GPAT 2020 Preparation Tips

By: Archana on May 22, 2019

GPAT Exam is conducted to facilitate admission into the Bachelor of Pharmacy course and to award fellowship to eligible Pharmacy graduates. So far, the GPAT Exam Pattern was a mixture of objective questions, fill in the blanks and matching the right answers, however, it was changed to a completely objective paper pattern. There is a one third negative marking assigned to every wrong answer.

  1. Clear your basic concepts from your B.Pharm text books before you use additional study material.
  2. Study All topics given in detailed syllabus apart from important topics.
  3. Use topic-area charts for quick revision.
  4. Pay attention to details as most often questions are based on specific points.
  5. Remember names of drugs, ingredients etc by using mnemonics.
  6. Practice sketching molecular structures, it will help you remember them easily.
  7. Group study is helpful for GPAT preparation; you can quiz each other with Multiple Choice Questions.
  8. Although the GPAT examination is based on Multiple Choice Questions practice writing answers in your own words. This will help you check your understanding of the topic.
  9. Practice numericals, although there are not many numerical problems in the exam paper, regular practice will score you easy marks on the 3-4 numerical questions that do come in the question paper.
  10. The most effective way to prepare is by practicing sample papers/previous year papers.
  11. Attempt all the questions when you practice sample papers/previous year papers and correct them after you complete the entire paper. This will help you identify your weak areas and you can study those areas thoroughly.
  12. During the exam skip any question you are not sure of to avoid negative marking.
