Preparation Tips for AIIMS MBBS Entrance Exam 2012: How to Prepare for AIIMS 2012

  • Plain old hard work is the answer to the pertinent question about cracking the AIIMS pre-medical test. Make sure you have the entire syllabus for the test handy. Acquire a set of standard text books from where you can learn and get familiar with all the fundamentals. You should ideally graduate to the other books after having cleared your basics.
  • For those who think they need an external source of discipline, joining a coaching centre is good idea. Not only do they provide you with a schedule to follow on a daily/weekly basis, they also help you assess and gauge yourself against other students in the centre. It would be ideal if you can form a study group comprising of bright students.
  • Old question papers are a gold mine of marks. It is a well-known fact that at least 10% to 30% of the questions in most pre-medical entrance exams including the one of AIIMS have repeat questions. Do not miss out on the opportunity to answer all such question correctly.
  • Practice, practice and practice. Attempting at least 200-300 questions on a daily basis is the easiest way to get top ranks. Attempting questions adds necessary knowledge, refreshes memory and corrects previously retained incorrect concepts and facts. Take as many simulated tests as possible, emulating the actual examination’s timings and atmosphere.
