    you dont have to do any of the derivations just learn the derived formulas, more over the constants all of them in phy and chem have to be learned all angles for cos and sin ant tan to be learned like for0 30 45 60 and 90 u must know, u cant decide whats imp just do all those things, and it would be really comprehensive type tsst thus total concept is required besides learning specfically to say rata system#yes

    missakhwand, here is a list of topics covered on the entry test for Shifa..
    although im not applying to Shifa, im using this as a guide..
    im thinking that other entry tests will most likely cover these topics as well..
    hopefully this will be helpful to u...#happy


    **the list is on the last page of the prospectus...**

    History is not important, the name of the scientist and his discovery is important.

    yeah our teachers said not to worry about the dates.. we need to know the scientist and what he did.. bcuz there r usually 3 - 4 questions regarding scientists..

    they teach 2 chapters out of the FSC book then we hav a 60 question multiple choice test on it for practice..

    there r only MCQs a bit similar to those n the buk but a bit confusing. Cuz they might ask the question in a different way or even other way round. readind the question correctly is the primary factor, then if u have prepared the text properly, the answer will cme to u itself.

    People who have "topped" and cleared their FSc exams with flying colors have messed up pretty good on the entrance exams, hence the controversy to get rid of them since it cannot be a good indicator of person's real potential and capabilities. Anyways, my point is, if you study adequately, the entrance exam won't be that big of a deal.
    An idle brain is like a disuse atrophied muscle that is left fertile for sinister elements to flourish; however, the good news is that it is reversible by virtue of rigorous exercise

    latest news abt the cancellation of the entrance test is that the summary/whatever it is for the test to be cancelled has been prepared and sent to shabaz sharif to get signed
    its rumored that this is the reason why the test has been postponed
    and yeah the entrance test sucks ...........
    its like what there is in the f.s.c. books is right and u should answer accordingly in the test even if the whole worl considers it to be wrong!
