Re: How to study for AKU test

nudrat said:
hey anyone having any info abt agha khan's entrance test , please share it with me :?
Hello Nudrat,
Are u taking Aga khan's test this year ? I can tell u everything about the test that u want to know.. I took the test last year and I passed it and then I was required to get atleast 3 B's in A level before I cud be interviewed ..but unfortunately i got 1 B and 2 C's in A level due to Practicals .... !
Anyhow ... for Aga khan u shud study from Federal board books.... i mean Phy, chem, botany and zoology ....u shud study ffrom them! Thats a minimum .... apart from them u shud study those topics from else where like A level books etc ... but U MUST study them from federal board books bcoz thats where they give the test from ! And try not to memorize things from those books ! Just make your concepts crystal clear ... they dont ask complicated topics ... they give questions on very simple phenomenon but they questions are a bit diff however easier for those whose concepts are clear !
And one more thing, in Aga khan's application it is stated that the maths section comes from matric ...but thats not so ...there are so many questions that are not there in matric... for example last year when i was taking the test .... there was a question on "probability ". This topic is NOT in matric book ! The best way to prepare for maths of the entry test is to study the O Level Maths book ! That wud be enough. And then for practice try solving the maths questions of SAT I maths....
If u want to know anything else .... feel free to ask ...
See ya

Hi,
so did u take the interview ? 69% isnt that bad score..... if u have 70% then u have pretty high chances ! i tool the test from peshawar...i live in peshawar. I am improving the 2 C's ...so again i am applying on a pending result basis.....

Yeah thats what i told u in the begining that try doing SAT subject test's papers ....formerly called SAT II!

one more thing,
there are some MCQ's books by Indian writers ...they are really good ..alot better than SAT II. there are only a few MCQ's of every topic in Barron's SAT II but those indian books have thousands ! try doing them ...they are very helpful ...i havent started them yet ..but soon i will inshallah :)

well I think the content in FSc book is enough, and as far as my prep is concerned I think I would just go through the frequently asked topics from the FSc books and for the rest I would just stick to the sat subject books as I don't have enough time!!

r Phy, chem, botany and zoology the only subjects asessed????
Although it's very easy to just ask a question, you should also put some time and effort into finding information on your own. All the information regarding which form the AKU Entry test will be in is available on the Aga Khan website.

If you're serious about taking and doing well on the entrance test get the FSc books. Ask family/friends to mail them to you or do whatever it takes. Getting into AKU isn't easy and studying from alternative books would be giving yourself a disadvantage.
