Preparation tips for MD in Ayurveda Entrance Exam

As there is limited number of seats for MD in Ayurveda, the entrance test meant for the same will be highly competitive. Exam includes questions from the core areas covered in BAMS course. Most of the ayurvedic terms are mentioned in Sanskrit language and so it is better to write these terms in a separate paper during study. Don’t try to mug up topics while studying, as this may make things easily forgettable. Referring books and articles on ayurveda will also improve one’s knowledge. One can also approach coaching centers for exam preparation. These centers offer proper guidance and tip to clear the entrance test.
