DAMS: Congratulations on securing a  good  ranks. What is the secret of
your success in this exam?
Dr. Varun Bansal:  
First of all, Blessings of GOD, my parents, teachers and lastly consistency, dedication, hard work.
DAMS: How did your parents, family and friends contribute to your success?
Dr. Varun Bansal:  
My success was incomplete without their support.  My parents were there with me at every moment and constantly motivated me. Special Thanks to my friends Dr. Sumit and Dr. Krishna.
DAMS: Who influenced you to take up Medicine?
Dr. Varun Bansal:  
I was influenced by my mamaji who is orthopedician and mamiji who is gynaecologist.
DAMS: We appreciate the fact that preparing for an extremely competitive exam must be really challenging. During your preparation, did you ever doubt your ability to succeed in it?
Dr. Varun Bansal:  
Sometimes, because numbers of competitors are so many and seats so less.
DAMS:  Which books did you read for the theory part?
Dr. Varun Bansal:  
Standard textbooks during MBBS and Notes of coaching class during entrance preparation
DAMS : Which books did you read for MCQ revision? Which revision books were the most productive and which were least?
Dr.Varun Bansal:  
AA AIIMS since 2000, MK since 2000, AAA MCQ, Across Vol. 1, 2. Individual subject wise MCQ books are sufficient.
DAMS : How important you think was DAMS in your preparation ?
Dr. Varun Bansal:
DAMS internet test software is very much similar to the AIIMS online test pattern, so by practicing such tests, there was no difficulty during the actual exam. Also the subject wise distribution of question was appropriate so that i could know, in which subjects I am weak.
DAMS: What do you think is the better way of preparation between selective, intensive study and wide, extensive study? What did you choose as your style of studying?
Dr. Varun Bansal:  
Extensive study during the MBBS time and then selective study with more focus on the topics asked in the recent papers during the preparation.
DAMS: Indian PG entrances are highly competitive so to compete them students end up in appearing in multiple PG exams , kindly extend your views on this and also their pros and cons of appearing in multiple PG entrances .
Dr. Varun Bansal:  
All the hard work done by student for so much time is decided by the performance shown in the just 3 hours, so if something goes wrong during this time, then it’s all gone. Multiple exams are advantageous in this regard that he can perform better in the other test, if first one goes wrong.
DAMS: Which subjects did you focus on?
Dr. Varun Bansal:  
I specifically focussed on the often neglected small subjects: Anaesthesia, psychiatry, skin, biochemistry, radiology, eye more, although all subjects are equally important.
DAMS: What was your strategy for the exam day? How many questions did you attempt and why?
Dr. Varun Bansal:  
Be cool! Give your best and leave the rest on God.
I attempted 195 questions out of 200. I attempted the question even if I could rule out 2 options.
DAMS: What do you want to specialize in, why and where?
Dr. Varun Bansal:  
I would like to join General Surgery at AIIMS.
DAMS: Which teachers in DAMS influenced you most and what do you like about DAMS and would recommend to your juniors?
Dr. Varun Bansal:  
I joined the Internet tests series.
I would like to say that ‘In the present era of so hard competition, it is not the PRACTICE alone which makes you perfect, but it is the “PERFECT PRACTICE” which is now required.’

So first make a strategy and stick to it, work hard, believe in yourself, and go on till your goal is achieved.
