Hi!

Newbie here. Can somebody please explain what is meant by 'high-yield' and 'low-yield'? And which subjects are high-yield and which ones are low-yield?

Thanks!

From my understanding, High-Yield refers to the information that will certainly appear on the exam and assumes you have a strong foundation. Low-Yield would be the opposite.

Thank you for your reply. You are right, I have been digging around and have found out that high-yield are concepts/subjects that are more frequently asked in the exam whereas the opposite for low-yield.
High-Yield: Pathology, Pharmacology, Physiology, Neuroanatomy, Microbiology
Low-Yield: anatomy, embryology, genetics, behavioral, biochemistry
