JIPMER PG 2019 Preparation Tips

Regularity Pays: Going by the words of many toppers of JIPMER PG, being regular and consistent with your preparation always work. It is advised to all those candidates preparing for JIPMER PG 2019, being regular with the course of preparation always prove fruitful. Consistency helps. It is not needed to study 24*7 but for whatever amount that one prepares, it should be consistent. Fix a timetable, distribute time accordingly by focusing on subjects/topics of weakness more.

Make Notes: This might seem an age-old saying but making notes makes one more familiar with the concerned preparation. Studying in bulk for different subjects and topics, after a certain period of time, gets hard to retain. But if with proper precision since the start of his/her preparation a candidate maintains self-made notes, it is easier to retain. These notes can also be used as quick notes a few days prior to JIPMER 2019. Inculcating the habit of self-made notes from the start of one’s preparation will give the candidate a sense of clarity since the start for, he/she will know in which section more attention was needed or how much time was given in preparing notes for any said subject/topic.

Give Grand Simulation Tests: As JIPMER PG 2019 will be a Computer Based Test, a smart way to prepare will be going to the computer centers and giving the complete simulated tests instead of going for topic/subject-wise mock tests. Doing so will also make the candidates familiar with frequently asked topics and this will only enhance their preparation.

Attempt Mock Tests: It is strictly advised to candidates that taking mock tests for their JIPMER PG 2019 preparation is needed in order to procure a good rank. Taking mock tests towards the end of one’s preparation gives the concerned aspirant a clear self-assessment. And as proven any day, self-evaluation and assessment keep one on edge with his/her preparation.

Do not Start New: Picking onto new topics just a few days prior to the exam will only create a pool of confusion for one. Hence, it is always advised to go for revision instead of picking a new topic altogether. Here comes the importance of notes also. Those candidates preparing for JIPMER PG 2019 who referred their notes in terms of revision instead of picking a new topic will be more strategically prepared and devoid of any last minute confusion.
