Preparation for MDCAT
MDCAT needs only the dedicated time for its preparation, a student must have control of his senses and a proper learning method instead of cramming.
The preparatory topics must be memorized; the best way to retain your lesson in your mind is to recount the whole topic with your friends, family members, and someone else.
Tip:- Prepare National MDCAT Book [Recommended]
To some extent, PMC is trying to make a provincial policy for the same curriculum of all the four provinces of Pakistan. A group committee of PMC will select the items of syllabus which will not clash with any other provincial overview.
MDCAT is a competition test; a student must have confidence in himself in the wing of competent students. Likewise a student who could not pass the exam doesn’t mean that he is a dumb as he could not get himself enrolled in a medical college.
MDCAT is not a matter of life and death for a student; if a student could not pass the MDCAT then there are finance Departments supporting the students in the form of loans to ensure their admission in a private medical college.
If a student could not pass the MDCAT then there are plenty of fields other than mbbs bds.
