Hi Prashant

Every year, for PGIMER Medical Exam, more than 1 lakh MBBS degree holders appear, but only a few get shortlisted. The exam is really tough and negative marking makes it even more difficult for the studets to give their best attempt. One should start preparing for the exams atleast 3 months before the date and proper schedule for the same should be set out so that you cover everything in your syllabus.


Below I will present a monthwise elaborative schedule for you. You can modify the schedule depending on your personal needs. You can cut on subjects you are well-versed with and invest the left-over time on your week subjects.

Month 1: Practice MCQ's relating to these minor topics -

  • Forensic
  • Radiology
  • Anesthesia
  • Psychiatry
  • Skin
  • Orthopaedics

Focus on concept clarity and detailed study on-- Medicine, Obs and gynae, Physio, Paeds.

MONTH 2- Emphasize more on strenthing your theory on these major topics-- Surgery, Patho, Anatomy, ENT, Biochemistry, Pharmacy, immuno.

MONTH 3- Revision  of full syllabus and practice of previous years papers will help you a lot. Ensure that you have one month in hand for revision and practicing of MCQs. As PGI is a theory and time intensive paper, brushing up on your concepts quickly is surely a nice idea.


  • Focus on completing your minor subjects first as it  will boost your confidence and make you ready for major subjects.
  • Divide and utilize yout time optimaly for preparation as some major topics like medicine and surgery will occupy a lot of time.
  • The last one month should be left for revision. Practice as many previous papers as possible.
  • Analyse the previous years' papers. There are some favorite topics of PGI, which are repeated every year. Make sure that you are 100% thorough with those topics.
  • Practice time management as the exam is very lengthy and many times students fail to complete.
  • Be thorough with your concepts and make proper notes for theory.
  • Study tables from your standard books of MBBS as PG guidebooks are not sufficient .

Dedication for 3-4 months of preparation,conceptual learning and practising time management will definitely help you score good marks.

Hope the information will guide you well.

Good Luck! :)
