How to Ace University Aptitude Tests?

Firstly, let us explain why scoring more in your aptitude test is really important. Getting good grades in college is important but not sufficient. Each university has a specific selection standard that includes tests, interviews and other activities like group discussions. When deciding your place in the merit list, your marks in the aptitude test are given more weight than your grades in college. Hence, your marks in the aptitude test of the university where you want to pursue higher education will ultimately be the deciding factor whether you will be able to get admission in the university of your dreams or not. The aptitude test is your biggest hurdle you need to pass to get into the university of your dreams.Now that it has been explained how important it is to get as much high marks in the aptitude test as possible, here are some tips & tricks that will help you in the upcoming aptitude tests.

An Early Start is a Rule of Thumb!  

A simple trick which is overlooked is to start preparing for the aptitude tests simultaneously while preparing for preliminary/mock and board exams. It is such a simple trick which can pay you great dividends. By doing this, you will have a whole year to learn and prepare for your entrance test. 

Rote Learning Will Not Help You!

Entry tests are all about how well you understand the key concepts of major topics. You can do everything right in your board exams but it will certainly not work when it comes to aptitude test. Try to read each line of the book with concentration. Try to understand the concept yourself and if it does not work, get help from YouTube and your teacher. Finally, intermediate/A-level marks do not matter for the aptitude test, concepts do. Thus, do expect questions which test your concepts.

You Cannot Get Away By Avoiding English & Mathematics!

Almost all the universities have sections of the aptitude test designated to test the student’s command over English and Mathematics. So, the earlier you start practicing the two, the better will be your chances to score well in the test. A tip here is to prepare from other resource books like SAT and GRE books. Many universities’ question papers have questions which are based on the format of these books.

The Human Brain Has Invented Calculator, Not Otherwise. Get It Straight!

Try to limit the use of calculator for small calculations or stop using the calculator completely during your preparation for the aptitude test. It is because using calculator is inefficient and requires much more time for calculations which actually does not require the use of a calculator.  Try to do basic calculations either in your mind or manually. Try to practice self-calculation which will also help you in managing your time.

Practice From Sample Papers!

We all know that practice makes a person perfect. Sample papers from different universities give a brief idea of ​​what kind of questions to expect in the test. You will find out about the time frame and complexity of MCQ. Knowing the type of questions, you will face in the actual test will be very helpful for you to come up with a strategy to solve such questions.

Consistency Is The Key!

Your main goal is to pass your aptitude test and get into the university of your dreams. Make up your mind and try to remind yourself of your purpose whenever you do not feel like studying. You’ve been working hard for 2 years and only need to last a month or so. You must not let yourself get upset and let all your hard work go in vain! Just focus on your education, avoid social media and mobile phones for a few months. Work hard and celebrate your success after getting excellent marks in the test!
