How to get most out of your Entrance Test Preparation

If you work extremely hard to clear your 12th grade/A levels, you are eligible to take different Entrance Tests and you are being told by different seniors (parents teachers elder brothers/sisters etc) that Entrance Test is the final hurdle left to meet your career; Pass it and the world is your playground.


With so close to the test that you can count the remaining days on fingertips, it’s time that you change your studying strategies a little. As a friend of mine puts it

“It’s time to do smart work not hard”

I’d modify it a little “It’s time to combine smart work with hard”. I’m here to give you a few Important Tips that would help you take the edge in entrance tests.

Two years you’ve been clearing concepts of different subjects. You have enough knowledge by now that it can help you Pass the Entrance Test with Good marks. It is however required that you compile that knowledge and be systematic with it.”Go through your TEXT BOOKS, for the last time. No need of cramming up all the words in them, just take the main idea of Every Topic of Each chapter. For instance if you are on the “Conservation of Momentum” topic; all you need to know is that if anything from outside doesn’t interfere, momentum would be the same always. The same idea applies to all of your physics and chemistry.

For the numericals, learn every formula in your TEXT BOOK. Don’t waste your time in searching relations from books written by Einstein, just stick to your text books. Since Entrance test is all objective, be wise enough to know, what numericals can be asked to solve. This is to say that no one is going to ask you to solve a three page integral (but if it can be solved in two lines do note that method). Same goes for Mathematics, learn all the formulas by heart (especially for A level students, you won’t be given any formula sheets) and keep in mind the basic procedure to solve every type of question in the TEXT BOOK.

Mathematics however requires some practice anyway.

As they say “Practice makes a man Perfect”, to solve MCQs effectively and efficiently, you are required to have enough practice of them. You might have all the concepts but unless you don’t solve a few thousand MCQs before the test, confusions will attack you from nowhere. Practicing MCQs will help you develop your own techniques of solving them. You will discover different shortcuts and you would not have to waste time in developing methods on the test day.

English being a language, not a subject, cannot be learned in a month, but no need to panic you are still not doomed. Vocabulary is the most important thing with the entrance test. Get the word list from SAT 1 Guide book by Barrons and memories as many words as you can (with meanings). A good method to do this is that you write around 30 words daily on a piece of paper and keep it with you all the time. Keep going through the words throughout the day. In the bathroom, while waiting for a game to load etcetera, whenever you get a spare minute, take out that piece of paper. By night you should be able to recall meanings of at least 25 new words. DONOT take English lightly it can easily give you the leading edge because normally students ignore it and suffer later. Comprehension and Analogies are the two components of English portion of the Entrance test. (For F.Sc students, this will not be your regular comprehension in which the author’s name is asked in the question, and is also given in the text) so do practice.

Guessing is a very bitter truth in solving MCQs. I would not say abandon it totally but be systematic in it as well. For most of the questions if you think a little two out of four options can easily be ruled out hence leaving you with a very good chance of guessing the right answer.

At the end I’d say a much interesting world awaits you.

      We want to keep this project alive to benefit thousands of students who may not afford the academies fees. If you can afford the internet connect we are sure that you can afford Rs 2499 for whole one year subscription.

      Finally, we have no way to actually verify the financial status of our users. Due to these constraints we humbly decline your request and would suggest that you buy our full membership in the spirit of keeping this project alive and running.
