TN PG Medical Entrance Examination 2003
The following questions are compiled from the memory by the PG Aspirants of Tirunelveli Medical College who attended the Tamil Nadu PG Medical Entrance 2003 on 27th April 2003 at Chennai. The questions are not framed fully because, in many cases, it is not needed and in few cases we were not able to recollect. The same can be said of choices. There are a few controversies and as with any Objective question compilation, here too, we don’t claim that this is an error proof work and contributions and corrections are welcome.

We have done this collection following a conclusion after contemplation, consideration and consultation and you can always mail in your correction, contribution, botheration and suggestion about any clarification, commission and omission about this examination compilation!!!

It is understood that those who are reading this are knowledgeable enough to comprehend that these questions and answers are in no way related to the Official Question Bank and the Official key that may be used for valuation. The aim of this work primarily for the benefit of the future exams and not to brood over one or two questions!!! The questions are written from the memory of the examinees and hence there is a chance that this is not 100 percent accurate! We would like to distance ourselves from any confusion arising out of these Questions (and Answers) and in the unforeseen instance of a controversy arising out of these Questions (and Answers), we are not responsible for it. If, however, you find a slip of the finger (mistake) please post in your views in the message board, so that it is corrected. Another aim of posting is to inculcate a habit of healthy discussion………
