What you should know about admissions in Medical Colleges (MDCAT)

Being a doctor and assisting other people in an incredibly significant way is a dream of Pakistan’s many passionate students. But it is an aim in life that cannot be achieved without too much hard work and dedication.  It is important that one should keep in mind that hard work is not the only thing which is important, one should be smart enough to choose the better and most effective option for test preparation. As it is the most fundamental part of the admission process. This blog contains relevant information regarding admissions in Medicine in Pakistan:

National University of Medical Sciences (NUMS):
NUMS entrance tests take place every year in the month of September and the applications start in the last week of August. Students can get admissions at NUMS once they clear the entrance test which comprises four major sections Physics, English, Biology and Chemistry, all based on multiple choice questions. One can also get admission to affiliated institutes such as CMH Lahore, Army Medical College and Karachi Institute of Medical Sciences.

Medical College Admission Test (MDCAT):
This test takes place every year in the month of August and is conducted by the University of Health Sciences every year in August. It takes place every year on behalf of the Punjab government. This test is mandatory for many private and public medical institution admissions. The students are tested upon their ability to answer multiple choice questions based on their knowledge related to various subjects including Biology, Chemistry, English language and Mathematics. One is eligible to get into either of the institutes including King Edward Medical College, Fatima Jinnah medical College etc.

The Army Medical College (AMC):
The entrance tests for Army Medical College usually take place in July. Students have the option to either appear for the AMC test or NUMS test to get admission. Equal or above 75 percent score in FSC allows a student to sit for this examination. Lower than this percentage the students are not allowed to sit for this test. The test comprises Verbal, Nonverbal intelligence, Physics, Biology and Chemistry.

National Aptitude test (NAT):
This test is also very important for all the young and passionate students who are looking forward to providing their services as a doctor in future. The students who clear NAT are also eligible to appear for NTS affiliated medical colleges. NAT can be attempted multiple times as it takes place almost every month.

It is right to say that students are not only tested on their ability to solve a mathematics or a physics related multiple choice question rather, their passion and dedication towards achieving their goal. It is also very important that students must choose wiser options and take smarter decisions when it comes to preparing for their entry tests. Don’t forget that time is the key. Here are a few guidelines as to how one can prepare better in less time for your MDCAT:

It is important to have a full master plan before you begin with anything that is this demanding as MBBS. It is always okay to deviate and change your path but you should always have one particular path to follow and achieve your goal. In MDCAT, this can only be done when you have proper course material, sample papers, mock tests, past papers etc. Secondly you need to make sure that you are using some great time management skills while you prepare. So, preparing for MDCAT is a mix of your in-depth understanding and time management skills.

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!
