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.

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.

Know the Neet syllabus & what’s important
Study all the chapters taught in class 11 and 12 thoroughly. 70 to 80 percent of the overall questions are either directly taken from NCERT or are an advanced form of its learnings. Before you take on the study effort, go through the previous years' papers, so much so that, you can identify the important topics and concepts. Study those thoroughly, and prioritize these topics before you move to the less important ones.
Make a study strategy
Ensure you make a good timetable that includes solving test papers, regular revisions, and small breaks to help you recuperate and start afresh. Strictly abide by it and allocate more time to difficult subjects. Make it a habit to cover difficult topics along with interesting ones so that preparation does not become monotonous. Keep a track of time as you do not want one chapter to consume time and affect your overall study plan.
Solve test papers
As soon as you complete your syllabus, start solving as many test papers as you can. As the final date approaches, solve 3-4 test papers/mocks tests a day. Try to complete the test papers within the designated time. Demarcate the questions where you made a mistake and identify its cause. Revise all the incorrectly attempted questions well. In this manner, you will be able to understand your weaknesses better and prepare strategically, which is very important for a competitive exam like NEET.
Along with your mock test papers take some time out to revise lessons. This should begin after you have completed studying all the lessons. If you are facing difficulty in grasping a certain topic, formula, diagram, etc, prepare a learning aid (like flashcards) and fix it in front of your study table. Do not be overconfident about your preparation and pay attention to the technique applied to crack the question while you’re revising.
Develop your own study technique
Every student will have a different strategy to crack the exam. While preparing for a competitive exam like NEET, follow a study technique that helps you recall your lessons well and allows you to solve the paper in the stipulated time. Follow the one that suits you best and adhere to the pattern till the day of examination. Do not panic and alter your strategy a few days before the exam - this is likely to hamper your preparation and affect your confidence before the examination.
