Excerpts from the interview:
Careers360: Congratulations, it’s a proud moment. How are you celebrating this achievement?
Oshin Bhatia: Thank you so much. It feels great to be among the top five rankers and there are celebrations in the family and people are sending their best wishes. Though I was confident about cracking AIIMS but this AIR 4 came as a surprise and I am very overwhelmed with this great success.
Careers360: Tell us what made you select MBBS as a Career?
Oshin Bhatia: I was keen to join this profession since my childhood. Actually becoming a doctor is like a family profession. Besides my parents, most of my cousins are either doctors or are studying medicine. So, I grew up in this environment and this is what I have always liked. There is nothing else I wanted to be in this world.
Careers360: What was your preparation strategy?
Oshin Bhatia: I have a well planned strategy for preparation which includes routine studies, regular mock test and revision. Firstly, I covered all the topics from NCERT books and then for detail studies I referred different reference study materials for developing clear concepts. I found with clear concepts on subjects helps me to solve assertion based questions which were asked in AIIMS entrance exam.
There’s not only one key factor that helps in scoring high. Self study, hard work and your passion towards studies will help you to sail with flying colours.
Careers360: You prepared so hard and your hard work has paid so well. Were you active in any recreational activity?
Oshin Bhatia: Well my focus was on studies so I did not spend much time on other activities. Whenever I used to get bored of studies, I used to either watch TV or take a power nap. These two activities have helped me in releasing study pressure, anxiety and nervousness. I devoted time for recreational activities and it has helped me succeeding.
Careers360: How did you prepare for AIIMS 2015? How much time did you devote for studies? What are the other medical exams you have appeared in?
Oshin Bhatia: After my coaching classes I used to revise concept and topic taught during coaching.I used to devote 6 to 7 hours daily for self study. As Biology was my strength and was little weak in Physics so I devoted maximum time to Physics specially in solving numericals and worked hard to convert my weaknesses into my strengths. I give credit of my success to disciplined study.I had appeared in GGSIPU and Punjab PMET and secured AIR 2 and AIR 18 respectively.
Careers360: So now that you are among the top rankers in many medical entrances, which college you are planning to join?
Oshin Bhatia: Since my childhood I always wanted to join AIIMS New Delhi. And, now I have secured such good rank I will definitely join AIIMS only. It will be like a dream come true situation for me.
Careers360: You also appeared in AIPMT 2015, since the paper is a part of controversy and the test would be re-conducted again. What is your reaction on this?
Oshin Bhatia: It is not good that AIPMT 2015 will be re-conducted. I feel bad for those who have given the exam with full preparation and zeal. I am fortunate that I don’t have to appear for re-exam but feeling sad for those who have to appear. Every one of us has a temperament towards exam and same cannot be repeated.
Careers360: Any suggestions for AIIMS aspirants?
Oshin Bhatia: I would like to tell the future aspirants to study thoroughly the entire syllabus. Candidates must have a basic clarity on concepts and should have studied NCERT Books completely. As AIIMS exams have a different section for GK and Assertion, study newspaper daily and solve aptitude questions on weekly basis.
Don’t be nervous at any stage. If you are willing to achieve, you will achieve it. Follow a simple strategy of revising and do not get relaxed after writing your exam. Take maximum one day gap and start preparing for the next level.
Careers360: We wish you good luck for all your future endeavors and Thank you for this great interview.
Oshin Bhatia: Thank you so much!

From 2020 onwards, there shall be only one entrance exam for MBBS and that's NEET.
AIIMS and JIPMER, no longer will conduct their entrance exam.
Now, coming to eligibility criteria for NEET which is based on aggregate for PCB against each category mentioned below-
Although, you haven't mention your category, but your aggregate for PCB comes up to 61.3%, so you're definitely eligible for NEET. And, just to inform you there's no upper age limit and hence, no restriction in terms of appearing for NEET.
Hello Shreya .
As we all know that earlier AIIMS was a little difficult exam for all the aspirants. Now this year as all Neet AIIMS JIPMER are combined together so the chances are that the exam will be a little bit difficult but it will be not as much as AIIMS earlier.
Hope you get it.
Dear Satyam, as of now, everything is speculative. Until NTA or AIIMS release any official notification regarding this, nothing is definitive. But there are 2 possibilities that might happen. AIIMS might prepare its own merit list based on its own eligibility criteria like AFMC and other Institutions and DGHS might conduct the admissions because AIIMS doesn't belong to any particular State. AFMC conducts a TOELR test, psychometric test and a final interview before shortlisting its Candidates. AIIMS might follow this rule. Nothing is certain at this point in time. We need to wait to hear from the concerned authorities.
