Tips to Pass the MedTech Board Exam

Do you want some tips to help you pass the MedTech exam?

Without a doubt, passing the Medical Technologist Licensure Exam requires tons of preparation, hard work, persistence, and determination. You will surely do your part. You will study long hours, read a lot of books, and answer hundreds of pages of reviewers. But do you want to hear useful tips, this time straight from those who already passed the Medical Technology boards?

Here’s our collection of the best insights and tips to help you ace the exam! The first two (2) useful tips below were sourced from InkedPatata, a blog by a MedTech exam passer who’s now a proud RMT (Registered Medical Technologist)!

Tip #1: Make a wise decision regarding enrolling in a review center.

Know your capabilities — if you think you can do self-review diligently and effectively, then no need to enroll in a review center. If you’re highly motivated, have access to ample useful resources, and determined to pass, then you’re already good to go!

But if you think you need additional assistance, support, and guidance, choose to enroll in a review center. At the end of the day, it’s gonna be you — not the review center — who can ensure that you will pass the MedTech exam.

Tip #2: Trust your instincts regarding the correct answer.

There will be questions in the RMT exam that you’ll feel like there are multiple answers — or worse, no correct answer! — from the multiple choice answers. That will surely happen. Go with your gut feel and trust your instincts that the first answer that got to your head is likely the correct answer. Tiwala lang.

Specific tips regarding the exam topics:

Microbiology and Parasitology – Apollon and Albas were our main references and some questions appeared in the exam but asked in a different way. The questions may appear confusing at first so, analyze, analyze, analyze! Bailey’s and Scott are helpful here as well.

Hematology – There were several trick questions here but do not overthink. If possible, do not change your answer anymore and go with your gut feel. Hubbard is a helpful resource here.

Blood Banking and Serology – For most Medtech exam takers, this section appears to be the most difficult. It seems like they are using this section to weed out possible RMT passers from failers! So study this really well, review, and study this again!

The additional three (3) tips below are supposedly useful if the Medical Technologist Exam when is just a few days away. We compiled these from MedTek.ph. Hope this helps!

Tip #3: Go through all your notes for the first batch of exams.

Specifically, this is for Clinical Chemistry, Microbiology & Parasitology, and Clinical Microscopy. Do not re-read all your books because at this point, that would only overwhelm you. Just stick to your notes.

Tip #4: Never underestimate the recall questions.

These are the questions that usually pop up on the tests every year. If you’ve attended review centers, you probably have a list of them. If you’re self-studying, you can always ask your professors, board passers, or batchmates who went to review centers.

Tip #5: Stop the all-nighter review.

You’ve done it for months now. This is the time to give your body a break. It will be difficult to cram additional voluminous information in just 1 or 2 days so take a break, rest, and hope for the best!

PRC Room Assignments: MedTech Exam (Mar 2020)

If you see a “Now Available!” note beside the exam venue, it means the PRC already released the list for that province or city and you may now view the room assignment. If it is not yet available, the PRC is still finalizing the school and classroom details. We will update this post once the official Room Assignments are released.

Here are additional useful tips we suggest you follow before the exam.

1. You’ll notice that even in just one school, several buildings and classrooms will be used as testing centers. To make sure that you proceed to the correct location, write down and take note of the exact Building, Classroom, and Seat Number assigned to you.

2. Before the day of the board exam, find out the address of the school or venue where you’ll be taking the exam. Research the actual location using Google Maps or a guide map to determine how to get there.

3. Better yet, try visiting the venue a few days before the board exam! Doing so will help you discover the best transportation or routes to take. If you simulate going to the venue beforehand, you’ll also have an idea how long it will take you to reach the exam center from your place. This allows you to change your transportation plans, if needed.

4. On the day of the exam, don’t be late! According to the PRC, examinees who will be late will NOT BE ALLOWED to take the board exam. We suggest you arrive at the exam venue at least one (1) hour before the start of the exam. This gives you enough time to locate the building, classroom, and seat number assigned to you.

What happens if you did not show up or weren’t able to take the boards? The answer is in this article: I registered but I did not take the board exam.
