IMAT 2022 Study Planner

The Official IMAT 2022 Study Planner   

Within this IMAT planner, we will lay the foundation and guidance you will need for the upcoming months of study for the IMAT 2022. This includes; explanations of given daily plans, topics and pages of study, as well as highlighting the most crucial topics and those which are unimportant. Moreover, explained will be the finest tips for studying, the best resources to use and the most useful exercises to follow.

The planner will be in direct, simple English- to allow for diversification. Remember the more you read, the better your language will become- so we encourage you to attempt to eagerly read and understand the guide as well as the books that accompany it. 

 

So, how will it go

The planner will be based on the Pearson IB Books, where the required syllabus chapters and pages will be given to you as a daily schedule, along with a checklist and the extra resources mentioned below. The study planner will be distributed over a time period of 10 weeks, studying 5 days a week, with an emphasis on rest for break days.  This is an estimated time frame, and according to one’s personal schedule- completion time will surely differ. 

 

Books  

The books recommended include Pearson’s Biology (A Global Approach), Pearson’s Chemistry (Higher Level), Cambridge AS-level and A-level Biology, and Barron’s SATs Subject Test books (Chemistry, Physics and Biology). SAT Maths for dummies, and Cambridge IGCSE Chemistry. They can be purchased or downloaded as soft copies online.

 

Anki

Anki uses a simple, yet effective technique for memorization called “Active Recall” through its flashcards. 

We recommend you research more about Active Recall, as it is a pivotal part of this planner and your studies.

To download Anki, please click here.

 

Alongside these resources, you will also be using Khan Academy and their SAT feature for Physics and Maths Practice.

For additional support, there will also be given youtube channels that cover mentioned topics as well as our Ultimate 2022 Course.

Previous IMAT and BMAT exam simulators will be mentioned as practice towards the completion of studies.

For the mentioned “Daily dose of general knowledge and logic”, please click here.

 

Please note that this planner will follow Pearson’s, Cambridge and Barron’s as the main methods of studying, the rest of the mentioned books are for revision following the completion of the syllabus.

 

If alongside or after your indulgence in this planner you would also enjoy some extra resources and help, please be sure to check out our exclusive 2022 Summer tutoring Classes, registrations close by the end of March, so reserve a seat before then!
