1.Congratulations on achieving such an amazing feat.   Tell  us  a  bit  about  yourself. Please  also  tell  us  your individual  marks  in  each subject.

I am Sakshi H. Gujrathi. BDS Student.From ACPM Dental College Dhule.
My marks:
Anatomy 146
Physiology & Biochemistry 144
Dental anatomy & histology 136

2.So, when all of  this  is  new  and the  rest  of  us  are  still  busy  figuring the  head and tail  of  the  subject,  how  did you tackle  and master  the  syllabus?

It was also new for me but as I read & tried to understand, I became familiar with the subjects. But in case you are not getting the subject, don’t give up. You could always ask someone for help.

3.Did you have  a  set  schedule, a time  table  that  you stuck to?  What  were  the  daily  hours  that  you put in self study  ?

No. I never used to make a time table but yes l had a fixed schedule for studying in my mind. I think it works differently for every person. And no, I had no specific hours for studying.

4.Do you have any  special  pointers  for  specific  subjects?  

For anatomy we should be more focused on diagrams. Your diagram speaks more than what you write.  You  should understand the subject.

Physiology : diagrams are imp. Mechanism should be understood & learnt. Bhalani question bank is useful but l think first you should understand the subject and then go for preparation of subjects according to exam view.

Biochemistry is quite easy subject there are some topics that we should be more focused like vitamins.; enzymes; metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, proteins;  minerals

5.Did you have  a  different  methodology  of  tackling  the  subjects?  Any  special  notes  that  you prepared?

My seniors used to tell me that you should study according to your methodology. Don’t use others way of studying. You will find your own method during studying.

6.How do you propose  the  students study and what kind  of  discipline  should be  followed during  exam  time?

There is nothing like discipline during exam time. You study & you have to study it might be because of pressure or anything else.
Just go for studies but be healthy.

7.Could you give  some  important  pointers  on  Exam  writing skills?  And also  how  should  one  prepare  for  a practical  exam?

Your paper should be neat & clean, all the aspects of question should be covered. Underline the imp or highlighting aspects of answers.
One imp thing is don’t leave any question in exam, just write something related to it.
For practicals, your theory should be clear and answer with confidence.

8.So, do you have  any  parting thoughts?  Like  disclosing that  secret  mantra  that  you  chanted  or  that  special brand of  energy  drink  you savoured?  Just kidding.  Seriously  though, anything at  all?

No, there is nothing like a secret mantra.
But one thing l want to tell you that as it is a professional field you should be always hungry of knowledge. We should exam oriented but first be knowledgeable.
