Careers360: Congratulations on becoming an AIPMT 2015 Topper? How are you celebrating?
Khushi: Thank you. I am very happy and I can’t believe that I am one of the toppers in AIPMT 2015, and also a topper among the female candidates. I am planning to visit a temple in the evening with my family. I want to thank God for showering me with such huge success.
Careers360: How did you prepare for AIPMT 2015? What were the books that you studied from?
Khushi: I followed my coaching experts’ advice and guidance. I used to revise each and every topic being taught to me in school as well as in my coaching center. I have found NCERT books to be very simple and helpful, especially in Biology and Physics. I also had my time table prepared and studied accordingly. It is very important to develop a habit of self and sincere study which helps in building the basics as well as strengthen the self-satisfaction.
Careers360: How much time you devoted to your studies during AIPMT 2015 Preparation?
Khushi: I did not study for 4 to 5 hours at a stretch. I have always focused on completing my syllabus, which I had decided for myself when I started preparing for the exam. I never tried to cram any formula or concept. Rather, I have always tried to understand the concept. I never decided for how many hours I had to study, but I used to decide what topics I had prepare and revise.
When AIPMT got cancelled, I treated it as another chance of preparing well. After appearing in the exam, I had got to know my weak areas. So during the AIPMT 2015 Retest preparation days, I had worked really hard to convert my weak areas into my strengths.
Careers360: What was the difficulty level of the questions in AIPMT, and strategy during the exam?
Khushi: AIPMT is one of the most difficult exams of Medicine. However, I found the exam to be quite easy and simple. Any student who had prepared thoroughly for the exam would have found it to be easy. I did not opt for any strategy in solving the question paper. I kept on solving the questions serial wise. As I solved questions in each section, I maintained my focus and calm. If you would lose your calm during your performance, you would end up messing your exam.
Careers360: What about your family? How did they support you?
Khushi: My parents are Dentists. They inspired me a lot and stood beside me during my preparation days. There was no study pressure from my parent’s side. I feel lucky that my parents have always supported me and helped me in chasing my dream of becoming a doctor.
Careers360: Were you involved in any recreational activity during the exam preparation?
Khushi: Yes, I was very much active in recreational activities. Whenever I used to get tired of studies, I used to listen to soft songs on my laptop which have always helped in relaxing my mind. I also used to go on evening walks to get some fresh air. This way I used to break my monotony of studies and reduce exam tension. These recreational activities have helped me in studying with more fresh and focused mind.
Careers360: What message would you like to give AIPMT aspirants?
Khushi: What made me a topper are hard work, focus and passion towards my goal of becoming a doctor. I would give the same suggestions to other aspirants that work hard to follow your dream. Always believe in yourself and treat yourself as your biggest competitor. And remember, “Those who dream the most; do the most”.
