Hi everyone, this time of the year is critical for the students done with higher secondary studies and planning to get enrolled in College/University. There are many established centers for the preparation of entry tests, but nearpeer not only provides the best preparation material but also gives its clients the ease of access to get prepared the best for the respective test.
This particular blog is for letting you guys know the perfect strategies to improve your MDCAT score.
1. ENGLISH: Give more time to English
- it counts. English is not a conceptual subject. Grammar and vocabulary are not something that needs a concept as such. You should start preparing English from the day one, on your own, so that you won't need to invest much time in English during the last few days before the test. English vocabulary should be studied on regular basis. Do at least 30 words on a regular basis and polish your grammar from the day one.
Always wondered how to ace vocabulary part in MDCAT?
2. MAKE YOUR OWN NOTES:
Try to note down the complete MDCAT lectures or at least important points which the teacher tells during class. Also, note down any MCQs that you feel difficult on your notes/register. It will take just a few minutes but you will feel a remarkable improvement in your learning. It is difficult to follow it in the beginning but you will soon get used to it.
3. READ THE SIDE-INFORMATION IN YOUR TEXTBOOKS TOO:
A lot of the times, you might think a question is out of syllabus but it was actually given from a side information written along a diagram or something in your textbooks. So pay specific attention to those too. For example, the questions about structures of glucose and fructose, types of glycosidic linkages are very easy to solve if you have learned the diagrams.
4. PAST PAPERS:
Past papers are very, very helpful. Try getting the past papers and their keys. Solve them, test yourself and you’re good to go.
Here you will find some of the practices quizzes that you must take to see where do you stand.
5. STICK TO UHS SYLLABUS:
The syllabus specified by UHS should be your number one priority. At least 210 out of 220 MCQs are from UHS syllabus without any doubt. The other 10 are NOT as such out of syllabus but might be from those topics of the book which are related to UHS syllabus. So if you are extra careful, do a few extra topics from the textbook that you think, are related to the UHS syllabus.
6. MAKE GOOD USE OF INTERNET:
We all are guilty of spending a lot of time on the internet. But, if it's for better use, its not a bad deal. Whenever you get bored with your textbook, take a break and instead of spending a whole hour doing nothing on Facebook, watch some interesting videos on youtube related to the topics in your syllabus. It's really helpful!
7. LAST MONTH GRIND:
This is a very crucial time because a lot of students tend to give up at the very end. This is the most stressful and defining time, every student aiming for MDCAT will ever experience. Not only do you need to not let yourself give up, but also work as hard as you can. All high achievers study at least 15 hours a day in the last month. So if you want to have an edge over other students, make the most of last month before the test.
8. DELETE ALL THE UNNECESSARY APPS FROM YOUR PHONE:
We all have a lot of apps installed on our phones that we can surely do without, but we still have them and knowingly/unknowingly, we are spending a lot of time on these apps. Snapchat, Instagram, ask.fm, Kik, Twitter, you can do without them for a few months. You can always reinstall them, use them again but you won't get this time again so get your priorities straight.
9. TEST DAY CONFIDENCE:
You should enter the exam hall with complete confidence. Forget about any chapter that you could not go through. Don't think about how much your friends have studied. Forget about your FSc or matric scores. The only thing you need to have on your mind is the paper and the MCQs. The correct answer is right there in front of you. You just have to figure out which one it is. So be confident and relaxed on that day.
