    I checked the website on Monday and had a big fail come up, but today I got a letter saying I'd passed, with 64% and a passmark of 60%. Anyone else had different results? I can't check the website again as it seems to have crashed!

    maz Guest

    Is anyone else willing to state their results? I got 66% (pass mark 60%). Is this a GOOD pass or did I only JUST pass (for example, do lots of people score in the 80s etc. or are most in the 60s).

    The website said I passed too, so no cruelty to me luckily. That's a horrible to happen, and a nasty few days for nothing, but I bet you're feeling better now!

    I admit I'm not from India. Hope it's OK to post this question here - it looks like a good forum...

    adrenal medulla produces epi and norepinephrine.metanephrine test is the latest to dx pheochromcytoma

    initially observation is justified in ITP even platelet count is below 20000 and no event of hge

    centally acting drugs are clonidine, methyldopa,guanabenz and guanfecine

    pneumococcal exposure can be managed by rifampicin prophylactic, a single dose of ceftriaxone shall also do
