NEET MDS 2021 Preparation Tips

NEET MDS is a single-window national-level entrance exam for admission to the post-graduate dental courses offered by the best colleges in the country. The syllabus of the exam is vast and candidates need to start their preparation as early as possible. The topics are from the BDS syllabus as prescribed by DCI. Here are some useful tips for preparation of NEET MDS exam.

Start Early

You need to start early to get through the exam. A month or two of reparation won’t help you. If MDS is your target, we suggest starting your preparation along with the BDS course. The subjects studied in the final year of the BDS programme have more weightage as compared to others. So, focus more on them. If you canot start your preparation during BDS, you must atleat start the NEET MDS preparation 8 to 10 months before the entrance exam.

Set Targets

Set daily, weekly, and monthly targets for exam preparation. You can divide topics according to their difficulty levels or marks weightage. Try to concentrate on the basic topics first and then move to other important topics. Setting targets is very important as you won’t be able to cover the entire syllabus without doing so within the given time.

Make Time-Table

After setting targets, make a time-table to achieve the same. Prepare a time-table that can be followed daily. Do not create long study sessions. Keep breaks of 10 to 15 minutes between study sessions. However, it is advised not to skip even a single day of study.

Right Study Material

The BDS course books are the best for MDS entrance exam preparation. There is no need to keep a pile of books and study material.

Solve Previous Year’s Question Paper -

Solve previous year’s question papers to keep a track of your preparation level. It also helps in identifying the strengths and weaknesses. The previous years’ question papers help in understanding the pattern, marking scheme, difficulty level of questions, etc. These papers and mock tests are the best way of evaluating your preparation and working on your mistakes.

Practice for Avoiding Negative Marking

There is negative marking in the exam and candidates must keep this in mind. To avoid negative marking, candidates must practice for not making any guesses and mark only those answers for which you are sure. It is advised to leave the questions unanswered rather than marking a wrong answer. It will reduce the overall score.
