How to Prepare for Neet SS.DM Gastroenterology Exams


DM Gastro is an exciting branch. The Dm and Mch exams i.e. the NEET SS Exams are now conducted by a committee run by NBE. In every branch there is a lot of competition as all colleges do not offer NEET SS seats in all disciplines. But still There is growing competition in all branches of DM nowadays with every aspirant wanting to have super specialization .Dm gastro tops the list as most candidates are interested in this field. After doing MD one is eligible for most Dm branches.

The interesting question arises how to study as it is very extensive to study for super specialization branches and preparing Gastro is not that simple. Most students want to know what is asked in the Superspeciality DM examinations and what to study.

The pattern of Examinations has also changed and now the exams are more conceptual, clinical oriented and testing the students’ knowledge in a real sense.


Most of the Dm Students usually start preparing for DM examinations in the Post Pg Period and that is a good time to start with. Few of the students don’t get enough time. But ideally one should start in advance.
