It is a no brainer that cracking a Medical entrance exam is one of the toughest exams to crack in the country. These exams require candidates to study long hours for dedicated concentration and methodical preparation for thoroughly grasping both the theory as well as practical aspects of the involved subjects.
Tips for preparation for medical entrance exam
Remain Calm and composed: Most of the candidates begin to feel pressurised as the entrance exam date approaches nearby. It should be avoided and candidate should practise relaxing exercises. A nervous candidate cannot concentrate well for the exam and get distracted from his/her studies.
Solve previous years Question Papers: Candidate should constantly practise mock tests and also solve the previous year’s question papers as it helps in identifying the areas of strength and weaknesses. It helps the candidates in knowing the pattern of the exam and then prepare accordingly. Candidate can build their speed and divide his/her time in solving various sections of the exams.
Avoid studying new topics in the end: Candidate should avoid studying any new topics at the last minute. It is better for the candidates to consolidate and supplement the already read topics.
Begin revision at least one month before the exam: Candidate should begin revising the topics at least one month before the D-day. One should focus on revising topics that are easy and slowly move towards the difficult ones. One should ensure to keep the basic concepts of the topics clear.
Stress on all three subjects: Candidates should not take any of the subjects lightly and put efforts in all the three subjects including Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. Although Biology is the main subject in the pre-medical test, the chemistry also helps in scoring more marks.
As far the physics is concerned, it can really creates the difference by either making or breaking the performance. It is because of the numerous numericals that are quite difficult to solve. Most of the candidates who devote much time to elaborative syllabus of biology, fail to practise calculations and learn formulae in physics. Therefore it is important to manage your time properly and intelligently.
Mark the answers as soon as you solve it: Some candidates tend to mark all the answers in the question booklet itself and in the end fill these answers in the OMR sheet. However, it should be avoided and one should not wait till the last minute for blackening the Optical Marking Recognition (OMR) sheet. Because one may run out of the time in the end for marking the answers.
Fill the answer carefully in the OMR sheet: One should exercise full caution while marking answers in the OMR sheet. In case one has left a question no 9 then next answer should be marked in space for question No 10 and not question No 9.
Make a plan for attempting the questions: One should attempt theoretical questions first followed by numerical-based questions because the numericals take lots of time and need more accuracy.
