“During the two years of class 11 and 12, I prepared for AIIMS MBBS entrance test. Since from past years, AIIMS is not releasing its question papers, the preparation gets more ambiguous. While there are previous year papers available through multiple sources, none is completely reliable. Thus, I used to practice from JEE preparation books as well,” he said.

Bhavik also enrolled in full-time coaching and Online Test series. “The calculations in AIIMS exam are never straight forward. No one formulae fit in. Thus it is time-consuming and one needs to have a hold of both the concept as well as speed to attain accuracy in the exam. I used to study extensively in a particular topic and made my preparation more focused during class 12. I used to take books for the entrance exam to my school as well and utilize whatever time I got. ”
He said that while he studied daily, there was no fixed schedule. “I studied every day but kept my schedule flexible. I allotted time to a subject based on my interest, inquisitiveness and the requirement of the topic. Sometimes I spent weeks studying the same topic. It is important to cover each subject thoroughly.” said Bansal.
