How did the Shifa test go?
Im pretty counfused about how my test went. This is my second year of application at Shifa Med School and this time around i really studied hard. But to my dismay, the physics section was quite hard, compared to Biology and Chemistry. What do you guys think? How did it go for all u who took it on the 24th?
Oh, and the invigilators were quite finicky about anyone marking the question paper. So do u think they r going to use the same questions for the test on the 31st?August 25th, 2008, 01:44 PM #2
I don't think so! They will change the questions or mayb sme questions. Anyway wat about math?? How was it?? And wat particularly was difficult in physics?? Can u plz tell, was the paper general or specific?? How many numerical were there and where did u do the rough work if not allowed to do so on the question paper????August 26th, 2008, 02:00 AM #3
Math was not that difficult. Very basic quadratic equations, some log questions. Physics was mostly A2 part, i.e. Circular motion, SHM, etc and LOADS of calculations in physics. I might b scaring people since im not good at physics myself so they might just have been difficult for me. But the general trend was tht physics was harder than the rest. Whereas Biology and Chemistry were from AS part. English was difficult too. I dont understand why they ahve to test us with IDIOMS! Yes idioms! eg. Teething troubles; To gild the pill; Red letter day etc.
A seperate sheet was given for the rough work and compared to last year the exam was to be solved with a pen so if you make a mistake, well thats it!August 26th, 2008, 07:19 PM #4
thanks man! Just one more question, did the paper followed the the syllabus prescribed at the end of the prospectus?? I mean there are sme chapters missing, like bio energetics, enzymes etc. Was there any question frm those chapters which were not mentioned??
And plz plz, tell us wat more did they ask in english apart frm idioms??August 27th, 2008, 03:32 PM #5
they had like some synonyms, opposites etc
apart from that there were a few questions on ethics
and yeah physics was tough
i did my rough work on the question paper and people do take care when marking ur answers cause u have to do that with a ballpoint pen and once uv marked it wrong its overAugust 27th, 2008, 09:23 PM #6
How did u guys prepared for the test?? Just read the text or memorized it whole?? And plz answer the syllabus question i asked. Was there anything extra stuff not mentioned in the syllabus at the end of the prospectus.M really nervous about wat might cme in the test.Only three days left!!August 27th, 2008, 09:48 PM #7
i never noticed they dont have those chapters in the list :s. Well Id prepared them anyway since im taking the PMC test as well. I took FSc tutions and plus i literaly memorised the Bio book, some of chem and phy too.
And as Coolblue said, they had synonyms and antonyms as well.
Dont worry man, it wont be that hard to get in if u score ok in the entrance exam [around 50 %] and have 800 above in FSc. Good luck [to me too ]August 27th, 2008, 11:53 PM #8
i think that to be on the safe side u shoul study the topics mentioned in the syllabus for the testAugust 28th, 2008, 10:49 AM #9

How was the test...all of you who took it on Sunday 31st Aug?September 1st, 2008, 08:02 AM #13
The test was typical, way too much! Same theory here, Chemistry and Biology were easier than physics. And the total number of students who appeared were 1381 compared to 2500+ last year. And a number of students were absent too, more than 3 in my class.September 1st, 2008, 04:21 PM #14
