2. Analyze in detail about the subjects you choose

Before starting preparation, it is important to understand about the subjects by refereeing to the contents, sample questions, Appendix/Data sheets etc., which is provided in test specification for each subject.   Once the analysis is done, you can collect necessary notes, text books, printouts etc., from your previous years of studies, as EmSAT Achieve test is focusing on basics and fundamentals required to enter university/college.

But this is not the right time to start, whether you are preparing for EmSAT or any competitive exams, it is better to start preparing at least 1-2 months prior to the exams to achieve a better score so that you will be having sufficient time to study and revise important concepts as per test specification. While studying for the first time, make sure to prepare separates notes or topic summery, which is really going to help for last-minute revision as it is not possible to revise the entire subject in a short span of time.

4. Start solving Past/ Sample papers

To achieve a good score in any competitive exams, it is important to solve past papers, which will give you a clear understanding of test pattern, concepts, and also help you to memorizing the formulas. As EmSAT test does not provide many sample/ past papers, you can find any papers related with concepts or topics mentioned in test syllabus and start practicing. It is not necessary to solve only EmSAT Papers, you can solve any equivalent test papers to master your concepts as this is really going to help you to boost your scores. Try to solve as many sample papers you can for better understanding of the test.

5. Revise concepts and solve past/ sample papers within specified time limit

As almost all competitive exams are time based, it is very important to complete the test within specified time limit, otherwise you may pay a huge penalty for not completing on time in terms of score what you going to receive.

As EmSAT is timed computer based test, student’s needs to complete the each test in specified time limit, this skill can only be improved by lot of timed practice.  

How can a complete the test on Time?

Well, this is the question which every student ask. The best solution to this is start solving sample/past papers with time.  As every subjects has different number of questions and different timings, first calculate how many questions are there in that test and then calculate how long you can take to solve each questions. At the beginning, you may face challenges, but after few practice you surely able to complete the questions on time.

Remember, all competitive exams have three types of questions, Easy, Medium, and Hard(Tricky). Try to solve easy question less then the specified time you assigned so that the remaining time you can utilize it for hard/tricky questions.
