Tips to Ace Medical Entrance Exams

Stick to the syllabus

At the start of the course, students often feel that they have ample amount of time and they can read more than what the syllabus holds, for it will ensure a better security for them. The general notion being: the more you study, the more you score. This is true but given that you stick to the syllabus. Head over here for NEET syllabus and find out what you must and what you mustn’t read. Find out your strengths and weaknesses once you are well into the syllabus and keep referring to the syllabus occasionally so as to remain on the right track.

Create a study timetable

Set your daily routine and keep a fixed time for studying for your entrance exam. You must allot sufficient hours for your self-study, apart from those you devote in school/coaching classes. Self-study is a must and can’t be deleted from the algorithm. Assign a few hours for recapitulating whatever you studied in the entire day. It is important that you revise your daily studies and make necessary notes. Put an hour aside for recreational activities to recharge yourself from the monotonous schedule. The sooner you accustom your body to the schedule, the better it will be for you.

Refer to Question Banks

Make sure that you begin your preparations with sufficient study material. You must have with you an archive or question bank of collections of all the previous years’ papers. Alternatively, you could have supplementary material for each chapter. Either way, refer to these question banks and try to attempt numericals and questions from the chapter you just covered. Not only does this tell you about the standard of your preparation, it helps you realize the level of the exam you are prepping for.

Simulate exams every few months

Solve a sample paper a week by timing it yourself. This is how you build up your speed for the actual exam. Solving sample papers helps you adjust to examination conditions and also lets you evaluate your strengths and weaknesses. Your recollection speed of concepts would also improve this way. It is also important to adapt your body clock to the examination timings so that you can deliver your best in that duration. The more you are stick to time restrictions, the better equipped you are to handle your performance in the exam.

Notes and Flashcards

While preparing, write down the important concepts that you might need to come back to, no matter how difficult the topic is. Once the preparation of that topic is done, refer to these notes that you’ve prepared to strengthen your roots. Preferably, maintain a register or diary which contains all the important equations and formulas which will be your sole key to revision even right before the exam.

Healthy lifestyle

Spend the days of your preparation without stress, sufficient sleep and waking up with confidence. Eat well and don’t strain your body much. Stay positive, healthy and strong and win the race.

Nowadays, the medical field is growing like never before and there are many opportunities for everyone. The medicinal market keeps inventing new technologies and students can now be a part of many things or can even invent new theorems or practical methods.
