Here is the Experience of FCPS Part 1 Surgery and Allied 31 December 2015 shared by passing candidate of 31 December 2015.
Aslam o alikum.
SHORTEST WAY TO FCPS-1
Friends ALHAMDULILLAH I have cleared fcps-1 surgery in 3rd attempt and I m going to share my experience.
#1. first of all u offer prayers 5 times a day and pray for ur success. Believe me there z no FALAH without SALAH.
#2. Don’t tempt to appear in exam without full prep. Trust me if u fail once it will make u upset, depress, to the extent that u may even think of not giving exam. It creates a vicious circle of failure due to depression. I my self have faced same situation.
#3. Those who have failed. Its my humble request Plz plz plz forget about ur failure. Otherwise u won’t b able to achieve ur goal.
#4. U know very well about books but plz plz complete ur syllabus This was my biggest mistake. I appeared twice in exam without completing syllabus and failed. Finally I had to complete it. This will bring a lot of confidence and u won’t need any errata. U will make ur own errata. U will know correct options even b4 reading whole question. ANOTHER IMP THING ESPECIALLY FOR SURGERY STUDENTS. IF POSSIBLE WATCH ACLAND’S VIDEO ATLAS. IT WILL MAKE UR CONCEPT OF ANATOMY.
#5. MCQS MCQS MCQS. I have emphasized on it bcoz this is only way to clear part 1. Do mcqs from mini snell, brs fizio, brs patho with EXPLANATION as this will cover 5 topics (all five options)
The chapter u complete do its mcqs from rabia ali. Then if u have ample time then go for chandkian and asim&shoaib. If not then rabia ali 4th ed. will suffice.
NOW I AM TELLING U THINGS WHICH I DID IN 3RD ATTEMPT AND GOT SUCCESS ALHAMDULILLAH smile emoticon
#6. Go to files section of this group fcps 2005-2010. Download past papers. Esp all in one past papers. Besides u will find many other shortcuts eg pearls for surgeons. Controversial mcqs. Cpsp questions etc. And also u will find FIRST AID chapter wise Q&A by DR NOOR. MUST DO IT.
#7. THE MOST IMP THING IS GO TO SEARCH OPTION IN THIS GROUP. TYPE KEY WORDS OF CONTROVERSIAL QUESTIONS AND SEE PREVIOUS DISCUSSIONS. DON’T WASTE TIME ON UPLOADING THOSE QUESTIONS. AS THIS WILL WASTE A LOT OF TIME. AND U MAY NOT GET A SINGLE COMMENT. U WILL FIND MANY COMMENTS BUT WHOSOEVER HAS GIVEN RIGHT ANSWER HAS EXPLAINED IT TOO. THESE CONTROVERSIAL QUESTIONS ARE THE MOST FAVORITE QUESTIONS OF CPSP & CARRY HIGHEST WEIGHTAGE.
#8. Take ur time. U know very well about urself. On average 2-3 months r required for full prep. About job its ur own choice. I feel comfortable with job as it solves financial issues.
#9. PRAY PRAY AND PRAY. I have written it again as this is the matter of hardwork & prayers. If one of them is missing u won’t achieve ur goals.
#10. Finally BEST OF LUCK to all of u. INSHALLAH u will succeed.
