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.
