It is an honour for me to clear the aptitude test of Aga Khan University.The aptitude test of AKU was the most lengthy and technical test I had ever seen.The tactics of this test are totally different from other entrance tests.I have cleared NET and UHS test also but AKU test was totally different. Now here are some suggestions for you ,based on my observation, to help you prepare for this test.There are 150 MCQs to be solved in approx. 4 hours.That sounds very easy but believe me I had left 20 unsolved because questions were so lengthy.But thank God I still cleared the test.The questions asked generally are very easy and conceptual but a very lengthy statement and diagram comprising of a single  page makes you feel giddy.

Don't get fidgety in the test. Mostly I observed that the answer was hidden in the question itself.You just need to grasp the answer from the question but it happens only when you are having a good ''glucose level'' in the blood.Don't loose confidence at any question.You can erase your pencil-filled bubble on answer sheet and can make correction as many times as you like.Plus there is no negative marking. Now I will discuss each section separately .


Physics was the most difficult part for me to solve.There are diagrams with each question.But one thing I observed was that the concept used in the diagrams was same as used in the F.sc textbook but the figure was different.So I would advise you to practice all the diagrams of book and try to understand the concept behind them.The circuit diagrams are most important.Don't forget to learn the concept and exceptions given in the last paragraphs of every topic.Most of the question were taken from second year book,so revise that carefully.


The chemistry portion was very easy.There were no questions based on concept. Mostly the questions were taken from Organic Chemistry.The equations were given as it is in the book and we were asked to tell the product.So if you are good at Organic part then this section will be ''Halwaa'' for you.From inorganic part the questions were just like Fill-in-the blanks.So you need to ''cram'' the book lines for that part.  


This section was very easy but also twisting.Students mostly try to ''Cram'' biology,that’s not bad but for this test you also need some common sense.It was the most comprehensive part because a single mcq was made to test the understanding of all the topic.For example four tables were given containing the names of Sexually transmitted diseases,their vectors and symptoms.So if you know all of them then you can choose an accurate one,otherwise you are going to mix all the topic there.given and we were asked to label the missing part in 
the form of MCQ.


The English section was the most important and lengthy one .There is no book I would prefer to you for preparing English.But one thing that I found very helping was my daily routine of reading English newspaper.I used to carefully study a single page of Dawn newspaper in the vacation and holidays and this helped me to get through this section.  Get the Sunday issue of any newspaper{English} and start reading one page daily in your free time.But remember that don't read carelessly.If you didn't read carefully pondering on every word of it,then you are merely wasting your time. My English grammar was very poor but after reading English newspaper for 6-7 months I improved a lot.

Science and Math Reasoning

This portion simply tests you IQ level.So you do not need to worry about it.I would advise you to eat ten almonds{badaam} daily and drink milk as much as you can. At the end, don't forget to take a Kit Kat chocolate with you because four and half hours is hell lot of time and AKU admins are not going to give you anything to eat.That offends.If you still have any queries,then your questions will be 
greatly welcome
