Good DNB CET Results

How perception of ‘easy MCQs’ stand in your way of good DNB CET result?

You see what you want to see.

If you are asked about what is important for a good DNB CET result most people first think about getting the new questions correct. You spend lot of time reading a new question or a difficult question carefully. Now you have a ‘easy’ question next. This article is about a common mistake made by candidates in high pressured exam situations. 

What do you see in an easy MCQ? Why is it important for a good DNB CET result?

Once you have scanned the next question, familiarity makes you happier. This is a risk. You see what you want to see especially after a difficult question, in a high pressured exam situation. Your brain can trick you into thinking that the question is asking you something that it’s not. It is easier to choose a distractor MCQ as answer and move to the next one. This is a mistake that needs to be avoided at any cost in your DNB CET exam if you wish a good result.

Why equal attention to all questions is important for good results in DNB CET? A good proportion of DNB CET questions are perceived as ‘easy’. Getting an easy question wrong will have more devastating effect on your final score than getting a difficult question wrong. A few such mistakes is all it takes to bring your score down. This applies to DNB CET and AIPGMEE exams. 

Try and read MCQ stems carefully, preferably twice. Make sure that you don’t jump into conclusions by mere scanning the question. This will also skew your thinking, and your initial impression may not serve you very well for a good DNB CET exam result.
