A well-known Psychologist once said:

‘It is our attitude at the beginning of the difficult task which, more than anything else, will affect your successful outcome.’

Nothing is hard to achieve if you are consistent and persistent in your attitude. And this attitude decides the approach you adopt. The same is the case with MDCAT. MDCAT is more about competition. And the competition is between YOU and YOU.

We cannot deny the importance of working hard, but when combined with Smart Learning, it’s the cherry on the top.
