National MDCAT is mandatory to take admission in any public or private medical institute in Pakistan. Every year thousands of students appear in this exam. Fresh candidates and many repeaters appear in the test to ace this exam and secure their future. National MDCAT is the test of abilities and specific skills of a student under pressure; PMC holds it.

- D G Khan
- D I Khan
9. What Is the Difficulty Level of NMDCAT?
Well, the difficulty level of the National MDCAT 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 you cannot get high scores in this exam with carelessness. In National MDCAT, only Multiple-choice questions (MCQs) are asked, which can be of three types
I. Memory-Based Questions:
Memory-based questions are straight-away lines from the books.
- Oxidation is
- 1. Loss of electrons
- 2. Addition of hydrogen
- 3. Decrease in oxidation number
- 4. All the above
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.
II. Analysis-Based Questions:
Analysis-based questions are concepts of the books.
- Which of the following statements is correct?
- a. Vectors can never be added and subtracted by simple arithmetic means.
- b. Vectors can always be added and subtracted by simple arithmetic means.
- c. Vectors can sometimes be added and subtracted by simple arithmetic means.
- d. None of the above.
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.
III. Application-Based Questions:
Applications-based questions are related to real-life situations.
- A normal person grows 20% in height from age 10 to 8, and 18 to 25 grows 5% to 10%. Ali is 1.625 meters tall at the age of 10; maximum, how tall would he be at the age of 25?
- a. 1.4255 m
- b. 2.0475 m
- c. 2.1450 m
- d. 3.2434 m
- e. 4.1250 m
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 they 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. Why Do Students Fail in NMDCAT?
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.” National MDCAT 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, you can better rectify them before you make those mistakes. Let us explain the common mistakes done by students and help you not do the same.
Common mistakes done by students are:
I. Not Having Own Study Plan and Relying on Teachers Completely:
Most students don’t devise their study schedules and rely entirely on teachers or institutes for better preparation, ultimately a wrong approach. The only person who can make sure you succeed in this exam is you and no one else. It is well said that: “SELF REALIZATION is the best teacher, SELF LEARNING is the best teaching, and SELF PRACTICING is the best motivation.”
II. Studying In Chronological Order Rather Than Priority Order:
This is another very wrong approach of students towards their National MDCAT prep. They don’t prioritize the topics which are of higher importance in exams. NMDCAT syllabus is not short. It is a lengthy syllabus. You have to study two years of the syllabus in a few months. So, if you start preparing from one side, i.e., in chronological order, you may not have a stronghold on those most or more critical topics in the exam. It is well said that. “There is no such thing as “I don’t have time”- you just simply need to prioritize better.”
III. Using Passive Study Strategies:
How can you know that your study strategy is passive? 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 learn actively, you need seriousness. It would be best if you were compassionate about your goal. If you are studying and questions are not developing in your mind related to your topic, you are studying passively. You should know that knowing the question is the half answer. So, to learn actively, you should develop inquiries related to the topic and try to find the answers.
IV. Not Analyzing and Improving Your Test-Taking Skills:
When you take tests during National MDCAT prep, you will make mistakes, of course. But the critical point which will differentiate you from other students is that you learn from those mistakes. Try not to make the same mistake again. After taking a test, look for the MCQs which are wrong. This will prevent you from making the same mistake in an actual exam.
V. Not Devising Ways of Fast Revision Along with Your Classes:
Many students keep on preparing for the exam and don’t realize that they will need to revise the whole syllabus once or twice at the end of preparation. 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.
VI. 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 a grip of, you still need to see that topic based on the National MDCAT. At least, you need to revise that.
VII. Memorizing Rather Than Understanding:
Some students are habitual of cramming. But you cannot cram the whole syllabus of National MDCAT because it consists of F.Sc parts 1 & 2, which is quite a lengthy syllabus to be true. Well, of course, some topics can be memorized, but many of the conceptual issues need proper understanding. Otherwise, your chances of failure would increase.
VIII. Failing To Master Certain High-Yield Subjects or Topics Owing to Overconfidence:
There can be some topics or even subjects that you think you can easily do based on your F.Sc scores or some other factors, etc. Let’s suppose you think you are good at physics, and while National MDCAT prep you don’t take it seriously, your chances of failure are relatively high. No matter how good you were at that subject or topic, it would be best if you still went through it thoroughly because those topics can be of high yield in National MDCAT.
IX. Studying Material That Is Rarely Tested on the MDCAT:
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 trial. Yes, there will be difficult questions, but you have to smartly analyze which questions should be your concern and which should not.
X Trying To Do It All Alone:
If you think you can prepare for National MDCAT alone and you don’t need any teacher or guidance, you are on a completely wrong path. It doesn’t matter how many marks you have got in your matric, F.Sc, etc., NMDCAT 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.
XI. Not Testing Yourselves on The Material:
If you are preparing yourself for the National MDCAT exam but not taking tests, you are entirely at a loss. Because it doesn’t matter how well 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, it would be best if you gave as many tests as you can before you appear in the actual exam.
XII. 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.
XIII. Not Having a Proper Routine/Timetable:
Your daily routine plays a vital 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 National MDCAT consists of two years of content which is not an easy task to cover in a few months, so you need a proper timetable to cover your syllabus and score good marks.
XIV. Negative Thinking:
Many capable students fail because of just negative thinking. They think that they cannot do it, and it’s a very wrong approach. Positive thinking plays a significant 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.
11. How to Study for Scoring Higher on NMDCAT?
- Focus More on Most Likely to Be Tested Topics:
National MDCAT is not an easy exam to pass. As you know, there are thousands of students who apply for this exam every year. To ace this exam, you have to be serious about your future. The key to success in any exam is hard work along with smart work. You should know where to put maximum effort and where to put minimum. TopGrade.pk provides you with the best strategy to ace this exam. Let us tell you that how you can score higher in NMDCAT.
