First year medical students were taught Anatomy, Physiology, and Biochemistry. The Medical Council of India (MCI) provides common syllabus and examination patterns throughout the country. The Tamil Nadu Dr. MGR Medical University (TNMGRMU) proposed new regulations modifying the MCI examination pattern. The main objective of this study was to assess the academic performance of 1st year MBBS students as per the MCI regulations and to compare the results with the TNMGRMU regulations.
