Tip 1: Understand Nust Entry Test (NET)
Having a dream is easy but working to achieve it requires self-determination and effort in the right direction.
The first step is to understand what you are signing up for. Go to the official site of NUST and read the requirements thoroughly to get into NUST. This includes understanding the duration of the test, which is 3 hours. Additionally, the subjects for each type of test, the total questions of the test, which are 200, and the weightages mentioned on their website as a guide. Moreover, you need to know the syllabus of the test. NET-1 tends to be easier than NET-3 as the latter one involves the whole syllabus of FSC Part-II.
Tip 2: Have a Target and Schedule Yourself
Do your research of how many minimum marks you require to get into NUST. Once you have identified this, have a target that is comparatively above this. While setting a target for yourself, it’s an excellent approach to analyze your workload and make an achievable goal for yourself. However, do not be so easy on yourself and keep it a bare minimum. After setting a goal, schedule your remaining days till the exam day. Keep a small target to be achieved per day, keeping in mind your other activities. The key tip here is to make a realistic schedule that you know you will be able to achieve. However, your target should be in a way that you push yourself to achieve it a bit. This means that they do not keep a relaxed one with the fear of not achieving a higher target.
Tip 3: Get to know the tips to ace the Nust Entry Test Exam
The technique of attempting exam matters a lot. Thus, get familiarized with some of the unique tips of attempting NET. For instance, one standard piece of advice is to divide your total time with the questions to be attempted and then have an idea of how much time you can spend on one question. Moreover, while attempting the questions, move to the next question if you realize that you are going above the time. However, it’s always recommended to have a guess in such a question as there is no negative marking, and there would be a 0.25% chance of your answer being the correct one.
Tip 4: Prepare what the NUST Entry Test requires
It is essential to have the concepts that will be judged in the test clear. It is not recommended to cram the information without understanding it. Over here, if you are an FSC student, you will have an edge as you have been getting across those concepts for 1-2 years. However, even if you are an A ‘levels student, do not worry. Get a hand over the formulas and fundamental principles, and you will be good to go. Selective studying is never recommended because it just reduces your chance of scoring more on the test. In addition to this, it is wise to focus on the subjects that have more weightage. For instance, a Computer Science test is going to include 80 mathematics’, 60 physics, and 30 computer science/ chemistry questions. Thus, focusing on mathematics more would not be a bad idea in case you are running short on time for the preparation.
Tip 5: Practice, practice, practice!
Practice is the key to ace an exam. Practice as much as you can. Moreover, it is important that you practice the right questions. So, try to get a hold of official past papers or some authentic resource books that contain questions in the exact pattern as in the actual test. Thus, this will prepare you for the test in the best way.
The NET is not out of the universe test. Focus on preparing timely in an intelligent way. Do not push your preparation to the last minute. Have a proper sleep before the test and a good breakfast before going to the test center to stay vigilant and fresh during the test. Remember, “If you give up on your dreams, what’s left?” (Jim Carrey). Thus, once you dreamt of going to NUST for your undergraduate, make that happen.
