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. 

Keeping this fact in mind, we prepared the entire course at this website. In the initial phase of the study, a student dentist may feel different regarding the chronology or arrangement of topics or papers. He or she may also feel that the questions asked here are very simple. This has been done intentionally, keeping in mind the fact of curriculum of undergraduate course pattern in India which is completely different than that of the Australian dentistry and their teaching curriculum. By going in a stepwise manner provided in our courses, you will transform your thought process and start thinking as the ADC wants you to do. This is a long lasting change we want in your thought process that will help you in passing ADC examination successfully in one attempt. You can have a feel of the question pattern in our sample test papers.

The samples test papers of Scenario-based and Single-best answer MCQs have been provided in Free Course. The sample questions are taken from the existing question bank of ADC and will not be used again in any future examination, as per ADC hand book. While these sample questions represent the type of questions currently being used in the examination, it is possible that some of the sample questions and answers may not reflect recent advances in knowledge or practice. Besides, we have added some questions that are prepared based on the memories of our old students that have cleared the ADC examinations. You can take either Platinum Course or Diamond Course based on your experience with ADC. The “Platinum Course” is for new dentist where as the “Diamond Course” is for those who have experience and study material for ADC examination.
