Thanks mim14. The timing you said is from 6 pm to 12 midnight? Did you have a chance at the testing yourself or you are talking from others' experiences?

Do you have any idea if they are done with sending out invites?
Do they call more batches after this?
And do they send rejection nail as well?

The packet does contain a list of hotels with their phone numbers but there is no mention of any discounts.

Hello everyone,

Will they ask only the preparations that were mentioned in the packet they sent or a different one? In the packet, they haven't mentioned anything related to the lateral incisor, but in 2014 they asked PFM on 7. Do we have to practice PFM on lateral incisors also? Please advise me guys.

Thanks in advance.
