With All India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT) is just two days away; there is a lot of nervousness among students appearing for the exam. According to experts, time has come to remain positive and confident before the exam.
Central Board of Secondary Education counsellor Rakesh Sachdeva said the exam was all about triumph over fear. “A final revision is a must to succeed in any entrance exam. You must start your final revision at least 8-10 days before the AIPMT.
At this stage don’t try to lear n any new concepts and don’t read any theory from a new book. Try to consolidate all that you have already done in all the three subjects, she said.
Arvind Goyal, a city-based academician, said since biology carries 50% weightage in the AIPMT, which means 90 of the total 180 questions will be from biology, students should concentrate and spend more time on revising biology before the exam.
“Students should concentrate more on revising NCERT biolo g y textbook of Class 11 and 12. Go through each and every diagram and learn even the names of the scientists and their achievements and t he dates mentioned in the book, he said and added that candidates should revise examples of Morphology, Anatomy and Kingdoms just prior to the AIPMT.
Vivek Gulati, a local physics teacher, said in physics, just revise t he for mula char t of each chapter which you must have prepared already and try to solve the previous year PMT papers.
Chemistry experts have advised the students to do last minute revision of the formulae of physical chemistry, the list of characters and formulae of important chemicals and minerals.
The CBSE, which is conducting the exam, has made several centres here. A CBSE official said students were advised to follow the instructions carefully before attempting the exam.
Aanandi, a local medical aspirant, said she had been spending more than 8-10 hours for the preparation. “I am completely avoiding distractions that lose my concentration,” she said.
Experts said at least eight hours of slee p was required before t he exam. Students should not go empty stomach for any exam. They should take their normal breakfast, as their brain cells would need that glucose to perform their best.
“Keep your roll number, admit card, wrist watch, photograph and exam kit together on the previous night so that you don’t forget anything in the mor ning before the exam.
Digital watches with calculator are not allowed, as mentioned in the prospectus, so to be on the safe side take along an analogue watch so that there is no confusion there, Sanjay Ahlawat, a local teacher, said.
