NEET 2020 Preparation Tips

NEET is among the toughest exams in the country as it is the single exam for medical admissions. Thus, there is extreme competition in the exam. Candidates who are not well-prepared for the exam cannot think of getting through it. Here are some of the tips to begin the NEEt exam preparation.

Know the Syllabus - NEET exam syllabus is vast and the candidates are advised to focus only on the prescribed topics. You cannot afford to waste your time on studying irrelevant topics. The detailed syllabus is available in the official notification.

Understand the Paper Pattern - After checking out the syllabus, understand the exam pattern. Candidates must be aware of the number of questions asked in each section,marking scheme, negative marking criteria, etc. This will help in knowing the exam better. You can also check out previous years’ papers to understand the exam pattern.

Get Good Study Material - A good study material has an important role in your performance in the exam. Checking the previous years’ qualifiers recommendations and experts advice will be good before buying any book. Make sure the language of the book is easy to understand. You can refer to NCERT books for clearing the basic concepts.

Time-Table for NEET - The time-table you will prepare for the NEET exam preparation must have time for studying all the subjects. Make a realistic time-table that can be followed daily. Follow the time-table strictly. Do keep breaks between study sessions. Some things to consider while studying are - make short notes (for formulas, derivations, important reactions, equations), set study goals, don;t sleep during study time.

Revise Regularly - Revision is the key for retaining what you have studied. If you will not revise, you will forget. So, revise everything you have studied during the day at the end of the day and revise what you have studied a day before. This will create a consistency. Revise from the short notes you have prepared.

Solve Previous Years’ Papers and Appear for Mock Tests - Previous years’ papers and mock tests are a must for any examination. They not only give an idea about the examination but also help in understanding the pattern. You can analyse your preparation level by appearing for mock tests and solving previous years’ question papers.

Stay Healthy - It is important to stay healthy while you are preparing for the exam. As cliche as it may sound, a healthy mind resides only in a healthy body. Thus, candidates must involve in a physical activity, eat healthy food, practice yoga and meditation, and get enough sleep.

We hope that the above points will help you in NEET preparation. We suggest not to ignore NCERT books and not to buy a lot of preparation books. Instead, you an get one reference book and buy solved sample papers for practice.
