NEET MDS 2020 Result – Percentile Vs Percentage

A percentile rank tells that how well a candidate performed in comparison to others while the percentage shows how well a candidate performed in the test. Percentile never gives the marks of how much an aspirant has secured, instead, it just tells the merit position among the candidates who appeared for the test. The example for the better understanding between percentile and percentage will be shown below.

Percentile rank – If the mark of a candidate is greater than or equal to 80%, then he/she will be at 80th percentile, where 8 is the percentile rank.

Percentage – An aspirant securing 75% marks in the test which is of 1000 marks, thus the marks obtained by the candidate is 750. Percentage of a candidate is never affected by the merit position of the aspirant in comparison to the other candidates.

Hello Srinivas,

NEET MDS is conducted by National Board of Education (NBE) for admission to 6228  Masters of Dental Surgery (MDS) courses offered by 259 dental colleges across India. Some smart preparation tips for NEET MDS are given below by following which you can ace the exam :-

  • Focus on quality rather than quantity

Don't go for whole day study, study for required time period and that time period should be qualitative. During that time period you should concentrate only on the subject which you are reading.

  • Standardized Study material

You should always use some standardized study material instead of having huge bundle of books. Some standard books for NEET MDS are enlisted below :-

  1. Dental Pulse
  2. Dentist by Dr. Gowrishankar
  3. Dental Bytes
  • Previous year papers

Solve as many previous year papers as you can because this improves your confidence level as well as time management skill.

Well that is simply because you must be eligible only for those seven dental colleges or universities that you are provided to prioritise in order. Otherwise it won't give you only seven choices. Still I would suggest you to go through the website once again.
