Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 12th Oct, 2019

Dear Indraj, you cannot change the Email address during the correction window. And without being able to change the Email id, the whole application becomes unfortunately helpless because you cannot even receive any notifications. So it is better you register with a new email id and mobile number and fill the application form again.

as a foreign graduate, with a short amount of time in hand, what is the best way to study for FMGE exam?

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 12th Oct, 2019

Dear Meher, FMGE is routed to be one of the toughest examinations because of the level of importance. FMGE is an online test running for 2 Parts, Part A and Part B. Each section has 2 and 1/2 hour time duration for each part. There are 300 MCQs asked. 1 mark for the correct answer and no negative marking. You can check the examination syllabus at:

Preparation: Last year approximately 14,000 Medical Graduates appeared for FMGE  and approximately 3000 Medical Graduates cleared the exam. You have to complete 19 subjects over a very short span of time. Remember that all you need to score is 150 to be qualified. It is just  screening examination and not an entrance examination. Join a coaching centre if possible, revise your notes, Check your progress by taking mock tests atleast once a week. Study additional books like FMGE Solutions by Deepak Marwah. Try to install apps like Prep Ladder, FMGE Solutions App, etc.
