Careers360: Now that the exam date for AIPMT 2015 has been announced and only three months are left for AIPMT 2015, what preparation plan and strategy do you suggest to the students to balance their Class XII board along with AIPMT preparations?
Shailendra Maheshwari: See this is the time when a student should start revision for board exams and give full concentration to boards. February and March obviously are for board exams. Focus on writing the exam as per board pattern where formula is simple - must draw diagrams wherever possible, follow a pattern for explanation, write steps for derivation and be relevant.
Here follows my quick tips:
The subjects are same so a student needs not to be panic just have to practice Board Test papers so as to secure good marks and also have a practice to write test papers as per board pattern.
He/ She should be conceptually strong so as to able to write the answer as per any exam pattern. Board papers are more of theoretical in nature and needs explanation, derivations, diagrams apart from some numerical based questions.
A time table is must to follow and should be made according to the weight-age of subject topic. One should give more time to topics having good weight-age and bit tricky or difficult to understand.
Before setting the time table collect relevant information about the weight-age of the topic as per particular exam point of view and then set as per the pace
One should strategically understand the pattern of examination and how to write the test paper, last year papers must be solved, NCERT Examplar are must to refer. Important Derivations and formulas should be on tips.
Don’t refer same topic with various books as it is merely wastage of time.
Prepare Short Notes, Diagrams and Ready reckoner side by side for revision of important topics.
Revision of all the topics must be done with a vision. No need to read any new topic but need to strengthen the weak areas after completion of the course.
Careers360: What are important topics for Physics, Chemistry and Biology that you think students must focus on to perform well in AIPMT 2015 and other medical entrance exams?
Shailendra Maheshwari: As per competitive exam point of view every topic is important as there is no set trend. But still following topics seem to be important and must be mastered thoroughly:
Physics: Heat and Thermodynamics, Waves, Optics, Modern Physics
Chemistry: Ionic Equilibrium, Electrochemistry, Chemical Kinetics, GOC, Carbohydrates, Proteins and Polymers, P Block, Chemical Bonding
Biology: Human Physiology, Plant Physiology, Ecology, Genetics
Aspirants should also attempt more and more papers to develop synchronization between speed and accuracy.
Careers360: Please suggest important books for Physics, Chemistry and Biology that AIPMT aspirants must follow for their preparation.
Shailendra Maheshwari: I suggest NCERT Books, Class Notes, Sheets or Study Material of Coaching institutes or some renowned publishers. Moreover nowadays online material and test series are also available to students in nominal rates.
Careers360: What could be the possible level of difficulty as compared to last year? Do you think thatAIPMT 2015 will be easier than AIPMT 2014?
Shailendra Maheshwari: Generally examiners set a balanced paper and there is no set rule of being easy or difficult. Considering the level of competition and preparation of students it should be of good level as let’s the best brain to be selected. Though there is no parameter if you have prepared well nothing is difficult else everything is a question.
Careers360: What should be the key areas to play in this AIPMT 2015 exam?
Shailendra Maheshwari: Again, there is no set trend but yeah, on the basis of experience we can suggest subject wise tips which a student should follow:
a. Theoretical Questions related to Modern Physics are too easy and having very less calculations therefore students of biology must emphasize on that.
b. In Heat and thermodynamics majority of questions are of P-Y graph or principles of thermodynamics which are easy to solve
c. First solve direct formula based questions of any topic.
d. In case if any question is of lengthy calculation then first try to solve through approximation or as per options.
e. You may solve Career Point’s Full Syllabus Test papers to cover the entire syllabus effectively
f. Physical Chemistry:
Try to practice Numerical based questions
See NCERT Examples and examplar questions
Give more Emphasis on 12th Class topic.
g. Inorganic Chemistry:
Give emphasis on Chemical Bonding, Co-ordination Compound
NCERT Examplar questions
Previous year AIPMT papers
h. Organic Chemistry:
Bio-molecules, Polymer and Chemistry in everyday life as per NCERT
i. In Chemistry sub option based question, Graph based question and Match the Column based question may also be asked.j. Career Point’s Full syllabus test papers are recommended.Biology:For Biology students must prepare Diagrams, Charts and tables given in NCERT books.
Prepare flow chart for Mechanism of Physiology for quick revision
Cover CP Full syllabus test papers which are precisely designed to cater the need of AIPMT by expert team

Dear Banu, under Rights for persons with Disabilities under Benchmark disabilities, auditory disability should not exceed 40% to be eligible for PWD reservation in NEET. Now you haven't mentioned the disability percentage and so that it makes it difficult to guess. MCI has approximately 20 approved disability assessment centres which are listed in mcc.nic.in. You can get assessed at one of these centres. If the disability is more than 40% then you are not eligible for PWD reservation but will be considered for category reservation if applicable.
Dear Durga, there are probabilities that questions will be repeated in NEET. But we do not know the number of questions. But the fact that the syllabus is defined and the questions can be asked within these topics alone, chances are that questions will be repeated. So we shall help you with the syllabus and preparation tips. You can also check the sample papers for practise.

Physics needs utmost focus and time because it involves with theoretical concepts and numbers. There should be a systematic approach in preparing for NEET. The important topics are Mechanics, ElectroDynamics, Modern Physics, Heat and Thermodynamics, Optics, Simple Harmonic Motion, Waves. Formulae form an integral part of your preparation. Memorise as many formulae as you can and write them down and stick them as post its so that you can always see them. Practise regularly and try various kinds of questions. Solving previous papers and mock tests to test your improvement. Keep a clock and check the time its taking you to solve these questions. And improve the time as you practise more. One day of the week should be set aside for revision so as to keep the mind fresh.

Biology is the biggest section in NEET, comprising about half of the exam, and acing this subject can help you in scoring more in the exam. Human Physiology and Genetics have maximum weightage in NEET. It is advisable to practise questions of Genetics from previous year question papers, which will give you a thorough understanding of how the questions are being asked. Topics of Plant and Animal kingdom have a lot of portion to memorize. You can prepare these topics by making a comparative table for the sub-topics and studying it together. Plant physiology is also equally important and easy to score. For more tips, please visit our page at:
