In this exclusive conversation with PrepLadder, Dr. Muneet shares the plan that worked for him to achieve this remarkable rank in NEET MDS.
Hello, please tell us something about yourself.
Hello. My name is Dr. Muneet Kapoor. I graduated from Indira Gandhi Government Dental College and Hospital, Jammu.
I secured AIR-62 in NEET MDS 2017.
What do you think is the correct approach to study for NEET MDS? Only MCQs or Theory + MCQs?
Theory is the main approach to crack NEET MDS. You should also practice MCQs on daily basis to remain in touch with different types of questions that can appear in the exam.
When should the preparation ideally be started?
The Ideal time to start the preparation is during the Internship period.
Please list the books you studied for each subject.
On the matter of books, I would say that all books are good.
Just make one book as your master book and you should be thorough with that book.
I had studied following books:
- Dental Pulse - Main book
- Neeraj Wadhawan
- Target MDS
- Gowri Shankar
- Amit Ashish
- Mudit Khanna
Since we were not aware of NEET pattern, therefore, I had to refer to all these books.
Have you attempted AIPGDEE previously? If yes, what did you do different this year that lead to your success.
Since I belong to state, Jammu and Kashmir, our state is exempted from all India Quota.
Yes, I had appeared in AIPGDEE last year in order that I can appear for SSC Army Interview and attended that Interview too.
The thing which I did different this year was that my main focus was on revision this year.
How big is the role of practice and revision while preparing for NEET MDS and how much time should be dedicated for it?
Since Revision is the main key, therefore, follow your own study schedule with full dedication and yes, you need only one seat.
Stay focused on your goals.
Did PrepLadder play a part in your success? If yes, how?
Yes, PrepLadder indeed played a vital role.
PrepLadder’s ‘Daily Free Quiz’ made me aware of different types of new MCQs.
Did you use a time table/study plan to keep your preparation on track?
Yes, definitely. I followed my study schedule.
I dedicated maximum 6-7 hours with full concentration to preparation each day.
I daily revised the stuff that I read according to time table.
This definitely made a difference.
Were you a topper or a mediocre student during graduation?
I was the Second Topper of my batch.
List the most difficult and easiest subjects for you?
Medical portion was tough for me while the Dental subjects were Easy.
One mistake that you believe everyone must avoid while preparing for NEET MDS?
Focus on Non-clinical subjects equally.
Majority of students concentrate mainly on the Clinical subjects.
Therefore, my advice to students is to focus on all Clinical and Non- Clinical subjects equally.
Some last tips for our readers preparing for NEET MDS.
Revision is the key. Stick on to it.
