Best PG Entrance Coaching - Opinion Poll Results

PG Times in association with AcrossPG conducted the survey for selecting the Best Medical PG Coaching Institute in Dec 2012-Jan 2013 (Best PG Entrance Coaching - Opinion Poll).

Here are the highlights of the survey:
  • We received many votes in the survey, from various medical colleges of all states, ranging from batches 2000 to 2006. 
  •  Received votes for more than seven PG Coaching Institutes from across the country including Bhatia, DAMS, IAMS, Speed PG Institute, MIMS Calicut, MEDPGTHRISSUR and others. 
  • Many students were in favour that rigorous self-study is important if NEET happens, and coaching is useful only with self-study.

How the result is calculated?
  • We have calculated the results by counting votes from only unique IPs to remove bias from multiple votes casting.
  • An effective score is calculated institute-wise from the total votes submitted. This is to remove any bias occurred due to difference in number of votes for each institute.
  • The effective scores are then compared under 4 broad categories – Faculty, Study Material, Tests and Effectiveness for NEET PG.

Delhi Academy of Medical Sciences occupied the top position followed by Dr Bhatia Medical Coaching Institute.

Category wise comparisons:

DAMS excelled in Faculty, IAMS in Quality of Study Material, Bhatia tops in Quality of Tests, whereas NEET effective coaching is marginally shared by DAMS and Bhatia.

Some Comments by Participants: 

1. “There is no substitute for self study, whatever coaching you join it will help only if you urself work hard”
2. “Classes usually have one drawback that in some batches major subjects are taken last which is detrimental with exams nearing.....”
3. “Few teachers of Dbmci like ENT, Eye, Radio faculty were not teaches us properly, need to re-evaluation. Some tests were not like NEET exam. There was long Q of 4-5 lines but in exam one liner was asked.”
4. “Bhatia’s tests were good for AIIMS but too tough for NEET. Overall explanations are sufficient.”
5. “DAMS Exclusive club is the Best thing happening in the market for PG preparation. Faculty is always there to solve our doubt. This gives damsonian an unparalleled edge over the other institutes. Very much impressed with DAMS Delhi.”
6. “DAMS has good students support throughout the year. It was helpful in preparation. Though need to improve the quality of tests and explanations of questions. Although online NLTs are a good addition to the course, they helped a lot for practising for computer based NEET exam.”
7. “Speed Coaching kinda missed the mark with the new neet exam, though couldnt blame them.. none were really expecting it.. they gave too much importance in teaching hi fi fundas in the hope that we were thorough with the basics... but it was the basics that were asked and too with so many confusing options... they may change the tactics this year.. Good faculty-medicine,surgery,physio/biochem(taken by the same madam),micro Average/poor-ent, forensic medicine, anaesthesia”
8. “MIMS - Good for candidates living in & around Calicut, as facilities to stay for outstation candidates not available.”
