Regarding Tips for MCAT, here they are:
Tips for MCAT 2015:
1. Download MCAT 2015 Syllabus from UHS website for a list of topics you have to do. English words are now reduced in number to 695. And there are some minor changes made in Biology syllabus.
2. Remember that more than 85% of the questions are asked from your F.Sc textbooks. Therefore, your primary goal should be to go through your textbooks. Topics you have to prepare are given in the syllabus.
3. After going through your textbooks, you need to practice MCQs as much as you can. This will help you test your knowledge about your books. This will also give you a chance to go through those topics or parts of the book again, that you have not prepared well. Moreover, by practicing MCQs again and again, you will be able to know how sometimes one thing can be asked in several different ways in MCAT.
4. For practice of MCQs, you can use some MCQ book. I used MCQ book of Doggars. However, I have heard that ILMI MCQ Book is also good (although I have not seen it myself). So, you can go with any book you like. It's not that much important which book you choose. Don't spend too much time on the questions that are out of your F.Sc books or syllabus because majority of the MCQs are asked from your textbooks.
5. You can also join some academy for the preparation of MCAT. Joining academy will help you to practice more and more MCQs. You will take tests there. In this way, you will be able to check your knowledge. You will also learn time management in the long tests. However, now time management is not that much of an issue. This is because of reduction in the number of Physics and Chemistry MCQs as compared to Biology MCQs. Previously, Physics MCQs used to eat up much of your time. Now, if you are well prepared, you have ample time to do the test.
I went to KIPS Academy, Chauburji Branch, Lahore. There are many other academies of good repute too, like Star academy, GIST, etc. Which academy you join is not that much important as many people think. To score well in MCAT, you need to work hard. That is the main thing.
6. In academies, you might be taught many things out of the book. Don't be scared to see that you are not able to attempt those questions, etc. As I mentioned earlier, your primary goal should be to cover the given topics from your F.Sc textbooks. After that, you can focus on out of the book questions. So, most of your time should be spent learning things from the books rather than out of the books.
7. At the end of this post, I have given a link where I have uploaded Past Papers of MCAT.
8. If you are well prepared, you will know answers to most of the questions. Mark them in the first round of your paper. There will be some MCQs for which you will be in doubt about the options, like either A or B is correct. Or like, either A, B or D is correct, etc. Attempt such MCQs in the first round too.
Then there will some questions for which you would have no guess at all. You won't have any idea which of the four options is correct. These question will be only a few in number if you are well prepared. And I hope you will be well prepared IN'SHA'ALLAH. You can mark a circle around such MCQs on the Question Sheet, so that you can easily find them in your second round. Come back to those questions in your second round through your paper.
9. Note that, in second round through your paper, you would have time to go through, I think, about 20-30 MCQs only. After that, the time will be over. It means, for most of the MCQs, you have to give the answer in the first round. So, these MCQs are not like Board MCQs, that you can read multiple times and you can have several rounds through your paper.
10. There is a question: "What should be done with the MCQs for which we have got no idea? Should we attempt them by making a random choice out of the four options? Or should we leave them blank as negative marking is there to take back our hardly earned marks?"
I personally advise not to leave any MCQ blank. First thing is that, if you are well prepared, such MCQs will be few for you in number. Second thing is that, you get +5 for a correct answer while get only -1 for an incorrect answer. You don't get -5 for an incorrect answer. Let me explain you why you should not leave MCQs blank.
Suppose you have 20 such MCQs for which you don't know the correct answers and you answer all these 20 MCQs just by randomly selecting any one of the four options. Now, according to theory of probability, 25% of your MCQs will be correct and 75% will be wrong. This is because for each answer you give, there is 25% chance that you will choose the correct answer. So, 25% means, 5 out of 20 MCQs will be correct. You will get +25 for correct answers. But you will also get -15 for wrong answers. So, as a whole you will get, +25 -15 = +10. So, you will be at a gain.
Obviously this method is going to help you only if you are well prepared and require such flukes in only a few MCQs. Otherwise, attempting all the paper by this method is not going to work.
