Careers360: Tell us something about your background.

Bhavik Bansal: I am the first person in my family who opted medicine as a career. My mother and father are Delhi Government employees. I have passed my Class 12 from Vivekananda School, Anand Vihar. Earlier in Class 10, I was in Seth Anandram Jaipuria School, Ghaziabad.

Careers360: What motivated you to pursue medicine as a career?

Bhavik Bansal: It is solely my choice. My parents never tried to influence my choice and always motivated me to do better in my choice of stream.

Careers360: How did your family support you in your journey?

Bhavik Bansal: The priorities were set always in a right manner. They never force me to do something other than what I thought of doing.

Careers360: Could you share with us your overall and subject-wise score in NEET 2019?

Bhavik Bansal: My overall marks in NEET 2019 is 700 out of 720. As per subject-wise marks, I scores, 180 in Physics, 175 in Chemistry and 345 in Biology.

Careers360: Which other medical entrances have you appeared for?

Bhavik Bansal: I have only appeared for AIIMS MBBS.

Careers360: How did you prepare for NEET 2019 while balancing your preparations for the Board exam and other medical entrances?

Bhavik Bansal: The basic thing is that Class 12 and NEET/AIIMS/JIPMER MBBS have same syllabus. So, I revised the complete syllabus for three to four times. It should be remembered that NCERT is the bible for preparations of all subjects. NEET question paper contains 80% to 90% of the questions from NCERT.

Careers360: Tell us about your NEET preparation routine.

Bhavik Bansal: For most of the time, I prepared the topics as hand forgetting about NEET or any other medical exam. I took the mock test and NEET previous year question papers. When I studied the chapter-wise subjects, I used to do it in an intense manner. But that also builds up your concepts.

Careers360: Did you take any coaching or help? How beneficial did it prove?

Bhavik Bansal: Yes, I took classroom program from Aakash Institute, Preet Vihar. They really helped me throughout the two years of my NEET preparations. Yeah.. you always need to edge to prepare for any competitive exams.

Careers360: How much time did you devote in self-study vs. coaching?

Bhavik Bansal: My self-study schedule was quite irregular based on the topic. There was time table which I followed. The coaching centre from Class 11, it was a regular easy coaching for four hours a day. However, later in Class 12, they intensified the classes. There was no fixed timings in the weekdays and there was 6-8 hours of classes on the weekends or holidays.

Careers360: What was your exam day strategy for all three subjects, namely Physics, Chemistry and Biology?

Bhavik Bansal: I always made a strategy to attempt Biology, followed by Chemistry and Physics. NEET 2019 exam for the year 2019-20 was not lengthy enough, therefore my strategy has not worked. But the weightage of questions asked every year in the NEET exam is the same.

Careers360: Which according to you were the toughest and easiest sections?

Bhavik Bansal: NEET 2019 paper was easy. I did not find any tougher or easiest section. Though there were some controversial questions in Biology, which are still to be rectified till date. After the challenging around 7 to 8 Biology questions in NEET answer key 2019, NTA has only corrected three of them.

Careers360: How did you tackle your strong and weak areas?

Bhavik Bansal: Through the last two years, I always prepared for AIIMS, not for NEET. I used to solve only difficult questions from Physics for AIIMS MBBS 2019 exam.

Careers360: What are your hobbies? Did you engage in them during the preparations?

Bhavik Bansal: Yeah sure. I love PC gaming and watching youtube. I never left my passion for watching social media for the preparations. I do watch stand-up comedy and science related videos.

Careers360: What factors would you attribute this success to?

Bhavik Bansal: This is a difficult one. I cannot pin-point a single one in the last two years. Small things summed up to a book.

Careers360: Any particular college you have in mind for admission?

Bhavik Bansal: Definitely, AIIMS, New Delhi. I am actually waiting for the results which will be announced by June 12.

Careers360: Where do you see yourself in the next 10 years?

Bhavik Bansal: I cannot say anything. Most probably, I will go into medicine research. But still, no one knows their future.

Careers360: Any message or advice for future medical aspirants?

Bhavik Bansal: I would strongly like to suggest that NCERT should be followed thoroughly. Medical candidates should consider NCERT as the Bhagavad Gita, as it is the basic of all syllabus. I find most of the students focusing more on the 10% questions, which will be asked out of the syllabus. However, if you will go through the 90% NCERT concepts, there will be nothing to stop you from getting admissions in the best government colleges. Aspirants should be confident enough to appear for the entrance exam.
