PrepLadder congratulates Dr Sneha Pramod on securing Rank 33 in NEET MDS exam. We wish her all the best for her career and future ahead.
In this exclusive interview with PrepLadder, she shares the plan that worked for her to get an amazing Rank in NEET MDS.
Hello, please tell us something about yourself.
Hello, myself Sneha Pramod Bhavsar. I completed my graduation from Mgv's KBH DENTAL collage Nashik (Maharashtra). I secured rank 33 in NEET MDS.
What do you think is the correct approach to study for NEET MDS? Only MCQ's or Theory+MCQ's?
I think both theory and MCQ's are equally important for NEET. If you know theory well and have your concepts clear from standard text books then you can answer any multiple choice question irrespective of its difficulty level.
When should the preparation ideally be started?
Ideally it should be started from beginning of internship.
Please list the books you studied for each subject.
Always use Standard text books for reference whenever you are in doubt. Basic MCQ books are Dental pulse, AIPGDEE book by Neeraj Wadhwan. Amit Ashish’s medical questions book.
Have you attempted AIPGDEE previously? If yes, what did you do different this year that lead to your success.
No, this was my first attempt.
How big is the role of practice and revision while preparing for NEET MDS and how much time should be dedicated for it?
Revision is the key to success. You should plan your study in such a manner that you can revise each subject 4 to 5. This helps you to know where you are lacking.
Did PrepLadder play a part in your success? If yes, how?
Yes definitely. It helped me a lot. PrepLadder’s daily quiz and grand mock tests guided me a lot. It helped me to get familiarize with the exam pattern which was totally new for us.
Did you use a time table/study plan to keep your preparation on track?
Yes I prepared a time table for myself. Following a proper time table helped me from wasting my precious time. I would say that you must first plan your year according to 20+ subjects and then make a monthly plan followed by a time table of a week. Then in the end plan your day for the particular subject.
Were you a topper or a mediocre student during BDS?
I was a topper in 2nd year.
List the most difficult and easiest subjects for you.
Most difficult subject for me was community dentistry.
Pedodontics and orthodontics were easy for me.
One mistake that you believe everyone must avoid while preparing for NEET MDS.
Never be in a hurry to finish a subject. Take your time and understand the subject as if you do so then you will not need to mug up things if you understand them properly.
