. Improves your focus

 

One of the main advantages of taking notes is that it improves your focus. Taking notes allows you to reflect deeply on each point and maintain focus. Methods for taking notes are the ideal tool for students whose minds wander during study. because taking notes never allows you to forget anything and keeps you engaged throughout the lecture. Your ability to pay attention begins to improve as a result.

2. Encourages active learning

 

Another advantage of taking notes is that it fosters an attitude of active learning and prevents laziness. Like many students, it’s hard to pay attention throughout the lesson and respond to the instructor.

On the other hand, taking notes in class demonstrates a positive attitude and encourages asking questions. As a result, if you take good notes, you can stay engaged in class and make learning more purposeful and productive.

3. Enhances memory

 

This is another major advantage of note-taking strategies. Because of the revision and review of the notes, the amount of time spent remembering information increases.

According to a number of studies, if you write down notes, you have about 34% of the chance of remembering it. On the other hand, you only have 5% of the chance of remembering the information if you don’t write it down in your notes.

In a similar way,  taking notes encourages comprehensive learning because effective notes break down information into distinct sections. As a result, students have no trouble memorizing every point.

4. facilitates systematic work

 

The advantages of note-taking strategies extend beyond academic success and high grades. Because it is a methodical process, taking notes helps you in every way.

For instance, the Cornell method of taking notes is a methodical approach that teaches students how to work effectively.

They continue to make notes in their professional lives and jot down all the essential things and strategies necessary to complete an assigned task even after leaving college and university.

5. Enhances critical analysis

 

Note-taking is so beneficial that it enhances your critical analysis because you carefully observe each point as you write them down and decide where they belong. Taking notes in this way makes your perceptions stronger and your judgment more reliable.

Consequently, taking notes helps you analyze everything in a critical note, synchronizes your thoughts, and creates an accurate impression in your opinion.

The benefits of taking notes demonstrate that note taking is a skill that can be transferred. On the one hand, taking good notes helps a student do well in class. Taking notes, on the other hand, helps you keep your personal, social, and professional lives in balance.

As a result, it’s safe to say that taking notes is a dynamic skill that pays off in all areas of life.

HC Grants Interim Relief: MP MBBS Students allowed to appear for NEET PG 2023 despite completing internship in July

On Tuesday, the principal bench of the Madhya Pradesh high court in Jabalpur granted MBBS students temporary relief, allowing them to apply online for the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test for Post-Graduation, or NEET PG.

The deadline for submitting the application to the National Board of Examinations in Medical Sciences (NBEMS) is January 27. Forms can be submitted until noon.

The examination will be held on March 5. Due to the fact that their internship ends on July 25 and the deadline is June 30, approximately 1,500 MBBS students are currently out of the race.

“MBBS students of MP who have been declared in-eligible because their one-year internship is ending on 25 July 2023—around a month later than the cutoff date—will now be able to at least fill out their forms,” said Advocate Aditya Sanghi, who appeared on behalf of MBBS students.

“Due to the omission and commission of MP Medical Science University, Jabalpur, the internship that began on July 25, 2022, will automatically end on July 25, 2023, after one year has passed. The petitioners were granted interim relief by the High Court, which gave them until January 27, 2023, to complete the forms. The online application deadline is January 27, 2023, 11: 55 am. The advocate stated, “The non-completion of the internship period would have wasted a full year of the MBBS students’ time and prevented them from being eligible for Pre PG examination eligibility.”

NEET PG 2023: Why do experts think that a postponement is unlikely?

Will the NMC comply with the demands of thousands of students to postpone NEET PG 2023? Experts disagree. They assert that students would have been informed by now if such a plan was in the works. However, they also state that they are making efforts to have the NBE—the National Board of Examination—reconsider a postponement.

How things stand:

 

RTI and health activist Dr. Vivek Pandey says, “I sent an RTI query to NBE on January 17 to ask if any discussions are being held regarding a postponement.” I was supposed to get a response within 48 hours, but I haven’t yet (January 23). I have tried unsuccessfully to get in touch with the authorities. Therefore, I believe the exam will not be postponed.”

“NEET PG will not be postponed as of now,” tweeted Dr. Rohan Krishnan, Chairman of FAIMA (Federation of All India Medical Association). We try to convince the ministry to do the same, but sometimes we are powerless. Therefore, I ask you to concentrate on your studies and will keep you informed of any positive developments. Similar to NEET PG, NEET MDS may receive an extension of eligibility.

Flashback to the NEET PG postponement The NEET PG exam was announced to be held on March 5 this year, whereas it was held on May 21 in 2022, in order to align the academic calendar with the pre-pandemic schedule. The internship eligibility date was initially extended from March 31 to June 30, as requested by students. The demand for a delay came next.

The following are the reasons given by students seeking a delay in the exam:

1. The fact that many will not have finished their internship by the time the exam starts puts them under even more pressure.
2. Because their internship ends after the June 30 deadline, many are still unable to take the exam.
3. Students claim that they require additional time to prepare for the NEET PG 2023 exam, and the stray vacancy round for the position has just come to an end on January 10.
4. Aspirants will be idle during the possible four-month delay in counseling after the exam.

The last reason is often overlooked. A number of organizations representing students, parents, and even medical professionals, such as FAIMA and the United Doctors Front Association, have written to the authorities to request a postponement. #neepg2023 has become a popular hashtag as a result of the fact that many people regularly post this request to social media in an effort to get the attention of the relevant authorities.

According to experts, “The counseling is likely to be delayed, as a batch has just been admitted following the stray-vacancy round. “It will be difficult for colleges to admit a second batch of students within a gap of four months if counselling is conducted immediately after the exam in April,” Dr. Pandey stated. He went on to say that the same issue arose with NEET UG admissions the year before, when schools were forced to admit two batches of students at once.

On the other hand, Dr. Aviral Mathur, President of FORDA (Federation of Resident Doctors’ Association), states that the counseling date cannot be predicted at this time. After the results and seat matrix are released, it can only be determined,” he explains.

Isn’t it better to postpone NEET?

Dr. Pandey affirms. However, Dr. Mathur points out that FORDA requested polls to determine how many students desired a postponement in order to gain a better understanding of the situation. The attendance was very low; “Only approximately 10,000 students took part,” he stated. He explained that this was because, even though the polls were conducted online, the majority of students preparing for the NEET PG avoided social media. Despite this, we received a variety of responses,” he continued.

Dr. Mathur says that some students, especially post-interns (those who have finished their internship), wanted the exam to be held in March as planned because they wanted to finish it as soon as possible. The third group of students requested a postponement, while another group of students did not want to postpone the exam because they believed that preparing for a few more months would only increase the pressure.

On the other hand, a Twitter poll that FAIMA has been conducting since January 21 shows that out of 6,456 participants, 85.6 percent favor a postponement and 12.5% oppose it. About 1.9% of students do not want FAIMA to intervene in the situation.

“As a result, we want the government to examine the situation from every angle before making a decision.” However, “the authorities should consider the sentiments of all the students if there is a possibility of delay in the counseling, and no student should suffer,” Dr. Mathur states.

Some sound advice for students: “Now that it is unlikely that the exam will be postponed, the experts advise students to concentrate on properly preparing.” Discussion of postponement is inappropriate at this time. Rumors have a negative impact on students’ preparation because they easily become distracted. They will be informed if the exam is postponed. However, Dr. Mathur states, “It is time to buckle up and give their best with only a month to go until the exam.”

Additionally, in a video that was shared on Twitter, Dr. Pandey addresses students who are considering filing a lawsuit. He suggests that doing so at this time would be premature. However, students must first approach their local state authorities and request an intervention if they are interested. A legal route can be pursued if nothing comes of it,” he states. In addition, rather than directly submitting a case to the Supreme Court, he suggests contacting a High Court.

How to prepare for NEET PG in 45 days?

It’s hard to get into medical school. The National Board of Examinations (NBE) administers the NEET PG, or National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test for Post-Graduate Courses, is a national-level entrance exam for admission to Indian medical colleges’ MD/MS and PG Diploma programs.

MCI has approved the NEET PG, a one-stop entrance exam for PG medical programs. The entrance exams for AIIMS MBBS, AIPGMEE, and JIPMER MD/MS have been replaced by NEET PG. To be admitted to any of the aforementioned graduate programs, candidates must only pass NEET PG. Additionally, there is a lot of competition given that the exam is being taken by over 15 million students. If you want to pass the NEET PG exam in 45 days, the following advice will help you prepare better and increase your chances of getting into a good medical school.

The candidate must have completed MBBS from a college recognized by MCI and completed one year of internship by March 31st of the year of his or her appearance in NEET-PG as the minimum eligibility requirements for the exam.

How can I get ready for the NEET PG in 45 days?

 

Start studying for the NEET PG at least 45 days in advance if you want to get good scores. You will have ample time to review the entire syllabus and become accustomed to the exam format as a result of this.

1. Complete your coursework:

Focus on completing your syllabus and reviewing all concepts during the first 30 days. Make sure you have a thorough understanding of each topic and can apply it in clinical situations.

2. Make practice tests:

Start practicing with sample papers and mock tests within the next month. Try as many as you can, and then look at how well you did to see where you can improve.

3. Examine the questions from the previous year:

In the final month before the exam, complete at least ten question papers from the previous year. This will help you improve your speed and accuracy and give you an idea of the kind of questions asked.

4. Make use of notes for revision

The last minute preparation needs to be done from quick review notes like those of LMRP from DBMCI. Elite series of notespaedia is also famous and referred by many toppers. Last minute revision and reviewing of the notes in last 10 days is very important.

5. Use the 20th book

The most challenging part is to retain all the formulas, mnemonics and important charts which are placed in one place given in the 20th book which is available on the notespaedia website for FREE, make use of it. If you are an avid readers, you can also buy it on the website.

6. Take breaks often:

Pathology: 7 useful tricks to study for NEET PG

Pathology is one of the most troublesome yet in addition perhaps of the most entrancing class in clinical school. Your knowledge of pathology will not only help you through your transporter, but it may also one day save a life.

We have listed all the best ways to help you get the most out of your Pathology study time and retain more information so that you can get the best grades on your exams.

1.Study Resources

A proper study resource is a best way to get started to study any subject. The best way to learn any subject is through standard books, for pathology many suggest Robbins as a standard book set but it is too lengthy, therefore an ideal way to study is through notes made by expert, Dr Devesh Mishras Pathology notes are world famous and used by many of the toppers of many exams like INI CET, NEET PG, FMGE. It is easy to comprehend and has covered all major topics needed for NEET PG exam.

2. Have your basics cleared

A lifelong skill is the study of anatomy, physiology, and pathology. To comprehend pathology and the causes of diseases, you do not need to know everything about anatomy and physiology; however, you should be familiar with the fundamentals. Therefore, you should first review the fundamental anatomical structure of the brain, the structures that surround it, the blood supply to those structures, and the lobes of the brain that control each function and the physiology of the brain if you are going to study the pathology of the brain the following week. So, if you go to class and your professor talks about stroke, you will know how a blood clot blocks the cerebral artery and affects the functions of each brain lobe.

3.Instead of memorizing the information, understand it!

Facts cannot be memorized without understanding them. Study sheets and a flowchart of the entire mechanism can be made for each disease. If you try to memorize the facts, you will quickly forget them. Hence, you should understand an illness’ neurotic cycle.

4.Repetition

The more you learn, the more likely it is that you will forget many intricate mechanisms. To retain everything you have learned, all you should need to do is repeatedly repeat it. You can revise your notes on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis, but the more you do it, the more you will know.

5.Take a test to find out how much you know.

You can ask your friends questions based on your own ideas, or you can use past papers or model papers that your teachers or institute have given you. This is a must-do activity if you want to get good grades because you know exactly what you need to study.

6.Check your mistakes

If you make a mistake during a self-review and use your reference materials to correct it, it is very unlikely that you will forget it. Therefore, always pay extra attention to your errors.

7. Use flashcards / Make them

Use pathology notes to study and prepare flashcards for important topics that can help you revise more effectively.

You can make a variety of flashcards, including questions and answers, diseases and pathology, and others. Making flashcards with questions and answers can help you prepare for the exams.

Make a cheat sheet out of the parts that are more important to you and the topics that you usually forget even more easily. Accordingly, it will make amendment a lot less difficult than going through the reading material over and over.
