Hello, please tell us something about yourself.

Dr. Kaushik: My name is Dr. Abhishek Kaushik, I am an Intern at Sardar Patel Medical College, Bikaner. I have secured AIR 3 in UPSC CMS Exam 2017.

 

What do you think is the correct approach to study for UPSC CMS? Only Medical content or Medical content + General ability? 

Dr. Kaushik: One must focus more on medical content rather than general ability because now, the GK questions have been removed, so just focus on medical part.

 

When should the preparation ideally be started? 

Dr. Kaushik: Studying final year of MBBS properly and thereafter, during internship (i.e. 6 months) revising the final year along with PSM is sufficient.

 

Please list the books you studied for each subject. 

Dr. Kaushik: Books I referred for preparation were:

  • Medicine : Arvind Arora
  • Surgery : Pritesh Singh
  • OBG : Sakshi Arora
  • For PSM, Pediatrics short subjects Arvind Arora of respective topics.

 

Have you attempted UPSC CMS previously? If yes, what did you do different this year that lead to your success 

Dr. Kaushik: This was my first attempt for UPSC CMS.

 

Did PrepLadder play a part in your success? If yes, how? 

Dr. Kaushik: Yes, PrepLadder played a part in my success; I used to read the previous year successful candidate’s interview, which helped me a lot, to nail the interview.

 

How big is the role of practice and revision while preparing for UPSC CMS and how much time should be dedicated for it? 

Dr. Kaushik: Practice and revision holds the key to success while preparing for the entrance, although, it must simultaneously go along with the preparation but the last one month should exclusively be reserved only for revision.  

 

Did you use a time table/study plan to keep your preparation on track? 

Dr. Kaushik: Yes, following a timetable is required while preparing for any entrance exam. Time table should be planned in such a way that the final year subjects are completed in 2 months and PSM in 10 days and rest of the days must be spent practicing and revising.

 

Were you a topper or a mediocre student during MBBS? 

Dr. Kaushik: I was second in my batch. In the final year of MBBS, I scored 70%.

 

List the most difficult and easiest subjects for you. 

Dr. Kaushik: For me, the most difficult subject was surgery and the easiest one was medicine.

 

One mistake that you believe everyone must avoid while preparing for UPSC CMS. 

Dr. Kaushik: While preparing for UPSC CMS, avoid referring extra material; just revise and practice the material what you have already studied.

 

Some last tips for our readers preparing for UPSC CMS? 

Dr. Kaushik: Chase your dreams; dreams do come true.
