Visual, auditory, read/write, and kinesthetic questionnaire was used which measures dimension of learning styles and approaches. RESULTS: Majority of medical students have preferred (32%) for Kinesthetic modality; 26% for Aural; Visual 21% and Reading/Writing 21%. The majority (53%) preference for Bimodal modality; 41% for Unimodal; 5% for Trimodal and 1% for Multimodal.
