What is PRT - Weekly Method?
The PRT - Weekly Method simplifies your preparation by breaking it down into manageable tasks. It ensures that you're not just passively preparing but actively engaging with the material. This approach is a psychological booster, creating a predictable and structured study pattern that can help keep stress at bay. Goal is to incrementally increase your score by 50 or more and get as closer to 960 as possible, methodically.
Implementing the PRT - Weekly Method
1. Preparation (P) - The Core
Devote 80% of your weekly study time to thoroughly preparing one subject. This deep dive into the material should include completing tasks, and tackling question banks. Make self-notes for a quick review or annotate workbook hard copies if you're short on time. By concentrating on one subject at a time, you ensure a robust understanding and long-term retention. Check the weightage of the subjects and you should cover at least 14 questions or 56 marks during this time.
Motivation Tip: Visualize each study session as a building block towards your dream career. Mastery over one topic at a time will build the confidence you need for the exam and avoid silly mistakes.
2. Revision (R) - The Catalyst
Use the remaining 20% of your time to revise a previously studied subject. Quickly go through your notes or workbooks and revisit the questions you bookmarked. This process solidifies your knowledge and helps transition information from short-term to long-term memory.
Motivation Tip: Successful students revise at lease 3 times. Each revision session is an opportunity to sharpen your recall and readiness for the exam. Only way you can remember things longer is by frequent revisions. Make and use topic based notes/workbooks.
3. Testing (T) - The Benchmark
At the end of each week, take a National Grand Mock Test. Allocate 3 hours for the test itself and an additional 2-3 hours for analysis and review. Focus on questions from the subjects you've recently covered. But attempt/read all questions to get familiar with type of questions asked in other subjects so you can prepare smartly when you get to those subjects. Watching your scores improve in these areas will be a clear indicator of your progress.
Motivation Tip: Each mock test is a rehearsal for the real deal. Use it to gauge your preparation and to adjust your study plan accordingly. Donít compare yourself with others in early stages, some have prepared for much longer time than yours. But you can catchup.
Starting with Easy Subjects
Kick off your study plan with subjects you're more comfortable with. This strategy will help you gain momentum and build a solid base of confidence. Once you're consistently scoring above 500 in these areas, you can move on to the more challenging subjects with a strong foundation behind you. If you are already scoring over 500, you should focus more on the analysis of your performance and fill the gaps and work on your weaknesses.
Motivation Tip: Early successes in easier subjects can be incredibly motivating. Let these victories spur you on as you approach more complex material. Remember 4 marks is 4 marks whether you get them from easier subjects or difficult ones. Avoid making silly mistakes in easy subjects by taking them seriously.
The PRT - Weekly Method is a balanced study approach that ensures you're not just working hard, but also working smart. It's about comprehensive coverage, consistent revision, and regular self-assessment. By adopting this method, you're training yourself to be disciplined and focused, which are essential traits for any aspiring dentist.
As you embark on this journey, remember that it's a marathon, not a sprint. The PRT - Weekly Method is your guide to pacing yourself effectively. It's a commitment to your future self, ensuring that when you look back, you can do so with pride, knowing that you gave it your all.
