Interview with our topper Dr. Mehta Pankti K
Dr. Mehta Pankti K did her MBBS from SGSMC, Mumbai and joined DAMS
She secured Rank 41 IN AIPGMEE 2015 Exam
DAMS: Congratulations on securing a  good  ranks. What is the secret of your success in this exam?
Dr. Pankti:
There’s no ‘secret’ as such! One needs to work really hard for this one year, no shortcuts!
If I have to still name a secret it would be DAMS class notes:)
DAMS: How did your parents, family and friends contribute to your success?
Dr. Pankti:
Words would be less for this one! I owe it to my family, my teachers, my friends and seniors!
DAMS: Who influenced you to take up Medicine?
Dr. Pankti:
To be frank I just went with the flow, no emotional incident or anything like that!
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. Pankti:
Not a day would’ve passed without me thinking, can I? Will I?
DAMS:  Which books did you read for the theory part?
Dr. Pankti:
The usual texts, Robbins for pathology, Harrison for medicine, bailey and love and shwartz for surgery.
DAMS : Which books did you read for MCQ revision? Which revision books were the most productive and which were least?
Dr. Pankti:
Across (less productive), Poonam agarwal Ma’ms book for biochem (must do), short subjects (pathology is less productive, microbiology should do, short subjects- psych dermat- ortho books are really good), Sumer sir’s book for radiology (must do), Ruchi Ma’ms book for ophthalmology (must do), AA for Medicine and surgery (productive!).

DAMS: How important you think was DAMS in your preparation?
Dr. Pankti:
DAMS class notes are a gem, from the printed notes Physiology, Pharmacology, Anaesthesia are a must!  The DAMS Exclusive club and DAMS cloud, both very convenient and innovative ways to learn, very easy to revise questions, updates, and the faculty is very approachable!
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. Pankti:
Intensive and I chose the same...
There’s no time for extensive!
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. Pankti:
Multiple exams mean multiple chances! But the whole revision cycle before every exam kind of wears you out..
DAMS: Which subjects did you focus on?
Dr. Pankti:
Physiology, Biochemistry, Pathology, Pharmacology, Medicine, Surgery, short subjects.
DAMS: What was your strategy for the exam day? How many questions did you attempt and why?
Dr. Pankti:
Sleep well, pray, read every word of the question, no silly mistakes, I attempted all questions because as it is there’s no negative marking..
DAMS: What do you want to specialize in, why and where?
Dr. Pankti:
Internal Medicine, KEM hosp or MAMC I’m yet to decide that!
DAMS: Which teachers in DAMS influenced you most and what do you like about DAMS and would recommend to your juniors?
Dr. Pankti:
Sumer sir, Physio mam, Surgery sir, Patho mam, Medicine all faculties, Anatomy sir, Opthal sir, OBG mam, Paeds sir and the Psych faculty!

Definitely yes, i would recommend DAMS to my juniors, infact I already have:)
