Article: Tips for students to approach MDCAT Exam


Entrance exam is test of your performance that not only includes your knowledge of the subject but it is based on two criterias that consist of IQ (Intelligence Quotient) and EQ (Emotional Quotient).

Intelligence Quotient (IQ)

The entrance exam is based on student’s IQ, how students can combat with the tricky questions. So the students are tested upon similar knowledge that the students have entertained in Intermediate, but questions are posed in a tricky manner in order to test your conceptual clarity.

So worry not, you are prepared, just give yourself the space to deal with the problem objectively and telescopically.


Emotional Quotient (EQ)

Given the time pressure, stress and knowledge testing, performance of the individual in an entrance exam is also tested.

Make sure you keep yourself mindful of your condition and keep yourself motivated. Give yourself a pep talk, know that you did your best to make it till here and that all is achievable. Purpose of pep talk is developing a trust in oneself. Also watch a motivational video or two, it will help you boost yourself up.

And especially during the test, do not let nervousness overwhelm you.

Sleep tight

Sleep tight before exams and don’t exert yourself with stressful thoughts because sleep has drastic effects not only on health but also on your overall performance. It drains your energy and adds to your anxiety. Attention span and focus are vital aspects for concentration that gets directly affected by inadequate sleep.

Good night sleep not only boosts up overall performance, but also enhances problem-solving psychological mechanism and mental adaptability to all sorts of psychological challenges.
