Important Topics of Biology for AIPMT 2016
  • All topics are important and should be prepared thoroughly though there have been more questions from Human Physiology, Plant Physiology, Cell Biology, Ecology, Biomolecules, Biotechnology as per the questions asked in past years exams. After completing any topic, the objective questions should be solved and one must go through the questions asked in previous year exams from the same topic as it will give insight to the depth of the topic to be covered
  • Animalia and Plantae topic needs to be prepared more carefully as otherwise it can be too exhaustive as given in many books. The main emphasis must be on the characters of Phylum in Non-Chordates and up to class level in Chordates. All examples given in the NCERT along with the common name (wherever given) should also be learnt
Important Topics of Chemistry for AIPMT 2016
  • Physical Chemistry is about clearing concepts and implementing these concepts and procedures by solving maximum MCQs. Inorganic chemistry is more about facts and little about concepts. Students take the advantage of cramming ability in this section. Some topics like Coordination chemistry and P Block chemistry are important, therefore medical aspirants regular solve questions from these topics.
  • Organic chemistry is very demanding where you must have clarity about the concepts. First of all start with NCERT but to prepare a bit extra consult other relevant books also. When your concepts are clear, start doing MCQs on simple concepts and then try for tougher questions, since topics are interlinked they may create a fuss, but do not lose your heart keep on going with strong determination.
