MCAT/MDCAT GUIDE FOR A'LEVEL STUDENTS (PART II)

**UPDATE**: The MCAT has now been renamed to MDCAT with some important changes in the syllabus. Because I am busy in my medical university, I can't add the new syllabus changes to my posts. Please do go through the revised MDCAT syllabus and use my guides for the unchanged part of the syllabus!

This blog post is a continuation of the the PART I guide that you can find by clicking here.

For every subject, the Part II syllabus carries more weightage so it should be of your prime focus.

PHYSICS PART II
Expected time: 7 days

6. DEFORMATION  OF SOLIDS
Chapter # 17
Questions: 02

One of the easiest chapters in Physics in Part II. It will hardly take you 20 minutes ti learn. The questions they ask about this chapter might not be so straightforward though. In fact the questions will probably be conceptual and A'level style. So polish up your past knowledge before moving on to FSC.

• Point (a) to (c) are covered in only 3 pages that are from 138 - 140.
• Point (d) is covered on page 142.

9. ELECTRONICS
Chapter # 18 & #14
Questions: 02

Again, a very small chapter but don't be deceived by it's length. The questions they ask for this chapter used to give me a migraine. The text is simple but you need to have the functions of gates on your tips to solve the MCQs. They will most probably give you a diagram with several gates attached and ask you for the final output. If you have the KIPS past papers or books, you'll know what I mean.

• Point (a) is covered on pages 167 - 169. (XOR and XNOR are not included)
• Point (b) is covered on pages 68 - 70

10. CURRENT ELECTRICITY
Chapter # 12 & # 13
Questions: 03

This chapter is he easiest in the whole of the MCAT syllabus. It has only basic concepts that you have done a billion times before. No details whatsoever. The questions are simple too.

• Point (a) and (b) are covered on pages 36-37
• Point (c) and (d) are covered on pages 22 - 26. The details of capacitor isn't written in the syllabus but I did it anyway.

11. MAGNETISM & ELECTROMAGNETISM
Chapter # 14
Questions: 03

Another easy chapter with only basics.

• Point (a) (i) is covered on pages 57 - 58. The magnetic field formula is not written in the FSC book. So recall the A'levels one i.e. B= uI/2πr
• Point (a) (ii) is not in the book. The formula is written in the syllabus and all you have to do is apply it. (B=unI)
• Point (b) is not in the book either. You will have to study it from the KIPS book or your A'levels books.

12. MODERN PHYSICS
Chapter # 20
Questions: 07

Seven questions! Not that's a lot, right? So you can expect this chapter to be long. It isn't hard, don't worry. Mostly it's just learning the text and values.

• Point (a) is covered on pages 208 - 210. You should remember the wavelength and frequency of X-rays very well.
• Point (b) is not in the book. Refer to the KIPS book
• Point (c) is covered on pages 210 - 211
• Point (d) and (e) is on page 211. CT scanning/ CAT is the same thing. All that is required is the small paragraph on page 211.
• Point (f) is new concept. It is covered on pages 213 - 215
• Point (g) is covered on pages 215 - 216. It is VERY important.

13. NUCLEAR PHYSICS
Chapter # 21
Questions: 07

Another long chapter as you can judge by the number of questions it will have. Personally, even though it was basically all cramming the values and he text, I found it harder than most topics. This chapter is a lot more detailed than the one we did in our A'levels and it has A LOT of learning.

• Point (a) is covered on pages 226 - 227, 232 - 234. The table on page 234 is extremely important.
• Point (b) is covered on pages 227 - 228. Now even though the syllabus does not specifically mention half lives, you still have to know the basic formulas and the values of certain isotopes half lives on page 231, second paragraph. The graph and other details aren't required.
• Point (c) is not in the book. You can find it in the KETS book.
• Point (d) is covered on pages 234 - 237. Solid state detector is not included so don't waste your time on it.
• Point (e) is very important and is covered on pages 249 - 254. Make sure to learn and cram all the values and figures. Even the smallest, most insignificant ones.

CHEMISTRY PART II
Expected time: 15 days

Inorganic Chemistry and Organic Chemistry are covered in part II. Most of the questions in your Chemistry section will be from Organic chemistry, and I want to point out here that organic chemistry of FSC is very different than the A'levels one. The terms used are more primitive and not up to date. You might take some time with the terms used in it. But don't panic, you'll get used to it after revising again and again.

INORGANIC CHEMISTRY

1. PERIODS
Chapter # 1
Questions: 02

The entire chapter from page 1 - 10 is included. Only pages 11 - 15 are not included.

2. GROUPS
Chapter # 2, #3, #5
Questions: 02

As you can read from the syllabus, only group II, IV, VII and VIII and included. Each of these groups are in separate chapters. Let's see the learning outcomes now.

The first sentence tells us that you have to describe and explain the variations in each group

For Group II: Read the whole of the text related to Alkaline Earth metals in Chapter # 2. But learn from pages 24 - 29 only.

For Group IV: Skip all of the text related to group III and startearning from pages 44-48.

For Group VII and VIII: Move to chapter # 5 and learn EVERYTHING in it except from page 84 - 87 and page 92.

The learning outcomes have now all been covered. The only point that isn't fully covered is (c) : water purification. For that you will have to open up chapter # 16 pg 316 and learn from there.

3. TRANSITION ELEMENTS
Chapter # 6
Questions: 02

This chapter is pretty average. It's harder than the A'levels one because it has things that you have to cram. All of the points are covered from pages 97 - 105. After page 106, nothing is included.

4. ELEMENTS OF BIOLOGICAL IMPORTANCE
Chapter # 8 (FSC I), Chapter # 4, #15, #16
Questions: 04

This topic isn't exactly a whole separate chapter in the book. You have to search out the whole book for it. Here's where every point is covered:

• Point (a) is covered in the KIPS book
• Point (b) is what you have already studied in Chapter 8 in part I
• Point (c) is covered on pages 292 and pg 61-62.
• Point (d) is covered on pages 309, 310.
• Point (e) is covered on pages 70-72

ORGANIC CHEMISTRY

1. FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLES
Chapter # 7, # 10
Question: 02

Now starts the hard part, so brace yourself. Again, I will remind you. He naming of compounds in Organic Chemistry is different than what we have studied.

• Point (a) is covered on pages 123 - 125
• I did point (b) by revising my AS notes
• For point (c) refer to the KIPS book
• Point (d) is covered on page 199
• Point (e) is on page 130 - 132 and it is VERY IMPORTANT
• Point (f) is covered in the KETS book
• For point (g) you have to learn the text under the heading 'Nomenclature' in Chapter # 8, #11 & # 13

2. HYDROCARBONS
Chapter # 8 & #9
Questions: 02

This us basically almost everything you have studied before with a little or more detail. Preparation of alkanes and benzene is not included.

ALKANES: 
• Point (a) is covered on page 146
• Point (b) is covered on pages 147 - 148

ALKENES:
• Point (a) is covered on pages 149 - 150
• Point (b) is covered on pages 152 - 156. Leave the topics not mentioned in the syllabus.

BENZENE:
For this chapter, first revise Jim Clarke's A-2 notes for Benzene.
• Point (a) is covered on pages 173 - 178
• Point (b) is covered on pages 181 - 186. Just to stay on the safe side, go through all of the reactions of benzene.

3. ALKYL HALIDES
Chapter # 10
Questions: 02

• For point (a) refer to the KIPS book
• Point (b) is covered in pages 198 - 203

4. ALCOHOL & PHENOLS
Chapter # 11
Questions: 04

ALCOHOLS

• Point (a) is covered on page212
• Point (b) is covered on page 215
• Point (c) is covered on page 216 - 218

PHENOLS

Revise Jim Clarke's notes for Phenols first.

• Point (a) is covered on pages 221 - 222. Although nitration is better explained in A levels.
• Point (b) is covered on page 220. Again Jim Clarke explains this better.

5. ALDEHYDES & KETONES
Chapter # 12
Questions: 03

This chapter is basically more or less the same as that in A'levels. The terms and names are like I said before, different.

• Point (a) is covered on pages 228 - 229
• Point (b) is covered on pages 230-232
• Point (c) (i) is in pages 232-234, 241
                   (ii) is in pages 242 -245
                  (iii) is in page 238 but in better explained in A'levels.

6. CARBOXYLLIC ACID
Chapter # 13
Questions: 03

Revise Jim Clarke's notes of Acyl Chrloide and Carboxyllic acus first. Also read from the A'levels Courses book.

• Point (a) is covered on pages 251 - 252
• Point (b) is covered on pages 254 - 256. The table of esters and their flavours is very important
• Point (c) and (d) are not in the book. Revise them from the A'levels chapter of 'Nitrogen Compounds'.

7. AMINO ACIDS
Chapter # 13
Questions: 06

For this chapter, there was a table of amino acids (apart from the one in the book on page 300) that I had. I got it from the KIPS academy during my test session. I would have posted the picture of it but I can't find it. I don't know if it is actually in the syllabus because I don't remember them asking about any other amino acid apart from the ones in the books. So even if you don't have the list of all the amino acids the table in the book is sufficient enough.

All the points are covered from pages 259 - 263.

8. MACROMOLECULES
Chapter # 14
Questions: 06

You have to do the ENTIRE chapter for this.

9. ENVIRONMENTAL CHEMISTRY
Chapter # 16
Questions: 02

• Point (a) is covered on pages 312 - 316
• Point (b) is covered on pages 316 - 319
• Point (c) is covered on pages 310 - 311


BIOLOGY PART II
Expected time: 10 days

Part II Biology isn't very long and it is pretty easy. You should be done with it quickly. A few chapters are just entirely new.

6. HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY

(c) Excretion And Osmoregulation
Chapter # 5
Questions: 05

The chapter of osmoregulation we studied in A'levels was A LOT more detailed, so it would do you good to revise it.

• The first point is covered on page 10 - 14
• The second point is covered on pages 15-16
• The third point is covered on pages 1-2, 6-8. Yes, the urea cycle is important too.

(d) Nervous System
Chapter # 15
Questions: 04

• The first point is covered on page 67
• The second point is covered on pages 68-69.
• The third point is covered on pages 70-71
• The fourth point is covered on pages 60-61
• The fifth point is covered on page 71
• The sixth point is covered on page 55

(e) Reproduction
Chapter # 18
Questions: 05

This chapter is a lot smaller than the detailed one we studied in our A'levels.

(f) Support and Movement
Chapter # 16
Questions: 05

This is a relatively new chapter and it might take you a little time to get the concepts. For better understanding of the sarcomere, you can always refer to the diagrams in A'levels book. And you can watch animations online for the Sliding filament theory.

Ell the points are covered from pages 31-35, and then pages 38-43

(g) Hormonal Control
Chapter # 17
Questions: 04

For this chapter, learn all the text from page 72-78

8. BIOTECHNOLOGY
Chapter # 23
Questions: 05

This chapter is nothing compared to the one we studied in A'levels. You should find it very easy. Learn everything from pages 202-207 and then from pages 212-216

9. ECOSYSTEM
Chapter # 25, # 27
Questions: 05

This is a pretty general knowledge, fun topic. The whole of Chapter 25 is included except the Nitrogen cycle. From chapter 27, pages 269-276 is included.

10. EVOLUTION & GENETICS
Chapter # 22 & # 24
Questions: 05

I did not like this chapter very much.

• Point (a) is covered on page 225 - 226
• Point (b) is covered on page 227-228
• Point (c) is covered on page 186, 192-196
• Point (d) is covered on pages 173-177

That ends the entire MCAT syllabus. If you study hard enough you should be done by the end of July.

I hope the guides were helpful. As you can see, it is NOT hard or impossible. Just needs a little focus and time. So give it your all for 3 months and hopefully Insha Allah, make a bright medical career ahead of you. Good luck!

    1. I didn't use any guide book. But cor mcq practice, you can get a lot of books. The best one i had was MCAT by Caravan publishers. It had a lot of mcqs and it had A'level mcqs too.
      Other than that book you can buy any book. Oh, and of course the KIPS KETS books are helpful

  3. I loved reading your blog even tho Im a FSc student, who shifted to FSc from Cambridge because of those aunties :"(

    1. Thank you :)
      & No, no. Just stick to the syllabus. I mentioned that in the first guide. No need to cram the whole book. They won't ask you out of syllabus questions.
      As for the federal textbooks, I'm not sure how they're different from the Punjab textbooks. These guides were made for the Punjab textbooks so i would recommend them. I really have no idea what the federal textbooks are like. I was an A'level student so my knowledge of FSC was strictly restricted to MCAT only. :/

  4. Salam. Thankyou for these informative blogs. They certainly help a lot. I want to ask a few things:
    Where is Lamarcks theory in the bio book? Can you specify the page if possible? Also, what about chaptwr 20 and 21 of bio book 12? Should I skip them as you didn't mention them anywhere? Also I have to read the entire mitosis and meiosis eventhough they aren't really mentioned in the learning objectives?
    Please pray that I get into K.E :)

    1. Lamarck's theory is the Inheritance of acquired characteristics theory on page 225 in Bio Book II.
      Chapter 20 is not included. Skip it.
      Chapter 21 is included. All of it. I did mention it under the 'Cell' Chapter in the Part I guide in my last blogpost! The whole of that chapter is VERY important, as in the whole of mitosis and meiosis.
      And Insha Allah. Study hard :)

    1. I really don't remember any question in particular. But nothing come out of syllabus, and definitely not out of the textbook. There were a few out of syllabus questions in our paper, that's true. But not out of the textbook. If i wasn't able to identify it, I probably must have left it to avoid the negative marking. You can't know the answer to every single question.

  6. I'm having trouble in the chapter Support and Movement in bio. Because I'm not used to rote learning, thus I am unable to learn the names of all those bones. Is it necessary to learn them?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Haha. You have to learn the bones when you enter Medical too. So yeah, you can't just skip on it. It's not a hard chapter. If you're having trouble just memorizing the names, you can use a human Atlas online and see where those bones actually are so the visualization might help you memorize it. But yeah, don't skip on them!
      Just so you know, Medical has a lot of learning. A lot of names that you have to cram. So yeah, be prepared :p

  8. Can i do organic chemistry from kips KETS book only?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. NO. Not at all. Don't even think about it. There is no shortcut to the MCAT. You have to absolutely cover the syllabus from the FSC book. DO NOT use the KETS book for the syllabus. Use it only to practice questions or cover information that is in the syllabus but not covered in the book.

      Delete
  9. Do you have the name for the FSC textbooks? I am an American student, a little lost at what to look over at the moment. Your guides are wonderful! I just don't have those textbooks, but might be able to find them if I have the names? Please provide that information! Thank you :]

  10. Hey! Do we need the AS equivalency for our MCAT documents as well? Or is the O level equivalency enough for the registration? I asked you this before as well. Hope to hear soon.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Since the A'level result comes out later than the registration for MCAT and the equivalence process takes time, you are not required to submit your A'levels or AS grades for ths MCAT regiatration. You need that after the MCAT is done and you're applying in the colleges. For now, you only need a Hope Certificate for your Alevels and your Olevels equivalence. That's how the system worked last year. You can get it confirmed from the UHS office or an Academy just in case.

  14. Hey

    Do we need to study mechanisms for organic chem reactions? It is only mentioned with 2 reactions in syllabus but not with the others.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If it's not mentioned then don't do it. But i don't get what mechanisms you're talking about.

      Delete
    2. it is written in the syllabus: nitration including mechanism and esterification, so i will have to study all the steps of nitration but for esterification, only the final equation will be sufficient. right??

      Delete
    3. That's what the syllabus means but what's the harm in going through the steps of esterification too? That point in the syllabus is a bit vague so stay on the safe side an go through the steps of esterification as well. They're not hard as far as i remember. You've done it in Alevels.

    1. The guidebooks and Kips dont always follow the syllabus but the MCAT will or atleast it always has except one or two MCQs. Focus on the syllabus and once you're confident about it you can, if you have time, do other things out of the syllabus that you think are important just for your own satisfaction but they wont ask anything out of syllabus. Your main focus should be the syllabus.

  31. How to decide that what figures are important and must be remembered? For example there are tables(such as in Part-II Chemistry Book Page#11) mentioning values of hydration energy. So are we supposed to learn every single values.

    2. Hi,
      Thank you so much for responding.I read your post again and also the new updated 2017 syllabus.While analyzing syllabus I observed that formulas are given in the syllabus.I don't really have an idea how they used to be in 2015...So please guide me that are we supposed to just remember those formulas or it's better(to be on safe side) to remember every single formula relating the relevant topic and is examiner bound to set paper only on these...
      further you mentioned that some values which are basically rata are to be learned whereas no indication of something like"recall,remember..." is given so isn't it out of syllabus??

      Lastly in your part one guide you said that prefix table in physics you said it's very important but in syllabus only between tera and pico are required so should we stick to syllabus at this micro level so should we go an extra bit while preparing.(Only only for this part but from a general point of view)

    3. ★ Learn the formulas given in the syllabus only and learn how to apply them as well. As for other formulas, from my experience they never ask them. But if you still want to stay on the safe side, you can learn them but no need to know how to apply them or go into too many details.
      ★ Some values ARE ratta even if the syllabus doesn't use the exact words of 'remember/recall/learn' you need to cover the relevant figures that are included in a particular topic of the syllabus.
      ★ Just do the values between tera and pico. Stick to the syllabus.

  32. Is it a good idea to prepare theory from kips books. Actually I was looking through them and found that sometimes it's easy to study through mainly due to better representation of data(as tables rather than mere text).Kidly discuss this in detail covering both pros and cons
    Thanks

    1. NOT. AT. ALL.
      Don't even THINK about doing the syllabus from the KIPs books if you're actually serious about MDCAT.

    2. Although I am using textbooks but will you please elaborate why?...I mean at the end of the day aren't we supposed to cover the given topics in syllabus irrespective of from where we cover as we used to do in O&A Level.

    3. The syllabus is NOT covered in the KIPS books. There's just a short outline/summary of the topics. I don't know if they've changed their books in the last 2 years but the ones I had were useless. Only the question bank is helpful.

      This isn't O'levels or A'levels, you should remember that. Not everything is clear-cut and fair in this system. Stick to the FSC books if you're serious. Also there's not a lot of time left, so you'll have to work twice as hard and fast if you're still considering the KIPS textbooks.

    4. Ok got it. Thanks for being so responsive.
      Sorry to bother you again and again but I've another question for you:-
      How important is it to do all(or some of) the test at kips. I mean that if you only stick to course and then MDCAT Past Papers(majorly due to shortage of time) how much it can effect my results.Can I still hope for good outcome without these tests/FLPs.

    5. Hmm... it's a risky move but if you don't have time, then there isn't much you can do. Past MCAT papers are the most reliable past paper question source but they're limited so you can only practice too much. With KIPs tests you can practice and master the syllabus much more better.
