NEET MDS exam is accompanied by intense competition for only a few All-India Government seats.

Aspirants keep on trying for years, yet only a few are able to grab a seat in a prestigious Government Institution.

The reasons for failure can be manifold. Yet, the most obvious reason for the failure of majority of candidates is following an Incorrect Preparation strategy and relying on ‘Hard Work’ instead of ‘Smart Work’.
