NEET Medical Entrance Exam Entrance Exams - Preparation Tips.

NEET 2017 Preparation Tips:

  • Cover all the topics in the syllabus, without missing even a single chapter. Keep revising all lessons at regular intervals of time.
  • Develop a strong base in fundamental subjects such as Biology, Chemistry, and Physics.
  • First of all, finish your NCERT books, as they will help in creating your base. Try to cover the entire 11th and 12th NCERT syllabus for your exam.
  • Try solving previous year papers. This will give you an idea about the type and format of NEET exam.
  • Try to bifurcate your time equally among all subjects. Instead of focusing on a single subject, try to prepare all subjects in a methodical manner. Decide a time limit and try to finish all your subjects before that time.
  • Keep practicing unless you perfectly answer all questions while solving practice tests, mock tests or previous year’s papers. Analyze where you make mistakes, and try to avoid them the next time.

During the exam.

  • There are 200 questions in the NEET exam, and you have to complete all of them in 180 minutes. So, if you find any question difficult, do not waste 2-3 minutes on it. Understand that missed questions are a routine part of any examination. Also, you should not panic if you missed some.
  • Speed during the exam matters a lot. Hence, try to complete your test at least 5-10 minutes before the time limit. This will give you some time to revise the paper and answer any questions that you missed due to hurry. Thoroughly, go through your paper before submitting it to the invigilator.
  • Another important thing you need to keep in mind is negative marking done in NEET exam. For each wrong answer, they deduct 1/3rd of your total mark. So, it is better to no answer the question, rather than answering it wrong.

Psychological tips.

  • While preparing for the NEET exam, try to keep your mind free of tension and confusion. Try to practice with a positive frame of mind and a positive attitude. Confidence is the first step to success.
  • Try to keep some free time for yourself so that you can relax your mind and refresh your mood. This will significantly help in increasing your learning ability.
  • Do not disturb your sleep cycle to make up for the lost time. This will do nothing good, but will not upset your entire body clock. So, do not deprive your body of the relaxation content it needs to have.
  • Never lose heart. The final NEET paper may not match up to your preparations. Do not decide to just give up. Invest all your energy and acumen to make most out of it.

Last minute tips:

Prepare a time table for yourself.

As already said NEET is hard to crack, so you have to put in that extra effort. Making a timetable will make it easy for you to prepare better. Plan things like:

  • when to study.
  • what to study.
  • which topics are important.
  • most importantly when to eat.
  • sleep to de-stress yourself.

Revision for NEET exam

Avoid starting any new topics.

If you are not ready with any topic, avoid starting something new at the last moment. It will cause more confusion. So it’s better to revise and focus topics on which you are confident.

Don’t miss out important topics.

Biology carries 50 percent marks, therefore spend more time on revising it. So revise important topics like anatomy, morphology, diagrams, scientist and their achievements. For the subject of Physics, make sure to prepare formulae, measurement, physical law and application of physics in technology. For Chemistry the formulae of important chemicals, physical chemicals, chemical composition to be ready. Furthermore, the reaction, minerals combination law, abstraction of atoms, molecules and atom masses needs to be ready for revising.

Avoid comparison.

Always remember every student’s merit is not the same. It is better to improve your own preparation and concentrate on that. Comparison demotivates you. So avoid asking your friends about their preparation.

Your mobile phone distracts you.

The Mobile phone can distract you when you studying. It is very important to switch it off while you are concentrating on your revision.

Watch Television.

To update your knowledge about current affairs, watch news channel for at least an hour a day. This will help you to take a break from study and increase your general knowledge too.

Study smart, not hard.

Finally, when exams are just around the corner, choose the smart way to study. Summaries important points. Reading the whole book will be wastage time. Don’t study for 24hrs, study 8-12 hrs and put 110% within that time. Writing once is equal to reading 5 times. So write when you are revising. Adopt the smart way to save time and energy and also prepare better.

Relax during preparation.

Stress is killing. The expectations from you are too big to handle. But you need to relax and try not to think too much about this aspect. Study hard but do give break to yourself. Moreover, by not focusing on imbalanced diet and lesser sleep will make you fall sick. Avoid junk food for a year. It is important to eat home cooked food to keep yourself healthy.
