Hey Ashish,


The score you have mentioned is an avearge score of 5 subjects.
Though it is aloso considered while securing admission in any college, but most important than the score is what and where exactly is your interests area.

Are you interested in Dentistry?????

Moreover, to secure a seat in dentistry, you need the 12th score and not the 10th marks.

Your 10th score is important to secure admission in a Junior college. So the best would be to secure admission in any Science Junior college, preferably opting for PCB stream. Post that work smart and sensibly and not just rote learn.
Make a goal plan as to how much of score is required to secure admission in Medical colleges apart from the entrance exam and work accordingly.

Hence forth your focus should completely be on scoring the best in the 12th so that atleast your marks are not a hindrance for you to join medical.
When I speak of marks it also includes the score in the entrance examination.

Please note that the entrance exam forms are separate for general medicine and dentistry. Please be careful while filling the required forms.

Work smartly and sensibly and make a goal plan now itself.

Wish you good luck..............
