Quite a large number of MCQs appear in PG medical and paramedical competitive examinations in this subject. Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) test a candidate`s ability to apply his knowledge gained during regular class work in the subject. 

Framing a questions paper based on MCQs is time consuming and evaluation of answers is not subjective and biased but on based on merit. Several universities now-a-days are adopting MCQ pattern for their examination system. This system of evaluation can be computerized and human bias can be eliminated to a greater extent. The Medical Council of India in their latest recommendations on the medical education and examination have stipulated that part of the question paper should be objective type based.
