Dr. Sambuddha Dhar:  
Selective intensive study

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. Sambuddha Dhar:
I appeared for five exams...PGI, AIIMS, JIPMER, NEET, DNB....one back up for the other....i guess preparing for multiple exams and writing the same...increases our confidence and preparation...because many a time questions from one exam gets repeated in some other...

DAMS: Which subjects did you focus on?
Dr. Sambuddha Dhar:
1st and 2nd year subjects...Anesthesia...as these subjects are more memory based!!!!So revising them is very important to retain them!!!

Dr. Sambuddha Dhar:
I thought I’ll not leave any!!!but still I had to leave three as about them i had no idea...but i think i should not have attempted so many!!!got quite a few negatives....much more than people below my rank....so i wrongly strategized for JIPMER....

DAMS: What do you want to specialize in, why and where?
Dr. Sambuddha Dhar:
Will most likely take up ent or surgery....depending on availability....eagerly waiting for NEET results...till then deciding anything is difficult..

Dr. Sambuddha Dhar:
Sumer sir, Surgery’s sir, ENT’s sir, Paeds’s sir, anatomy sir, Physiology mam...were extraordinary!!!Most striking feature about dams was they are very student friendly......i would definitely recommend DAMS to my juniors....
