Tips and Tricks:
- Ensure that you cover all the topics given in the syllabus. You must not avoid skipping any topic at all.
- Start in a smart systematic way. Start with Class 11th syllabus and then move onto Class 12th syllabus. Hone your skills in the basic concepts.

- If you are preparing from other books then focus more on question banks/ sample papers/ previous papers and buy text books for topics you have doubts in or are weak in.
- Ensure that answers are given when you are buying question banks/ sample papers/previous year papers. This will help you identify and improve on the sections you went wrong with.
- You must prepare a quick revision sheet for each subject. Make a list of difficult points that you think you are likely to forget.
- You must follow a subject-wise study patterns for each subject. For example, use flow charts for Biology Processes, a formulae list for Physics numerical, and mnemonics for Biology and Chemistry.
- Come up with a fresh study timetable every month based on your success or difficulty with the current study schedule.
- Ensure to study 2 subjects per day and try to increase it to 3 subjects to get into the habit of thinking about all 3 subjects that will appear in the exam.
- It’s important to study diagrams because any diagram based questions may come.
- Remember that AIPMT questions are not repeated always. Hence, it is important to revise all topics carefully.
- Spend extra hours honing your skills in Biology because 90 questions are based on it in the exam. Give equal importance to both Botany and Zoology.
- It is important to practice Sample papers and previous year papers in the time limit. Write papers in 3 hours.
- Ensure that you revise twice.
