study material for neet? Is boards preparation enough?
abdul nazir

Hi Maulishree, Study materials in the form of practise papers are available in pdf format in different languages along with answer key from the link here. If you are a science stream student, then boards preparation can be helpful but when it comes to NEET it is not enough as the level of competition is quite high. Apart from boards, prepare using mock tests, practise papers and previous year papers as well to score more.
