Hello, please tell us something about yourself.

 Hey! My name is Dr. Mari Priyadharshini.  I graduated from Crimean State Medical University, Russia and I have successfully cleared the FMGE exam with a score of 217.


What do you think is the correct approach to study for FMGE? Only MCQ’s or Theory+MCQ’s?

 In my opinion, it is a must to perfect the theoretical part as it will eventually help you in solving the MCQs. So, it’s better to go with theory plus MCQ’s.


When should the preparation ideally be started?

Well, this depends completely on how dedicated you are. In my opinion, It’s better if you start preparing from the 4th year.
