Medical costs are on the top our list. This includes hiring medical experts to contribute and revise Medical PG topics. Medical PG entrance national experts with experience as examiners contribute to the mock tests and H-Y-Ts. The frequency of High Yield Topic (H-Y-T) articles will increase dramatically in the coming months. 

There is a definite increase in spending on candidate support. WhatsApp chat group organisers, telephone contacts, regular article emails, regular Facebook free MCQs, regular blog updates & reminders, medical mentor, chat and email technical support are planned to increase in the coming year. 

Android lollipop upgrade is available for G2M Smart on google play. New app versions are planned for the coming year. G2M owns a dedicated server in Washington DC (US). This is necessary to support the increasing demands of G2M. A powerful server is needed to support thousands of statistical calculations in a minute. This keeps the site fast to download and use. More modifications to the G2M website interface is planned including a new variation of H-Y-Ts called ‘Capsules’. G2M will remain on the edge of innovation and invest all profits in further development. We have also brought down the cost of full site access from nearly Rs 7000/- in 2014 to Rs 3800/- in 2015 (currently called Platinum Access). More participation helps to bring the cost down.  We thank you for being a G2M candidate.
