But what exactly are these steps?

Sort out the subject matter in advance

With more than 14 subjects and 400 topics, it is indeed a herculean task to cover and remember the contents of the entire Dental PG MDS syllabus. Thus it is important to make use of selective learning and limit gazing too deep into the lesser important topics.

Divide syllabus on the basics of topics that have more weightage, topics which are tough, topics which are high yielding, and topics which can be covered easily. Set daily targets for your NEET MDS preparations. This way, aspirants can monitor their progress and would be able to cover the entire syllabus at a much faster rate, saving enough time for the revision. It is suggested to first clear the basic concepts and then go deeper into any important topics.

You can put topics in a tabulated form, their weightage, and approx. the number of days that will be required for the completion of a particular topic. This way it is easier for you to chart down your progress in a much efficient way.

We are also sharing the subject wise weightage for both sections of NEET MDS so that you can channelize and plan your preparation in accordance to that.

Practice MCQs as soon as you complete any topic

The next thing that you got to do is to start practicing multiple-choice questions as soon as you complete any topic. NEET PG MDS exam should not be approached in the way you prepare for your subjective exams. Remember, while preparing for an objective exam like NEET MDS, your preparation should also be objective. Practicing objective-based questions for NEET will not only help you develop familiarity with the latest MDS pattern but will also give a clear idea about your understanding of the topic.  It’s good if you are able to solve a good number of questions after completing the topic/subject. But if your score isn’t good then it is a clear indication that you need more work is required on that topic.

Start appearing early NEET MDS Mock Tests

No aspirants can do wonders in the NEET MDS exam after appearing in mock tests for a month. It is therefore important for you start giving mock tests in the early days of your preparation rather than getting enrolled in the last few days of your preparation. Mock tests will help you to avoid negative making, to manage time better, to develop confidence and most importantly to get familiar with real time exam experience. A good mock test series can prove to be a game-changer in your NEET MDS preparation. Always appear in mock tests from authentic sources else you will end up doing more harm to your PG preparation. Some sources which offer standard NEET MDS mock tests are PULP, NEET MDS Prep and Dental PG Prep. Another important thing, if you want to exponentially increase your score then analyze results of each mock test that you gave and apply these findings in your preparation plan as well.

Don’t skip revision

Revision notes are not only extremely helpful in the last few months before your Dental PG exams to revise the entire syllabus all over again but revision also play a vital role to strengthen your weaker topics. While revising, make sure that you dedicate more time to the topics in which you were not able to score during practice or mock tests. Once you are done with revising the concepts of these topics, it is time to re-practice these topics again to leave no stone unturned during your NEET PG MDS prep.

Medical Courses without NEET 

Refer to standard books and go through previous yearbooks

Whatever study material you refer to make sure that it aligns with your MDS syllabus and doesn’t contain unnecessary stuff.  Moreover, don’t keep jumping from one author to another. Too many cooks spoil the broth. Prefer quality and standard study material rather than accumulating tons of modules and books. Also, don’t forget to practice the previous year's questions from each topic. In case a similar question comes in the exam then you will be able to score without putting much effort.

Best NEET Mock Tests

During your NEET MDS preparations, one thing which is extremely important is to keep maintain balance. Give adequate rest to the mind and the body without hampering your Dental PG preparation. Be consistent and instead of following a strict timetable go for a more practical one.

No matter how harsh the situation gets, remember to keep your cool. Be optimistic and competent to handle pressure periods. The most important fact that you must remember is:

“Keeping your mind motivated and believing in yourself will accommodate you with your career and study plans”.

Give your best and success will be yours.

All the best!
