Interview Excerpts:

Careers360: It is a proud moment. How are you celebrating this achievement?

Ansh Gupta: At this moment, many wishes are coming in from friends, relatives and well-wishers. I am very much happy and I can’t believe that I have secured AIR 3 in AIIMS MBBS 2015. I was expecting a good rank but AIR 3 was unexpected for me. My hard work and good wishes from my family member finally paid off with this outstanding result.

Careers360: Please tell us about your family background?

Ansh Gupta: My father and Mother are doctors and practicing in Hyderabad.Since my childhood, I wanted to follow in my parent’s footstep. It feels great when your parent feels proud because of you.

Careers360: How did you prepare for AIIMS 2015? How much time did you devote for studies?

Ansh Gupta: Actually, I haven’t prepared particularly for AIIMS. I was preparing for JIPMER, AIPMT, TS EAMCET and AP EAMCET simultaneously. I used to study 7 to 8 hours a day including my coaching classes. But, one month before the medical entrance exams, I was studying 12 hours a day. I used to solve previous year question papers and take mock tests, which help me lot to analyze my preparation and gradually enhance my performance level in terms of speed, accuracy and time management.

Careers360: How did you attempt AIIMS 2015 online questions paper? Did you follow any strategy while attempting the question paper?

Ansh Gupta: As Biology is my favorite subject I attempted it first followed by Chemistry and Physics. Then, I attempted GK section followed by English Comprehension. First I attempted the section in which I am strong, it gives me a chance to ease my exam pressure and boost my confidence level

Careers360: What was your preparation strategy?

Ansh Gupta: I kept on learning and practicing whatever topics and concepts taught to me in my class at 10+2 level. I always worked hard for having conceptual understanding rather than cramming. Biology was my strength followed by Chemistry and Physics. With the help of NCERT Books, I have improved my basics concepts. Whatever I was taught in coaching classes, I used to revise and practice the numericals  on daily basis.

Careers360: Have you appeared in AIPMT? Since the paper has been cancelled what is your reaction over this. Will appear for AIPMT 2015 re exam?

Ansh Gupta: It is very unfair to the candidates who actually worked hard and appeared in the test. We had given AIPMT with good preparation and focus. According to me, I would be difficult to give AIPMT again with same level of energy and focus. I will not appear for AIPMT 2015 re-exam because I got my dream medical college.

Careers360: So now that you are among the top rankers in many medical entrances, which college you are planning to join?

Ansh Gupta: Before AIIMS Result, I had made my mind to join JIPMER and was leaving for JIPMER MBBS Counselling which will begin from June 22, 2015 (Monday). But after such an excellent result, I will definitely join AIIMS. As AIIMS is one of the top medical colleges in India and is my dream college too.

Careers360: Do you think coaching is necessary to crack AIIMS MBBS?

Ansh Gupta: I can’t say coaching is necessary to crack AIIMS MBBS but yes it does help in scoring high. My performance was at average level when I started my preparation but with the help of coaching classes and mock tests, I improved a lot. Throughout my preparation, I improved test by test and finally scored good rank in AIIMS.
 

Careers360: Was it all studying for you or there were any recreational breaks during your study hours?

Ansh Gupta: When I was in first year of my college, I used to play Basket Ball as it is my favourite sport. But in second year, my focus was on studies only, so I did not spend much time on other activities. Whenever I get bored from studies, I watched TV. It is important to take short breaks during studies. These breaks helped me in studying with a fresh and focused mind.

Careers360: Any suggestions for AIIMS aspirants?

Ansh Gupta: I would like to tell the future aspirants to study thoroughly your syllabus without missing NCERT Books. Candidates must have clear concept in Physics, Chemistry and Biology subjects. As AIIMS questions are reason and assertion based so it is important to have clear concept of subjects so that one can differentiate between right and wrong options. Time management is the key to score good marks. I advise candidates to first attempt simple and those questions which they feel confident about. And then go for the difficult questions in the second round.
