i am first year mbbs student can someone tell me which speciality has demand in indian army as well as in foreign i want to go for both
Hi! For Indian army and Foreign services, clinical and non-clinical are in high demand and important in their own aspects. It completely depends on you, which speciality you would want to opt for.
Here is a list of top courses:
Obstetrics and Gynaecology
I am using gangong for physiology which is the best mcq book that can make me solve all mcq in neet pg or next from physiology????
Ganong is one of the best books you can refer to for physiology. If you like foreign authors, textbook of Medical Physiology by Gyton and Hall is also excellent. If you want to try Indian authors, I suggest you go for GK Pal. It has easier text as compared to foreign authors. A more easier textbook would be the one by Sebulingam. You should purchase a separate textbook which has all the MCQs asked in previous years NEET papers.
Hello If I take admission and leave within 5 month what amount will I have to pay in new aiims eg jodhpur patna? and also is it possible to take a seat and then actually not go there and continue preparing for neet pg which has been delayed this .Pleass help .
You would be paying the college fees in installments of annual fees so only paying for 5 months or any refund is not possible.Also if you pay the admission fees your seat will be confirmed but if you do not turn up to that course within the prescribed time period your seat will be subjected to cancellation except only for valid reasons like medical conditions. If you are keen on getting into a choice of your college kindly take a year off and prepare.
Best of luck
