A lot of people suggest creating a timetable and sticking to it. But this doesn’t always work. Sometimes putting too much pressure on yourself to study a given subject for a period of time won’t be productive. Instead, try to study subjects that you feel motivated to study and switch whenever you get bored. Keep things interesting!

Find Good Online Lectures to Clear Concepts

Sometimes reading from notes or books is not enough. If you need more guidance to understand concepts, try to find good free online lectures or crash courses. This free online crash course for ECAT/MDCAT is a good example of how you can study for tough subjects easily in a short amount of time.

Practice with Past Papers and Guess Papers

The BEST way to prepare isn’t to read notes or even just watch lectures – you have to PRACTICE! And there’s no better way than question banks and guess papers. These will give you an idea of the paper pattern and the exact questions that have been included in past years. The more you practice, the better you will get!
