All India Pre-Medical Test, commonly known as AIPMT, is an all-India annual examination conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education or CBSE. Any student hoping to gain admission into a BDS or MBBS course will need to pass this examination with the required percentage of marks. Here are a few tips from AIPMT toppers which can help you crack the examination with more scores:
Preparing for the exam:
Cover all the topics in the syllabus, without missing even a single chapter. Keep revising all lessons at regular intervals of time.
Develop a strong base in fundamental subjects such as Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
First of all, finish your NCERT books, as they will help in creating your base. Try to cover the entire 11th and 12th NCERT syllabus for your exam.
Try solving previous year papers. Although the questions may not be repeated, they will give you a plan about the exam, and about the type of questions that are frequented in AIPMT.
Try to bifurcate your time equally among all subjects. Instead of focusing on a single subject, try to prepare all subjects in a methodical manner. Decide a time limit and try to finish all your subjects before that time.
Keep practicing unless you perfectly answer all questions while solving practice tests, mock tests or previous year’s papers. Analyze where you make mistakes, and try to avoid them the next time.
During the exam:
There are 200 questions in the AIPMT exam, and you have to complete all of them in 180 minutes. So, if you find any question difficult, do not waste 2-3 minutes on it. Understand that missed questions are a routine part of any examination and you should not panic if you missed some.
Speed during the exam matters a lot. Try to complete your test at least 5-10 minutes before the time limit. This will give you some time to revise the paper and answer any questions that you missed due to hurry. Thoroughly go through your paper before submitting it to the invigilator.
Another important thing you need to keep in mind is negative marking done in AIPMT exam. For each wrong answer, they deduct 1/3rd of your total mark. So, it is better to no answer the question, rather than answering it wrongly.
While preparing for the AIPMT exam, try to keep your mind free of tension and confusion. Try to practice with a positive frame of mind and a positive attitude. Remember, any battle is first won in mind.
Try to keep some free time for yourself so that you can relax your mind and refresh your mood. This will significantly help in increasing your learning ability.
Do not disturb your sleep cycle to make up for the lost time. This will do nothing good, but will not upset your entire body clock. So, do not deprive your body of the relaxation content it needs to have.
Never loose heart. If you find that the question paper you have received does not match up to your preparations, do not decide to just give up. Invest all your energy and acumen to make most out of it.
This is a myth that AIPMT is a very tough test, its questions are very complex and it is extremely difficult to crack. This is not the truth. AIPMT just has a different pattern which needs a different approach to study same subjects that you have already studied in the school. Success in AIPMT lies in practicing regularly and understanding basic fundamentals.
