As I was doing some extra research for my medical entrance exam preparation, I accidentally discovered that there is much scope for me, outside of textbooks. People say that it is very important to sit and prepare for more than sixteen hours a day. This kind of medical entrance exam preparation may be useful for only a few students. Most of the students may not be able to sit for these many long hours. Furthermore, it takes out all the energy and interest to study from our brains. So we are going to see three secrets for the preparation of Medical Entrance Exams, which might change you view towards studies.
Medical Entrance Exam Preparation Secret #1: Can I pass the exam?
It seems that lot of students question themselves, whether they can clear the entrance test or not, but I think it is obvious. It is because we see that the ratio of engineering graduates to Medical Graduates is high. This ratio itself explains the fear in students who chose engineering stream instead of medical stream as soon as they move out of school.
For me this ratio clearly gives a motivation for medical entrance test preparation.
The best part is this ratio, yes; it is a secret for entrance exam preparation. However, how it is a secret? As we know that the lesser the competition for anything in this universe, the more the chances of getting it. If we observe this fact clearly, we can understand that it is easy to score and get admission in Medical Colleges, than engineering colleges.
Use this fact in a unique way, and start preparing right now. It is very possible to get a medical college admission as long as you will think outside the box just a bit.
Medical Entrance Test Secret # 2: I study all the subjects at the same time!
Do not put your eggs in one basket. Yes, that is true in many aspects of our life. I was preparing for medical entrance exams, without systematic way. In addition, many students try to remember the entire topic, subjects at a time. Regardless of the complexity of the subject matter.
Samuel, a successful student who got admission in one of the top medical colleges, says he failed three times before he actually got this opportunity. In addition, he actually shared the secret for his success.
However, Guess what?
He says, we should study in an uphill manner. Which means one should study and understand the fundamental concepts initially in any subject. As we grasp the basic concepts, it will be easy to understand advanced topics in any subject.
We can see the difference in Sam’s fourth attempt, why? Because, he understood the actual concepts of the exam.
Medical Entrance Exam Secret # 3: “I read a lot, but forget everything”
Passing entrance exam is no just blindly reading. You will automatically memorize, if you start understanding the topics, which you are reading. Simply turning the pages around will not put the facts into your brain. Therefore, it should not be your actual way of preparation.
In this situation, group discussions play a major role to help students understand complex topics. Apart from group discussions, educational videos are available and easily accessible on the internet. It is important to relate the topics and subjects with each other. Because the answer to one question definitely lies somewhere in another topic.
Most of the questions in entrance test, have inter relationship with other questions. To answer these types of questions we need to be clear with all the topics in a subject.
Now we have the 3 secrets of medical entrance exams exposed, it depends how you actually apply them to you preparation.
