FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

Q1. Can You Select which is the Best; BDS or BSC Nursing?

Ans: BDS is well-improved than B.Sc. nursing. The vital fact is that in BDS, you will have a better future and also can achieve success. 

From an academic point of view, the BAMS success rate is better than BDS.

Q2. Is There any Option that Anyone can Join BDS Without Appearing for the NEET?

Ans: The answer is simply No. There is no option than anyone can take admission in BDS, except you have secured the minimum mark in the NEET exam. It is mandatory from 2016 that you need to qualify the NEET for studying in MBBS or BDS.

In abroad studies, NEET is also mandatory for every aspirant for their BDS study. 

Q3. Which Course is Easier, BDS or MBBS?

Ans: Well, it depends upon you completely about how you are treating these two courses. Both the MBBS and the BDS are best in their ways. 

As we know, the MBBS course is for the bachelor in medicine, bachelor in surgery, and many other streams are there as well. But, in the case of BDS, it implies a bachelor of dental surgery. 

So, MBBS has a huge scope and vast opportunities for higher studies rather than BDS. BDS is the best choice for those who do not want any higher education.

Q4. Elaborate about the Toppers’ Way of Study.

Ans: The key to the toppers is that they work on their revision. The revision of any topic helps them to get the best out of it and secure good marks. The revision will make you more comfortable and help you find what is important in this topic. 

Especially for the NEET exam, you need to focus on the topic and practice lots of MCQs along with clarity in the concept regarding specific chapters.
