TIPS (Test to Inspire the Pre-Professionals) is an integrity program for students with an objective of supporting the medical/engineering aspirants to approach highly competitive professional exams without fear and stress as well as to foster their self-confidence and know the model and method of the exams. It was introduced in India by MSM Kerala and extended to various Gulf countries in partnership with Focus International.

TIPS model entrance examination provides a rare opportunity for those studying in the Gulf states. It was well accepted and highly appreciated by parents, students and teachers, the organizers said in a press statement. It follows the same pattern as of the main entrance examinations conducted in both All India and state levels with OMR answer sheets and centralized evaluation system. This year Focus Saudi has introduced separate question paper for those students who completed grade 11. This is introduced due to the continuous requests from parents in the previous years for their children to familiarize with the system and start preparation in advance along with their regular studies.
