Tips To Survive The MIR Exam

Follow These 6 Tips And You Will Survive The Mir Exam

The final countdown for the thousands of candidates that will be submitted to the MIR exam has begun. In the absence of six short weeks the nerves are close to the surface. Therefore, it is necessary that during these dates the concentration is the basis of any opponent, on which to work. However, many times we think that just by studying we will succeed in the exam, but it is not quite like that. 

In this sense, Claudio Rivadulla Varela, tutor of Grupo CTO, compiles six basic tips that a candidate to the MIR exam must knowso as not to lose concentration during the five hours the exam lasts. "As in the daily work, in such an extensive test we must establish breaks, since it is demonstrated that the human mind loses concentration capacity after 30-45 minutes," says Rivadulla, who explains that "the ideal is to systematize these breaks, that is, not constantly thinking about the idea of "resting" by obligation, since with that we decentralize; It has to be an automatism.” 

But when should we rest? That decision, explains the tutor of CTO, "is more personal”, although if he were "I would make a small stop every 50-100 questions answered". "This stop should be like a stop in 'boxes' to replace both liquids and sugar, as this is the fuel of our brain," he says.

Throughout the 235 questions that the MIR exam picks up next February 10, there are sure to be several that choke at first. In those cases, in order not to diminish concentration, "we must mark them and continue with confidence and humility, since losing too much time in them increases our stress and we would be in a loop from which it would not be difficult to leave". 

His third piece of advice refers to the basic tools that the MIR candidate should take to the exam. In addition to a pen (or two), Claudio Rivadulla advises "to equip yourself with a bottle of water, some food to regain strength, and a watchif we want to keep time controlled.” 

The Desire to Work

The motivation with which you face the exam is essential to achieve the desired success. Precisely his fourth council is about the "desire to work". "Many opponents go to the exam thinking" to see if it ends soon "," what laziness ", and even" I sure do not get it right ". This is totally counterproductive, given that this attitude eliminates our concentration and leads to a sure failure, "he stresses. 

To solve this syndrome it is best to "take it as a simulacrum", but "what gives you an extra is to go to the exam with the greatest energyand a huge desire to shine; Self-confidence is part of success.” 

Statistics of Answers

During those more than five hours of examination the doubts for each one of the marked answers will invade the student. In those cases, Rivadulla recommends responding to the maximum number of questions and taking risks. "The questions of the current calls have four answers; if we hesitate between 2 or 3, we should take a risk since the possibilities of aacierto are considerable (50 and 33 percent, respectively), reveals. 

Even the coach of MIR in CTO goes further: "When we could not rule out any response, we could answer without losing many points, of every 4 doubts questions, in order to answer a good we will have balanced the failure-success ratio ". 

Applying the opponent's tools is fundamental in this test type test. According to Rivadulla "it is very important to apply the examination techniques learned during the preparation, and that will make us score points without having to know the correct answer by pure knowledge". 

His sixth and final advice is focused on the total number of questions that the MIR candidate must answer in the exam, in case of doubts. In his opinion "more than 10 questions should not be left blank". 

"The number of unanswered questions will depend on two fundamental things: the first, of our objective. That is, if the place we fight for demands many points, we should leave as little as possible without answering, because whoever does not risk does not win. Secondly, it will all depend on how prepared we are to respond, “Says Rivadulla. 

Finally, the MIR tutor concludes by classifying the two types of candidates that will be submitted to the exam: "If you have prepared the MIR in the last three months, it is almost certain that you will answer all you will lose more than if you left a few blank; However, if you have worked from the beginning and the drills have gone well, in the final exam the same should happen ".
