General Preparation Tips

Here are a few tips for students appearing for the exam this year:

Know the Syllabus

The first step to prepare for any exam is to find out the prescribed syllabus. Check out the official website for the exam syllabus for NEET and prepare accordingly.

Smart Study

For effective preparation, you need to study smartly.

  • Identify your strong and weak points.
  • Prioritize in such a manner that your strong areas become stronger and leave ample time to work on your weak areas.
  • Don’t leave any topic untouched.

Tick Tock: Time Management

The exam syllabus is vast, but time is limited.

  • Make a timetable and stick to it fervently.
  • Give more time to your weaker areas and the ones that have higher weightage in the exam.
  • Give as many mock tests as you can; it will help you a lot.

Practice

“Knowledge is of no use until you put it to practice”. You might be thorough with the syllabus, but it is all for nothing if you don’t practice.

  • Grab hold of as many sample papers as you can and solve them regularly.
  • Time yourself. It helps in dealing with exam pressure.

Health is Wealth

Long hours of study can take a toll on your health. Remember, if you neglect your body, your exam will have no success story.

  • Increase your intake of greens, juices and fiber.
  • Avoid oily and spicy food.
  • can do some simple eye and neck exercises to avoid strain.

Kit Kat Breaks

Long and strenuous study hours lead to fatigue which hampers our cognitive abilities.

  • Taking short breaks is essential for the brain to retain information.
  • Get up and walk around after every 1 hour to improve blood circulation.   

Set realistic goals

Creating a study schedule that requires you to study for 4 hours at a stretch is just cruel and unhealthy. Analyze your potential and attention span to set realistic goals for yourself. Reward yourself with your favourite dish or an episode of your favourite TV show.

Too many cooks spoil the broth

The exam may require you to refer to help books. However, too many of them might confuse you.

  • Every author has a different way of explaining concepts and there’s a good chance that contradictions will emerge.
  • Apart from that, choose 1 or 2 books that will strengthen your weak points.
  • NCERT should be your primary source of information.

Stay motivated

It is easy to lose focus and get demotivated while preparing for NEET and that can hamper your preparation severely.

  • Read interviews of previous years’ toppers and try to imbibe their study routine.
  • Browse the internet for inspirational quotes. T
  • alking to your friends goes a long way in staying motivated. Have faith in yourself.

History repeats itself

There’s a good chance that you’ll see some topics and questions being repeatedly asked in the exam.

  • Go through the previous years’ question papers to get an idea of the type of questions asked in NEET.
  • Identify the patterns and study accordingly.

Don’t cram. Understand and learn the concepts for a better grip over the exam.
