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.

Aiims and jipmer has cancelled then the cutt off of neet would be low or high

Apoorva Student Expert 30th Mar, 2020

Hello dear student,

Yes dear student AIIMS and JIPMER have been called off the shelves and like a these two bodies used to conduct their own entrance test for the students who wanted to get admission in Medical in MBBS or BDS. But they have combined in NEET only which will be conducted by NTA . This is the first time exam is going to be conducted like this but probably the possibility is that the cutoff will be higher in comparison to the past cutoffs of Neet. I hope this information is helpful to you

Thank you

i have physics, chemistry maths with computer science and English. is there any way i can be eligible for NEET like doing bio from open school or appearing as private candidate if Im willing to take a drop year?

Shruti Jha Student Expert 29th Mar, 2020


Its a difficult yet not impossible task.

Being a pcm branch student till 12th standard doesn't allow you to sit in the neet examination.

But yes, if you really wants to go for mbbs/bds/any medical field for your higher studies then you can opt biology as a course through private or nios boards.

According to different eligibility criterias of neet, nios or private board students are also eligible for neet exams.

The details of this are as-

NEET examination code 2:

Candidates who have completed a period of 12 years under Higher/Secondary examination or the Indian School Certificate Examination (ISCE), which is equivalent to Class 10+2 can opt code 2. However, the last two years of study must include English, Physics, Chemistry, Biology/Biotechnology or Mathematics or any other elective as a major subject as prescribed by the National Council of Education Research and Training (NCERT).

Aspirants who have passed 10+2 from National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) or state open school, as a private candidate from state boards; with Biology/Biotechnology as an additional subject can apply under NEET qualification code 2.

Who can also apply code 2: It should also be noted that the qualifying examination code for NEET 2020 for droppers will also be the same. For instance, a candidate has passed qualifying examination from CBSE/ISCE or any state board in the year 2018, but wish to appear for NEET 2020, he/she can apply for the exam with Code 2.

For more details and informations you can check out the official sites too .

Hope this will help you out.

Good luck.


In Neet marks which sub mark plays an important role in deciding the seat whether physics or bio?? . If suppose 2 students got the same marks how will be the ranking in AIR whether it depends on physics percentile or bio percentile???.

Saisrinandan Ch 29th Mar, 2020


When two candidates get the same marks, then the issue is resolved using the tie breaker policy.

In case of NEET UG, the tie breaker policy gives more importance to Biology.

So, if A scores 300 in Bio and B scores 265 but their total score is same, then A is preferred.

Tie breaker policy doesn't include marks of Physics to resolve such issues.

Only Marks of Bio,Chem and then less number of incorrect answers and finally DOB are considered. (in the same order)

Hope this helps.



how to study for neet 2021. ..

Saisrinandan Ch 29th Mar, 2020


Preparation strategy depends in whether you just got promoted to class 12 or if you are taking a drop year. In case you just got into 12, then for some initial days, your concentration will be only on class 11 syllabus and then you can start class 12.

In both cases, according to me some points are common:

  • NCERT always plays an important role. Thorough revision is a must.
  • You need to solve textual exercises also.
  • Coaching/mentorship will be of very use.
  • Daily you need to equally dedicate your time for all subjects.
  • Purchase reference books/coaching materials.
  • Also, keep some good hobbies.
