Expert tips from Aakash Chaudhary:
Syllabus: Candidates must give importance to those topics and sections which are scoring in nature. The best way to do is to analyze sample paper and previous year question papers. “Studying the vast syllabus along with AIPMT preparations can be a tedious task. The solution to the problem lies in confronting this challenge by making weekly plans and assessing your performance regularly by taking the mock test so to improve the preparation level,” he says.
One of the toppers, Vipul Garg, who secured AIR 1 in AIPMT 2015 shares that it is better to draw a matrix of chapters as per their weightage. He says, “I firstly tried to complete the syllabus and then focused completely on topics as per their weightage in the exam. It is a waste to devote time on chapters which are of less mark’’. He further suggests studying this way helps in scoring well in boards as well as competitive exams.

Books and Material: Studying NCERT Books thoroughly is the key for complete preparation. For additional help, candidates can refer to books from renowned authors and other study materials. “NCERT Books are the base to get your concepts clear and strong in all the three subjects”, suggests Mr. Aakash.
Khushi Tiwari, the topper among female candidates and AIR 2 in AIPMT 2015 believes that NCERT books are simple and helpful to score high. She explains, ‘’For me, my text books were very useful, especially in Biology and Physics. I tried to revise each and every topic taught to me in my school which helped in building base and strengthen the self-satisfaction.”

Focus on strong areas: Toppers and experts suggest that candidates should focus completely on their strong areas during the last days of preparations. It is also advisable not to start any new topic at the last hours. “Candidates must revise their fundamentals thoroughly as chances of answering the questions correct are more with a strong conceptual background”, shares Mr. Chaudhary.
Nayan Gupta All India Rank 5 in AIPMT 2015 believes that candidates need to focus on strong areas and cover each topic which is a part of both 10+2 Board Exams and AIPMT. He says, “When only a few days are remaining for exams, the candidate needs to concentrate on the strong areas in Physics, Chemistry, and Biology subject through routine revision and solving questions of the same”.
Mock Test: In order to develop a foundation of theory, candidates can take a lot of Mock Tests. This way candidate can develop a time management strategy and recognize their weak areas. Aakash Chaudhary says, “It is important to get an idea of the actual question paper before appearing for the exam, and these mock tests help a lot of with that”.
Twin toppers, Sahil, and Rahul, who secured AIR 4 and 6 respectively in AIPMT 2015 shares that solving mock tests were immensely helpful. Sahil says, “Mock test not only helps in identifying the weak areas but also defined the test taking strategy. This helped further to improve our weak areas and prepare accordingly.” He also adds that it is not possible to judge your preparation level without taking mock tests.
Candidates need to believe in themselves. “I can do” attitude will help them scaling heights with flying colors.

DC panday is written such that not everyone likes it. Basically there are various famous books for physics out of which HC Verma, dc panday and bm sharma books are among most famous books.
