Jyotirmoy Banik 28th Feb, 2020

Hi Deepak ,

I think you should prepare for NEET along with your BVSC 1st year studies because leaving the course before securing MBBS seat is a matter of risk . But if you are confident about your selection in NEET you can take the risk . If you are thinking it's impossible to do the both then please take me as an example .

I myself also gave HS in 2016 and I take BSc chemistry Hons . After completing my first year I started preparing for NEET with some of my friends . I prepared for NEET along with my 2nd year studies and in NEET 2018 I got a seat in govt bds . I left chemistry course and joined BDS . Even after joining BDS , I again prepared for NEET and now I am a MBBS student .

So it's definitely possible to continue both the studies with calculated efforts and dedication . Now think properly and choose your way wisely . All the best !
