selective study is v.imp as in last days near exam one has to revise all the stuff.
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 .

As we all know now a days concept of multiple exams has been changed...there is common entrance exam NEET...because of lot many controversies on NEET this year, let’s see how much this trend prevails!!!!!!
DAMS: Which subjects did you focus on?

short subjects take less time to cover and really are very scoring and I focused more on these...long subjects like surgery, medicine consume so much time and every time questions from these subjects are totally new, so these new are same for all students..
DAMS: What was your strategy for the exam day? How many questions did you attempt and why?

Dr. Sonam Singla:
In DNB I will opt for Radiodiagnosis but final decision depends on NEET results..Fingers crossed!!
