1st Round (Easy)

130 MCQs out of 200 falls in the easy category. Here is the master plan to prepare 130 easy MCQs of National MDCAT by PMC.

Here students make mistakes in a hurry. This is the easiest portion of your exam. The time required for these 130 MCQs should be max 1h _ 1h 10 min leave all other MCQs for the next round

Read MCQs in Biology almost 60 MCQs chemistry almost 40 physics almost 20 English almost 10 This constitutes the major portion of your PMC MDCAT paper and attempt all these superficial MCQs rapidly 60+ 40+20+10 =130

Here another huge mistake made by many of the students is to tick the right option but fill the wrong bubble in hurry. Tip for bubble filling we suggest you, Fill the bubbles after completing two sides of the paper. Then turn the page and attempt the next 2 pages. And fill their bubbles Here starts your exam.

2nd Round (Moderate)

20-30s MCQs ( 2_3 read)In Bio 10 -12 mcqs C chemistry 10_12 mcqs Physics 10_12 mcqs English 5_6 MCQs .All you need for these 35 MCQs is 20 min max. There are easier MCQs. You will attempt these easily just with a little bit of thinking and remembering.

Leave all the big statement difficult MCQs for the next phase. Don’t do them during this phase. You are going on gradually. Just go on with the pace. Just the thing is not to frighten, control your nerves. if you find some MCQs difficult. any portion difficult just relax and go on doing all these superficial and easier MCQs with the flow. Leave all those You find time taking, big statement MCQs, calculation MCQs for the third phase of the exam

3rd Round (Hard)

The most important round of the PMC exam starts now. Believe me, all of u good students (toppers with all that required) actually here start decision time who is able to perform under pressure. All of u will be equal but many of u will lose the game at this spot.

Determination and Focus are the keys

The first and foremost thing which will aid you to achieve your desired score is determination and focus. Students almost get three months for their MDCAT preparation. Three months mean 90 days which requires your determination and all of your focus. If students are focused, they are more likely to be successful than unfocused students.

The success of the students resides in how much they are serious about their exams and how desperately they want to get selected for top-ranked medical institutes. You can stay determined and focused by watching various motivational videos. So, in order to stay focused, keep yourself motivated. Students can also motivate themselves by telling them all the reasons due to which it is essential for them to pass this exam. Students can think about their parents, family, and their associated wishes with them.

MDCAT Syllabus

Keep MDCAT Syllabus with you, You can also download the PDF File of the Syllabus from here.

Once students are focused and motivated, they will keep all the essentials with them which will help them in MDCAT preparation. Students should know what they need to study and in which areas they need to be more focused. Students can better prepare when they are aware of the syllabus. Keep yourself updated with the latest syllabus.

How To Set your timetable and follow it

When a person is truly a passion to achieve something, the very important thing he needs to do is to spare the proper amount of time. Once students are into passing MDCAT, they need to make a proper timetable in which they can mention their subjects and can fix timing for their preparation. Note down that you should fix the proper time for sleep in order to properly focus on your studies.

Seek proper guidance

It is essential to seek proper guidance for the preparation of MDCAT. There are a lot of MDCAT preparatory institutes which help students in preparation through proper techniques and strategies.

STARS ACADEMY LHR equip students with proper guidelines and tools which help students in their test. STARS help students in covering all the MDCAT syllabus within time and according to MDCAT test requirements.

Strengthen your weak points

Identify the areas where you are weak and which need to be strengthened. The majority of the students get difficulty in Chemistry and Physics. Therefore, students should identify their weak areas and should be more focused on them, and should strengthen them. Students should not have supernatural expectations of themselves, instead, they should assess themselves thoroughly and be focused.

Moreover, students can also get help from their teachers as they better know the weak points of their students. Finally, this will help students in knowing for which subjects they need to put some extra effort.

Participate in MDCAT Practice Online tests beforehand

The best possible thing which will help students greatly in their exams is that they can attempt MDCAT-type exams beforehand. Attempting such exams beforehand will help students how they can attempt the MDCAT test in the future. it will help students in the assessment of their preparation and in identifying their weak areas.

MDCAT books

Selection of the Best MDCAT Books will play a major role in Preparation. You should must read from the STARS ACADEMY books, where you get practice of 2000+ MCQ’s according to PMC syllabus. Which is Best for preparation.

“Practice makes a man perfect,” is the best suitable saying to quote here. You cannot be successful until and unless you are not practicing your syllabus.

Your success lies in the fact that how much you have practiced the syllabus. You can repeatedly listen to the lectures and can give tests chapter and topic-wise repeatedly. Revise your syllabus as many times as you can. 

Stay Optimistic

Optimism and faith is the key in keeping yourself going. Stay faithful and seek help from Allah to reach your desired goals. Moreover, try to surround yourself with people who have a positive attitude towards you and who are there for you to motivate you. The majority of the students get panic about the test but it is essential to overcome the pressure to reach our goals.

Students can handle pressure by standing in front of the mirror and by convincing themselves that they are strong enough to pass the test. It is essential for students not to take tests on their nerves as this can bring adverse outcomes. Students should keep themselves out of all the negativity, stress, and anxiety to give their best. Students need to control their thoughts as they lead the actions of the person.
