in the exam if u see oral patho comes, if in ur university they teach u in second year u and u feel u r ready, give mock exam if u score 90-95 then that is fine as in real exam u will get no less than 85. but if in ur university they teach oral patho in third year like in my university then it better to wait and have a real good hold on ur basics and then give NBDE part 1.

hi personally feel , u can give it...
i think u have to get ure deans signature that u ar a student on the application form. i dont think u need to send ECE as u havnt graduated ..
i wasnt aware of this .. teill recently someone mentioned the same thing on the forums here.. dont remmeber the thread ... but im sure i read it.
as far as o path is concerned.. there isnt too much.. i dont remmeber anything from o path except micro organisms being asked .. which u can read separately.
if u can give it .. it really is great ... cause the subjectsa re fresh in ure mind...
in fact a lot of students in dental school here give the exam after the first year even though a lot of subjectsa re covered in the second....
u can check old threads in the denatl forum for this.
if i can find out somethign.. will let u know..
all the best

hi...
the advanced standing programme is an accelerated programme for trained dentists.
only on completing ure dentistry in india can u apply for the advanced standing programme.
the universities that offer space based programme , make u matriculate in the second year.
if u join the regular 4 yr programme u have to give ure DAT.

best is if u complete ure course in india , give ure part 1 and part 2 simultaneously, so that u dont loose time and then immediately apply for the advanced standing programme.
i know a friend of mine had given her part 1 prior to completing her BDS. she has given it during her internship...
in case u cant give it now... ie presuming ADA doesn not allow it.. u can def give it during ure internship...

Calm down. I know you are all geared up to be the first and only one to take the Part one while still in Dental School. Too bad. You are not. I know some one who took it in 3rd year. I know 2 more people who took them in internship,myself included.

There are 2 main reasons why you should not take the exam before you finish your Final BDS:

1) You are not mentally ready to take the exam. You will say you are and that you can study and all that. But its much better if you finish the final year before you take the exam. The level of training the kids in Dental School receive is much better than the one we get back home.

2) A lot of school accept scores no later than 3/5 years. BU for eg needs the exam to be taken in the last 3 years. You will not make it in time.

As far as joining the Advanced Standing Program directly after your 2nd year is concerned,that a whole lot of crap! As a normal person would say,"Bull S**t"

You probably dialed the wrong no and they were just playing around with you.

http://www.dental.upenn.edu/academic/PASSprogram/pass-requirements.html

http://dental.pacific.edu/admissions1/IDS/admission.htm

http://dentalschool.bu.edu/bulletin/Bulletin-DMD.html

These are the web pages of the 3 renowned dental schools in the US with Advanced Standing Programs. They state the requirements to APPLY for the program,not get in,APPLY.

If you bother to read all of them you will find that all need to Dental Degree. If you plan to join here after 2nd year, where the hell do you plan to get your degree from?

So my unwanted advice is

Stop building castles in air. Postpone the boards till your internship at the earliest. Finish you final BDS.

Most importantly stop using your real name on a forum like this. If your faculty reads it,the fireworks will not be very enjoyable for you.

P.s. I am sure you will feel like shooting me for saying all this. But some where down the line you will be thankful to me for this talk.
