NEET PG 2021 : 3 answered questions

Ques. How should someone prepare for NEET-PG/AIIMS-PG/JIPMER-PG/PGIMER/SGPGIMS/NIMHANS right from 1st year of MBBS?

● Top Answer By Tezal Dahiya on 08 Jan 21

Ans. One of my friends faced the same situation in his first year in MBBS and never found a solution. However, you will find the answer by the time you come in 3rd-year. The following table provides some recent information about the availability of seats in PG. Total number of MD + MS + Diploma seats in India 28,715 Total number of MD+ MS+ Diploma government seats. 18,657 Number of Government qualified PG institutes in India 64 Key highlights: The first task is to build the concepts and not get puzzled by everything. Those concepts will have to be applied to answer MCQs in the PG entrance exams. The topics which are in high demand must be given prime priority. A priority list can be made by going through the previous year's papers and sorting out the necessary topics. Understanding the format of the exam is utterly necessary and is the key to crack it. While solving a question, you must apply knowledge from two or more subjects. All dissection, physiology, and biochemistry practical classes are very essential and the student should attend them. Those even help in pathology in the upcoming years of study. If necessary, the candidate can think of taking a coaching class from the 3rd year of MBBS for PG entrances. It is not usually preferred to opt for in the early years. Finally, the student should work as planned throughout the preparation. Having a passion for medical knowledge plays an important role to convert the hard-work into success.Read more

Ques. Can someone simultaneously prepare for both AIIMS PG and NEET PG?

● Top Answer By Aniket Atul Mahulikar on 08 Jan 21

Ans. Yes, it is absolutely possible for someone to prepare for both AIIMS PG and NEET PG simultaneously. For that, there are a few points to consider which are stated below. The following table states the recent seat count available from NEET PG and AIIMS PG. Total Number of MD + MS + Diploma seats under NEET PG (Government + Private) 27,979 Total Number of MD+ MS+ Diploma Government seats under NEET PG 17,921 Total Number of MD + MS seats under AIIMS PG 680 Points to consider: AIIMS PG entrance takes place in November, whereas the NEET PG entrance is in January. So, it’s very natural to get tired after appearing in AIIMS if the candidate has high hopes for AIIMS. Therefore, it’s better to take a break for at least a week or until the result comes, after which the candidate is sure about whether to prepare for NEET PG or not. The syllabus and pattern for both AIIMS and NEET PG are the same. So, it will become easy for candidates to cover the entire course and practice accordingly. The syllabus should be covered subject-wise and as planned in one’s own strategy. After AIIMS is over, try to practice NEET PG mock tests in order to understand the pattern. You must focus more on the core knowledge and a brief overview of the updates would be enough. Do not feel stressed if you haven’t cleared AIIMS PG. You can give your best shot in NEET in a month's time and full-focus can do well. Having a similar structure and syllabus, both exams have a common way of preparation which needs to be covered at an early stage and the advanced preparation following it. So, simultaneous preparation is always possible.Read more

Ques. How much Hard is to get an MD/MS seat through NEET PG or AIIMS PG?

● Top Answer By Tiyasha Das Gupta on 08 Jan 21

Ans. To be very honest, to get an MD/MS seat through NEET PG or AIIMS PG is not an impossible task. It requires a lot of focus, dedication, and appropriate preparation. The table below will give some recent insights about NEET PG and AIIMS PG. Total Number of MD + MS + Diploma seats under NEET PG (Government + Private) 27,979 Total Number of MD+ MS+ Diploma Government seats under NEET PG 17,921 Total Number of MD + MS seats under AIIMS PG 680 Number of candidates registered for NEET PG (2020) 1,67,102 Number of candidates qualified NEET PG (2020) 89,549 Number of candidates registered for AIIMS PG (2020) 30,000 (approx.) Key highlights: The main thing to keep in mind is that ‘Focus and Dedication’ make everything sorted. You must focus on proper preparation from the 1st year of MBBS. You will be required to do an internship after 4 years of MBBS. The time spent during the internship can be used in preparation for NEET PG or AIIMS PG.  For some candidates, taking a drop of a year for preparation suits best. While for the rest, preparation along with internship and regular practice is enough. It is very difficult to manage all subjects in a short period of time. The syllabus for the exam is also not fixed. Getting a seat in AIIMS PG is definitely a more difficult option than in NEET PG. For candidates having full faith, they should have a more refined and clear in-depth concept for the exams. If you are dedicated from the beginning, it is very easy to secure a seat through any entrance exam. Having a proper strategy from the initial days is the key to success in every competitive stage.Read more
