Question:If any one freezes a seat in DNB Round 2 , will he/she eligible for state Round 2 ?

Ans:Actually DNB R1 joined candidates can attend state Round 2 and (only then) their freezed DNB Round 1 seat would come back to DNB Round 3. That’s how you get vacancies in DNB. (Here DNB Round 3 timelines of NBE are important though, but that’s an NBE scheduling issue, and hopefully NBE would would look in to it).

Those candidates who froze seat by paying 1.25 lakhs because that DNB seat was the best seat available and they would have wanted to take that if no state Round 2 seat. Now if NBE doesn’t allow them to move to better seat anywhere, then it is also a loss for those who are looking at DNB too right. .

Already ,more than 100 frozen seats reverted back in DNB Round 3 as candidates were allowed to participate in All India Round 2. Same here.

Only very few would have made a mistake of freezing an undesired seat paying 1.25 lakhs. Just to penalize such one or two candidates, the rest of the seats that would come back to DNB from state Round 2 up gradation should not be lost.

Question: Which is better DNB or MD/MS ?

Ans: Although DNB course is equivalent to MD & MS.Good thing is that in DNB fee is same in All Institutes/Hospitals and very nominal.For session this fee is Rs 1.25 Lakhs per annum whereas MD/MS course fee is very much higher in private medical colleges.More over there is more practical exposure to DNB candidates.
