DAMS: We appreciate the fact that preparing for an extremely competitive exam must be really challenging. During your preparation, did you ever doubt your ability to succeed in it?

There were times when I felt I may not be able to do it but I got over soon. Once we start studying well it gives a positive feedback to do even better. So that keeps me going.

Dr.Akriti:
For theory, Pharma-GRG, Patho & PSM-Arvind Arora, Radio-Sumer Sir’s Book, Opthal-Ruchi Rai Mam’s Book, AMit Ashish for Medicine & Surgery Plus 10yrs volumes.

For MCQs Revision, volumes atleast 10yrs are the best specially in last days. I found Amit Ashish Surgery & Medicine books very helpful for revision. Rest it all depends on how fast we can complete the syllabus & start revision.

DAMS : How important you think was DAMS in your preparation ?
Dr.Akriti:
Last yr, I lacked concepts in Physio, Paeds, ENT, Radio, Opthal. These subjects in DAMS are covered as well that I found a lot of diff in performance. All the subjects esp surgery are taught extremely well.
DAMS: What do you think is the better way of preparation between selective, intensive study and wide, extensive study? What did you choose as your style of studying?
Dr.Akriti:
I find selective & smart study the best. In the constraint of time we have to decide what to study from where. Deciding this wins half the battle.
DAMS: Indian PG entrances are highly competitive so to compete them students end up in appearing in multiple PG exams , kindly extend your views on this and also their pros and cons of appearing in multiple PG entrances .
Dr.Akriti:
Multiple PG entrances put us in lot of stress. Its better to appear for one exam with full zeal.
DAMS: Which subjects did you focus on?
Dr.Akriti:
Paeds, Patho, Radio, Pharma, Opthal.
DAMS: What was your strategy for the exam day? How many questions did you attempt and why?

I appeared for exam just as I used to appear for tests. The aim was to cool temperament & have patience. I attempted all 180 questions because I believe attempting more gives better chances of success.
DAMS: What do you want to specialize in, why and where?
Dr.Akriti:
I want to specialize in Radio hopefully delhi.
DAMS: Which teachers in DAMS influenced you most and what do you like about DAMS and would recommend to your juniors?
Dr.Akriti:
Naming first few of them would not be right. All have contributed a lot.
To name a few Dr.Sumer Sethi, ENT Sir, Paeds Sir and Opthal Mam were of tremendous help.
Best part about DAMS is friendly environment and that the teachers are always ready to help. I would definitely recommend my juniors for DAMS.
