PrepLadder congratulates Dr. Chinmay Parale on securing Rank 96 in NEET PG. We wish him all the best for his career and future ahead.
In this exclusive interview with PrepLadder, he shares the plan that worked for him to help you succeed in NEET PG.
Hi! I am Chinmay Parale.
I secured AIR 96 in NEET PG and I am currently doing my Internship in Seth GS Medical College and KEM Hospital, Mumbai.
The Ideal approach in my opinion is to study Theory/Synopsis given before each chapter followed by practicing MCQs of that chapter and a revision of the theoretical part 2-3 days later.
Well to be quite frank, if you decide to slog really hard and are determined enough in your Internship, it is quite easily attainable.
I started preparing in a somewhat dedicated manner from III/I MBBS.
Here is the list of books which I followed for PG preparation:
This was my first attempt.
Revision is the most important factor especially for an exam like NEET which is based almost entirely on Rote memory.
A minimum of 3 readings of all subjects is required if one anticipates a decent rank.
In my opinion, last 4 months before the exam must be reserved only for revision.
Indeed, it did. PrepLadder’s Free Tests conducted at the All India level gave me a fairly accurate idea as to where I stand on the national level.
I had purchased the Premium Test Series 2 months prior to the exam and that helped me assess my performance and whether it was actually improving or not with successive revisions.
It also helped me identify my weak subjects and weak topics which proved quite useful particularly towards the end with limited time at hand.
My aim was to complete my first round of preparation in 6 months (February - July), Second round of preparation in 3 months (August - October), Third round in November and a Final reading in the last 10 days.
I stuck to this plan and it worked out quite well for me.
My daily target used to be 50 pages per day in the first reading, 100 in the second and 300-350 in the third.
I was not exactly a topper, however, managed to stay in the top 10 bracket quite consistently.
Most difficult subjects were all the first year subjects, Anatomy and Biochemistry in particular.
Forensic Medicine and Anesthesia also were quite difficult to remember.
PSM and Surgery were the easiest (and hence my favorite) subjects.
Do NOT give up. It is going to be difficult, there are going to be ups and downs (downs more than ups!) and there are going to be bouts of absolute hopelessness. Keep going. It may seem difficult to believe, but getting a good rank is easier than it seems.
Be consistent. Make your own plan, make the necessary changes periodically and stick to it as far as possible.
MCQs are as important as the theory before the exam, probably even more. Do not make the mistake of reading only the theoretical part and not solving the MCQs.
Revise all the subjects at least twice. Do NOT waste time on controversial questions.
Prefer books over Facebook and WhatsApp groups.
All the best!
