So, prepare only them.
at last the end of gyne & obs, lets hope none of us has to visit LWH anymore :)

Well for those who have gyne tomorrow just read stuff and have a firm idea of what gyne obs is all about. Do causes of thngs and study forcep delivery with indications etc well. Apart from that all get 50 percent and above but just a little work can make you get 65 percent or more. No need of instruments, labour, models etc.... Every one is helping and nice. All externals are awesome. Waseem Yousuf is bit cheeru but everyone is pass... So relax and do study and u would be ruling all the way. Best of luck.
