Well, in 2019, the Indian Government announced its decision to snip NEET PG, impendingly introducing a common national exam for all the MBBS students called NEXT or the National Exit Test, which is most probably to be implemented from 2022.
As per the news talks, NEXT is going to replace the NEET exam as well as the FMG Exam, which means if the MCQ exam part is clear, the aspirants will be eligible to join a PG Course and will also serve as licentiate exam for foreign medical graduates to practice post MBBS in India, respectively.
Countless views are subsequently seen regarding NEXT. While some are considering it as a BOON, that it is going to produce more skillful doctors, on the other hand, others are worried about its BANE, that it might act as an additional burden for all the aspiring students.
In all this dilemma, it is very clear that all aspiring students are extremely perplexed about the preparation of NEXT.
But you can always count on us for providing you some preparation strategies for the NEXT exam.
It is believed that in the NEXT exam, the main focus will be on clinical vignettes integrated with the basic applied sciences.
Somebody has very well said, “ARIE DE GEUS” which means “your ability to learn faster than your competitors might be the only sustainable competitive advantage.”
Studying is not all about sitting on a relaxed armchair or structured classroom learning,
- it is all about your willingness to experiment with new things,
- it is about pushing yourself to acquire capabilities,
- it is all about discomforting yourself from the comfort zone, and
- resist all the bias against doing new things.
Learning to understand the concepts and making connections to the prior knowledge of all the subjects including spaced repetitions of revision sessions; is all that you need for your preparation for the NEXT exam.
Medical sciences are all connected, clinical and non-clinical subjects. They are even logical. Grasping the foundations of biosciences is really helpful because if you have mastered anatomy, physiology, the pathophysiology of the disease, and the mechanism of action of the drugs, you can easily rule out the disease by advising investigations required and then suggesting the best treatment for the same.
Giving importance to basic subjects like anatomy. Physiology, biochemistry, pathology, pharmacology, and microbiology forms the base of your preparation.
Just have a focused approach and a proper study plan. You must first complete studying from the standard books. Some important topics of medicine which are must for clinical as well as theoretical point of view are as follows-
|UNIT NAME||IMPORTANT TOPICS|
|Multifocal atrial tachycardia vs A. Fib|
|CARDIOLOGY||AVNRT vs AVRT|
|CHF and Arrhythmia medications|
|Constructive pericarditis vs RCM|
|NEUROLOGY||Stroke syndromes & interventions|
|NCC vs Cerebral Toxoplasmosis vs Brain Tumors|
|ENDOCRINOLOGY||Drugs in DM|
|Anterior pituitary diseases|
|Conn vs Liddle|
|DKA vs Hypersmolar coma vs Lactic acidosis|
|Myxoedema coma vs Thyrotoxicosis periodic paralysis|
|GIT & HEMATOLOGY||CMV vs EBV vs Eosinophilic esophagitis|
|Pseudomembranous colitis vs UC|
|Blood cancer treatments|
|HEPATOLOGY||Hep B acute vs Chronic|
|PBC vs PSC|
|Hepato renal syndrome vs hepato pulmonary syndrome|
|Pulmonary embolism vs Fat embolism|
|P. Jiroveci pneumonia|
|Anti Synthetase syndrome|
|PAN vs GPA|
|ELECTROLYTE IMBALANCE||Magnesium imbalances|
|Acidosis correction formula|
|Hyponatremia subtypes & correction|
|Renal tubular acidosis|
|Immune-fluorescence kidney pathology|
These are some of the basic diseases which you all must be aware of and these topics should be crystal clear to you in all aspects.
Once the disease is clear to you, just understand the pathophysiology of the disease.
The study of PATHOPHYSIOLOGY of a disease means-
- understanding the clinical manifestations of a disease,
- analysis of disease.
- Through pathophysiology, you will be easily able to understand how and why the diseases are produced and
- what are their symptoms?
- It explains the history of a disease.
Once you are done understanding the fundamentals of pathology, means you are now aware of the disease from where it has arrived, how has the disease occurred, life cycle, sign and symptoms, and all the necessary investigations required have been made, so now you can easily go through your pharmacology to know and understand the mechanism of action of the drugs given to a particular disease.
PHARMACOLOGY makes you understand the interactions between drugs and living beings.
The sub-disciplines of pharmacology like Pharmacodynamics, Pharmacokinetics, Pharmacogenetics makes you understand the effects & mechanisms of drug interactions, movement of drugs throughout the body through absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion, and drug-induced allergies and toxicities, respectively.
Precision MEDICINE goals of customizing disease prevention and treatment strategies. To understand all things at a time, you need to integrate all subjects and not understand them separately, rather address it as a single topic. The best part of the integrated study is that your subjects are also covered and your basics and all details about the topic or disease are also covered.
Some important points that you have to keep in mind while preparing for NEXT EXAM are-
- STRENGTHEN YOUR BASICS:
The very first and foremost thing that you always have to keep in your mind while preparing for any exam is that you just have to strengthen your basics. Make your basics so much very clear to yourself so that you can answer any question whether it is asked directly or indirectly in anyways.

From now onwards, means for the NEXT EXAM, cramming of the topics would not work. You have to be crystal clear with the topics and subjects and have to think clinically.
Think you have been asked about any disease in the exam, so you just don’t have to judge the answer. Understand the pathology behind it and then the treatment is given.
And in this way only you will be able to solve a maximum number of questions.
