Dear friends the war is ahead…the war to cross. U.P.S.C .We are living in an era of tough competition. Unless & until you have a well planned strategy you will miss the target. So sharpen the instruments In your armoury and be prepared for the final war to triumph in the examination.. Thousands are appearing for the examination and from that a few will be called for interview. In previous occasions candidates amounting to5-10 times of the reported vacancies were interviewed. The experiences of the author as well as many selected candidates show that you should have 100or above correct answer out of 120 questions to get a call for interview.
Analysis of previous question papers show that questions are asked from all the subjects of B.H.M.S course. 120 questions with maximum marks 100 will be asked, duration 2 hours. The approximate break up of questions as appeared in the previous years is as follows.
Materia medica 30-35
Forensic medicine 3-5
Community medicine 2-5
The break up shows that maximum questions are asked from Materia medica and Practice of medicine. Organon,Gynae,Repertory and surgery come next in the order. So the candidates should give more time for these subjects. If you can score well in these subjects half the battle is won. But you should not neglect other subjects also.
Plenty of MCQ type books and study materials are available especially for allied subjects. But lack of study materials is a major problem with regards to homoeopathic subjects. Students should read the authentic Text books

Oxford hand book of medicine,
