NEET will be held on May 6, 2018, AIIMS MBBS is scheduled for May 26 & 27, 2018, and JIPMER MBBS will be conducted on June 3, 2018. With only a month left for NEET 2018 and a little more for AIIMS MBBS 2018 and JIPMER MBBS 2018, anxieties are building up and students are getting jittery at the prospect of covering vast syllabi and handling these tough exams simultaneously. As overwhelming as it may seem to appear for all three consecutively within the span of a few days, the trick lies in not treating them differently from each other, suggests Deric Joseph, topper in all three MBBS entrance exams in 2017 with All India Rank (AIR) 6 in NEET, AIR 16 in AIIMS and AIR 17 in JIPMER. According to him, “There is no alternative but hard work. The syllabus is the same and if you keep your focus on gaining conceptual clarity instead of rote learning, it won’t make much difference which exam you sit for”.

What students should keep in mind is that the challenge of scoring good marks in all three of NEET, AIIMS and JIPMER can be met by having a lucid understanding of exam patterns and devising a solid preparation plan.

 

Common preparation tips for NEET, AIIMS MBBS and JIPMER MBBS

 

Combining the preparation for all three medical entrances is a commonly agreed upon strategy by teachers and toppers alike since the syllabus and core study material are the same for all. Here are some NEET 2018, AIIMS MBBS 2018 and JIPMER MBBS 2018 preparation mantras.

 

Craft a solid study plan: With only around 40 days remaining for NEET, it is important that preparations for the exams are optimized as per the time left. Aspirants can maintain a calendar beside their study table encircling the important exam dates of NEET 2018, AIIMS MBBS 2018 and JIPMER MBBS 2018. This will act as a useful reminder in terms of how much time is left and subconsciously guide one’s preparation speed. Based on the preparation levels, draft the study routine and divide time between topics of Physics, Chemistry and Biology. The NEET 2018, AIIMS MBBS 2018 and JIPMER MBBS 2018 preparation study routine should take into account the time needed for solving sample papers and covering the entire syllabus.

 

Focus on conceptual clarity: Aspirants possessing clarity of concepts will be able to shine in all the exams. Hence, it is important to focus on gaining conceptual clarity instead of rote learning. However, asserting on conceptual clarity doesn’t mean that one should get overwhelmed with the unnecessary details and information in these last weeks.

 

Subject-wise preparation of ‘hot topics’: It is natural to have favourites amongst Physics, Chemistry and Biology, but a smart preparation plan for NEET 2018, AIIMS MBBS 2018 and JIPMER MBBS 2018 entails balanced studies.

Candidates can divide each subject’s chapters into ‘Major’ and ‘Minor’, including high-scoring and low-scoring chapters respectively. While the syllabus of Physics, Chemistry and Biology is same for NEET 2018, AIIMS MBBS 2018 and JIPMER MBBS 2018, and similar type MCQs are asked in all three entrances, AIIMS MBBS 2018 differs in the respect that a lot of Assertion-Reason questions are asked in it. Do the revision of chapters and solve mocks/sample question papers every day, suggests Deric while talking about his subject-wise preparation strategy.

 

Mock Tests: Do not wait until the syllabus is completed for starting full-length mock tests. As a thumb rule, “the frequency of mocks and previous year papers should increase in the last few months”, recommends Deric. Analyse your performance afterwards and try to gauge the ‘Raw Score’. The Raw Score represents one’s true score after eliminating intelligent or blind guesses. If the Raw Score increases with mocks, it would mean that the right preparation strategy is being followed.

 

Revision Strategy: Revisions should be the hallmark of final months. Candidates can prepare concept sheets containing subject-wise formulas and important points for easy reference.

 

How NOT to prepare for NEET/AIIMS/JIPMER?

Knowing what must be done does away with fear and knowing what must NOT be done instils trust in what is done. Candidates are advised to NOT do the following during their NEET, AIIMS and JIPMER preparations.

  • Do not leave preparation of one subject in favour of another. Do a balanced study as each subject play a decisive role in determining the final score and rank.

  • Do not blindly attempt mocks. Analyze your performance after each mock.

  • Do not extend study hours beyond healthy levels. Engage in suitable stress-relieving activities.

  • Do not get stuck with difficult questions. Spend only limited time on them and move on to the other high-scoring moderate to easy questions.
