JIPMER 2021 Preparation tips: 

  1. A proper time table/study plan must be followed to crack the examination. You have to figure out how much time and effort you have to put in on each topic. Concentrate more on your weaker sections. Also, proper study planning will help you finish your syllabus on time.
  2. Solve previous year papers. Although the questions may not be repeated, they will give you an idea about the exam, and about the type of questions that are frequented.
  3. Make an effort to learn the writing style of the toppers. Previous years’ toppers answer sheets can be easily found on the Internet for all subjects by simply googling “best answer sheets”. It is important to know how to write to-the-point answers and do neat and clean work.
  4. Monitor your progress by taking tests. A mock test is a compass which tells us exactly what we need to focus on. It helps in your preparation, self-evaluation, time management and in understanding your weaknesses because the more problems we are exposed to before the actual exam, the more is the likelihood that we would get it right if a similar problem was asked in the actual exam.
