HI all ,

this is Dr. Amol.
I passed my prelims in March 2006 and going to appear for Final clinical exam in Nov. 2006.
This thread I am starting for the convenience of the clinical exam aspirants
and all the info for clinical exam will be collected here in one thread.

I talked with few who appeared for this exam and one thing I came to know for sure ......
that this exam ( or rather the result ) is a mystery for everyone !!!
and no one will pass this exam unless and untill we help each other and share the info.
whatever you know please share here.
If we share the info then only there is some hope that we can crack this exam. as there is no fixed pattern for it and only exchanging the ifo will give us some idea about the pattern and scope of Exam.
I hope u all will support this thread and will contribute for sure.

Hi All,

As I said while starting this thread we all shld contribute.
This is some info which I got ----

1) Radiology was the difficult part in the exam.
The examiner was asking about the lesions in the form of Picture test.
He was having a laptop and u have a screen in front of you.
So he will show you the pisture on the screen of yours and ask questions regarding D/D, TREATMENT, CLINICAL FEATURES ETC.Sometimes the pictures were too big or taken too closely so students cld not recognise !!
e was not giving any hints for the ans. !
U have to take a radiograph and use Xray taking instruments or holders...long cone or parell. tech. asked !

2) class 2 amalgam preps at different locations ( below contact point , at contact point are asked . they were 3 preps ), one silver amalgam filling
in a prepered tooth, and viva on amalgam )

3) Crown cutting ofr a bridge ( two teeth needs to cut for full coverage )
( no 3/4 or 7/8 crowns )


any one has some more info ????
pls.................................

amol

bhai logon this june me and my wife gave the clinicals we think we did good but idhar bhi frod hai cos in the melb oriientation course the examiners are thje teachers and the candidates of course exactly knew what was to be asked

let me clear you the fact the course has 40 seats they allow 20 of them to appear and pass them around 15 and give supplimentry to about 5 which means pass for others like us 1 or 2 aS they also have to justify.

information from the course people

in our batch of 50 indiand were 45 so u can imagine

So Bhai Gaurav, Pls let us know what is the real scenario.
looking at the result at both the places like Sydney and Melbourne we all suspect something m,ajor wrong in the whole process.
But as it is said ' Beggers are not choosers " !!!
so we have to go thru now.

U said out of 40 they ALLOWED 20 to appear and pass.
Now I understood passing the students but what about ALLOWING students to appear ?
To allow someone to appear for exam is in ADC's hands right ?
Then how come MELBOURNE COURSE PEOPLE can restrict other 20 to sit for exam ?
As per my knowledge Dr.Keur from Melbourne was the examiner for O.Radio
and same was the teacher for the course also but still it was very hard to pass this part of final exam in Sydney. Can you explain why ?
Pls let us know some inside story so that we can vbe prepared for ..... :scared:

Hi Dr.Gaurav,

thanks for sharing your thoughts with us.
What they have told you about your mistakes in councelling ?
Do you agree with what they told u ?
Why those other 20 people ( who were suggested not to sit for exam ) agreed for such suggestion ? Did Melbourne people gave any guarantee to them that they will pass in next attempt or rather in first attempt which they will be apperaing in November ?
How come Dr.Keur was an examiner on both the venues i.e. Melbourne and Sydney ( provided the exam was conducted on same dates, I think in Sydney it was started on 1 july ) ?
What plans you have for this time ? any thoughts in mind ?
If possible for you I would like to contact you. Can you pls give me your e-mail ID.

pls let me know if time permits.
thanks once again for sharing.
You are the only senior who is interacting with clinical exam aspirants.
thanks a lot
all the very best to u and ur wife for the exam.
regards,
amol

though the standard of the exam was good not difficult but they say marks for each excercise but what we found if you could not do one good excercise then they will find all faults in others.
in councelling they dont tell what was wrong in the exam you passed and on what criteria they passed you.
your overall performance counts and one bad excesise kills the rest

in CD3 they just screw :eek: you but still one of us passed it and other cd2 infact both of us had same standards and approach.

hi
our exams were in second week of june.
the negative points they told were all correct but if u consider a exam of 100 marks in which suppose you have 4 preprations of 25 marks each.
we could not undertstand why they failed us when we could not finish one exercise of 25 marks to their expectation though we still expect how can one cut all the marks for that
they did not tell if there was any wrong in other excersise.
u know pass was 50% so what is their criteria is not understood.

orientation people dont give any guarantees but it is understood even if u get supple it means pass next time.
this is the information given to me by the course people

Well, I would like to thank so much to those who initiated the idea to share the infos and experiences concerning the ADA exams. Everyone who went through the process probably knows how hard it was and that any kind of help is most valuable.
I am new to this. All I could ever read is that there are these 3 exams: english, written and practical (clinical). But no one gave any details of how to prepare for those, esp. for those to whom english isnt first language.
Well, could anyone give step-by-step preparation process for the exams, esp. tips, prep literature, textbooks or whatever you think would be useful to begin with. I would also like to know if the treatment methods, materials, drugs, etc. that they use in Australia are much different from the e.g. european, and whether one can learn those from textbooks?
Could anyone give any details about this Melbourne course, otc training ? someone already mentioned (any links)? are those prep courses for final exam??
Well, I have so many questions to aks, but I think this would be enough to begin with :) ... I appreciate your help..

Yea well Dentist...after youre done with it, be sure you visit the site one more time, remeber the rest of us who still have those exams in mind...to tell us how was it... tell us more about the orientation course..do you have a link?
well, about the written part of the exam, prior to the final exam - what kind of questions do come? are those multiple choice, short answer, or more sort of case diagnosis and treatment episodes descriptions...
anyways, I dont know why is everyone so worried about the conservative dentistry part... well, its dentistry isnt it...
Im more worried about the prosthetics, orthodontics, oral surgery parts...what do they ask you to perform at the final exam in those subjecs??
I mean, ist not that you can make total prostheses in 2 days or something? or like put up 4X2 App and Headgear, or maybe zyst op? or maybe?
greets from vienna to all my future aussie colleagues :)

hello,
i intend to sit the prelim in march07
however at this stage i also want to make sure i can get training for the clinical becoz without that ,the exam seems difficult to clear!and then giving the preliminary without any idea of how to clear the adc clinical seems a little futile.
this is the info i have gathered.please leme know if anyone else has found out anything regardin the same:

1.melbourne orientation:most recognised program.specificaly aimed at adc exam.most people who do th etrainin pass the exam,bcoz its 6 months of trainin only for exam.problem is the prelim results come out2-3 months after march,so the application date for this course(mid may) is gone for that year.meanin i would have to wait out another year if i wished to do the course and then give clinical costs bout 6 lakhanother thing is on their website n when i spoke to them they said gettin a visa for a 20 week program is nearly impossible.and they offer to only 20 dentists.generally people come on sum other pretext or of as spouses

2.university of adelaide:
they hav ethree options:
a)2 year undergrad.where they take in 6 international dentist after clinical tests etc into their dental program.cost is 31,500 $per annum.last date for app is mid june 2007 to start in jan 2008.had found this quite appealing too.but only in jan will they know if the program will continue in 2008.when i spoke to th euniv they said it was currently under review..and whether they decide to continue to offer this will be decided in jan.

b)18 month part time post grad program:this also helps towards the exam .same issues as above

c)1 year graduate diploma in clinical dentistry:cost 33,900 $.not specifiaclly aimed at exam but since it provides an overview of dental practise in aus,i think would be very benefiacial.however they are still to reply to my queries regardin requiremnts ,cut offs etc

3)university of sydney:
a)graduate certificate,6 month in restorative dentistry.cost 17000 $
b)graduate diploma ,1 year.cost 34800$
from the literature on the site i interpreted that this can be started in march or july.although it is not specifically aimed at exam,believe it may be helpful.th euniversity has to still reply to my queries.

4)university of queensland:not offerin presently any course which is relelvant

5)university of western autralia:grad diploma specificaly designes for oversees trained dentist for exam.but bad luck sice it is also under review,and will start earliest in 2008

6)there is one more univ in aus for dentistry have to find out bout it yet

please help me out here.and if anyone is aware of any other training program that i have not mentioned ,please leme know

I dont quite get it :confused:
what does grad diploma for overseas trained dentists mean??
Does it mean, I graduate from dental school overseas (which isnt that easy), then go to OZ, do it one more time (6 years pack in one year)...graduate again, get one more diploma, and then I may be ready to sit adc exam and pass it?? what do they do over there that the rest of the world has zero knowledge of?? implants maybe? :smuggrin: gimme a break!

1.melbourne orientation:most recognised program.specificaly aimed at adc exam.most people who do th etrainin pass the exam,bcoz its 6 months of trainin only for exam.problem is the prelim results come out2-3 months after march,so the application date for this course(mid may) is gone for that year.meanin i would have to wait out another year if i wished to do the course and then give clinical costs bout 6 lakhanother thing is on their website n when i spoke to them they said gettin a visa for a 20 week program is nearly impossible.and they offer to only 20 dentists.generally people come on sum other pretext or of as spouses

Hi Shammi
You have made a point buddy and I am also thinking now wat?:( as i wanted to take up the clinical course next year...but they require to attach the fee which is 150$ at the time of applying and have mentioned nothing on what and when they require the amount of A$15500....and as we know they take a skill assessment which they take around now that is November...
And i contacted them to check on this but they do not answer much on the real issue ehich is when are we paying the amount for the clinical course wich begins in July next year?
All please put your thoughts and experiences....here...:confused: :scared:

regards,
Dentist 79

Hi
i understand your point but if you apply the visa which is a visitor visa you will generally ,now i am saying on a general basis you get it easily in a month's time....but yes the question comes that if its for a short period as the course is about 16 week long,then u might have to go to Newzealand and make a reverse trip to Australia....as a visitor again...its wierd but ..:rolleyes:
Let me know if u have other views...and info....and also...what information do you have on Prelim....i am taking it in march 07....
Thanks

:love: Dear Dr Amol;
Accept my heartiest congratulations for clearing CD1 &
CD3 of this seemingly most difficult and extremely vague examination. I can understand the pain, anxiety with occasional episodes of depression you have suffered thorough all those sleepless nights. But Bravo, that you trieid at least, Kyo Ki ;" Girte Hain Savar 'e' Maidan 'e' jung mein, Jisne Na Dikhai Himmat, Wo Kya Khak Girega" .
So, my best wishes will always remain with you for your next successful TRY. As usual, No need to say that you will keep us guiding in this same endeavor.
KEEP IT UP:p

bhai logon this june me and my wife gave the clinicals we think we did good but idhar bhi frod hai cos in the melb oriientation course the examiners are thje teachers and the candidates of course exactly knew what was to be asked

let me clear you the fact the course has 40 seats they allow 20 of them to appear and pass them around 15 and give supplimentry to about 5 which means pass for others like us 1 or 2 aS they also have to justify.

information from the course people

in our batch of 50 indiand were 45 so u can imagine
Thanks for floating such an info.I am sure u& bhabiji have pulled through.Can u plz let me know the details of the orientation cources & the fee involved.Are they really needed or one can also do away with them?
