Careers360: Congratulations on your result! You have not only got AIR 2 in JIPMER MBBS but also rank among the top 10 in AIIMS? How are you celebrating?

Arushi:Thanks a lot. I was so surprised when I got to know that I am among the top ten rankers in both the exams. I celebrated this victory with my parents and teachers because of whom I could perform well.

Careers360: Tell us how you prepared for the tests? Which books did you refer to during the preparation phase?

Arushi: My childhood dream of becoming a successful doctor kept me motivated during all the ups and downs of my preparation. Whenever I sat down for studies, I made sure that I do it with complete dedication. I avoided all kinds of distractions including social media as well. Also, I was not able to spend time with my friends as studies kept me busy. But I realise now that all this sacrifice and my hard work has finally paid so well.

As far as books are concerned, I referred to NCERT for all subjects. I also studied from HC Verma for Physics and Shri Balaji Publications for Chemistry preparation.     


Careers360: Did you have any schedule? How much time did you give to your studies?

Arushi: Yes, I did. I used to study for 10-12 hours daily, and that too with complete attention.


Careers360: Tell us what made you choose medicine as your profession?

Arushi: Since my childhood, I have been fascinated with the medical profession and dreamt of entering this field. When I was studying in higher classes, I was sure that I wanted to make my career in this field. Moreover, Biology always made me curious about the workings of the body. Medicine is a natural choice for me. 


Careers360: What you did to manage your stress level during studies?

Arushi: Whenever I got tired after long hours of studies, I used to listen to soothing songs. This helped me a lot in relaxing my mind.


Careers360: Tell us something about your family. How did your parents support you during your preparation?

Arushi: Both my parents are government employees. I have an elder brother who is pursuing electrical engineering from IIT, Mandi. All of them were very supportive throughout the preparation phase. Whenever I felt low, their inspirational talks helped me in giving my best shot.


Careers360: Please share your message for future medical aspirants.

Arushi: I want to advise all aspirants to be happy throughout their preparation period. Never get distracted and always remember that 100% sincere efforts are required in order to achieve your goal of getting admission in a prestigious institute. Just enjoy your studies and give your best.

What will be the difficulty level of neet 2020 as Aiims and Jipmer included under neet?

Aditya kumar Student Expert 13th Nov, 2019
Hello there!
No , difficulty level of level of neet will not be increased , it is just that admission in all the aiims and Jipmer will be based on the marks obtained by you in neet examination as well in addition to all the other medical colleges of India  but when it comes to neet then everything thing is pretty same i.e. eligible criteria, question paper pattern, difficulty level etc is still the same so you do not need to worry about it at all . Just focus on your preparation, prepare well , good luck.

How much i have to score in NEET for mbbs college or aiims college.

Apoorva Student Expert 12th Nov, 2019
Hello dear student,
I understand your query dear student but as you have not mentioned your category and I hope you are aware that JIPMER, AIIMS like exams have been scraped off from the shelves that is they won't be conducted separately instead NTA will conduct Neet in 3rd may 2020 . And seats of AIIMS and JIPMER will be merged in neet only . So you can expect slight increase in the competition as need will be the only exam that is going to be conducted nationally for the students who are appearing in medical field. Try to keep your marks above 580 if you are belonging from general category and if from reserved category keep it above 520 to 540 because likewise you will be  on a safer side to gain a seat in any government medical colleges. I hope this was helpful to you.
Thank you
