Video Lecture Series by PMT Gurumantra


PMT Gurumantra has now launched a you tube channel to guide the students preparing for medical entrance examinations.

The first video lecture in the series “How to prepare for Medical Entrance Examinations” covers five of the frequently asked doubts of students.

 

 

It’s our first video. There are few glitches. Editing has not been quite fine. Uniform pacing hasn’t been maintained. I am trying to learn the art of making videos. Kindly forgive. Hope you like our initiative.

Please share this video with your friends.
We’ll be uploading more videos quite soon. So, subscribe to our channel and stay tuned 🙂

Strategy to follow for the AIPMT for the last one month.


Good basics – Not all questions are difficult. Most of the questions only appear difficult because you busy were learning the tough chapters and left out the basics.
Practice tests – The more you practice the more confident you are. Helps improve your speed and approach towards questions. There are always a few favourite and repeated questions. Practice tests will help you find them and answer them in less than a second.
Prepare wisely – Know which chapters have more weightage and concentrate more on those chapters. You CANNOT make mistakes in those few chapters.
Time – Time is the villain. No matter how hard you study and how good your basics are, if you can’t manage your time, everything’s going down the gutter. Do not waste time on questions you don’t know. And mock tests help in learning how to manage time.
Read the question properly – In the process of managing time we tend to misread the questions. So read the question properly
Scores – Every time you take a test, check your score. Check where you stand and always aim high. If you want to end up in top college, you can’t be happy with your score if it is not very very good. Having said that, do not get disheartened if you don’t score well.
There is always a next test and a scope to improve.
Health – Last but not the least. You can’t become a good doctor if you are not in good health yourself. So take care of yourself. Nothing is more important than your health.

All the very best !!

Four Long Years. Over One Million Hits. Let’s Stay Connected.


So, it has been a 4 years long journey. At the same time, PMT Gurumantra has crossed one million hits mark. I am very grateful for the love and affection you people have bestowed on us. It’s only because of the word of mouth that a large section of students now know about my books and blog.

I would like to thank all the mentors associated with this blog: Vaibhav, Sushant, Deepak and others.. I  would like to request all the people who had been following my blog and have got selected, to step up and take the legacy of guiding PMT aspirants forwards.

And there’s one more thing. People keep asking me about my forthcoming books on Physics and chemistry. Sorry…due to paucity of time, I was not able to pursue the work further. The manuscript is still incomplete. The project has been indefinitely postponed.

Lastly, AIPMT has been cancelled this time and a fresh exam will be conducted very soon. Wishing you people All The Best! Still there’s time. Study Hard.

We will meet soon. Till then, Read my past blog posts and replies to past queries. Hope you will find it useful.

Happy Studying 🙂

REVISE BIOLOGY FOR MEDICAL ENTRANCE EXAMS…


Hi Friends,
I hope you are trying your best for achieving success in PMTs. Some of you may be feeling a lot of confusion in revising the topics so I am posting revision preference and brief details about what to do beyond NCERT and test papers…..
1.HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY- extra knowledge may be require for AIIMS,BHU etc.
2.PLANT PHYSIOLOGY- need coaching notes in photosynthesis and mineral nutrition.
3.ECOLOGY-NCERT sufficient
4.PLANT CLASSIFICATION-look at angiosperm classification else where.
5.ANIMAL CLASSIFICATION- NCERT sufficient but need specimen study for AIIMS.
6.APPLICATION BIOLOGY-NCERT sufficient.
7.GENETICS-look outside for deviations from Mendel laws and pedigree.
8.HUMAN AND PLANT REPRODUCTION-NCERT sufficient.
9.CYTOLOGY-NCERT sufficient.
10.BIOTECHNOLOGY AND EVOLUTION-NCERT sufficient.

NOTE: Focus yourself only on NEET this time. Keep revising NCERT and solve at least one paper daily.

Wish you good luck….

STUDY MATERIAL TIPS FOR AIIMS AND AIPMT BY VAIBHAV TRIVEDI


HI FRIENDS…..

I HOPE YOU ARE TRYING YOUR BEST TO ACHIEVE YOUR DREAMS………..

FROM FEW MONTHS I AM RECEIVING A LOT OF QUESTIONS ABOUT BOOKS TO BE FOLLOWED FOR PREPARATION…..SO I AM POSTING MY OPINION FOR YOU ALL……

BOOKS

1.NCERT IS MUST FOR BIOLOGY AND INORGANIC CHEM.

2.PHYSICS….CLASS NOTES,COACHING NOTES,UNIVERSAL SELF SCORER USSR OR A.K. AGGARWAL

3.CHEMISTRY……PHYSICAL CHEM……CLASS OR COACHING NOTES,P BAHADUR/O P TONDON

ORGANIC CHEM…….NCERT,COACHING NOTES,P BAHADUR

INORGANIC CHEM….NCERT,P BAHADUR

 

4.BIOLOGY…….NCERT,COACHING NOTES,TRUEMAN/DINESH/BIOLOGY ON YOUR FINGERTIPS AND HANDBOOK OF BIOLOGY

 

1. NCERT ARE THE MAIN CORE BOOKS FOR PREPARATION.WITHOUT LEARNING NCERT SPECIALLY IN BIOLOGY AND INORGANIC CHEMISTRYYOU CAN NOT CLEAR THE EXAMS BECAUSE ABOUT 100% QUES INAIPMT AND 80% QUESTIONS IN AIIMSARE DIRECTLY BASED UPON NCERT.

SO MUST LEARN NCERT SPECIALLY IN BIOLOGY AND INORGANIC CHEMISTRYBY HEART….EACH LINE…EACH DIG….EVERY THING….MUG UP…

 

2.CLASS NOTES PLAY A IMPORTANT ROLE IN UNDERSTANDING THE CONCEPTS SPECIALLY IN PHYSICS BECAUSE BOOKS DON’T TELL U EVERYTHING.SO IF U CAN ARRANGE COACHING NOTES OR ANY CLASS NOTES,JUST GO FOR IT.

 

3. MUST DO A LOT OF OBJECTIVE QUESTIONS AS MANY AS YOU CAN.

BOOKS ARE SPECIALLY MEANT FOR DOING A LOT OF QUESTIONS.IN AIPMT ABOUT 60% PAPER IS BASED UPON PREVIOUS YEAR QUESTIONS.

4. MUST SOLVE ATLEAST 15 YEARS PREVIOUS QUESTION PAPERS.

MUST SOLVE AND LEARN EACH QUESTION AND THEIR TYPE OF QUESTIONS BECAUSE ABOUT 50 TO 60% OF PAPER CONTAINS PREVIOUS QUESTIONS OR QUESTION BASED UPON SAME APPLICATIONS.,

5.PRACTICE A-R QUESTIONS FROM STARTING FOR AIIMS

A-R QUESTIONS IN AIIMS PLAY A VERY HUGE ROLE BECAUSE THEY NEED HIGH LEVEL OF CONCEPT APPLICATION.SO START PRACTICE THESE QUESTIONS.

IF U DON’T HAVE GOOD SOURCES OF A-R QUESTIONS,I M SUGGESTING THIS

BOOK:::::MTG PUBLICATION BOOK FOR ASSERTION REASONING…..IT HAS SOME ANSWER ERRORS BUT IT IS BEST BOOK FOR A-R ACCORDING TO ME.

 

6.DON’T WASTE TIME IN READING hard GENERAL G.K. FOR AIIMS

MANY OF YOU Are FEELING LOW ABOUT G.K. ASKED IN AIIMS.

DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME IN READING depth G.K. BECAUSE IT CONSIST ONLY 10% OF PAPER AND CUT OFF GOES ABOUT 65% TO 70%….

FOCUS ON PHY CHEM BIO WHICH CONSIST 90%

FOR G.K……ONLY SOLVE LAST YEAR PAPERS AND SEE MAJOR DISCOVERY AND EVENTS  IN SCIENCE……LEAVE THE QUESTION THOSE ANSWERS ARE NOT KNOWN BY YOU……IT PREVENT NEG MARKING.

 

BOOKS

1.NCERT IS MUST FOR BIOLOGY AND INORGANIC CHEM.

2.PHYSICS….CLASS NOTES,COACHING NOTES,UNIVERSAL SELF SCORER USSR OR A.K. AGGARWAL

3.CHEMISTRY……PHYSICAL CHEM……CLASS OR COACHING NOTES,P BAHADUR/O P TONDON

ORGANIC CHEM…….NCERT,COACHING NOTES,P BAHADUR

INORGANIC CHEM….NCERT,P BAHADUR

 

4.BIOLOGY…….NCERT,COACHING NOTES,TRUEMAN/DINESH/BIOLOGY ON YOUR FINGERTIPS AND HANDBOOK OF BIOLOGY

POINTS TO BE CONSIDERED WHILE CHOOSING A MEDICAL COLLEGE


Admission Counselling by medical students from medical colleges all across India, is an initiative on the part of PMT Gurumantra, so that you won’t be alone while making the toughest choice inAIIMS-Hospital-new-delhi-india your life. A student needs to do a lot of research on the college before choosing it and the major problem that arises here is the lack of correct information. But we, at PMT Gurumantra, are determined to solve all the problems and doubts that may come across your mind.

It is often seen that students are misguided by the lists of top medical colleges published in various magazines and websites. They claim that their survey is based on education facilities and research opportunities provided by the institution but it is usually seen that they include some of the private colleges in the list too which don’t seem to fit in.

So don’t follow them blindly; instead select your own preferences and do your own research by keeping the following factors in mind:

1. College Infrastructure – Old /New, Good / Bad
2. Internal PG (as in AIIMS,VMMC & IMS-BHU) – It is the biggest deciding factor while choosing a medical college. Always give it a priority.

3. Hospital Infrastructure – The more the diagnostic facilities available, the more do you get to learn about them.

4. Average number of patients visiting the OPD per day – more are the patients, more are the variety of cases you will come to see in your clinical postings.

5. City (Delhi = Mumbai > State Capital > Cities > Town
Prefer Delhi; Delhi Advantages – cultural fests of plenty of college, PG coaching, good exposure, near home, well connected, good food etc.

6. Home State

7. Number of PG states in state ( UG:PG ratio should not be skewed)

8. Bond for rural posting (in Maharashtra)

9. Faculty

10. Past academic record

11. Hostel facilities (you are going to spend the most unforgettable 51/2 years of your life here!!!)

12. Ragging scenario – yes it is still prevalent in many colleges in UP and Bihar; but it’s fun in rest of the colleges.

13. Fees (lowest in AIIMS, MAMC, LHMC & UCMS)

14.Recreation Facilities – sports, culture, literature – AIIMS and AFMC are the colleges where you would get ample opportunity to groom your interests and passion.

15. Attendance – yes! Not now, but once into college you would realize that you should have chosen a college where regular attendance is not a compulsion – here too AIIMS leads the list.

16.Salary – Confirm the current salary paid to the interns and PGs to the students in the college you are taking. Compare it with other colleges. It is lower in MP, Maharashtra and other states…In Delhi the salary paid to the interns is around 12-14000 and to the PGs its 50000 approx..

17. Language – Students from North may have language barrier in southern states and  Maharashtra..Similarly South Indians will not feel comfortable in Punjab , Orissa , North East..So it is better to choose your own state or a state where language is  not an issue e.g. Delhi, MP, Rajasthan, Western UP

Top Medical Colleges in India


We, at PMT Gurumantra, have prepared this list after ample research and discussion with the students of those particular colleges. We have taken following parameters to prepare the list:

1. College Infrastructure

2. Internal PG (as in AIIMS,  VMMC & IMS-BHU)

3. Hospital Infrastructure

4. Average number of patients visiting the OPD per day

5. City (Delhi = Mumbai > State Capital > Cities >Town

6. State (North-East < South / North < UP/Bihar< MP < Maharashtra < Gujarat)

7. Number of State P.G. seats (UG:PG ratio)

8. Bond for rural posting (in Maharashtra)

9. Faculty

10.Past academic record

11. Hostel facilities (you are going to spend the most unforgettable 5 1/2 years of your life here!!!)

12. Ragging scenario – yes it is still prevalent in many colleges in UP and Bihar; but it’s fun in rest of the colleges.

13. Fees (lowest in AIIMS, MAMC, LHMC & UCMS)

14. Recreation Facilities – sports, culture, literature – AIIMS and AFMC are the colleges where you would get ample opportunity to groom your interests and passion.

15. Attendance – yes! Not now, but once into college you would realize that you should have chosen a college where regular attendance is not a compulsion – here too AIIMS leads the list.

16. Salary – Confirm the current salary paid to the interns and PGs to the students in the college you are taking. Compare it with other colleges. It is lower in MP, Maharashtra and other states…In Delhi the salary paid to the interns is around 12-14000 and to the PGs its 50000 approx..

It is clear how our ranking would be different from the others magazines and newspapers because they take research and hospital facilities to be the only criteria. They fail to realize the importance of these small but significant factors. It is also important to note that the ranks which these magazines give should not be and actually I must say, are not followed while choosing the college, the reasons being:

  • AFMC is ranked 2nd by these magazines but no student getting under 1000 rank in AIPMT goes for it. In fact many students prefer taking less known medical colleges in B grade towns of MP, UP and Bihar instead of AFMC. Even some students getting selected in AFMC only prefer taking a drop than joining it.
  • VMMC is seen nowhere in the list but is the fourth college to be filled in AIPMT counselling after MAMC and simultaneously with UCMS and LHMC.
  • Manipal and many private colleges have been included in the list but no one prefers it over any government medical college.
  • They don’t take into account the Internal PG factor which is the most deciding factor while choosing a medical college.

Moral of the story is that don’t believe in such lists prepared by any magazine or news channel.They include the names of some selected colleges for the sake of earning some bucks.

It should also be noted that a single list of top medical colleges can never serve as a priority list for a single student. Hence we haveprepared a priority list which would help you to select the college of your choice according to your needs and preferences.

1. AIIMS,NEW DELHI

Everyone knows it is the first choice for every medical student.

But students from southern states can choose in between JIPMER (better) and CMC Vellore if they don’t want to remain away from home. JIPMER has Internal PG advantage on its side and is better known as AIIMS of the south.

 

2. MAMC= JIPMER

Excellent faculty, Excellent academic record, good infrastructure, inexpensive – just Rs.2500/year including hostel, delhi city as well as the Delhi PG advantage makes it the first choice in AIPMT counselling. It has been a trend always and every student follows it blindly. For PG advantage, – Southern candidates should better choose JIPMER and among the North Indians, those who care for their PG seats can choose in between VMMC and BHU in preference to MAMC.

3. AIIMS BHOPAL= AIIMS RISHIKESH= AIIMS JODHPUR= VMMC= BHU

NEW INFRASTURUCTURE,PG ADVANTAGES, BEST FACULTIES HANDPICKED FROM WHOLE INDIA,LOWEST FEES,AIIMS TAG

VMMC=BHU= INTERNAL PG ADVANTAGES,GOOD HOSPITALS

 

4. UCMS = LHMC

While University College of Medical Sciences is usually chosen by the boys, LHMC (Lady Harding Medical College) is only for the girls. No internal PG but Delhi PG advantage.

5. KGMC,LUCKNOW= SMS,JAIPUR=SETH GS=GRANT,MUMBAI

STATE CAPITALS, GOOD ACADEMICS

6. BJMC,AHEMDABAD = GMC, Chandigarh = MMC, Chennai = Medical college, Banglore

  • Good colleges; city advantage.
  • Choose on the basis of location

7. Grant Medical College / Seth GS , Mumbai

Note: Seth GS, Mumbai has very good infrastructure and is excellent in academics, hence it used to be the 3rd choice of students but because of the bond restriction, it is avoided now.

8. OTHER State capitals

9. your state college

 

* AFMC

Consider it only when you can acclimatize in the Armed Forces and can tolerate such a degree of discipline or if you belong to the army background. There is also bond restrain and you would have to give a sum of Rs.15 lakhs if you don’twant to serve in the army after completing the course. Otherwise, it is undoubtedly one of the best medical colleges in the country with excellent infrastructure, academics, recreation and sports facilities and many other benefits – the greatest onebeing a lieutenant and serving the army and that too with a handsome salary and allowances.

But strictly speaking life is not as good as it appears to be. You can easily leave it as the option and prefer any other college instead.

 

Over all list of the top Medical Colleges

1. AIIMS,new delhi

2. MAMC= JIPMER

3.AIIMS BHOPAL= AIIMS RISHIKESH= AIIMS JODHPUR= VMMC= BHU

4. UCMS = LHMC

5. KGMC,LUCKNOW= SMS,JAIPUR=SETH GS=GRANT,MUMBAI

6. BJMC,AHEMDABAD = GMC, Chandigarh = MMC, Chennai = Medical college, Banglore

7. Grant Medical College / Seth GS , Mumbai

8. OTHER STATE CAPITALS

9. YOUR STATE COLLEGE

* AFMC

Final note: Take your own decision, don’t get carried away by what others are suggesting.
