I love science. Lot of fictional novels led me to medicine.
DAMS: We appreciate the fact that preparing for an extremely competitive exam must be really challenging. During your preparation, did you ever doubt your ability to succeed in it?

Of course, I doubt it. The competition is so vast. Anybody who is completely there of his selection is a little over confident.

All the standard text books.

Dr. Sumer sir's book for radio. Rest institute’s modules.

DAMS: How important you think was DAMS in your preparation?
Dr .Shubhra:
DAMS give a direction to your preparation. T &D help in organising schedule. Physio, medicine, radio, micro, PSM were exceptional.
DAMS: What do you think is the better way of preparation between selective, intensive study and wide, extensive study? What did you choose as your style of studying?
Dr. Shubhra:
I have always been inclined towards selective intensive study, but wide extensive study is the correct approach.
DAMS: Indian PG entrances are highly competitive so to compete them students end up in appearing in multiple PG exams , kindly extend your views on this and also their pros and cons of appearing in multiple PG entrances .
Dr Shubhra:
I think its better that we still take multiple PG entrances. Had there been just one exam, it would be very unreliable. You cannot keep all your eggs in one basket. However, the exam pattern of all the exam are different from each other, so its no easy task preparing.
DAMS: Which subjects did you focus on?
Dr Shubhra:
1st & 2nd subjects, PSM, short subjects. Actually all subject barring medicine & surgery.
DAMS: What was your strategy for the exam day? How many questions did you attempt and why?
Dr Shubhra:
Exams are not about the no. of questions, it is about the no. of correct option that you have marked.
DAMS: What do you want to specialize in, why and where?
Dr Shubhra:
Internal medicine, hopefully at PGI Chandigarh. Because it’s the most basic subject which covers everything.

DAMS: Which teachers in DAMS influenced you most and what do you like about DAMS and would recommend to your juniors?
Dr Shubhra:
The T & D question & answer as discussion are good.
