3 Study Tips from new research for Medical PG EntranceExam Preparation

The pressure of Medical PG Entrance exam preparation in the coming months with AIIMS, DNB, AIPGMEE 2016 and Indian State PG exams 2016 in a row is hard to ignore. The ‘how’, ‘what’ and ‘when’ question about preparation is important to tackle in the coming months to secure your chosen area of speciality. Here you have 3 important points on how best to prepare for exams from new researches on learning.

I. INTERVAL STUDY

AIPGMEE preparation in intervals

Take breaks and spread out your learning

Most people dedicate a chunk of time for study and often give-up before even starting. This is a bad idea both from the perspective of procrastination and from the perspective of memory efficiency. 

It is recommended to study in intervals of 20-50minutes and take a break of 5-10 minutes. Distributing your study over a longer period is the best for long term memory. E.g. 1 slot of 40 minutes daily and 3 slots of 40 minutes over weekend for your AIPGMEE preparation is likely to retain more than 1 full-time (6 hours) Saturday reading. Points to remember: spread out reading & take intervals.

II. MINIMISE DISTRACTION

During the 50 minutes study it is best to avoid distractions even if it helps to calm you down. A good example is playing music in the background when you prepare for your AIPGMEE exam. Music is a distractor although relaxing. No music, No watching TV, No texting friends, No eating, No Facebook etc during the 50 minutes. You could do this during the 10 minute break. This gives maximum long term retention. If you have to listen to music, instrumental is the best because it doesn’t have lyrics or words. 

III. MAXIMISING PRACTICE EXAMS

A leading 2013 research study on learning techniques shows that Practice Testing is many times superior to conventional highlighting, summarising and re-reading. This is highly recommended and G2M mock test series is optimised for maximum learning and retention. We recommend platinum access for your study until the end of State PG exams in March-April 2016.
