The way you attempt your NEET-PG exam is a major factor that makes a difference in your percentile and finally enabling you to bag your dream seat. Since the exams for postgraduate medical seats have taken the online route for the past few years, it’s important for a student who has prepared well to be comfortable in the exam environment.
A computer-based exam throws certain challenges for test-takers. The challenges may be very subtle yet can have a huge difference in the final score. In this blog, we will discuss the major challenges faced by Medical PG aspirants.
A majority of students opt to study from textbooks. Not more than 10% prepare online. Reading a book and reading on a computer are two completely different things. So, when the exam is computer-based, it would be wise to practice online as it would help you to be aware of the exam software and tackle the questions. Otherwise, it would be very difficult to concentrate during the exam for such long durations.
Many students are not accustomed to the software used in the exam which causes their performance to drop and they’re not able to give their 100%. This gives an edge to those who were familiar with the pattern and they will ultimately get their preferred clinical seat. You must invest enough time in good online test series so that you can familiarize yourself with the format of the examination software.Also Read: 5 Tips to overcome anxiety before NEET PG Exam
The chances of marking the incorrect option by mistake are next to nil but the time taken to mark an option and move on to the next question is considerable while taking the exam online. Marking the option and moving to the next takes around 2-5 seconds based on how comfortable you are with using the mouse.With the use of various social media sites, people have become much more comfortable with navigation but if someone is not comfortable, they will lose a lot of valuable time in navigation.
A NEET-PG aspirant is well aware of the syllabus being too vast to be covered. Students are often seen struggling to cover the vast syllabus along with their medical job or internship. Here’s a 7 step guide to your last-minute PGMEE preparation.
Since the questions asked in the exam are randomized from a large set of questions it is difficult to predict the pattern of the paper in an online format. Unlike in the case of offline format, there is a predictable pattern of questions as well as topics that are associated with exams.Hence a more comprehensive preparation, as well as exposure to a larger set of question banks for practice, is required.
Therefore, to overcome these problems and perform well in the exam, start preparing now. Remember revision and practice is much more important than the initial preparation itself. Also, make yourself familiar with the software so that you get no surprises in the examination centre.Also read our blogs on high-yield topics (subject-wise) for NEET PG 2023 Preparation :
