Helllos... I am not sure whether you all remember me. ?? .... Its me ..Suresh Shenvi here.. Remember those blogs..




Yeh… It was around 4 years back.. When I made an effort to pen down the thoughts from my life.. my entrance life.. and surprisingly .. I never thought it will reach so many.. I mean.. today it gave me an identity. The best things.. it showed the ray of hope for those who thought it will never happen.. I don’t expect all those who got a seat will remember me.. but I am thankful to god.. every single day.. Yeh.. I made a difference.:)

It has been quite some time since I wrote down something.. and I guess I will meet your expectations this time too. But I do feel that most of the things are much clearer now than how things were before few years back.. well.. one things hold true for sure…EYERYTHIING CHANGES EXCEPT CHANGE” J

Although I might be bit old in the field in of entrance now.. but even today I am still trying my best to show students the right way of preparing for the same. And. I am still in young anywayJ

I am not gonna tell you more about how to prepare about for MDS entrance. You can always google about it and I am sure you will find my blogs on many sites... but I will  surely try to explain  how things have been changing from past 5 years in the field of exams , to the fee structure.. and the attitude of the student too..


It has been quite some time.. or may be a year since the students have been wondering about National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) for Postgraduate

Dear friends.. I feel surprised when students ask me about the NEET... Well.. in a way they are right too.. but does the exams really matter at the start of preparation..I don’t think so.. if someone has read for whole year he will be strong enough to face any kind of change.. opportunity only dances with those who are already on the dance floor… are you on the dance floor?

I am sure .. there is lot many info on many website.. they all make you feel as if the NEET is something so different from any examination and inturn they make students feel more  stressed just after hearing about it..

Chalo.. lets make it simple ..NEET.. its almost similar like any  AIPG EXAMINATION which earlier used to include  seats of the government colleges.. but now.. the same result will be applicable for all the colleges all over India.. Yeh.. SINGLE CET.. its that simple. Basically it means that one exam for all the total MDS seats in the India.

 I do feel that its going to benefit in a lot many ways.. but it does have its  own disadvantages.. but when it comes to students.. Do you really think that’s gonna make a big difference in the success of the students in the field of  entrance.. I don’t.. Infact I feel it will be challenging to students.. it’s a new pattern.. single exam.. still the same reservation policy and higher fee structure. When is that gonna change??

For those who have read whole year.. do you really think  that  giving extra 2 – 3 exams will be more stressful.. I indeed feel that giving multiple exams will strengthen the way the student gonna think for next exams.. . that means you do have an option still if you don’t perform good  in one.. Which is quite good in a way.. there are many times where a students might not perform good or able to appear for that exams..  it does feel harsh to see one exam  sealing the fate of many. But we do need to understand that the same type of examination are conducted in the other fields.. but this will only help when all the things are well managed and well organized .. rather than just making it a big deal for any students and not providing them with any complete idea regarding the same.

I do feel that there are more challenges which needs to be addressed  like job opportunities, reservation aspect, financial support than just simplifying the exam pattern.

But one big advantage of conducting single cet is the uniformity  in the exam pattern.. we all need to agree for this fact for sure and I am sure.. the AIIMS institute has always been stood up for same and it will.. this time too. We have no doubt for the same.

But I don’t think there is any provision for challenging the questions here. Is there any?? . one will not get a question paper.. the advantage of COMED..KCET is no more found in NEET


I have been getting lot many mails. Lot many calls asking for the type of preparation for NEET.  we all should know that,, we are not from the future... nobody knows how it will be. A person will be lying a lot if he comments on  the examination pattern when no one has actually seen it once yet.. but one thing is for sure.. AIIMS gonna conduct it.. This does mean that it will be somewhat similar to the AIPG examination.

But  based on what  I have been reading or hearing.. the answer is YESSSSSSS. It needs a different kind of a approach.

Its gonna be quite similar to the  session wise exams on a computer. Remember that MANIPAL examination.. . its quite different feeling and students are not much well versed with the procedure Yet.. You don’t get much of a feel in answering the computer based examination which is quite a disadvantage.

But when it comes to the preparation aspect.. One should remember few points..

You Don’t have a second chance!!! What does this mean for a student.. ?? ..This means .. you can not  just read one book and go there.. and be a topper.. Believe me.. you cant.. As the exams will be session wise.. the paper will be set from a huge question bank..It wont be too much different from the normal examination.. That’s basically impossible.. they do have to keep in mind that students need to score atleast 50%.. atleast most of those students who will appear for it.. no one can shift too far from basics. Do expect around 60 % repeated question from books.. directly or indirectly. don’t even think of expecting a rank without entering the competition without  reading the old papers.. the whole entrance is based on one simple fact.. read .. and Remember

But is that enough??..

Believe me.. you gonna have lot many new questions there.. right from the textbooks.. Chill..don’t be scared here.. no one can go back and read  all those big big textbooks in a year.. its almost impossible.. I have been solving papers for the mcq books and I have seen them lifting question from .. god knows anywhere which is not related to most of us..

But does it really matter.. not at all..  one thing one should remember that.. most of you will end up marking wrong in such new question. Guess work never works in entrance .. especially when there is single exam and almost all will appear for the same.. Almost all of you mark wrong. so ultimately you are no different.. all are at an equal stage,, but what if you go wrong in one or the questions which was there in a explanation part of an MCQ books.. well.. that gonna cost you too much… every single marks gonna make a lot of difference as there is just one exams

Gone those old days when students used to mark 200 of 200 question thinking that they will get a rank.. if NEET does happen for dental then , you will have to be very serious and very choosy in marking the answers.. each mark gonna change your fate for sure.

My best advice is not to leave a single book which  has been recently a source of the mcq for the entrance book..

There are lot many books

our own DENTEST which has been recently updated fully with complete new look.. we did include the latest topics.. framed new questions.. reduced the number of mistakes 

The Dental bytes volume III containing almost all the latest papers.The papers are totally different from the old version of dental bytes or any other books

The sixth edition of dental pulse  and  the new dental explore is released too

I did hear that the recent ortho questions were lifted from MCQ IN ORTHODONTICS BY Dr.Jitendra sharan.  Well  I do feel one can expect a lot from this in the next exam too.

Leaving even a single book gonna make a big difference and we all know. One has to work hard now.. Remember.. There is no shortcut to success!!!


The questions will be single answer  objective type. Similar to any exam.. Each answer with  correct answer shall be awarded four marks. One mark will be deducted for  each wrong answer.  So it does have a negative marking..

Friends.. it has been 4 years I have been solving the papers.. I have seen one basic fact when it comes to new question.. specially the dental part.

They ask you clinically oriented questions now a days. For example.. most of them are lifted from the case based kind of question.. like the latest modalities in the treatment..

Here is an example..

Which component of the triple anitbotic paste leads to discouration of tooth..Well answer is surely Minocycilne. They do want to test your updated knowledge, well. This is bit too much to expect.. but yes.. one will surely find such  info only if you read the new editions of the books always read the new edition.

Some are directly pick from the latest MCQ textbook in market.. the only option is reading such imp mcq books.. the authors take an outmost care while setting the question in the new book.. and its mostly all new types of question.. so the examiners tend to lift the same.. which is almost equal to lifting the questions from the textbook itself… don’t be choosy in reading books..  you are not the examiners.. isn’t it??


Interim Order by Supreme court NEET PG Case which told to Continue the Existing System. All Pg entrance exams by state and central Governments, and Institutions can conduct their Own Entrance tests.
Final Hearing on Jan 15, 16, 17..

 We really don’t know what judgment it will be… but well.. what we do know is  students should not waste too much of their time in reading the news than reading the textbooks.


Well.. I do feel that its gonna be this year.. if not then next year for sure..  but we definitely don’t know whether there wont be other exams.. one can always challenge the verdict and win the case.. so.. fingers crossed. But as far as medical NEET.. its gonna be there for sure.. Dental.. well .. we need to wait for the verdict.


You all must have already been seeing the notification about the private colleges.. well.. I do feel that one should fill all the form of private exams.. like comed.. manipal.. kle.. nitte..

Why?? Well.. you  never know when the thing change. anything can happen here:P
The best thing one can do at this stage is go  fill the form and in case there is no other exams.. it becomes mandatory for the respective authorities  to pay you back the examination fees .. may be not in a month.. but you surely gonna get it after few months. So why wonder about the other examination when you can just fill it and concentrate more on studies.

When is the NEET exmanination ?

Well.. here is the projected time table.

Which is the official site for NEET PG MDS registration

Whats imp before registering for NEET??

Well.. one has to read the prospectus properly before filling the form… here is the link for the same

How are the seats allotted ?

Well.. you get both all India ranking and state wise ranking..its still unclear about the way the  private seats allotted .. I guess we need to still wait for the right info which may be only available after the conduct of examination.

Is there will be any change in fee structure ?

Well.. we don’t  know how things will be.. especially when you try to restrict the private colleges here.. we certainly can expect a hike of fees in colleges.. marginally.. if not a huge.. but why fear. When still rank is not near.. lol :P

Your only aim at this moment should be getting a rank.. hoping to end up in a GDC .. rest will follow.. after all everything happens for a reason.

The final verdict.

Well.. I don’t want  to drag this anymore.. This exam should not be a big deal for some one who has a courage to face the challenges of the world.. Doing an MDS should be a dream of own.. and its only then you will end up making it a reality.. just getting an seat is not important. World is too competitive. . getting  a good branch.. good college.. most importantly good guide .. that’s the most imp aspect of any post graduate degree.
Future comes once a day.. future of NEET is still hanging in the Supreme court. And your future is with you anyway.

Remember.. No one can write your success story.. 
its you whose holding the pen ..

 write a beautiful one J
