    Hey Kajal

    whats so funny in my ques.....and please do not comment about me following or not following the threads....yes I have been reading all the posts everyday may be not commenting on all of them or even any of them.

    I don't think u have got what I am asking.I am not asking any one of you for your scores.I am just curious to know what is the highest score you have heard of?thats all.

    no names no gpa no toefl no schools admitting and all that stuff.

    Please give a thought before making such a careless remark next time, lest u offend some one again like u offended me.

    99 is awesome.....and to follow that with 97 is fantastic......too bad we don't have a dental equivalent of an IIT or IIM!!!!!

    guess its all to do with the non-recognition of our BDS here in the US!

    gpg,
    Kajalkiran was only making light of the current situation, I doubt if she/he meant anything more than that.

    Hey Kajal

    at the onset let me apologise to you from the bottom of my heart.....I did not mean to be rude but I know thats exactly what I have gone ahead and done.......please forgive me...

    I have been reading the why????//thread and can understand what bond feels........I was in a bad frame of mind when I read your post and hence my reaction.....no offense meant pls....

    I am trying really hard to motivate myself and its not easy to do so when u r studing Biochem where I am not even crossing 75 in the past papers while I am routinely getting 96-98 in DA and 95 or so in Path Micro........please help me with Biochem......will the Lippencott review be helpful......I dont want to start reading a new book if it is not going to help me....

    sorry again kajal

    For biochem
    Get the smallest textbook available and go through it before you dive into the details or if you already have a good book stick with it. Try to get the hang the basics. Try to understand how the cycles work and dont try to just memorize it. Sometimes writing it down as you try to understand, helps too.
    This worked for me and in the end I really enjoyed studying it. Infact I would do biochem any day than do dental materials :)Good Luck.

    You will need the ECE scores before you apply and for that you will need your degree, right ?
    Do you have an idea by when you will get your degree in hand ?

    Biochem- Dont go into too much details. But whatever you learn, learn it well so you don't get confused.

    You will have to look into ECE's website for that. ( I think they do require a copy of your degree, but I am not sure ).
    Most schools will not invite applicants for interview unless their application is complete.

    Henna's right. If you ask schools, most you'll tell you they DO NOT accept provisional degrees. And ECE does need a copy of your degree in order to evaluate your education.

    So looks like you'll have plenty of time to prepare for part 1 and part 2. That's better.

    Also Henna's right with Biochem. After I was done studying biochem, I realized that most released papers focus more on Physiology rather than biochem. At least in my test most of the questions I got for biochem were related to physio.

    I got my stuff evaluated just when I finished my internship.I sent them the foll:

    1)marksheets of SSC,HSC and 1st to 4th BDS.

    2)pass certificates of SSC,HSC and final bds

    3)transcripts(i.e.subject wise theory and prac hours)

    4)copy of internship completion certificate issued by the college.

    Also I had procurred a certi from my asso dean stating that I have completed all my requirements for BDS and have applied to the Univ for deg cert.

    I got the evaluation done with no hassles.

    The trouble is that no univ accepts u without the deg cert.

    but go ahead and get the evaluation done....remember the course-by-course one!

    methinks u will be in school by 2006!

    where u from basically?Manglore itself or some other place?

    i doubt this is true because i got my ECE evaluation done during internship itself without completion of internship. all that was mentioned was that if i finished my course i had a bachelor of dental surgery degree....makes no diiference. i applied to BU and Upenn with a PDC and neither of them asked for the degree certificate.

    i did however read in one of the threads earlier that some guy got a provisional admission from NYU with a PDC and would be granted admission only after submitting his degree certificate.

    :confused: i don't remeber who exactly it was ut if anyone knows post a link here

    I sure don't know what PDC is, and I don't know the system for intership and all that stuff, but I do remember that when I called and wrote all the schools, most of them told me they need copies of the degree.

    Meetlife,
    Just call the schools and find out for yourself, before you invest any money. Maybe things will work out after all.

    Congrats to every1 who got into NYU.I applied there in Nov..was told to send in my dergee certificate.Since i got it only last week..i sent it to them..only to be told that they don't accept provisional certificates.I'll get mt 'final' degree only in april..will it be too late to send it in then?Also..i was planning to re-take my NDB 1(got only 85 the first time)..Will the best score be taken into consideration or only the latest?Anyone applied to USC?Heard they have a high intake there.

    hi meetlife
    i think this reply is a bit too late as you already have contacted ECE but in any case i think it would be of help if i told you i got an evaluation with a provisional degree itself and that was sufficient.
    hope that helps.

    Ya I think u can apply and even will be called for the intrview....I think u need to submit the original cert either at the start of ur summer course or at the start of the actual course.....thats the clinics......best thing to do.....stop speculating and ask the schools themseleves.....and then let us know what they say.....cheers!

    Hi Meggs,
    PDC stands for provisional degree certificate. It is not a commonly used terminology even in India:)))

    Hi everyone!
    had my ece evaluation General}even before my final year results were out and the ece report mentioned it quote 'If this student receives the B.D.S as expected, this document will confirm completion of a dentistry program in India'
    This was sufficient to take the nbe part 1 .
    After completion of intership i got another one prepared with my provisional degree....which i believe is now sufficient for the part 2.
    Hope this information is useful...

    It would be a great help to know which schools accept the provisional degree as a complete application with no further documentation required!!



    cheers..:horns:
