If you don't know what is ECAT,

The Purpose of Entry Tests

In order to answer this question that how to do ECAT Preparation first, you need to understand the concept behind the entry tests. Why these universities take Entrance tests and cannot select students only on the basis of intermediate and matriculation marks? The answer to this question is that they want to select only those students who have good concepts and have a thorough understanding of subjects. They just simply don't want students who just memorize everything (Rattalized) and has no concept about the topic.

So, Entry Tests have become a filter to separate those with sound concepts from those who just memorize everything. Therefore, in entrance exams, we see that students with 1000+ marks are quite often unable to get through whereas an average student with 800 marks is able to get high marks in entry tests.

In the very start, the entry tests were quite simple and students were able to get high marks, but as the competition level and number of candidates have increased in recent years the difficult level of the entry test has also been raised. Hence, these days get good marks in entry tests of a good university a milestone in itself. Every year around 50,000 students appear in ECAT and there are about 3000 seats. So you can well imagine that the competition is very tough.

The increase in competition compels the universities to raise the level of difficulty of entry test so that only those students with sound concepts and understanding can get through the test.

In order to raise the difficulty level, the universities add conceptual questions and tricky questions, so that a student with no concept won't be able to solve them.

In this article, we will tell you some important things, which can help you in doing your preparation for entrance test effectively.

How To Prepare for ECAT

Difficulty Level Comparison

The difficulty level of ECAT in comparison with NUST NET, GIKI Entry Test, and PIEAS Entry Tests is low (less).

Those tests mentioned above are more difficult than UET ECAT, but it also depends upon the students as well. You will find many students saying that ECAT was difficult as compared to other tests. But the majority of the students we interacted in past years have said that ECAT was easier as compared to NUST NET and GIKI test.

But it does not mean that you take it easy, because the test might not be easy for you. So you must give your full effort to score well in the test.

After getting knowing the concepts behind these entry tests, let us focus on our methods for preparing these entry tests.

Follow the following steps for your preparation for ECAT.

Step 1: Course Books Comes First

There will be many people who will advise you leave course books and start studying Entry Test books available in the market. 

You should NOT act upon their advice. Here is what you should know about this thing. You should study your books first. Study every line of the book and make your concepts so sound that almost most of your preparation will be completed. 

Study every chapter of your book, and focus on topics and chapter which are Unimportant for Board Examination.
The unimportant topics for Board Examination are very important topics for Entry Tests.
For example, the domain range topic mathematics is considered unimportant for board exams, but it is important for entry tests. Similarly, we ignore topics like functions and its types, such topics are also included in entry tests. 

Prepare your books first and make your concepts well. Because if you will start solving questions in entry tests books, you will be completely confused and you will not be able to make concepts. 

If we want to build a high building then we must make its base very solid. That solid base will be built only if you prepare your books thoroughly and make good concepts.

It has come to our observations of past years that a fair number of students get good marks in entry tests just by preparing course books only.

Step 2: Entry Test Books

After you prepare your books, and you feel that you have good concepts about all the chapters of books and you are confident about it. You should move on to the next step, which is Preparing Entry Test Books.

It is to be noted here that you must, prepare course books first, and during preparing entry test books to keep your course books with you. Streamline your preparation with your book.

It is important to understand that why we should study entry test books, the reason for is already mentioned above that universities add tricky questions to dodge students and to test their concepts.

Therefore, you must need to practice those tricky questions, in order to make yourself comfortable with those tricky questions. In this way will get a good idea of the test.

Prepare these entry test books well, and practice all the questions by keeping your course books with yourself. Apply your concepts of course books to solve questions in entry test books.

Which books are best for Entry Test Preparation? There are many books available in the market for entry tests. We suggest that you take ECAT book of Doger Brothers, and KIPS Entry Test Books

Step 3: Preparing Past Papers

When you feel that you have done all your preparation well. You can move on to the next step which is preparing past papers. Download past papers from internet and you solve past papers of ECAT.

You can also find past papers of ECAT in some of the books of entry tests. Solving past papers will give you an edge over the entry test. You will have a very good idea about the test. It will also prepare you mentally for what is coming ahead of you. Yes! A Great Test of Concepts!

Analysing Past Papers

While solving past papers, you should also keep a deep eye on papers. Try to analyze the papers and observe carefully and try to find out that from which chapters and topics more MCQs are given in the papers.

By analyzing the past papers you can get an idea of topics which are more important for the test, you can make sure that your concepts related to those topics are as solid as the rock.

Step 4: An Extra Spoon of Sugar

There are many students who often say, that I am not good at making concepts. Such students are quite hardworking but the ability to not make good concepts put them behind in the race. These students need extra hard work.

Such students should try to give more time to their studies and double their efforts. For example, if a student with good concepts is studying five (5) hours daily then you should be studying at least eight to ten (8-10) hrs daily.

It is often said that the more you add sugar, their sweeter it will get.
So, to add an extra spoon of sugar to your preparation for ECAT, you learn tricks to solve mathematics and physics questions quickly. You can get tons of data available in soft copy on the internet which includes varieties of tricks to solve different types of questions quickly and easily.

For example, you download, files from facebook groups, there are many groups which have thousands of files available in them. You can go to such groups and download files from those groups.

Since there are thousands of files available in those groups, you should try not to waste your time on irrelevant files. Since, if you have completed all the steps given ahead then you will surely have a good idea about which files are useful and which files are trash. Ignore Rubbish!

In this way, it will give you an upper hand over many questions which come in entry test and can be solved with lengthy procedures, you will be able to solve them quickly and easily through short methods.

Step 5: Mental Preparation

Many of the students will think that mental preparation is not an important thing. But you must understand its importance. I will explain it with a simple example for your understanding.

Pakistan Cricket Team, prepare well in nets, they practice for hours in the ground. They practice bowling, batting, fielding, and strategies. But on match day, they get out like they don't even know how to play. So, what is the reason behind this? The reason is that they don't prepare their minds. Hence they are not able to control their nerves in the ground and they get panic very quickly.

The same thing happens with a lot of students, they prepare well. They give their complete time to study, they are very good at different concepts and solving questions.

UET ECAT Preparation

But on the day when it matters, they get panic and due to anxiety and stress their mind stops working. Once their mind stops working, they spoil their test completely.

Here is what you should do in order to avoid such circumstances.
  1. Prepare your mind by telling yourself that you can do it.
  2. Leave study on the test just prepare mentality for the test.
  3. Stay relax and calm and be confident.
  4. Tell yourself that its just a test, and not a matter of life and death.
  5. If you see any difficult question in the test, don't waste your a lot of time on it, move on.
  6. Don't compare yourself with other students, you have your own goodness and qualities.
  7. Stay happy and relax, release your anxiety and stress by having some fun with friends.
  8. Keep an eye on your wristwatch during the test, don't waste time on one difficult question.
  9. Divide your time between the different portions. Stay Calm and Happy!

Should I Join Any Academy

There are many academies in Pakistan which offer preparation for different entrance test preparation sessions. The one thing about these academies is very common, that all of them are very expensive. One session of such academies can cost you from Rs. 18,000 to Rs. 40,000.

For normal students, paying such high fee is close to impossible, we have come across many students who can't afford academies for the preparation due to financial issues.

If you are a hardworking student and you are determined to do preparation for ECAT effectively at home. Then, you should follow the steps cited above. If you will work for your success than you will be no less than those who prepare in these academies.Because you will have all those skills which they teach at academies. Follow the steps given above to compete with students who prepare at academies.

On the other hand, if you can afford an academy and willing to work hard then you can join the academy. Yes! It is true that by preparing from these academies you will have an edge our other students who prepare at home and by themselves.

But even if you join the academy and do no hard work then, you will get nothing but losing your time and money. At the end of the day, all it matters is that how much you do hard work, and how much effort you are putting in it to achieve your goal of getting a high score in UET ECAT.

We have seen students who have prepared at home and get high scores in Entry Tests and we have seen people preparing in academies and failing to get enough marks in Test and vice versa.
All in all, it's your effort and hard work is what pays off. Good luck!
