Bhavik also enrolled in full-time coaching and two test preparation series. “The calculations in AIIMS exam are never straight forward. No one formulae fit in. Thus it is time-consuming and one needs to have a hold of both the concept as well as speed to attain accuracy in the exam.

I used to take books for the entrance exam to my school as well and utilizes whatever time I got. ”
