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.

For Example:

  • 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.

For Example:

  • 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.

For Example:

  • 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. For this, you have to know which areas are of higher importance and which are not. You should know the statistical data, and TopGrade.pk provides you with all the statistical data through its intelligent and efficient system.

  • Always have a backup plan. i.e., Plan A, Plan B, etc.
    • I. Plan A:

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

    • II. Plan B:

      Back solve.

    • III. Plan C:

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

  • Read all four options before picking the correct 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 corrects. 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 a very lengthy statement might be helpful.
  • Checking dimensions in the physics paper might be helpful.

IV. Instructions for Making an Educated Guess:
  • If two responses appear to be equally correct, eliminate the response that seems least related to the question being asked.
  • Choose the most general answer when other choices are specific and vice versa.
  • Choose the most extended answer when others are much shorter.
  • Choose the answer with a middle value when other answers are higher or lower.
  • Choose neither of the similar answers. Choose one of two opposite answers.
  • Choose the answer that agrees grammatically. For example: a, and an = singular, are = plural.
  • Choose the answer most synonymous with keywords in the question or statement.
  • Choose familiar Vs. Unknown option.
  • Choose the option which sounds most logical to you

Avoid answers with absolutes in them.
(E.g., always, never, ever, none, all, only, etc.)

We can tell you that the difficulty level is going to increase this year as the content is mostly conceptual and they cannot just take books form a book so expect more conceptual content.

you should only use the federal text book if you already have studied from the federal text books in routine and if not then consulting new books at this time is not a wise thing to do.

From the exam’s point of view you have 3 areas to cover first ones are the ones that you have prepared and understand them well, second are the ones that you have read but do not understand them and third ones are that you neither have read nor do you understand them.

This is not a good idea and I would not recommend this at all as this will not let you organize your efforts but instead would end up scattering the efforts. So my recommendation is that you need to do everything in a sequence and cover everything systematically on daily basis and focus on the previous syllabus to give tests and try to spend considerable time on the new topics while making sure that the previous topics are prepared as well.

Let me answer this, I understand that most of our curriculum books are not written concept based, although there are many concepts in the books but the way these books are written, you can not understand many things conceptually. So that is where teaching comes in and students rely on teachers to prepare for their studies. Alhamdulillah all the video lectures that have been delivered by TopGrade.Pk are highly conceptual. Many students think that taking lectures at this stage would waste their time, this is not true. A good lecture never wastes your time and lectures from TopGrade.Pk are the best. The way I have given lectures about various subjects is a testament to this as it would take minimum 9 hours to cover the subject for you and I have covered in three hours with letting you know about exam structure and possible pitfalls. So, you can always cover it by reading but the best way to clarify the concepts is through lectures.

NUMS entry test scenario has not changed at all and it will be conducted at 11th October as usual. NUMS exam has nothing to do with National MDCAT 2020 apart from sharing the same syllabus and same conducting authority.

We don’t know what books you are using but according to our knowledge all the topics are almost similar in all the books. There is not much difference between those books and if there is any you can prepare the syllabus from TopGrade.Pk and this should cover the whole syllabus.

No! NUMS will get you admitted on the basis of its own test same goes with Agha Khan University both can get you admitted on the basis of their own entrance test but National MDCAT is completely different.

If you are looking to attempt the test according to schedule than you need to explore the TopGrade.Pk and I will show you my self as well. You see, you will enter in to the question bank, from the question bank you would go in to any subject such as chemistry and you can create test in multiple ways such as incorrect questions, unseen or un answered questions. You can choose sub sections or topics and cerate test from that as well. You can choose how many questions you need in a test as well. You can attempt the answers and then read up on the explanations as well. Once you are done with the test it will show you the result. It is such a powerful program that would benefit you on immense scale and I can guarantee you that there is no other program exist in Pakistan that can make offer you National MDCAT 2020 preparation at the moment. At national level if you need to prepare for National MDCAT 2020 than TopGrade.Pk is the only agency. Taking any other option is putting yourself at risk.

As I have said earlier that it has changed drastically and basically Punjab syllabus is discarded and NUMS syllabus is very different form the Punjab syllabus.

Yes you will have to apply again.

it all depends that which city you choose to do the studies. If you are aiming for Karachi then merit is a little low but in Lahore merit is always on a higher side. To be secure you need at least 90% score in National MDCAT.

No! November test is not related to the October test in any way shape or form. Syllabus is same and conducting authority is same but that’s about it. Both tests are not interdependent. Your marks are not bad but not too good either. You need 92% aggregate so you need to calculate how many marks you need in the exam to be successfully get admitted.

Short and precise answer is that for you NUMS syllabus is the syllabus that you need to prepare. Consult TopGrade.Pk for the missing topics but you will have to prepare the new syllabus.

We have devised a routine in the master planner that spans from 5 in the morning to 11 in the night. And the rest of the time is to sleep. It is a complete routine where between 5-6 am you say your prayer then for half an hour you do your exercise and from 6-7 you start studies 7-8 am do your breakfast take bath give time to your family and 8-9 and 9-10am do your studies. Tea break between 10-11 am and then start your studies again between 11-1pm , from 1-2 pm say your prayer and then do your lunch sleep for an hour and then start your studies again till 6pm and then 6-7 pm give some time to any sports activity say your prayer have your dinner and you can customize it accordingly as well. Then start your spell no 5 that will continue till 11 in the night. In total it has 5 study spells some of which are short and some are long. You can fit the subjects accordingly in that time allocation. Distribute the study spells according to the difficulty of your subjects and create a routine. Make sure you only give the allocated time to the subjects and do not waste extra time to the same subject or you will end up ignoring many things. Make sure you are doing to the point preparation instead of scattered preparation you need to work smart not hard.

Yes, 978 is good score and it is worth fighting. If you can secure 94% in entrance test than you can surely make it.

It's not different topics its just that they have explained differently in the learning outcome as learning outcome is an extension of the given content. We have maintained the whole TopGrade account according to the learning outcome and syllabus so have confidence on that course.

You will need to have a deep analysis. You do not need to take all the lectures at all. Take NUMS syllabus and prioritize the topics as high medium and low and see the lectures for high priority topics and leave the medium and low priority ones and just take test and consult the book if necessary. You can not watch all the lectures in this short time span.

Schedule will be provided by the TopGrade team so you need to contact them and yes, this course is going to be valid till the test if the test is delayed for a few weeks still this course will be valid till the test date.

Yes, if you can take better score in the entry test then in private you can have bright chances.

Answer is none of these books because in the exam they won’t ask you the values. Your exam is going to be conceptual. In case there will be any values than they are going to be the common ones. They will never ask about years or names of the scientists or anything like that. Even if they ever ask about the values than you would understand it any way. Just have a little faith.

Do not worry about A or O level books worry about the topic instead, if your concept is clear than what ever the question is you will know the answer and if you do not know the topic well that it does not matter from where the question is coming from. Make sure that the topics that you understand need no lecture revision and the ones you are not clear about should be given proper attention.

If you are planning to sit in next year MDCAT then study from your KPK text book and you can only come to Punjab on reciprocal seat which means that you still will have to get admission in your own province and then they can send you to Punjab and these are only a limited seat available.

Your score is good enough to get admission in public sector medical university in Pakistan, and as far as stress management is concerned, this is a game of nerves and the best way to manage stress is to prepare yourself for the worst and fight for the best, suppress your negative thoughts, when you accept the worst outcome, you achieve calmness and when you are calm then you can put your best foot forward. If you have negative thoughts such as I have limited time and so on then just say that I only have today in my hand and focus on the day in hand leave the rest of the thoughts aside. You can eliminate lot of stress by just staying in the present day.

Retain it and the parts that have been excluded, leave that aside.

If we talk about the private collages than the lowest you can expect is around 88 and some collages take donations and even can give you admission on lower marks as well. Some colleges charge 2 to 3 million extra and give you admission but in general it is 88% for the admission.

For public sector it is actually too high to be honest. For Lahore I would say it is close to 94% at least.

Confidence is directly related to practice. If you are practicing and you are doing it right, then it is confidence. Stay away from self-doubt and have self-belief. Have confidence in your self 85 right answers out of 100 is fine, do not stress over it. Your target should be that you need to attempt as many questions as possible, let me tell you a hard and fast rule. In next month or so attempt at least 800-1000 MCQs and learn from your mistakes. If you do that you will get admission and this is the whole secret. Just do this one thing and then if you score in FSC is 90% or above than you will get admission.

No, NUMS test is taken from a common syllabus that comes from all the text books collectively. It’s the national curriculum that form all the text books. I have seen them all and there is not much difference between those books. So, you better stick to your own text books.

It is usually remarkably low and around 75-80% you can get admissions in KPK and private sector.

Yes, we strongly suggest the past papers for preparations and we at TopGrade.Pk are feeding NUMS last four years past papers into the system.

Yes NUMS and National MDCAT 2020 syllabus is the same.

It mainly depends on your domicile, students from Federal have an opportunity to move to KPK so it all depends on your domicile.

There is a lot of inter college variation and it is not a set science and it determines based on many situations but a calculated guess is that it would be around 80 to 85% marks can get you admission.

Do not read any books in English, for English just TopGrade.Pk is more than enough. Does not matter if you are from Punjab, KPK or AJK you just need to see lectures, revision notes and MCQs from TopGrade and that should be enough. Try not to waste your time on any other source. You absolutely do not need to cram the lines you just attempt regular tests from TopGrade.Pk and learn from mistakes that’s all you need to do.

Punjab has its merit usually at higher side. Lowest is usually between 85% but I know lots of people who get the admission processed by going out of the way such as donations and what not. I know people who had 70-75% marks and they somehow managed to secure the admission somewhere. Its all about navigating the target.

As far as we know National MDCAT is applicable because if MCAT or provinces were still to take the entrance exam than there was not point giving the concept of National MDCAT. So in my opinion they will remove it from the website soon. In your best interest, you should focus on the National MDCAT and prepare for that. Logically speaking I do not think that only Sindh province can take a separate entry test. Other wise P.M.D.C would not recognize the collages that had not gone through the process. And if they are not recognized than those doctors would not be able to do the practice. There are a lot of places where conflict of interest is present but my final advice is that that’s fine if you would like to give test for MCAT but prepare yourself for National MDCAT at all costs.

We are going to handover the whole content to you guys and it would be up to you that if you would like to prepare for 8/12 or 16 hours a day. You can create as many tests as you like we have given you free limit. You can watch videos , lectures, listen to the revision notes, its not a big deal. This is the beauty of TopGrade.Pk that we tailor make the preparation accordingly.
