AIIMS is not an easy nut to crack. It needs dedication, hard work and perseverance. Although the cut off for AIIMS general category is 50%, the competition to get through in one of the AIIMS is every medical aspirant’s dream. The most important question is “Can I clear AIIMS in one year?” The answer is positive. It depends on the student and the AIIMS preparation he or she has opted for.
The syllabus is just the same as your 11th and 12th board NCERT books. The only add on is General Knowledge that has many topics from Current Affairs, Punch Lines of Companies, World Records, History, Famous Award and Prizes, Business, Current Affairs etc.
You can start your AIIMS Preparation by dividing one year into four quarters. Each quarter should be dedicated to a specific strategy.
First Quarter (Coaching): If you are targeting AIIMS, it is important that you enroll yourself in AIIMS Coaching. Doing so, you will be benefitted in two ways. You will gain a better perspective on what should be done and what should not be. You can also choose AIIMS online coaching where you have direct access to everything in a classroom sitting at the comfort of your home.
In your first quarter, these are what need to be done
Second Quarter (Test Papers and Time Management): By the second quarter, you should have completed the revision of your 11th standard Science and you have also gotten used to your coaching routine. You can now easily manage to solve papers of previous years so that you have an idea of the pattern of examination that you will have to face.
In the second quarter, you need to follow the points below-
Final Quarter (Judgement Quarter): This is the phase when you should be almost ready.
This is how you can prepare to crack AIIMS in the first go in the first year. Many have cracked in less time too. On the other hand, people have not been able to clear even in two years. It differs from one person to another.
Everything said and done, don’t forget that there is more to keep your body consistent throughout this phase and this is food. With the food, you also need to include fun activities, leisure time and Meditation or Yoga.
How to go about it?
As I already quoted persistence is the key, don’t change your routine at the last minute. A change in the initial phase is acceptable as you know what you are comfortable with. Last minute change can hassle you and make you nervous.
No matter what I said, it is you who will decide the number of hours per day. You will know your grasping power than anyone else would.
These strategies should work for you and help you clear AIIMS in one year.
