I am pharmacy student , for preparation of GPAT 2021 How you can help me?
Instead of choosing a random topic from the syllabus, you must break your preparation into sections. Sub-topics from each section should be selected and then strategy on clearing concepts must be made. Making short notes and flashcards will prove helpful in the last few days before the exam. Never leave any concepts doubtful or unsolved. Once done with the syllabus and concept clarity, you should move towards solving previous years papers. Give mock tests as much as possible. Time management is one more important thing you should look upon. Some important topics you must revise- Pharmacology, Pharmaceutics, Pharm Analysis, Pharmacognosy, and Pharmaceutical chemistry (especially Organic chemistry). Topics like NMR spectroscopy, Mass spectrometry, IR and UV have been frequently covered in the previous years’ question papers. You must put greater emphasis on these while preparing for GPAT.
