Just two days left for AIPMT examination which is scheduled to be conducted on May 1, 2016. There are three sections that are covered under the AIPMT exam; Physics, Chemistry and Biology and all the three are equally tough. However, Physics happens to be the subject that candidates are mostly nervous about as medical aspirants are usually nervous about the problems they face in solving numericals. Here is our guide to help you best prepare for AIPMT physics:
It is not just the numericals but the vast numbers of theories in physics that makes it a subject of concern. However, by implementing the right techniques, studying and understanding Physics can be made easy. Here, in this article we have mentioned some easy tips to help you prepare for AIPMT physics by toppers of AIPMT. These guidelines were followed by last year’s AIPMT toppers:
The sections roughly covered under AIPMT 2016 Physics are:
- Physical world and measurement
- Work, energy and power
- Laws of motion
- Oscillations and waves
- Electrostatics and current electricity
- Magnetic effects of current and magnetism
Tips to Prepare for AIPMT Physics by Toppers:
How to crack AIPMT without coaching? Its all about the concepts.
Concepts are the key to AIPMT Physics. Basic understanding of all the concepts & reasoning is the one thing a student should focus on. That will help them to understand the topics better. Small concepts can be extracted after reading NCERT & H.C. Verma.
Some of the areas of focus are Kinematics, NLM, Thermodynamics, Heat, Optics and Waves and that would be only possible when you are conceptually strong.
Here are certain PMT preparation tips that students should focus on:
- Theoretical questions on Modern Physics as these are easy and do not have much calculations
- In Thermodynamics and Heat, most of the problems are based on P –Y graphs and hence, easier of biology students to focus
- Focus more on numericals which are directly formula based
- In case of lengthy calculations, try and solve the problems through approximation
NCERT on your tips:
For AIPMT, the text is NCERT and it is really important that you read this text thoroughly not only in physics but in all the other subjects as well to get a good percentage in your 12th board exams.
Experts say that in order to prepare for AIPMT physics, aspirants should go word by word through their NCERT books and also solve problems based on the types of objectives and questions given at the back of each of the chapters in the books.
By keeping NCERT as your base, here are some other books that you can use to improve Physics:
- Concepts of Physics by H.C. Verma
- Concept of Competition Physics for CBSE PMT by Agarwals.
Practice is the word:
Physics has a lot of numericals and numericals need practice. It will help you develop speed & accuracy which plays a very important role in competitive exams like AIPMT. Toppr is a practice platform which can help you practice to improve Physics and your approach to solve a question.
Solve past year question papers:
This is really important and one of the best ways to practice physics before your AIPMT. Toppers claim that there were many topics they found common in two consecutive year question papers and this is a trend that the question paper setters usually follow.
Practicing these question papers would help in exam simulation and at the same time would also improve your accuracy speed. You will also get an idea about the question paper and also the types of questions that you would need to solve in AIPMT exam. Generally, these questions are not direct and hence, getting an idea on the type would help you a lot.
Since you will be studying Biology, making charts and keeping track of names on a daily basis will prove very useful in learning hands-on and will help in revision. Have formulae and periodic table on your fingertips. By the end of your preparation and before you appear for AIPMT 2016, they should become a part of your soul.
Regular Mock Tests:
Take them online or in your respective coaching institutes, but take mock exams at least twice a week. In analyzing your results, focus on your mistakes and never repeat them. Do not obsess over scores right from the beginning. Improvement happens over time with persistent practice.
Apart from these tips to help you prepare for AIPMT physics, having the right books for AIPMT is also crucial.
