Careers360: Which other exams did you take?
Priya Setia:I took almost all the popular Medical Entrance Exams in 2013. Apart from NEET, I also qualified the entrance exams AIIMS, CMC Ludhiana, JIPMER and BHU.
AIIMS: Rank 186
CMC Ludhiana: Rank 7
JIPMER: Rank 141
BHU: Rank 35
Careers360: What were your scores in 11th and 12th? Do think that candidates need to prepare separately for board exam and Pre-Medical Test?
Priya Setia: I have done my class 11 & 12 from CBSE Board. I scored 89.6% in Class 11 and 97.6% in class 12 with distinction in Physics. I like reading Physics and it is my favorite subject.
I personally feel that there is no need of studying for boards separately because studying for NEET is covered in the board syllabus. The NEET syllabus is comprehensively designed on the NCERT pattern so both of these go hand in hand.
Careers360: What was your preparation strategy for Pre-Medical Test?
Priya Setia: I decided to take medical as my career during vacations after class 10 exam. My father who is also a doctor inspired me to pursue MBBS from good colleges of India. And from there my plan for doing MBBS begun. For doing MBBS from good medical institutes of India, I prepare the mindset first and then accordingly choke out the plan.
Then the journey of hard work began. I studied the material on regular basis. It is better to say routine study. I pay proper attention on test which helped me lot in improving myself. I advised students to take test on regular basis because it enhances your performance and gives you chance to analyze your preparation.
As far as preparation strategy is concerned, I feel NCERT should be thoroughly studied. For improving physics I used to solve a lot of numerical.
Careers360: What were your weak points and what were the stronger ones? How did you tackle your weakness?
Priya Setia: Thought of the exam brings the nervousness. Single exam is deciding your future and 2 years of hard work made me more nervous. I was afraid whether I would be able to manage time effectively and avoid silly mistakes during the exam. In short I wanted to give my 100% in entrance exam of NEET.
I tackled my weakness of becoming nervous by joining various test series to learn time management. Regular analysis of performance through mock test series helped me lot in analysis of performance which gradually boost my confidence.
I feel Physics is my strength. I liked Physics and loved to solve numerical. This helped me in building my confidence towards the effort that I was putting.
Careers360: Do you think coaching is important for the AIPMT aspirants? If some aspirant can’t afford coaching, in what way he must prepare for the AIPMT Exam?
Priya Setia: Yes, I personally feel coaching helped me a lot. It made me sincere and regular. It also provided me a competitive environment which I would have never got at home.
For aspirants who can’t afford coaching, time management is something they usually lack. Setting up schedule, joining online test series can help them to tackle this problem. At the same time it will also provide them a competitive environment that ultimately helped them in boosting their performance and learning and the same helped me too.

Careers360: What tips would you like to share with the AIPMT aspirants?
Priya Setia: I would suggest Pre Medical Test aspirants should study NCERT thoroughly. They must study their course regularly on routine basis. I personally feel that solving more and more numerical helps in scoring marks in entrance exam. And at last but not least you must have faith in your potential because your confidence and attitude at the end matter the most.
