The most frequently asked question these days by NMDCAT aspirants is “AKHRI MHINA TYAARI KESAY KI JAYE?”.
Let’s find out the answer.
The last month's preparation for MDCAT is the grand finale phase which will decide
> who will find the way to their DREAM medical college,
> who is going to reappear next year?
There are many success stories of students who struggled very rarely the whole year but they gird up their loins in the last month of preparation and that month made it possible for them to fulfill the aim.
It's always YOU VS YOU. So, you will face hurdles in doing your preparation from inside your heart, not from anybody else.
> Make a decision and time-bound your goals and then cling to them.
> Stay determined and always think that if you could not make it in this last month with optimum effort, you will not be able to achieve the goal you are having from your college days.
No schedule is perfect unless you follow it in the true spirit, for the rest of the days make a fixed schedule for you.
Your schedule must,
a) Match the routine of your MDCAT Day,
Your exam is on the 13th of Nov 2022 at 8:00 AM... You need to train your brain to be at its best at this time of the day. Your daily routine must train your mind, body, and spirit to work optimally on exam day.
b) Do NOT consider yourself a "Memory Card".
You are not a storage device, optimize your daily tasks and take regular study breaks, you don't need to study for 8 or 16 hours a day, instead, make daily targets and manage your time according to these targets.
The last 30 days aren't for chapter-wise preparation, working on a chapter-wise plan will land you in chaos, it is the time for you to see your syllabus with a holistic view.
Following are the things you should do to manage your syllabus during the last 30 days.
All you need is to follow the following CRASH TEST SESSION in the last golden month.

Success in MDCAT is all about retaining your strengths and working on your weaknesses. Identify your weaknesses in all 4 subjects of MDCAT as per the provided syllabus.
Work on all your weaknesses until each and every one of them is converted to your strength.
> During preparation, students keep on avoiding certain topics, (normally which they find difficult) for the last time, this is going to cost you a lot.
> Start each subject, even chapters with a diagnostic test, so you can identify what are the issues with that chapter. Work on your weak areas as first priority and move forward with retaining your strengths.
> Make a list of your weak topics and keep testing them from time to time, mark the scores you achieve in front of this list, observe your performance and make efforts accordingly. this practice will keep on polishing your confidence and will make it easy for you to face questions from that topic in your final exam.

No one is superhuman, you can't study for 18 hours straight and produce the best results, this will in turn causes stress, overthinking, demotivation, and a lot of other problems which directly affect your grades.
Make a routine of 30 minutes of exercise on daily basis before starting your studies, this will improve the blood flow to the brain, this, in turn, fires up your neurons and promote cell growth, particularly in the hippocampus.
So with an exercise of only 30 minutes, you can improve your concentration and overall productivity.
Take proper meals during this last month of your prep, you can't afford to get ill right before your exams. To avoid any such conditions during or right before your exam you need to focus on your diet as well. Avoid taking too much fast food as taking loads of fast food will directly affect your studies (Research have found that people who take healthy and regular diet perform way better than those who take too much fast food in simple memory tests)
During these last days, you need to do everything that will make your only asset (your brain) happy and active during the time of the exam. Do not isolate yourself from the outer world, once you are done with your schedule find some time to talk to people you love, to even increase your productivity talk to your friends about the topics you've covered, summarize the topic in that chit chat, it will give you a subconscious revision of the topics you've covered.
Proper sleep during optimum hours is crucial for your activity, avoid all-night study, especially during the last days, you MUST train yourself to perform at your best between 8 Am to 12 Pm on the 13th of Nov 2022.
You can't perform at your best if your biological cycle is trained to make you mentally active in the evening or at night, your exam will be in the morning you must be 100% active both physically and mentally during the time of the exam.
6 hours of sleep is optimum for you to perform well, suggested sleep time for the best performance is 10 Pm onwards. Train yourself accordingly.
