Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 9th May, 2020

Joel, unfortunately we do not have preparation material for FMGE. At this point in time, we only have it for NEET which is the entrance exam for admission to Medical, Dental, Ayush and Veterinary courses. But that might not help you as you have already completed your MBBS.

Sk Student Expert 20th May, 2020


The National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences (NIMHANS) is a multidisciplinary institute

for patient care and educational pursuit within the area of mental health and neurosciences. ...

NIMHANS has made considerable development and is a centre for excellence in mental health and

neuroscience inside the country.

Admission is based totally on NIMHANS Entrance Exam conducted through the university observed with

the aid of an interview. Bachelor's diploma in MBBS or MD/DNB in Internal (General) Medicine or

Pediatrics from a diagnosed institute or university.

NIMHANS is a excessive scoring examination, you need 80 and above out of a hundred to get into it. I

started making ready for NIMHANS 2 weeks after the NEET examination. There isn't any unique

coaching for NIMHANS, you have to be preparing for the NEET exam nicely if you need to crack
