Where do you stand in MCAT 2013?

Updated on June 19, 2013

"Not failure but low aim is crime"

Most of you would be appearing in the entry test this year for the first time while unfortunately some of you would be reappearing in the test.

"Develop success from failures. Discouragement and failure are two of the surest stepping stones to success".

Don't feel any hesitation if you are repeating a class or any subject. You were unable to achieve your goal this year. There can be a number of reasons behind this. So now you must ponder over those reasons and eliminate the faults in you, if any. You must take a break from the sources which caused your failure.

"Failure is the key to success; each mistake teaches us something".

Begin your journey by keeping the goal in your mind. Start from the subject which seems difficult to you, because once you are done with them, the remaining ones will be a piece of cake for you. Make a complete time table for yourself. If you are not in favor of it then at-least fix some days for some chapters and try to finish them within that tenure. This would surely help you in managing your time effectively......

Comparison is the best way to judge your progress. But don't compare yourself with others, Just compare your yesterday with your today

Analysis of above statistics

From the above figures you people can see that number of students appearing in MCAT is increasing each year. In 2009 it was 20228 , increased to 30026 in 2010 , then to 33703 and this year it was 36100. Next year this number will be somewhere near 40000.
Along with this overall increase the number of students securing marks more than 60% is also increasing. The competition is getting tough and tough infact tougher.
Once a senior fellow visited us in college. We asked him about his professional life. He had completed his MBBS when I was in Fsc part 2. His life was really a tough one. He had to struggle a lot. He used to travel daily for 4 hours on his bicycle to come to college in Fsc. He never missed any class. And today we people instead of having our colleges at our doorway skip many of our classes :/
Secondly and most important thing about preparation of MCAT. We asked him how he used to prepare for the test. I just loved his answer. He said
"I studied by keeping a simple line in my mind. Either I will get admission in MBBS or I'll die"
This is called the passion. This line does not mean that he was thinking to die in case he didn't get admission in some medical college, which most of the students think nowadays. He actually meant that he wanted to get admission at any cost. He cut short his sleeping hours, his games, everything and just worked in order to achieve his aim. And there he is now "A Doctor".
Now let us see our conditions. Do we keep our goals in mind?? Are we really sincere with us? Are we really sacrificing our sleeping hours , our talks with friends ??
Hardly a few of us. And those who aren't, as a result waste a complete year of their life. I have seen a number of fellows who wasted a year but they got some lesson from that and then got admission next year. Try to be on track without losing your year/years. If you can get admission in next year then you could also have got this year.
Summing up my words, understand the value of time. It will pass away if you are wasting it and it will also pass if you are working hard to catch your dreams. So isn't it better to pass this time in its best possible way?? Do think once where you stand!
