PrepLadder congratulates Dr. Antony Raj James on securing Rank 54 in JIPMER May 2018. We wish him all the best in his career and future ahead.
To find out how he achieved this incredible feat, we spoke to the man himself and tried to understand what it takes to attain such a rank.
Hello, I am Dr. Antony Raj James, I did my MBBS from Villupuram Medical College. I scored Rank 54 in JIPMER May 2018.
The correct approach is, first start with a lot of theory and little MCQs and as the exam approaches go for more of MCQs and less of theory
The ideal time to start the preparation is after the internship. But it is better to get your concepts strong before internship.

Yes, my All India Rank Was around 5000.
So I changed my preparation quite a bit started revising, again and again, it doesn't matter how hard we get hit, it matters that we get hit and keep moving forward and this May my PGI general Rank was 339.
JIPMER needs just one extra preparation reading Arun babu sirs book it is the key to success in JIPMER.
Yes the mock tests towards the end were very good I got a rank of 302 in AIIMS Mock 121 In PGI Mock and 300 in JIPMER Mock which really boosted my confidence and many questions were also repeated in the May 2018 entrance exam. Taking Mock exam is one of the most important steps in ones preparation.
Not exactly a time table I started giving everyday morning 4 hours for subjects studied the week before it really boosted my confidence and never stop revising
Most difficult was PSM and easy one was short subjects
Giving too much importance to tough MCQs like new drugs and genes is a mistake that is going to be only 50 questions the rest 200 is the area we need to concentration on where there will be 40 plus repeats which we should never go wrong and short subjects are very important
I wanted to attend a maximum number of questions. I attended 238 questions. Attending maximum question is one of the keys to success in JIPMER exam
Never get depressed for getting a bad rank in one exam, one exam is not related to the other. Keep pushing hard and suddenly success will be knocking on your doorstep.
We thank Dr. Antony Raj James for sharing his success story.
Best Wishes for PG entrance
With Love, Team PrepLadder
