AKU Test Prep Tips!
But ofcourse, questions purely from the Inter syllabus do appear - (and they must or else PMDC say phadda 'on'). You could sit down and study/rattofy all the 11th and 12th grade Bio Phy Chem Inter books like a champ; ofcourse itll help you out if you have plenty of time, but
i doubt such elaborate measures are at all necessary. Contrary to popular practice, I would encourage you to look at the AKU-IED syllabus that the AKU college board uses for their students. Its on their website: Admission test cirriculum
Try highlighting all the topics which seem new and then work on them. This technique is helpful when it comes to physics and chemistry but not biology. The biology syllabus is significantly alien to the Alevel one.
The AKU test has a reputation of being a really bad and tough test that makes sure the cream of the cream makes it to the next step of the admission process. Personally, i don't think that is entirely true. Sure they want intelligent people, but want they don't need are just rattofiers (wrote-memorizers). They want people who understand what they learnt at school and can effectively apply that knowledge to new situations by analyzing and thinking critically. Thats why you often face an MCQ question like: Why does an Elephant have large paws? Well everyone knows pressure = force/area. But those who truly understand this concept can apply it to this unfamiliar question by saying that it has large paws to reduce the pressure it exerts on the ground due to its enormous weight. This prevents it from sinking too deep into the ground. This may sound simple, but its the type of question you'll face. They normally don't ask straight forward questions like Pressure=? a) force/volume b) force/unit area ... etc
So here are a few tips to help you prepare for the test. I've divided the post into subjects:
