The number of questions from each subjects will be put forward in a controlled manner. This issue has been explained in another article HERE. In actual examination, be it written or practical, the questions pertaining to one subject may be asked in another paper as dentistry as whole can not be practised subject wise. Therefore, it is very much necessary that a student must prepare for examination keeping in mind that he or she can be asked anything any time.
