NEET is the most recommended pathway to the best medical institutions for all students intending to pursue their professional path in medicine (National Eligibility cum Entrance Test).
Because they are the best, these institutes have a limited number of seats. This complicates the competition and puts a lot of strain on the participants.
Students who are taking the exam should have a plan in place to help them pass. Below are some pointers and suggestions to assist you.
- Recognize the pattern.
Before you begin the learning process, make sure you are familiar with the syllabus and question structure. There are a total of 180 questions separated into three sections: biology, chemistry, and physics. Biology has 90 questions, physics has 45 questions, and chemistry has 45 questions.
There are 720 total marks available, which are subsequently divided into three categories. Biology received 360 points, chemistry received 180, and physics received 180. Keep in mind that there is a negative marking, for each correct response, you receive four points, and for each incorrect answer, one point is deducted.
- Prepare a schedule.
Once you've created a schedule, you'll be more likely to pursue your goal. It is recommended that a student prepares for the NEET study for 12 hours every day.
Sort your themes into three groups. Make a green mark for your strongest suit, a red mark for your weakest, and a yellow mark for the ones you're not sure about. Determine when you are most productive and assign the red part to those hours.
- Clear your concepts.
The most basic and important element that most students inadvertently overlook is idea clarification. Cramming the concepts will do nothing but cause havoc during the exam. Biology has the highest grade point average, so make it a priority. Make the most of your time and evenly distribute the rest.
Rewrite all the equations and formulas again and again. They are one of those few little things that are sometimes overlooked. Don't try to memorize everything in the hopes of remembering it all during the exam. It's never going to work. Instead, practice the principles until you're confident using them.
- Make notes.
Triton’s and institutions might help clear your basics and foundation but you must never forget to make your own notes. When you customize your notes, it will be easier to remember what you've learned. Make your notes next to the topic in the textbook so that you can quickly return to the page. Taking notes can assist you in not only revising but also learning the concept. Don't overlook the diagrams, flowcharts, graphs, and tables.
- NCERT syllabus is important.
Can’t stress enough, NCERT should be the priority. Read and understand NCERT thoroughly. Start your preparation with NCERT and then move on to reference books when your concepts are clear. Mark all the points that you believe are important and might need a revision. Most of the questions asked are from NCERT, never miss the exercises at the end of each topic.
Once you've mastered the fundamental principles, go on to reference books.Use the NCERT and reference books to practice all of the concepts you've learned. Extensive practice will ensure that your ideas are crystal clear. Make a separate list of all the common errors so you can pay special attention to them.
Candidates also should practice using the OMR sheet. There have been cases where the answers have been correct, but in a hurry, the student filled the wrong dot.
- Solve last years’ papers and Mock tests.
It is recommended that a student spend at least 2 hours practicing the previous year's question papers continuously. This will familiarize you with the examination technique and protocols. Keep track of your results so you can see how far you've come toward your objective.
A few papers, such as the NEET 2018 Question Paper and the NEET 2019 question paper, as well as mock exams, are available on Google.
- Clear your doubts.
Because NEET concentrates on the fundamentals, skipping a section that appears difficult is never an option. Write down your doubts as many times as possible; this is a really effective learning strategy. Seek help as soon as possible if your learning is being disrupted by doubts. Keep in mind that uncertainties are an indication of a healthy learning environment.
- Focus on your health.
Although the intense pressure can be intimidating, you should not let this deter you from prioritizing your health. A sufficient quantity of sleep and rest is required for optimal results. It's important to remember that a balanced diet equals a healthy mind. Getting some fresh air, going for a walk, or changing your surroundings can help you stay on track.
To retain all the learned concepts, never forget to revise everything. All the notes you made, concepts marked in red or yellow, diagrams, equations, and the questions attempted wrong should be revised extensively.
Revision helps keep the topic fresh in the moments before your exam. All the hard work will be for nothing if you do not revise everything thoroughly and extensively. All the 11th and 12th-grades are not to be ignored, those hold utmost importance.
Never let your fear of failure keep you from achieving your goals. Always have faith in yourself, and keep in mind that failure is an inevitable part of success.
You’ll get it on the second try if you don't get it the first time.
The process is different for everyone, some might grasp it in one go, others might take a day for the same. The results will hence be different for them.
Choose the path that is most suited for you.
