I am so happy that I got selected in Elsevier Basic Sciences Olympiad Quiz. It provided me an excellent opportunity for representing my College at National level. I want to thank Elsevier a lot for arranging such a quiz. As only the top 20 students were selected among thousands it was definitely good competition between them. Elsevier quiz provided me the incentive to revise 1st-year subjects. And definitely getting 3rd prize boosted my confidence and increased my thirst of knowledge. I am short of words for thanking Elsevier.
EBSO provided me a wonderful opportunity to study and revise my basic subjects, which really helped me in my second year and third-year subjects too. Since it was an Olympiad I prepared really well for it and came runner up which was really appreciated by my seniors and teachers.
I am really very grateful to Elsevier for organizing such a grand Pan India Quiz. Probably I would not have got this exposure anywhere else had I not attended this quiz. It gave me a chance to revise the 1st year subjects in detail which would surely help me in preparing myself for NEET PG. And the success that I got in the quiz has had a big impact on my life. I was praised by all the Seniors and Faculty members. It has surely opened a new avenue of opportunities for me. It will give me an extra edge over others whenever it comes to any selection process for any quiz competition in our college.
For the preparation of EBSO, I stuck to the books which I had read in the first year of MBBS which included -Gross anatomy and Clinical anatomy by DrVishram Singh -Biochemistry by Dr. UG Satyanarayana -Guyton and Hall Physiology, Southeast Asian edition All books were from Elsevier publications. My preparation for EBSO helped me to brush up my first-year subjects and helped me read and understand me better which helped me in my post-graduate entrance exam. Impact of EBSO When I came back the next day everybody in my college congratulated me and were curious to know how I prepared and what was my experience. I also helped and guided my juniors on how to prepare and they were able to grab all the top 3 positions in this year's EBSO grand finale.
