I would like to enquire regarding special cases.
i.e.If a student under unimaginable circumstances fall prey to sickness, can he/she complete studying within a short span of 2 months joining a coaching center or so?
However a dear friend of mine is. Now she is required to appear for the exams in early jan. she had taken admission last year but couldn't attend any sessions. so she has no idea what she will be dealing with in future.
Suggentions please.#sad

I have no idea which exams you're talking about. Two months may be plenty of time, depending which tests you mean. If you're talking about something like USMLE, then no, it wouldn't be. If you're talking about something like first or second year prof in a Pakistani medical school, then yeah, 2 months is enough time as long as you use it wisely.

And yes, we do care what the reason is for editing your posts, that's why we even make the entry possible. Please remember that for next time.

Thanks.

First of, appreciation for your response.
Second, I am referring to the board exam, is it feasible? Is that right? If the unfortunate attempts it for the first time without official college coaching, can she come around?
Pardon me for the lack of med-ignorance, what do you mean by "wise" exactly? Is it 24/7, memorizing, or understanding roots? Which brings me on the brink of another question; how far does memorizing take one? You can't practically grasp the reality of this virtually unreal world can you? Oh no, that's internet.
Jokes aside, how does one pass an exam? commit to memory?
What does histology part-1, biochemistry part-1 and anatomy part-1 mean? How much do they teach in the first half? Anyone link some sites for these part one(s).
Third, I ask you again really, is it possible if she help herself to a private academy?
Can anyone then refer some good center or even a private tutor?
Fourth, I will do myself a favor and remember to post my reasons for editing (earlier, I wrote "I am no medical student", which is the truth and my status reads "medical student"…apologies)

P.S. Pakistan Medical forum has been a great help. Great thanks to the Rehan dude for those amazingly helpful sites.

Okay, I still don't understand what you mean by "board exam."

Which board exam?

Since you've mentioned histology part 1, biochemistry part 1, and anatomy part 1, then I'm going to assume you mean first prof part 1 of MBBS. Is this what you're referring to?

If she can get a qualified tutor for her subjects, then I would recommend it if she hasn't had any prior teaching. It is possible to do on your own as well, but it would take a very rigorous study schedule and repetition of the entire course load at least five to seven times. All MBBS courses require lots of memorization.

Possible to do it on your own too? Its all theory in the first year? No practical work? If its theory then definitely one can accomplish. What year are you in?
I checked out a table in one prospectus, it reads community medicine- 24 hours, behavioral sciences-5 hours, opthalomology-5 hours etc…is it just biochemistry, histology and anatomy in the first year prof?
How many books in general are required for one subject? Notes save you? because most prefer books.
If one wants to study the above mentioned parts online, how does one separate the part one(s) from the part two(s)? (they teach the remaining parts i.e. biochemistry part-1, histology part-1 and anatomy part-1in second prof, right)

You still haven't told me WHICH test you're talking about. Are you or are you not referring to MBBS First Prof part 1?

IF
you are, then no it's not exactly possible to do the course without having had some exposure to practicals. There are practicals and dissections which a student needs to have seen to really pass the prof.

First prof doesn't include all of the subjects you've mentioned. Part 1 only includes

Anatomy, embryology, histology, biochemistry, and physiology.

Studying online would be a huge mistake. Use the same books that are used in any medical college in Pakistan.

Now that I have some idea what you're talking about, this thread is being moved to the Pakistan Medical Schools section.

Unbelievably, this Pakistani forum has been of immense help.
Thank you.
Expect me later for future disturbance(s).
