By virtue of this Act, the Institute awards its own medical degrees and other academic distinctions. At present, there are 9 AIIMS colleges in India that grant admission to MBBS/BDS courses offered by them through the AIIMS MBBS entrance exam.
Consequently, this makes AIIMS MBBS entrance exam one of the most competitive exams held in the country. Therefore, for an aspiring medical student, securing admission in AIIMS is not less than a dream. However, to be able to realize that dream, aspirants need to prepare really well. Here are a few tips that can help you master AIIMS MBBS entrance exam 2019.
1. Revise from NCERT & Advanced-level books
With just two weeks to go for AIIMS MBBS entrance exam, it is essential for you to properly revise the NCERT syllabus of Class 11 and 12. Along with that, you should practice well from advanced level books of Physics and Chemistry and solve as many multiple choice questions as possible. In addition, you must practice questions of quantitative aptitude and logical thinking. Usually, up to 10 questions are based on this section in the exam.
2. Practice Assertion Reason Type Questions
Unlike NEET, AIIMS MBBS entrance exam also tests your reasoning skills. Hence, it is imperative for you to prepare for the same. To improve your reasoning skills, you must thoroughly read your NCERT textbooks. More often than not exact sentences are lifted from the main text, exercises and their answers at the back, etc. The focus should be on words like hence, thus, since, therefore, because, etc, as these words play a key role in determining the correct answer. While the statement that presents an opinion, a fact, or a comment is the assertion, the other statement is the reason. A thorough practice of the same can help you secure a fantastic rank.
3. Brush up your General Knowledge
Although the GK section may not be your priority, it is certainly scoring. Hence, you should keep up to date with the current affairs and also brush up their knowledge of past events and important happenings. Emphasis should be on last one year’s important news and affairs. This knowledge will not only help you bag a good score in AIIMS MBBS entrance exam but will also help you in the future. Therefore, do take out time to attempt the GK section.
4. Practice Computer Based Tests
Unlike NEET which is conducted in pen & paper mode, AIIMS MBBS entrance exam is a Computer Based Test (CBT). It is, thus, common for students who are not familiar with CBT mode to get a little anxious. If you have not had the chance to practice CBT Exam Mode, it is still not late. A good practice of the same can solve the problem for you. So, attempt as many online/CBT mock tests as possible.
5. Devise an Exam Strategy
With barely two weeks to go, it is important for you to devise an exam strategy well in advance. A sound strategy will not only help you get maximum answers right but also help you complete the paper in time. It is, thus, advised to attempt the section that you are most confident about first. Usually, the Physics section takes more time as it requires lengthy calculations. Additionally, you should keep in mind that in the final merit list, your performance in the Biology section will be given maximum leverage. So, you need to devise a strategy keeping all the details and particularities in mind.
6. Pay heed to Negative Marking
It is to be noted that negative marking plays an important role in the exam. While every correct answer will award you 1 mark, for every wrong answer 1/3rd mark will be deducted from your score. Hence, it is strongly recommended to attempt questions that you are very confident about. Otherwise, it can lead to negative marking and consequently a low score.
Apart from that, do not compromise on your sleep. Eat nutritious food and take care of your health. With that, it is important to keep anxious thoughts at bay and not let them interfere with your learning and preparation. Indulging in light exercises, yoga, meditation or just a brisk walk in the lap of nature can help calm your mind and evoke positivity.
