I received a lot of mails in which students asked a single question, "How To Prepare English Vocabulary Words given in Syllabus of MCAT?". So let me tell you a bit about it and You can also download a list OF all English Vocabulary words in UHS MCAT with there meanings and synonymous from here
English Vocabulary in MCAT :
In 2011 UHS introduced syllabus for MCAT and gave 872 words with it. In MCAT 2012 they have continued the policy. They have given that 10 MCQs would be given from Vocabulary portion out of 30. But that is not the case.
In this section we will take an account of MCAT taken by U.H.S. its Syllabus, Date and also why is it taken?
Previously the Medical entry Test was taken by the respective universities of the specific cities.
Then the government made a standardized step and medical entry test for admission in all Punjab medical institutes was given under University of Health Sciences (UHS).
Why is Entry Test taken :
In Pakistan the students consider M.B.B.S and B.D.S as their ultimate choice. This gives rise to tremendous amount of competition. As the no. of seats is limited, almost 3000 ( the no. increases each year). It became necessary for the government to Choose best students for admission on these limited no. ofseats.
But question arises why the F.Sc marks are not considered as the only criteria for admission?
The answer is pretty controversial.
According to some personals of UHS and Medical institutes the chief reason is the low standard of the F.Sc Exams. (Although students might not agree with it).
2nd reason we found was that due to high competition UHS wanted to give seats to those students only which had high I.Q level and were better in Understanding things in a better way rather then cramping the text books. So always try to develop a high in sight of the subject you study. It will be very beneficial for you in entry test exam.

Date of Entry Test
