14 Tips for AIIMS / AIPGE / PGI / JIPMER Entrance Exams

on with 0 comments

  1. READ INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY. Before you begin the exam, read all of the instructions carefully. Re-read anything that confuses you. If it is still unclear ask the Instructor for clarification.
  2. GUESSING. Find out if there is a penalty for guessing the wrong answer. If there is no penalty, then you should guess. Look at the section on “Intelligent Guessing” for useful guessing strategies.
  3. PLAN YOUR TIME. Figure out about how much time you can spend on each question and each section. Keep track of your time.
  4. DO THE QUESTIONS IN ORDER. Do not skip around. This is a point of disagreement for some. Many argue that you should go ahead and answer all those questions you readily know and then return to the more difficult questions. Both strategies have merit. Just be sure not to miss answering questions if you elect to answer certain questions first. See the next tip.
  5. MARK DIFFICULT QUESTIONS. If you are unsure about an answer, mark the one you think is best, place a question mark in the margin, and go on. Later, if you have time, you can come back to this question.
  6. DON'T PANIC. Everyone draws a blank on a question or two. So if you just can't remember an answer, leave it blank and go on. Again, put a question mark or a check in the margin to remind you to go back. The answer will probably pop into your head as you continue. Pay attention, often other questions provide clues.
  7. READ EACH QUESTION CAREFULLY. If you feel confused, re-read the question. If you remain confused, ask your professor if he can clear up the problem.
  8. DON'T CHANGE AN ANSWER. Unless you have strong reasons to change it, your first answer is usually right.
  9. DON'T WORRY ABOUT FINISIHING FIRST. Don't feel flustered if others finish long before you do. Finishing fast does not mean you have done well! Trust me on this one. I have graded LOTS of exams and fastest does not always mean smartest.
  10. NEGATIVES. Read over all questions with negatives (“not”, “isn't”, “least”).
  11. WATCH FOR MODIFIERS like "always" or "never". Few things are “always” or “never” true.
  12. CHECK OFF ANSWERS you have already used when taking a matching test.
  13. IF YOU CAN'T REMEMBER THE EXACT PHRASE for a fill-in-the-blank question, write in what you can or any explanation of what you do remember.
  14. READ ALL THE ALTERNATIVES for multiple-choice questions. The best answer may come last. And look for grammatical clues in the questions and answer (e.g., plurals and singulars).
