Repeating PG entrance exam

"I'm a PG aspirant... This is my third year of PG preparation. I lost all interest in medicine. I've lost all hope too. I'm just tired of trying. I don't know who to talk to. I don't know how you get so much passion to write your blogs. I don't how to study also."

I understand that giving an exam for the third time must be really frustrating and tiring.

So my advice to you is - Make sure you prepare so well this time that it's your last attempt and that you get whichever post graduation seat you desire. Study real hard, no excuses.

It's natural that you tend to lose interest in learning repetitive facts. Maybe you should try hunting for new ideas, new perspectives and gain a different understanding of old concepts?
Google about facts you've learnt earlier. This time, instead of memorizing, think of why.
Question everything - Why does this muscle cause that movement? Why does sickle cell anemia cause leukocytosis? Why does phenytoin produce vitamin B9 deficiency?
Trust me, questions and curiosity will awaken an unexplored passion in you - The one you lost in studying the same things over and over again.
Also, you should try joining a super competitive study group. People around you tend to inspire you and push you further. So I recommend studying with a bunch of really hardworking and smart people who want to clear the exam this year.
Reminds me of the two quotes I love:
"You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with." - Jim Rohn
"If you're the smartest person in your group, then you need a new group." - Les Brown

My passion for writing blogs comes with the same two ideas - I'm curious and inquisitive. And when I find answers, I like to share them. The blog, is my huge study group of sorts. People are always discussing and commenting new things on the blog, which keeps me going! I study, I blog has become my routine. 

You can always talk to me. I'm sorry that I'm a bit late in replying to you (I've been super busy with some things myself.) 

I think that hope is the one thing you must never lose. There's always hope. So, I hope you get your passion for medicine back. I hope you figure out how to study this year. I hope you clear the exam soon. I hope.

  1. A maximum of how many attempts are allowed in each Indian PG exam ? Like state PG (Maharashtra), AIPG, PGI, NIMHANS and all ?

    1. I have no idea. I asked people, some say as many as you like, others say three only.
