What is the correct strategy to prepare for AIIMS PG?

Being regular with your studies is important. It is advisable to start preparations early because if you leave everything for internship period then you will not be able to do well in internship. Also if you get more work load in internship then you will be troubled by lack of preparation.

Two years of rigorous preparation is enough to fetch you a good rank in AIIMS PG 2019/2020.

Is it wise to depend on MCQ repeat based approach?

If you have time, then it is best to study theory completely then practice MCQs. However if time is lacking, then you can go through MCQs of that topic first, see what questions are asked most, and then study theory. However, I repeat, do that only if you lack time. Else do complete theory.

As you study, remember that quality of studies is more important that quantity. So all hours that you put in for preparation, stay away from distractions.
