Careers360: What is your rank in other medical exams this year? Did you target any specific exam to excel among others exams?
Arvind Subramanian: I secured AIR 6, 17, 32 in KEAM, JIPMER, and AIPMT respectively. Yes, I put extra effort to crack Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education & Research entrance examination. My mind was preoccupied with a desire to achieve good rank in JIPMER this year. There was an emotional equation for the mentioned inclination. My elder brother is pursuing MBBS from JIPMER and I always aspired to join him.
I am very fortunate that my hard work has paid off and I will soon enroll with JIPMER located in Pondicherry.
Careers360: Please share your exam preparation strategy. How did you divide your preparation schedule among the three subjects?
Arvind Subramanian: Preparation strategy was to work hard and have clarityon basic concepts of Physics, Chemistry and Biology subjects. I started preparing the various medical competitive examinations simultaneously with my intermediate examinations.
During my Intermediate first year, I invested a lot of time to strengthen zoology and botany subjects because these two subjects have vast theory part. Thus, Biology section demanded exam preparation to be started at early.
Then, as I entered Intermediate last year, I also focused on physics. I made a point to attempt and solve at least 20 numerical a day within a set deadline to boost question-solving speed. This really helped me solve questions in time efficient manner during several entrance examinations.

Arvind Subramanian: A month before the AIIMS 2014 exam, I was busy in revising notes and solving previous years sample papers after 10-15 days. Revision exercise allowed me to analyze my weak area and brought good improvement in my exam preparation.
I also used to take 4-5 mock tests a week, which helped me to improve my question solving speed. And a day before the exam I indulged in activities like listening to music and playing video games to bust exam restlessness.
Careers360: It was a quite hectic schedule for you. Could you find time for outdoor activities?
Arvind Subramanian: I agree it used to be hectic days for me. To break the monotony of regular study schedule, at times I used to play football and basket ball matches with my friends. I was goalkeeper of my school football team in class X, which I passed out from Alphonsa Senior Secondary School, located in Calicut, Kerala. Playing matches refreshes my mind and increases my ability to focus.
Careers360: Which subject was the easiest and which was the toughest?

Hello dear aspirant.
To be honest I think you will be very much aware of the fact that from this year onwards Neet JIPMER and AIIMS will be conducted in one exam. So predicting it will be a little tricky but yes anything above 650 will provide you a good chance for sure.
Hope you get it.
Aiims ug and jipmer ug have been included in neet so there will be no separate aiims ug and jipmer ug from 2020 onwards, there's only one exam for medical aspirants now and that is NEET , now neet is the single gate way to all the medical colleges of India including all the aiims and jipmer as well. So , you need to prepare for neet only.
Hello dear student,
Yes maybe you want to give AIIMS entrance test but your student id as you know it's been cancelled not exactly cancel it is been merged with neet and now students appearing for medical examination they only have to study for one entrance test . And they will be judged on the basis of that entrance test means they will be judged on the marks they have obtained in the entrance test and they will get the medical college accordingly. So don't worry just prepare as you are preparing for Neet and that will help you . I hope this was helpful to you
