With less than 30 days left for AIPMT 2016, it’s time to take your preparation to the final level. Besides your basic study schedule, you also now need to emphasize on developing a preparation strategy that gives you enough time for revision. Here, Careers360 brings you ‘30 Days AIPMT Strategies’ to ace the test by experts and toppers.

AIPMT 2016 is scheduled to be conducted on May 1, 2016, in paper-pencil based format. According to experts, the last 30 days of AIPMT 2016 should be strategically divided for revision, taking mock tests, solving sample papers, numerical practice, and analysis.


Take full-length mock test

With the entrance exam just a month away, the aspirants must now focus on solving mock tests and sample papers.  Apart from taking full-length mock tests, candidates should also develop patience to sit for 3 hours and develop concentration. By practicing mock tests and sample papers, you get a fair idea on how to score big in the actual exam day. Emphasizing on the importance of mock tests, Aakash Chaudhary, Director, AESPL states, “By practicing AIPMT mock tests or sample papers, students can devise their strategy to solve the complete paper efficiently. This will give them the basic idea about the pattern and type of questions being asked in the medical entrance exam. By practicing in this way, students can learn the time management strategy and recognize their weak and strong areas.”


Brush up your basics

By solving mocks and last years’ question papers, a candidate brushes up the basic concepts. And, as it is said, if you have brushed your basics, you can tackle any questions, be it tricky or a straight one. Now that you have less than 30 days, ensure that you have fully prepared all the important topics from each subject. “Learn formulas, understand basic concepts and develop synchronization between speed and accuracy,” shares Shailendra Maheshwari, Academics Director, Career Point.


Give ample time to revision

Revision is a vital aspect of exam preparations. If you do not revise what you have learned so far, you would end up in a mess. As twin toppers of AIPMT 2015, Sahil Bansal and Rahul Bansal, AIR 4 and 6 share, “A month before the exam, we were busy in revising notes which we made during school and coaching classes. We used to solve previous year sample papers and mock tests. The revision has helped us in analyzing our weak areas and brought good improvement in our studies.” They further advice, “In this 1 month, keep a day exclusively for revision and take the mock tests the next day.”


Devise exam-day strategy and follow it  

After attempting mock test and analyzing them, students must have identified the strategy that suits them well. As per toppers and experts, it is best to start with your strong areas followed by the weaker ones. This not only ensures a smooth start but will also boost students’ confidence level.  Shailendra Maheswari advises, “Don’t start with a difficult question. Try solving those questions first which you are confident about.” He further adds, “Don’t waste too much time in solving one question which seems to be a little tricky to you, instead switch to the next one. In case of lengthy calculations, first, use approx. method.”


Quick tips by Aakash Chaudhary for the last days of AIPMT 2016:

  1. Do not waste time in writing the theoretical statements repeatedly. Rather one must learn to understand the logic behind it.

  2. Practise the examples more given at the end of the chapters.

  3. Learn various assumptions and conditions associated with different formulas

  4. Do not start any new topic or chapter at this point of preparation

when I open any college profile, there is written - (Exams accepted Neet UG,Neet PG. etc) what does that mean?

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 15th Oct, 2019

Dear Utsav, that actually means the College in particular has MBBS, MD,MS courses and the admissions to these courses are through NEET UG, NEET PG,etc. Apart from MBBS, courses like BDS, Ayush, Veterinary sciences also conduct admissions through NEET. In some States, courses like Physiotherapy, Occupational therapy also accept NEET score. So, if you are searching for any Medical College, this information showing up is pretty normal.


I am scoring 550 and above in my long term coaching exams for NEET 2020.Can I hope to score 600 and above in NEET 2020 exam?

Aditya kumar Student Expert 15th Oct, 2019
Hello there!
Yes , you can of course score 600 marks and above and yes right now you are in the path of preparation of neet so continuously increasing and improving marks should be a part of your journey. And if you keep up the hardwork and you will definitely score 600 marks as if you are getting 550 now , you still hace enough time for neet to take it to 600+ . You can make a time table,  give at least 8- 10 hours to self study.  Once you are done with your syllabus,  attempt full-length mock tests and focus more on weak topics. You can prepare short notes for revision as well.

Can we join any reputed coaching institute for 6 months for neet 2020?

Aditya kumar Student Expert 15th Oct, 2019
Hello there!


I am extremely sorry to tell you dear but there's no reputed Institute who provides 6 months course for neet preparation. For example, if i tell you about reputed institutes like Aakash and Allen Institutes then they don't provide admission for neet preparation just six months before neet. Similar is the case with other institutes , so there's no coaching institute which will provide you admission now just six months before,  you can go for self study.


Is it worth to join crash course for 3 months for NEET 2020 exam for scoring good in reputed institutes?

Aditya kumar Student Expert 14th Oct, 2019
Hello there!


Yes , test series worth it for neet . Test series are nearly similar to the actual exam and help you know what really happens during the real test. The difficulty level of the questions, the pattern of questions, the marking scheme, and the allotted time are kept identical so this will allow you to get a hands-on experience of solving the questions in exam . Practice not only makes you perfect but also builds confidence. Giving more tests during test series will help you manage time and performance with great confidence. The more tests youll give, the better you'll understand your strong and weak areas, test series also give you the opportunity to solve every question with a positive attitude. Test series for NEET 2020 will help tremendously in this respect for you.
