How to Prepare for UHS MCAT

With increasing hype of getting admission in medical school and with rising merit for past few years, it's important to cope with these challenges.
            Let's have a brief look at the pattern of the test. The test shall consist of one paper containing 220 multiple choice questions-four options with single best answer- divided into four sections, namely:
1) Biology (88 MCQs)
2) Chemistry (58 MCQs)
3) Physics (44 MCQs)
4) English (General for language proficiency) (30 MCQs)
  • The duration of test shall be 150 minutes (2.5 hours) and total marks are 1100.
  • There shall be Negative Marking in the test. For each correct answer, 5 marks will be awarded to the candidate and for each incorrect answer, 1 mark will be deducted from the total score. No mark will be deducted on not attempting a question.      
  • First of all, I recommend, to attempt Biology section because it constitutes the major portion of your test and most of the questions in biology are simple and easy. Regarding preparation, thoroughly read the book. Don't skip any topic. Shortlist important points in a separate notebook so that you can revise at the end. 
  • Secondly, attempt English section. For English, you have to focus on vocabulary and the basic grammar. Do maximum practice for this. Spend at least 30 minutes daily for this practice.
  • Thirdly, attempt Chemistry section. For this subject, at least read the book thoroughly for once. Then you can just focus on the topics mentioned in the syllabus
  • In the end, attempt Physics portion as it takes time and a little bit tricky for medicos. Regarding preparation, focus on numerical.
           The most important point is, What should you do if you are not sure about the right answer. There are 2 possibilities, either you have not the slightest idea of the question or you are confused between 2 choices. In the former case, leave the question unattempted and in the latter case, calm down yourself for few seconds then do a little brainstorming, you will surely sort out the right answer.
There are few things you have to keep in mind before starting preparation for entrance test:
Set a goal:
"Write your goal on a sticky note and paste it on your cupboard and read it every day"
Always trust your gut feelings. Make sure you are doing what you really want to do. Medicine needs a lot of patience, courage and determination.After you have decided then don't ever give up, no matter what the circumstances are.
