To get you started, here’s how you can still rock it even when you have only 48 hours to prepare for the AMCAT exam:


Go by the syllabus

One of the serious mistakes that students make while preparing for any exam is to go randomly about it.

Even though we know the syllabus is loosely all things important we have learned at university, it is best to stick to the prescribed syllabus.

Yes! Even when you have 48 hours left. In fact, especially, when you have 48 hours left.

Start with the meaty topics so you know you have covered what can get you more marks. Leave out the topics which you think would take up too much time and earn very little in return.

Go through short notes instead of digging’ deep

You don’t have time to prepare comprehensively. Accept that before you find yourself buried into one topic and half (or more) of the little time left is lost.

It can be easier if you have made some notes during your course and saved them.

If not, you can depend on guidebooks which cover everything in summaries and short notes. If your concepts are clear, it will work sufficiently.


Sample papers

It helps greatly to know the pattern of the paper. Sample papers and previous years question papers are a good way to get familiar with it. It also helps to know about the type of questions that might be asked in the exam.
