2nd Year Anatomy Viva Questions Major and Minor 2014

For anatomy viva : KEEP YOUR HEAD CLEAR before entering the room . Both examiners start with basic questions but catch you where you mention some key word. ye aur kahan hota hai? hota hai ya nahi , yes or no. embryological basis ? derived from which layer of embryonic disc? which day/week? is tarhan ke rapid fire questions. so its important to have all senses intact , eyes and ears open.
plus both like to diversify questions, they make sure the vivas aren't predominately from one or two main chapters. so don't leave any chapter completely.

Most of them are repeated. So here’s what we had done, in our facebook class group, we had made a discussion topic, and everyone told the MCQs of sendups and discussed them. Well, you may think us nerds or whatever but trust me that discussion proved very fruitful for all those who participated in it.I think enough has bin said about orga…

I am a final year student at King Edward Medical University and I took my exam on June 10th. Final year is the year before internship/ house job in Pakistan. I just got my scores: 99/266

Let me introduce some myths surrounding USMLE Step 1 which are especially prevalent within Pakistan; I am not too sure about India because I heard their students typically appear in their final years.

 Myth number 1:Do not appear for USMLE Step 1 within your graduation

 Verdict: Baseless, illogical reasoning

Explanation: This is so prevalent in Pakistan it’s almost pathetic. One of the biggest concerns surrounding our students is that Step 1 is a huge risk to be taken before graduation. Let me put it in another way: Step1 would always remain a risk whenever it is taken, …
