    Greetings from Vydehi Institute of Medical Sciences and Research Centre!

    To achieve excellence in medical education, Vydehi Institute of Medical Sciences and Research Centre, the first Medical College in India has launched a concept of “INTENSIVE REVISION CLASSES” for the repeaters of 1st year MBBS phase I from 3rd April, 2013.The instruction solely does not only help as a remedial measure, but will also bridge the gap through “Intensive Revision Classes”. Teams of experts are formed and lists as well, as scripts are made for delivering concepts.

    These classes will summarize all the concepts that were studied in the previous classes. The basic objective of this initiative is to create consolidated learning material that students can revise during their revision.

    The special revision classes is the most important phase of the examination preparation and it is of grave concern if your ward does not attend these classes.

    Kindly reinforce your efforts as parents to ensure 100% attendance at this vital stage and please accept no excuses from your ward. Failure to attend these classes will attract stringent punishment in terms of not allowing the student to take the university examination.

    With warm regards,
