Basic tips and reminders
PrepareHOW wants to remind you that getting into a reputed medical university is not a child’s play. Consistency in effort to prepare for the entry test is an essential element for succeeding in scoring the admission. Applicants are advised to pitch in the time and effort and are advised to fix a time of attempting mock exam which maybe these past papers so that they are able to complete the paper in time in the real case scenario. This consistency attribute is not only limited to the entry test preparation but also it is important for scoring good grades in the university. A lot of students when they score an admission in a university they stop working harder as they have a perception that they can not be dropped out if they do not score well. But, it is a big misconception! If you studied hard for the entry test, you will have to study harder for the university exams.
