In this interview on AIPMT Preparation, Shailendra Maheshwari, Director, Career Point shares his insights on preparation strategy and talks on preparation material, difficulty level, question pattern and important tips for those students who can’t afford to take coaching classes for AIPMT 2014.
Careers360: What should be the preparation strategy for the AIPMT 2014 aspirants who can’t afford to take guidance from the classroom coaching?
Shailendra Maheshwari: Here, first of all I would like to clear one thing that whether a student wants to take coaching or not is his own choice. There are some brilliant students who don’t prefer to take coaching. Moreover coaching institutes promote those students who are needy and brilliant. Secondly those students who are average or above average but can’t afford to take coaching are very less as they understand their strength and weakness. See due to fierce competition a structured system is required to direct efforts towards the goal; this is what a reputed coaching institute does.
As far as preparation strategy is concerned it is obviously same for everyone as due to circumstantial issues how can preparation strategy differ. Those students who can’t afford to take coaching have to use their resources to get notes and sheets of any reputed institute. Majority of institutes provide Distance Learning Program in which they provide complete Study Material, Test Papers for practice at home or at centre and Rankers Package collection.

Careers360: What are the preparation materials they can make use of?
Shailendra Maheshwari: Again NCERT Books, Class Notes, Sheets or Study Material of Coaching institutes or some renowned publishers. Students can arrange these materials through their own resources or can get through DLP programs of reputed institutes. Moreover nowadays online material and test series are also available to students in nominal rates.
Careers360: How many hours do they need to put in for preparation? What should be the focus areas?
Shailendra Maheshwari: See this is very relative and it varies person to person, though 10 to 12 hours of effective study is required on an average to crack these examinations as syllabus is bit wide. The students should definitely concentrate on those weak areas which are having good weightage and generally questions are asked from those topics.
Important topics in Physics:
Photo Electric Effect
Dual Nature , Nuclear Physics and Radioactivity
Heat and Thermodynamics
Heat Flow [ Conduction | Radiation]
Electrostatic | Capacitors
Electrical Circuits and Measuring Instruments
EMI and AC
Mechanic, Ray and Wave Optics
Careers360: Your advice regarding AIPMT 2014 for these students
Revise the entire syllabus with a vision. Don’t read entire theory again and again.
Practice as much questions as you can and try to understand the solution of those who you have attempted wrong.
This is a game of speed and accuracy and examination temperament so more practice leads to success.
Theoretical Questions related to Modern Physics are too easy and having very less calculations therefore students of biology must emphasize on that.
In Heat and thermodynamics majority of questions are of P-Y graph or principles of thermodynamics which are easy to solve
First solve direct formula based questions of any topic.
In Chemistry sub option based question, Graph based question and Match the Column based question may also be asked.
For Biology students must prepare Diagrams, Charts and tables given in NCERT books.
Prepare flow chart for Mechanism of Physiology for quick revision
In case if any question is of lengthy calculation then first try to solve through approximation or as per options.

Sir I have no right hand and I am left handed should I eligible to apply for neet
under Physical Disability, locomotor disability, visual impairment, hearing impairment and Speech and Language disability are the conditions eligible for PWD reservation. Now your Locomotor disability should not exceed 70% for being able to claim PWD reservation Loss of right hand mounts to 50% disability. And so you are technically eligible for appearing in NEET as right hand is not your dominant hand as per what you have said in your question and also claiming PWD reservation. Now, this is the general information .medical counselling keeps making changes over the years regarding PWD reservation And so we would suggest you to reach out to NTA at their helpdesk at:
Hope this helps
from general category I have scored 99 marks in biology, 37 in chemistry & 36 in my 12 board exam will i face any problem in neet counseling or in admission process?
Abhishek, to be eligible for NEET, you should have completed your 12th, passed in all subjects and secure a minimum aggregate of 50% in Physics, Chemistry and Biology. It is 50% for General Category, 45% for PWD and 40% for OBC,SC,ST. This 50% is inclusive of the Theory and Practical marks scored in Physics, Chemistry and Biology collectively. You needn't score 50% in Physics, 50% in Chemistry and 50% in Biology separately. You need an aggregate of 50% or 40% depending on your Category as an aggregate in Physics, Chemistry and Biology. And along with Physics, Chemistry and Biology, you should also have studied English as one of the core subjects in your 12th. If your marks are both Theory and Practicals combined and your over all result is Pass in each subject and as well overall, then you are eligible for NEET. Or else unfortunately you are not eligible and you may have to reappear for those subjects which you haven't passed.
