Finishing the exam paper on time is really important as this way you attempt all the questions and also get the time to revise your paper. If you find it difficult to finish your exam on time, here are some tips that you should keep in mind while writing your paper.

Utilise the Fifteen Minutes Effectively: You get the first fifteen minutes to read the question paper.  Make sure that you read the questions thoroughly and analyse the answers.
Start Instantly: After you have read the questions, do not waste time on scanning your paper anymore. Do not even wait to see your friend’s reaction after receiving the paper.  Just concentrate on your paper and start answering the questions.
Answer the Questions which you Know: The sensible way to solve a question paper is to first attempt the questions which you know. Do not waste time thinking about answers for the questions which you have no idea of. This way even if you run out of time, you will not have the fear of leaving a question for which you knew the answer.
Avoid Taking Breaks: It is advisable that you avoid taking breaks in the examination hall as this will save your time. Go to the washroom before you sit for an exam and bring your water bottle along with you.
Be Alert: Alertness is really important while writing the paper. Since you are attempting the questions that you know first, make sure that you put correct question numbers with your answers to avoid any confusion while checking. If you are not alert, you might have to correct certain things at the last moment, thus ruining your entire effort.
Maintain a Constant Speed: You might begin the paper in a slow pace thinking that there is lot of time left. Never do this, maintain a constant speed from the beginning and see the difference. You will definitely finish your paper on time and even land up with some time to revise.
Prepare with
  • Solve as many mock papers as possible.If possible at least one full set everyday.

It is preparation time for those who are planning to sit for entrance tests in India. Many of you may be attending coaching classes or have started their exam preparation quite some time back. But tell me frankly –How many of you have a Study Plan?
If you don’t, here are a few tips as to how one can go about it as it is important to have a good study plan. It helps you to keep track of the syllabus you need to cover in a ranged time span.

Create a Study Plan for your Entrance Exam Preparation

A study plan that you develop yourself or center around yourself will go a long way toward helping you reach your goal. Develop a realistic plan that's established according to your needs and schedule, and supports the way you learn. This allows you to stick to your study plan and learn at your own pace, which contributes to the learning process. As the exam nears, you will need to create a plan to help you study effectively and minimize stress. The first step is to figure out how much time and effort you must dedicate to studying for the exam by asking the following questions:
1. How much material do you need to cover?
2. How difficult is the material?
3. How much time is available?
4. Do you have any other priorities during the study period?
5. What is the format of the entrance exam?
6. How important is the exam?
7. What is your performance target for the entrance test?
To prepare the study plan, map out all of the material that has to be covered and make a schedule showing what, when and how much you will study each day. If you have kept up with the course work, studying will involve revision of the material that you have already covered. If you are behind in the course, you will have to finish the readings and other uncompleted work before starting the revision (if there isn't enough time to go over everything, you must decide what is most important for the exam).

Here are some tips to create your study plan:

1. Budget your time realistically;
2. allocate the study time into several manageable study sessions;
3. divide the course material into small segments and assign them to the study sessions;
4. set clear and specific goals for the study sessions;
5. prioritize to ensure that material weighted more heavily in the exam gets sufficient study time;
6. take into account your familiarity with the material and the difficulty level;
7. don't make the study sessions too long;
8. A noisy area can increase stress while studying. Avoid studying with the television or radio on.    Pick a quiet place like your local library to study.
9. prevent boredom. Study sessions should have enough variety in terms of topics and activities to prevent boredom and loss of effectiveness;
10. Assess yourself. Take diagnostic or practice tests. Analyze the result. Mark the areas you could consider your weak areas. Concentrate on these areas when you begin studying.
11. avoid cramming before the exam; and
12. don't forget to include regular breaks.
So, understand why the Entrance Test (you are sitting for) is important to you. When preparing for the Exams, prepare through small, well-planned steps. Accomplish each step; build upon them. Then use these accomplishments as additional benefits and motivators to move you closer to the final achievement
Wish you success !

Passing entrance exam is not just blindly reading. You will automatically memorize, if you start understanding the topics, which you are reading. Simply turning the pages around will not put the facts into your brain. Therefore, it should not be your actual way of preparation.

Apart from group discussions, educational videos are available and easily accessible on the internet. It is important to relate the topics and subjects with each other. Because the answer to one question definitely lies somewhere in another topic.
Most of the questions in entrance test, have inter relationship with other questions. To answer these types of questions we need to be clear with all the topics in a subject.
Now we have the 3 secrets of medical entrance exams exposed, it depends how you actually apply them to you preparation.
