Idea! What about doing 5 subjects?

guys what about doing 5 subjects at a time??my exam is in september.so around 130 days i left with.i have started to do 5 subjects a time to have maximise interaction with every subject.for example i have assigned 9 am to 3pm for memorizing stuff like pharma and micro each 3 hours..then i take rest of 1 or 2 hours.then till 9 pm,i do biochem.then from 10pm to 3am i do patho and physio.just like last 2 nights,i have been doing acid base disorders.today night 3 hours,i will do mcqs of those disorders.guys i have adopted this method to give more interaction to each subject till my exam.but still i have time to change it.plz tell me pros and cons of this study plan so that i may change it soon enough if its wrong.urgent advice needed plz.i am reading around 12 hours.

Depends on whether it is working for you, how much you have covered already, how much is left to be done and how your basics are already.
If you are doing well enough on your Qbanks then you are on right track probably.
I plan to give exams in late Aug to early Sep so I have similar time left but I keep modifying my schedule as I don't seem to have hit the right formula yet. Point is, you know best about what works for you. Follow the schedule for a couple of weeks and then modify if it doesn't work so well.

Another suggestion: If you are doing multiple subjects at a time, do them organ system wise so that you can integrate you knowledge.
Hope that helps.
