-You will not get any kind of extended study leave before 3rd year exams. In fact, our 3rd year seniors had emergency duties as well 3 weeks before their exam. You have to save your yearly 30 days’ leave and take in the end, close to exams. So, that’s kind of a disadvantage.

-As a primary DNB resident, You will not sign off on any report.

It will be done by a senior resident or a secondary DNB resident. However, as time goes by, they let you do usg independently (usually by end of 1st year /2nd year)
