Are you Attending TNPSC Interview 

1. Dress formally. 

A plain or stripped shirt with Plain Pants, Tie and Shoe are good for the men. No Jeans and T Shirts Please. If you go with a T Shirt that says "hit me", the interviewer may do that (with your marks). The time tested attire for ladies is the saree. Some say that Cotton sarees are better. 

2. Reach the Destination in time. This is a very important point to note. To fumble and search for your certificates and hall tickets is going to do no good for your cause.

3. In most cases, the interviewer in the centre of the panel (the chairman) will be a non medical man (TNPSC Member or from IAS cadre) and the most important fact is that the marks will be often with him/her. So no matter how well you answer the rest (subjects) if you "irritate" the chairman (with your GK performance) you are in trouble 

4. Please wish a Good Morning or Afternoon and for heaven sake do that with both your hands in a "prayer posture" and then sit only after you are asked to sit. There have been instances where candidates have just told good morning and the interviewer told replied to them that the manner in which the candidate had wished is the procedure for wishing colleagues and to wish seniors he/she has to wish like this (there was a demonstration) and the interview result was what we expected

5. In most cases your hands will be free (from certificates and other files) and hence a proper “வணக்கம்” is not a problem

Target Professional Growth / Post Graduation – a helping hand to the hands that heal
Introduction
Target Professional Growth / Post Graduation – a helping hand to the hands that heal

It seems like a couple of weeks ago when you packed your pens and pencils to write your school final year. After that you wrote an entrance, waited anxiously for the results and when you got the cherished MBBS seat you were so proud that you loudly proclaimed that to every one you knew – your school teachers, your relatives, your neighbors and even your parent’s colleagues.  The awe created by the first impression of the vast medical college campus, the huge library, seniors moving with coats, seeing a dead body and then dissecting it was soon followed by the seemingly never ending tours, movies, parties, functions, exams, internship duties and then the final day of your undergraduate life. Life was so well for each one of us. During our entire expedition from Anatomy to Internship we were well informed and always knew what to expect and what to do. We were told what is anterior and what is rostral by the tutors in anatomy. We were told about the slide kept for pathology by the skilled assistant. We came to know the hotel serving the best chicken from our seniors. The status of our attendance for the afternoon lecture class (or the lack of it) could be gathered from the department clerk. The name of the likely examiner can be heard from the college office and his preferred questions collected from a post graduate in his unit.

In spite of coming to a new town for college education, you were never at loss as there was some one to answer your question – whether it is academic or social or regarding the locality. There was help every where. When you had a flat tyre in your bike and was stranded between the hospital and hostel, it was a matter of minutes before some one passing in that road noticed it and duly informed the nearest mechanic. There was help and guidance every where and all your questions were answered instantly. All your problems were solved by some one else – even the incidence/prevalence problem in your SPM practical exam was solved by the assistant professor!! The questions where you were found want of answers were the ones asked by your professors like Causes of Hemoptysis in Mitral Stenosis and the Difference between Stage II and Stage III of Carcinoma Ovary.

And they were golden days indeed…… but the reality is that those days are gone….

There comes a phase in every medicos life when one is found wanting for guidance.  At this time you need guidance. You need comfort. You need some one to clear your doubts. Your school classmates are settled. Your brothers and sisters (even your younger brother or sister who studied computers) are settled. You have read for almost 6 years and have to read again for the PG Entrance Examination. You are alone in a remote place and cannot afford group study. It is for you we have started this site
