Students will be notified of the updated schedule once the classes commence.
At the end of the coaching programme, revision classes will be scheduled to keep the students prepared and ready for the final examination.

Answer: To avoid overburdening on the faculty member and reduce the repetition of the same faculty member, 18 FMGE experts & professors have been included in the FMGE coaching programme. Most of these FMGE experts are associated with preparing the FMGE question banks and are authors of renowned FMGE guide books. This gives our faculty an edge over the others as they are more ingrained with the FMGE pattern and FMGE syllabus. Out of 18, 2 of the FMGE experts will come in, especially to deal with the revision of the batch.
Question Number 5: Will there be any mock tests or practise tests during the coaching?
Answer: Yes, one of the key features of KingsFMGE is its regular mock tests and practice tests. There will be an exam conducted after every subject. The questionnaire will come from the doctors who are creating the fMGE question banks. These questions will be more clinical-based as per the requirement. The exam will follow the pattern of the actual exam. After each subject is conducted 2-3 exams will be conducted. for continuous revision because it’s not easy to crack FMGE. The portion is vast, so we require brushing up all the subjects regularly so we don’t forget the initial subjects taught at the beginning. Some subjects will be taught at the end, especially the major subjects. For continuous practice, we are creating this format of conducting regular tests and exams.

Question Number 7: Can a student stay on campus and pursue the online FMGE coaching course?
Answer: As of now, since Govt has not relaxed any restrictions on the lockdown, the campus opening is very much subject to the situation. However, we understand that the environment one can get on the campus for preparing for this crucial exam is second to none. Hence, we are trying our utmost and striving the hardest to ensure the campus opens at the earliest. Once the campus is open, students are more than welcome to come, stay & study in their comfort place.
All in all, a student can stay on campus and continue to pursue online classes.
Question Number 8: If the pandemic persists, will the online mode of classes continue?
