Tips for the Preparation of MCAT 2017 Exams | MCAT 2017 Result
MCAT 2017 is going to held in late of August or the start of September but there are no final dates announced yet from the administration. Medical College Admission Test is one of the most important test in the life of a Medical Student because it decides whether you are going to get admission in Medical College or not OR in Public or Private Medical College. Due to this much importance of MCAT all of you have to start preparing for MCAT 2017 as early as possible. The Subject wise Tips and Tricks for the MCAT 2017 Exams are given below:
Dear students, the MCQs of physics in the paper are both easy and difficult. There are a total of 44 MCQs. Out of them, about 20 mcqs are quite easy and can be said as book lines. However, remaining 24 mcqs are not as such from the book. These mcqs are always world known and conceptual, not too difficult but quite interesting. In order not to lose 100 marks, which literally DECIDE YOUR MERIT, you have to be keen about those 24 mcqs as well.These mcqs involve diagrams and calculations etc, but are not so difficult. But you must have once gone through them before the entrance test. That’s it!!
There are a total of 58 mcqs in chemistry. According to the updated syllabus, about 52 mcqs are quite lenient(no diagrams), but remaining may contain diagrams and the most important questions in the form of diagrams come from AMINO ACIDS and MACROMOLECULES. Moreover, you should have FULL GRIP on your organic chemistry. Because 30 questions are from organic chemistry only. A good teacher can help you master the organic chemistry. If you think that first year chemistry is difficult then don’t waste all your time on learning it only. There are 18 mcqs from first year and 40 from second year. So, try to keep a balance. That’s it!!
There are 88 M.C.Qs in biology paper. Dear students, ALL THESE MCQs are SIMPLE BOOK LINES except a few (3 or 4). So, you have to prepare it necessarily from book. I don’t say that simply CRAM the book lines. You should learn all the topics of Biology like a story, yes a scientific story. Don’t cram same to same book words but try to learn everything that is written in the book. And you need not learn any key books or notes in order to GET CONCEPTS. I can say, with extreme honesty that all the concepts are easily available in our textbook. So, you must take your textbook as reference. Learn everything from it, because not even a single word in mcat is from outside the range of your book. So, plz be serious about it. That’s it….!
Now comes the embarrassing question of English (embarrassing for most of the students..). Actually the paper consists of 30 mcqs. These mcqs are very very important in deciding your merit. There are roughly 2 categories of questions:
i) Vocabulary (4 fill in the blanks and 10 synonyms)
ii) Correction (6 Spot the Error and 10 choose the correct sentence)
So, you have to focus on these 2 things and I CLAIM that VOCABULARY is MORE IMPORTANT. Not even a single question in the paper of English is without the use of Vocabulary( given by UHS in syllabus “Essential Word Power”). So, you must have firm grip on these 872 vocabulary words. These are very very difficult words and have been eliminated from the Oxford Dictionary. At least, you must know the meaning of each and every word. This will cause your avoirdupois of English be reduced.
In grammar, you should know only the basic and primal concepts of tenses and PREPOSITION. You must learn all the basics, only basics not detailed concepts of verb, adverb, adjective, etc. These questions are very easy for those who are good at English and have a good base. but the students who need improvement must CONCENTRATE on English Grammar and general rules. These rules are taught by teachers. So, prefer them or simply read books for grammar like Captain and Bright. I personally prefer Captain Key book( only its Grammar portion). Thus the key to at least 25 correct questions in English is THE GRIP ON VOCABULARY. That’s it!!!!
