Hello, I am Sandeep Kumar. I did my Graduation from GDC rohtak and I secured rank 25 in NEET MDS 2017.

It depends on person to person. I think 8 hours preparation a day for 8 months is sufficient.

Have you attempted AIPGDEE previously? If yes, what did you do different this year that lead to your success.
Yes I attempted AIPGDEE in 2010 and got rank 74. This time I managed a better rank because of more relaxed study and coaching papers.
