THE INSIDE STORY
Here I am just giving you a bird view of many entrance exams.. may be its very difficult to be specific but it does explain you something about each exam.
Hmmm.. I was not able to clear it though.. had got 328 rank,, not bad after a preparation of 6 month. Do fill the form.. many people will advise u not to waste money and time to give it.. people will say “ are!! Getting rank in Aiims is impossible at first attempt”… yup… but never give exam thinking that u need to get a seat in it.. but give it to test urself
Your actual preparation starts when you give Aiims exam.. its then you come to know how much you were able to recollect at the exam day. So you all should try it once.
I loved this one.. one of the best which most of you miss.. generally Dec session, romantic weather, just love it… now when it comes to PGI entrance exam , the seats are less too.,, quite similar to Aiims.. but I guess very few people apply for it,, but the advantage of giving PGI is you all will get your result within 8 hours… quite different than in Aiims.. getting an instant result in PGI boosts your moral,, unlike the Aiims where your have to wait for months to get to know your rank.. the question are mostly repeated from past PGI papers . Hence doing those papers from bytes are out most imp.. the top 10 rank varies In just few point percentages. So in those 100 question max 90 should be attempted.. believe me .. it’s true that most of the time guess works do go wrong..
So no matter who says … do give PGI.. its worth..
Although lost it by 3%.. l,, but believe me.. they follow a set of pattern for exam.. most of the questions are repeated. It takes around an hour to mark those repeated question.. but the most difficult task Is to answer the new once,, anyway each question is imp.. marking the repeated question is most imp first than the new once.. so make sure you do medical papers too specially from other subjects. When you reading mudit khanna, do read all subjects , then mark the question which is related to you.. for example chromosome questions is given in pediatrics in their subject but its related to us also.. it’s here your effort makes a difference.. without medical papers you won’t be able to clear AIPG, and you need to follow the same rule for Aiims medical papers too. They do ask question from national boards papers mostly from the 70’s papers.. but make sure you have done rest of the books before doing this.. and yes.. you need to remember the other main thing also.. The negative marking.. that costs a lot.. I advise you all to mark max around 170-180,, not more than that because the cutoff generally ranges from 65% to 75%.
Yes.. it’s one of the most imp exams.. but the people who are giving the 1st attempt should not lose hope if they don’t clear it .. you need time for it.. maybe there are many who took a drop a year and I am sure they do deserve something more from it.. if you truly deserve it you will get it.. if not then make sure you give the best attempt till the last exams..
This is a Karnataka state entrance exam.. it’s like any state exam.. but one of the imp one.. the question are almost repeated and hardly any new things.. but it’s not that easy.. the seats are less and there are many people with same marks and yes.. reservation screws you when it comes to Kcet too.. hardly any use if you cross 25 ranks in GM.. but keeping the expectation apart, work had to reach that top 10 so that you get the dream branch.. yes.. the fees is quite more than the AIPG but it’s quite less compared to Comed and other exams.. and there is no negative marking.. be careful while attempting.. each mark is crucial.. also.. last year paper was indeed tough… so u need to be good with theory hence forth
People say,.,, its toughest after AIPG.. I don’t believe that,, yes I do agree that this exam is quite competitive and tests you to the core,, why?? I will tell you
The questions are mostly found in the discussion matter of all those books which has been mentioned, and specially past 2 years of Kcet and comed-K medical papers..
The main difference is the set of options they provide.. they really confuse you.. most of the options are so twisted , that really don’t cross your mind.. it just looks difficult.. but you need to understand the question properly then find the answer,, if you really don’t know what they have asked then answering comed-K becomes damn difficult.180 questions.. quite lot of time.. no extra prep… but take time to answer.. follow the rule of four.
One of the genuine one.. in fact more genuine than AIPG.. you get marks with a click of the mouse button. During my time the pattern was quite different.. but I guess the exam consists of 200 questions now and there is no negative marking also,, and I guess the Manipal reservation is also removed from this year.. and the number of seats are more as it included two colleges., I really don’t know the latest pattern but I do believe one thing.. the questions are mostly theory oriented and taken directly from the textbooks.. so this is quite difficult, but not impossible.. repeated questions r quite less.
Please don’t make a special prep for this.. just go and try your luck,, but AIPG prep + luck does give you a rank here..
hmmm.. quite good… special preparation not needed.. mostly asked from recent papers and pulse and Dentest.. Specially from synopsis
The last one!!
I have been asked by many,, may be ,,I am still young to answer.. just doing my MDS, quite far from what’s called reality ,, many new aspirants to ask me one complicated question…
IS IT REALLY NECESSARY TO MDS?
IS IT WORTH DOING?
HOW MUCH SALARY WILL GET AFTER MDS?
MY FRIEND SAYS U CAN LEARN ALL THE THINGS IN CLINIC ONLY.. WHY SHOULD I WASTE MY 3 YEARS?
Hold on… first think whether you will be make it.. clearing a entrance with a GM category is in fact very difficult… before asking question first see how much your are capable of committing to it.. its note easy..
And when it comes to those question.. remember “YOU DON’T KNOW UNLESS U TRY”
For each individual priorities are different, but money is not the only thing.. there is something called a dream, a hope, a satisfaction for an individual, for me MDS was dream.. and I really don’t care for the future because god really don’t give chances always,, isn’t it?.. Yeh I do say that budget matters, except for AIIMSs, AIPG, and PGI , in other exams ,fees are high.. in fact I too would have dropped the idea I did not had such supporting family.. but you should not keep the KCET and Comed fees in mind and start prep.. in fact you should not think about seat at all.. you should only struggle hard to achieve that perfection which clears you through AIPG,.. yes I do agree that you might not clear at the end.. but you really can’t keep the negative thoughts and starts prep… its your thoughts which make impossible – possible.. be ready to face the reality but don’t be fooled by the fear of failure at the start of entrance prep. It makes a lot of difference.
If you really feel MDS is not an option for then, dude,,, shift to some other field,, may be u might shine there,, but if your strong enough to face each problem of life then come.. sail with us.
I have seen many who have left the prep in middle, may be due to some family problem, some other, but you all need to remember one thing.. Study is not everything in MDS prep.. it’s how you manage friends, how you mange time, how you manage your parents force to put a clinic or how to manage the force of your boyfriend/ girlfriend marriage proposal.. the winner is one who manages all these things and still completes the task of reading at stands in front of the exam center with that deep confidence of achieving something special at the end.. the fear, the adrenaline rush which he feels when he get the result… the depression when he/she need to face when he tastes the failure for the first time..
Remember..MDS is not life. But it’s a part,.. life is game… and these are the part of it.. you really don’t know where’s your destiny, but until you play the game of life,,, until you move with it,, you never know where you will end up..
So start playing now.. who knows… you might be next one to write another beautiful page in the story called .. “ WINNER”
And for the new aspirants who think it’s impossible.. Remember “THE GREAT PLEASURE IN LIFE IS IN DOING WHAT PEOPLE SAY YOU CAN NOT DO”
