Well, the difficulty level of the AKU Entry Test is usually high. It’s a competitive exam. The purpose of this exam is to seek the best students who are going to become future doctors. So, you should have in mind that with carelessness you cannot get high scores in this exam. In AKU Entry Test only Multiple-choice questions (MCQ’s) are asked which can be of three types

  1. Memory-Based Questions

Memory-based questions are straight-away lines from the books.

For Example:

  • Oxidation is
  1. Loss of electrons
  2. Addition of hydrogen
  3. Decrease in oxidation number
  4. All the above

Answer:

This is a question related to the definition of oxidation. Options are straight-away lines from the books. As you can see all are true about oxidation. So, option (d) is the correct answer.

  1. Analysis-Based Questions:

Analysis-based questions are concepts of the books.

For Example:

  • Which of the following statements is correct?
  1. Vectors can never be added and subtracted by simple arithmetic means.
  2. Vectors can always be added and subtracted by simple arithmetic means.
  3. Vectors can sometimes be added and subtracted by simple arithmetic means.
  4. None of the above.

Answer:

The concept here is, parallel and anti-parallel vectors can be added and subtracted by simple arithmetic means. So, statements (a) & (b) are wrong. (c) is the best answer to this question and option (d) is a distractor.

  1. Application-Based Questions:

Applications-based questions are related to real-life situations.

For Example:

  • A normal person grows 20% in height from age 10 to 8 and between 18 to 25 grows between 5% to 10%. Ali is 1.625 meters tall at age of 10; maximum, how tall he would be at the age of 25?
  1. 1.4255 m
  2. 2.0475 m
  3. 2.1450 m
  4. 3.2434 m
  5. 4.1250 m

Answer:

In this example, very normal heights of a person are discussed. Obviously from the data, increasing normally should get an answer greater than 2 meters. However, heights of 3 meters or 4 meters are illogical so can be quickly eliminated. A height less than 1.625 meters can be quickly eliminated. So, the answer is one of (b) or (c). If you check, you will see that 2.1450 is the right answer for maximum height and 2.0475 in his minimum height thus (c) is the correct answer.

10. How to Study for Scoring Higher on AKU Entry Test?

  • Focus More on Most Likely to Be Tested Topics:

AKU Entry Test is not an easy exam to pass. As you know many students apply for this exam every year and only a few are selected. To ace this exam, you have to be serious about your future.

TopGrade.pk provides you with the best strategy to ace this exam. Let us tell you that how can you score higher on AKU Entry Test.

This means that more than 80% of the AKU Entrance test will be from 35% of the total syllabus. So, these sections will be your priority because most of the exams will be from these sections.

  1. Medium Importance:

Similarly, Medium importance areas should be on 2nd priority. Similarly, 12 out of 85 questions i.e., 15% will be from 23 sections; which is 31% of the total syllabus. So, you should go for these areas after you are done with your 1st priority.

  1. Low Importance:

Low importance areas on 3rd priority as they don’t have much importance than the above two. 3 out of 85 questions i.e., 4% will be from 25 sections, which is 34% of the total syllabus. So, you can consider these as low importance areas.

13. Why Students Fail in AKU Entry Test?

Well, to start this topic let me quote a quotation of a famous investor of the US, “It’s good to learn from your mistakes. It’s better to learn from other people’s mistakes.” AKU Entry Test is not an easy exam to pass. Every year thousands of students take this exam and only a few are capable of acing this exam. As quoted above, if you know the mistakes made by other students, who failed to achieve their ambition, then you can better rectify them before you made those mistakes. Let us explain the common mistakes done by students and help you not do the same.

Common mistakes done by students are:

  • Not having own study plan and relying on teachers completely:

Most of the students don’t devise their study schedules and rely completely on teachers or institutes for their better preparation. Which is completely a wrong approach. The only person who can make sure you succeed in this exam is you and no one else. As it is well said that: “SELF REALIZATION is the best teacher, SELF LEARNING is the best teaching and SELF PRACTICING is the best motivation.”

  • Studying in chronological order rather than priority order:

This is another very wrong approach of students towards their AKU Entry Test prep. They don’t prioritize the topics which are of higher importance in exam. AKU Entry Test syllabus is not short. It is a lengthy syllabus. You have to study two years of the syllabus in few months. So, if you start preparing from one side i.e., in chronological order then there are chances that you may not be able to have a stronghold on those topics which are most or more important in the exam. As it is well said that., “There is no such thing as “I don’t have time”- you just simply need to prioritize better.”

  • Using passive study strategies:

How can you know that your study strategy is passive? Let me tell you if you are studying a topic/ subject and your interest in that certain topic or subject is not developing then your study strategy is passive. So, to study actively you need seriousness. You need to be compassionate about your goal. If you are studying and questions are not developing in your mind related to your topic then you are studying passively. You should know that knowing the question is the half answer. So, to study actively you should develop questions related to the topic and try to find the answers.

  • Not analyzing and improving your test-taking skills:

When you will take tests during AKU Entry Test prep, you will make mistakes of course. But the key point which will differ you from other students is that you learn from those mistakes. Try not to make the same mistake again. After taking the test, look for the MCQs which are wrong. This will prevent you from doing the same mistake in a real exam.

  • Not devising ways of fast revision along with your classes:

Many students keep on preparing for the exam and don’t realize that at the end of preparation they will need to revise the whole syllabus once or twice. So, if they don’t make any fast revision notes of the syllabus, they will not be able to revise the whole syllabus in one or two days.

  • Not reviewing information, you already know:

Some students consider that they know the topic or subject and they don’t need to focus much on it. This overconfidence is the reason for the failure of many students. Whatever you know or have the grip of, you still need to see that topic based on the AKU Entry Test. At least, you need to revise that.

  • Memorizing rather than understanding:

Some students are habitual of cramming. But you cannot cram the whole syllabus of the AKU Entry Test because it consists of F. Sc part 1 & 2 which is quite a lengthy syllabus to be true. Well, of course, some topics can be memorized but the majority of the topics are conceptual and needs proper understanding. Otherwise, your chances of failure would increase.

  • Failing to master certain high-yield subjects or topics owing to overconfidence:

Well, there can be some topics or even subjects which you think you can do easily based on your F. Sc scores or some other factors, etc. Let’s suppose you think you are good at physics and while AKU Entry Test prep you don’t take it seriously then your chances of failure are relatively high. No matter how good you were at that subject or topic, you still need to go through it thoroughly. Because those topics can be of high yield in AKU Entry Test.

  • Studying material that is rarely tested on the AKU Entry Test:

To ace this exam your focus should be on the most likely to be tested areas. But some students get their selves tangled in some difficult questions and try to go deep into that information even though it is not related to your test. You have to understand that every difficult question or topic is not going to be in your test. Yes, there will be difficult questions but you have to smartly analyze which questions should be your concern and which should not.

  • Trying to do it all alone:

If you think you can prepare for AKU Entry Test all alone and you don’t need any teacher or guidance for your preparation then you are on a completely wrong path. It doesn’t matter how many marks you have got in your matric, F. Sc, etc., AKU Entry Test is a whole different exam and every student needs guidance and proper teaching to pass this exam. Well, you can’t have the experience that your teachers have.

  • Not testing yourselves on the material:

If you are preparing yourself for the AKU Entry Test exam, but not taking tests then you are completely at a loss. Because it doesn’t matter how good your preparation is until you have tested yourself on the material you have prepared. As it is said that, “Your eyes don’t see, what your mind doesn’t know.” It means you cannot know the mistakes if you haven’t made them. So, you need to give as many tests as you can, before you appear in the real exam.

  • Starting to study too late:

 Some students think that passing this exam is an easy task but it’s not. So, they take it easy and start to study too late until they know. Because the syllabus is not short so need time and proper attention to go through all the content.

  • Not having a proper routine/timetable:

Your daily routine plays an important role in your success in this exam. If you have a variable routine then you cannot even think of passing this exam. The syllabus of the AKU Entry Test consists of two years of content which is not an easy task to cover in few months so you need a proper timetable to cover your syllabus and score good marks.

  • Negative thinking:

Many capable students fail because of just negative thinking. Some students think that they cannot do it. It’s a very wrong approach. Positive thinking plays a very important role in your success. You should have confidence that you can do it. Put your complete effort in it and believe in Allah Almighty that He will not let go of your efforts. Insha’Allah your efforts will bore fruit.

14. What Instructions to Follow on The Day of Exam?
Instructions for combating test anxiety:
  • Set your test kit the night before the exam. It should carry all the materials which are supposed to take your exam room e.g., Admit card, wristwatch, pen/ ballpoint/ pointer, chocolates, etc.
  • Get adequate sleep (At least 5-6 hours) before the night of the exam.
  • Put on comfortable clothes after a bath on the morning of the exam.
  • Take appropriate breakfast and a cup of tea/coffee before leaving your home on the day of the exam.
  • Arrive at the test room early and be seated.
  • Stay away from others right before the test.
  • Don’t expect to know everything on the day of the exam.
  • Stay relaxed and confident during the exam.
Instructions for better time management:

Remember! Time management is an important skill for exam success. Manage your time wisely.

  • Plan your time and pace yourself accordingly.
  • Attempt easier subject first, then tackle the harder ones e.g., First of all, attempt Biology. After biology attempt Chemistry, then Physics and, then English.
  • Answer easy questions first and then tackle the hard ones. You can use the Cycle strategy i.e.

1st Cycle:

Attempt easy questions, skip difficult questions (without wasting any time on those questions).

2nd Cycle:

Attempt difficult questions.

3rd Cycle:

Attempt all remaining questions.

Instructions for better MCQ solving:

Remember! How you approach MCQs while sitting in the examination hall will create a big difference in your score. So, attempt MCQs wisely.

  • Be prepared to read fast and think on your own feet.
  • Always have a backup plan. i.e., Plan A, Plan B, etc.

Plan A:

Read the statement & understand it (read options & re-read, if u don’t get it for the very first time) Solve the Q & Anticipate the answer locate the answer & pick it.

Plan B:

Back solve.

Plan C:

Make an educated guess or skip and move on (Skipping is generally not good).

  • Read all 4 options before picking the right answer on your exam.
  • Pick the answer in the right spot.
  • Change answer if have a reason for doing this
    (your first hunch is usually correct)
  • Make sure that you are answering the question asked not the one you expected.
  • Don’t leave any questions unanswered
  • In questions with the “All of These” option, check whether any of the other three options are incorrect. 
    In questions with the “None of These” option, check whether any of the other three options are correct. E.g.,

Oxidation is

  1. Loss of electrons
  2. Addition of hydrogen
  3. Decrease in oxidation number
  4. All the above
  • Reading the last line in questions with very long statements might be helpful.
