How to study

  • It is too hectic to go back to college days and read all the textbooks mentioned above to clear the exam. YOU REALLY DON’T HAVE TO GO THROUGH ALL THE BOOKS MENTIONED ABOVE. That is why we are here to help. 

  • Gulf Exams are primarily focused on clinical knowledge including accurate diagnosis and treatment planning. This means it asks questions mainly from clinical subjects only.

  • But we would not recommend preparing by yourself unless you know how to prepare. We guide you by specifically teaching only the topics that is important for the exams, thus narrowing the vast study material, which in turn guarantees the pass percentage with lesser hard work.

  • If you are looking to clear the exam in the 1st attempt itself, you will need to prepare thoroughly for 3-4 months at least.

This is how you need to prepare:


  •  Step 1 - Brush through all the important topics subject-wise that we teach 

  • Step 2 - Solve subject-wise MCQs under the related topics 

  • Step 3 - Read more on it, if in need of better clarification 

  • Step 4 - Solve Recent MCQs 

  • Step 5 - Do Mock Exams to see if you are ready
