Thanks santosh...I believe in the notion that being a learner leads a person to a bigger victory than an already victorious person...That is why, I appreciate your idea of calling yourself a learner...What you say?

It might me... > I would like to be called as a learner at any point of time at any stage. I adapted it myself after joining this professional pharma community. > I do believe that besides having luck and talent, being a learner at all time really fetches to great heights. Thanks for your compliment!

Dear Shubhranshu Gupta Very good. You are giving very good information. Many students ask us for information regarding these issues and we cannot tell much. I am happy you are giving this information. Some students, as they go through the B.Pharm course, act in a demotivated maner, which is not good for them. Information such as yours will help them in getting motivated and rejuvinated. My problem with students taking GRE/ TOFFEL is this: till that point they are good students, they attend classes regularly and perform well in classes and exams. From the moment they start attending coaching classes, they start bunking classes and start attending only practical classes (as though they can get along even if they do not attend theory classes. This practise becomes contagious; others who are not bothered about GRE also start bunkng classes and when a good number starts bunking, it has a demotivating effect on the teachers. If students can take their GRE/TOFFEL exams without causing disturbance in their B.Pharm schedule; it will be good for everyone concerned. Vijaya Ratna

Thank you madam. This is the real scenario which even I've seen. Though it depends from student to student, but what I personally feel on this issue is that seldom bunking is acceptable because there are instances when a good deal of clash occurs between GRE classes and regular college lectures. That bunking becomes insignificant if we are determined to cover up the lectures we had missed on ourselves as immediately as possible; preferably on the same day of missed lecture. This would definitely help because I'm saying this out of my own experience since I had to bunk few classes too. But yes! this method wont help if this practice goes above limit. In that condition, the balance is disturbed and we suffer loss in both GRE as well as regular college studies.

excellent information we are thankful to you and can you tell me role of English in GRE and TOEFL?
Shubranshu Gupta's picture

Yep sure..TOEFL tests the flair of a student in writing,speaking,reading and listening english language. While, GRE tests english, math and analytical skills of the student. However, the difficulty level of testing english in GRE is much much higher than TOEFL and it is not all easy to under GRE english. Hence, a student needs really a heavy deal of practice work while preparing for GRE. Also, from this year, the syllabus of GRE has been changed. So,GRE got totally unpredictable from now on too!

Thank you very much for the reply.. And congratulations for your score... And do preparation from foreign author books is enough regarding subject wise? maths is really new subject to deal in pharmacy. What is its role?
Shubranshu Gupta's picture

Thank you... It doesnt matter till you have enough practice- may it be of foreign or indian origin...Just practice speaks..Practice as much as you can... However, take maths seriously as you would need statistics as the core part in research in pharmacy in your future...

Dear Shubhranshu, good pin points you gave. Thanks for sharing!!!!! Problems highlighted by Vijayaratna Mam are there as well as a major drawback is students aspiring for MS those who preparing for GRE or TOFEL forget that they have to learn pharma subject or core subject in MS also. Most of the students neglect basic syllabus and core concept matter and run behind GRE or TOFEL (language), but many find difficult after getting admission in MS. It is primary thing to be good enough in subject matter in which you are interested to do you further study I feel. Regards,

Thank you... That true that a person who has passed a tunnel should be taken as a guide. But a greater challenge is to leave a trail of ourselves than following a guide.. And that actually cedes success to a person... What you say??

The word "self" is a mightier one. For eg.self confidence,.We learn a lot with our deeds :)

Self remains the most dominant word responsible for success until it is accompanied by the word 'over'...I agree totally with you..

Hello Shubhranshu, you have rightly pointed out the importance of "clarity of goal". One definately should know about his/her strength and interests to persue any higher specialization in the field.
