OPN: Please share your brief story after internship till the PG success day.

Dr Ashok: After finishing my 2 yr scholarship contract, I gave my immediate PG exam, there I was selected to pursue my dream, I joined Dhulikhel Hospital in Department Of Orthopedics. After four months of residency i was selected in Loksewa. I left Dhulikhel to be close to general people in the queue of government hospital (that is an eternal joy) and opted for Loksewa. After 2 years of Loksewa service i appeared in IOM, appeared in counselling but did not opted the seat as i could not get my desired subject. Then, after that I appeared in BPKIHS exam, and got this result. Due to poor time management i missed answering 10 questions that I knew correctly but even then the result was good, so happy that this was possible.


OPN: How much dedicated time you paid for preparation? Was it a self study?

Dr Ashok: For 3 months i was totally devoted to preparation, almost 12hrs a day. Before that it was hard to get free time for study as I was working in periphery and carrying out administrative (Health administrator in municipality) as well as clinical job. But there too, my staffs and mates helped me a lot, especially Dr Milan Sedhai, Dr Suraj Ghimire and Dr Sunita Devkota. I owe them a lot.


OPN: How tough are entrance exams these days? How should an aspirant choose a smart way to excel?

Dr Ashok: Exams are always tough but attitude matters. I left the residency that I already joined, that too in renowned institution like Dhulikhel, with the aim to serve the poor and needy under government service. But i always believed 'I will try hard and get however difficult'. God also helps those who help themselves. Thank God, that was proved.


OPN: What are the resources you used for entrance preparation?

Dr Ashok: Theory: Pathoma Pathology for USMLE, Goljan Pathology, First Aid USMLE; MCQs: Mudit Khanna AIPGMEE, Sharad Chandra.


OPN: What advices would you like to give to future PG aspirants?

Dr Ashok: Just believe that u can do it, work hard, u will get it. Yes, exam is luck but luck comes only to those who work hard.


OPN: 1 month before exam, what shall students focus on?
