Stop Procrastination – Start NOW!

Study in You’re the Way That Works for You 

You’ll hear people giving you all kinds of tips. Some may tell you first to memorize and then write whatever you read, the other may say otherwise. The truth is when it comes to preparing for an exam, we all have our comfort zones and preparing methods that work for us. So, don’t listen to anyone telling you some magical formula. Just follow the way of studying that has worked for you in the past, and you’ll be good to go. 

Take Grasp of the Time by Taking Practice Test 

MCAT is not just about how good your memory or knowledge is. It is also a test of your time management skills. There is a great number of students who know everything on the paper, but they remain unable to score well because of poor management of time. If you don’t want to be one of these students, then make sure that you take a practice test now and then so that you have the hang of time management. This way, when exam day will come, time management will be the least of your worries. 

You Know Your Weak Spots – Work on Them 

You don’t need someone to tell you your weak spots in the study. We all know very well where we have to work to score well. So, identify your weak spots and strengthen them. Believe it or not, you can actually overcome your weakness in any subject just by giving it a few extra minutes every day. 

Set Daily Goals and Achieve Them 

When you are preparing for MCAT, every single day counts. If you think that you can skip a day and won’t make any difference, then you are wrong. So, make a daily schedule, set your goals, and don’t do anything else until you achieve your daily goals.
