How to Prepare for AFMC 2018 Stroke 396

Preparation Tips

For NEET
  • Understand the NEET syllabus well as it is the equivalent of the CBSE syllabus for Classes 11 and 12. Use this fact to stick hard and fast to the syllabus. For a deeper hold on topics, check Toppr learn.
  • Practice lots of questions to improve your accuracy. Toppr offers you a huge question bank brimming with challenging questions!
  • Prepare important topics very thoroughly, as the most frequently asked topics rarely fetch easy questions. Grasping them well will enhance your chances at scoring better in the exam. Make sure you understand important topics and their weightage in previous years' papers.
  • Some of the questions asked are applicative and should be practised well.
  • Solving previous years’ papers will familiarize you with the type of questions that are asked in the exam, and also simulate an exam-like environment. This is why you must make sure that you solve sample papers and previous years’ papers.
  • Make sure to strategize comprehensively about the exam beforehand
  • Make sure to refer tips to clear NEET and effortlessly cross all hurdles!
For ToELR
  • Take a few basic tests based on English comprehension, synonyms and antonyms
  • Have a general, overall knowledge of the language
  • For Maths and Logical Reasoning, presence of mind is required. You can develop on this through sufficient practice from the books recommended later in the page
For the Interview
  • If you have attached certificates of achievement in any extracurricular activity, be mentally prepared to be tested on that
  • Your hobbies might be another thing you’re tested upon. If you’ve mentioned that you like acting, the interviewers might ask you to do a scene from some famous movie! Do not freak out at such times. Just do whatever you are asked to.
  • You should be ready to answer why you want to join AFMC. Again, be truthful.
  • Read up about things like ‘health problems in your area’, ‘your state’, ‘its specialities’ and more. In fact, read up entire articles on your city and state from Wikipedia. For current affairs, just regularly read newspapers for a couple of days before your interview.
