Every year thousands of students who graduate from school give the medical entrance exams and only a few of them are able to come through.  It is important for one to create a well-designed strategy and then implement it on a regular basis to be able to achieve the desired results. Rather than picking up the study material a few months prior to the exams, one should begin to prepare for these exams during the final two years of school. Take a look at all the strategies and tips that are stated below if you are preparing for PMT or NEET.

1) Get Complete Knowledge of the Syllabus

Before you begin to prepare for the exams, it is important for you to know the topics that you will be asked in the entrance exams. The entrance test covers the NCERT syllabus. You can even compare your school syllabus with your entrance exam syllabus. You will notice that many of the topics asked are common. It is advantageous for the candidates as they don’t have to prepare for such topics separately. Plus, it will allow one to put more emphasis on those topics which are not covered under the NCERT syllabus.

2) Devote More Time on Difficult Topics

There are always some topics that you know by heart. On the other hand, there are some topics that you find extremely difficult . Segregate the chapters that you find are easy from the hard ones and start your preparations accordingly. Spend some extra time to the topics that you are weak at. If you do so, then preparing for PMT/NEET will become easier.

3) Create and Implement a Study Schedule

None of the preparation will bear fruitful results if you are inconsistent and have an improper schedule. Therefore, it is vital for you to form a study schedule and follow it regularly with discipline. If you make a well-constructed study schedule for yourself, then it will allow you to cover the NCERT syllabus together with the entrance exam study material. You can complete your school syllabus and concurrently continue preparing for PMT/NEET. Implementing your schedule regularly with discipline will enable you to complete the whole syllabus in an effective manner. Plus, it will give you sufficient time for revision as well.

4) Thoroughly Prepare the NCERT Syllabus

The job of a doctor is to save life of his or her patients and to be able to perform this role perfectly one needs to have a strong grasp over the fundamentals. The fundamentals of medical line begin from one’s high school life. This is the major reason why while preparing for PMT/NEET one needs to have a thorough understanding of the basics. If your basics are strong, then it will be easier for you to understand difficult topics, which you will study at a later point of time. Major section of the exam is full of the NCERT questions. So, it is important  for you to clear your basics by studying the NCERT syllabus properly.

5) Give Mock Test Papers

We all know that a student is time bound during the exam as one has to finish 180 questions in 180 minutes. That means on an average, a student has to do one question per minute. If one goes for the test just after preparing for the topics, then that wouldn’t be suffice. As you need to solve all the questions within the time limit of 180 minutes. Preparing the topics is not enough as one has to work on his or her accuracy and effectiveness. One can work on these two areas by giving mock tests.

After being done with the syllabus, it is important for the students to give as many mock tests as possible. These mock tests will help you to complete all the questions quickly. You must try to solve mock test papers within the fixed duration of 3 hours and that too with an accuracy. Then, only you will be able to outperform in the examinations.

By solving the mock question papers, you will be able to do a self evaluation . Moreover, you are able to familiarise yourself with the questions and topics that are prominently asked in the exams. Additionally, you will be able to acquaint the self with the exam before actually attempting it. Furthermore, you will learn time management and accuracy while preparing for PMT/NEET.  

6) Solve Question Papers of the Last Few Years

When we talk about the medical examinations, no new change gets introduced in the exam every year. Therefore, the exam pattern followed every year is no different. So, when you start solving the previous years’ question papers, you get a complete idea of the type of questions that are asked in the paper. Plus, you get to prepare for your exam according to the changing trends. So, it is recommended to solve more question papers. As you solve more and more papers, you gain a lot of confidence.

7) Be Confident and Don’t Panic

Students generally have a habit of panicking right before the entrance exam, which is why they underperform in the exams even after preparing well for it. There is nothing to be scared of, one just needs to keep faith in his or her abilities and go forward with it. Yes, one can get really stressed out prior to the examination but you can’t let your fear and anxiety create obstructions for you. Just be relaxed. Develop a habit of doing yoga and meditation to keep yourself physically and mentally fit during all circumstances. If you will prepare for your exam in a perturbed state, then you will not be able to produce any results.

8) Use New Technology to Learn More

There are several students who use old means of educating themselves, even after the emergence of advanced technology. They use the old way of studying by highlighting the important texts in their books. But now you are available with even more unique and amazing way to do personalized studying. Learning has become easier now as there is availability of advanced ways to study. Try to learn by downloading apps on your smartphone. Additionally, you can learn more through videos, tools, and social media.

9) Refresh Yourself

Optimum performance does not require one to get glued to the books at all times. Continuous studying for several hours can lead to fatigue. Hence, one should take a short break of 10-15 minutes to get freshed up. A worn out body and mind will not be able to give his or her absolute best. Plus, all the things that one learns in a tired state is equivalent to drawing a blank. Try taking a power nap, going for a walk, or hitting the gym to refresh yourself.

10) Don’t Guess your Answers

Many of the candidates guess the answer to the question that they don’t know in the exam. But they do not understand the repercussions of such guesswork. All entrance exams in India have negative marking. Medical exams also have negative marking. Therefore, one wrong answer can cost you a lot. So, choose your answer wisely. If you do not know the answer to a particular question, then it is better for you to not attempt it.
