I reached out to an old friend, who got a perfect score on his MCAT in undergrad. I asked him what his secret was..
..He then told me about the importance of changing your mindset and changing your test taking strategy approach.
Instantly it became crystal clear to me how to stop wasting time to gain more knowledge on topics, because I already knew them. What I didn't have was the right mindset or proper test-taking strategies.
I realized it wasn't that I had a lack of knowledge or application. Instead, it happened to be something I never even thought about until I spoke with that old friend of mine.
My plan was to start getting serious about preparing for the boards 14 months before the NPTE..
So, I started studying the academic and application side of PT. I spent months learning about standardized exams and what influenced scores.
Everything that I found said how a non-traditional approach, including test taking strategies, endurance building, confidence & mindset training, are the keys to a high score on any standardized test.
But I didn't stop there...
I then spent the next year focusing on all of these factors and developing my own NPTE prep course for myself that included the knowledge, application, test-taking strategies, endurance, and mindset..
After that , I ended up getting a perfect 800 on the NPTE!
Bottom line: In the end, I was able to transform from failing literally every single standardized exam I took in the past, to achieving a perfect 800 score on the most important exam that stood in my way from becoming a physical therapist.
And that's when I decided I wanted to help PT students, just like me, pass the NPTE.
