NEET 2017 is highly competitive exam wherein more than 7 Lacs+ students compete for just 50,000 medical seats. Out of the available medical seats, only 50% are in government medical colleges. Further 50% is for the Quota category. Accordingly, if you did not get a government medical seat in NEET 2017 via merit, your next option is to take an expensive private medical college seat. However, if your budget is in the range of Rs. 15 to 40 Lacs, it is better to look for overseas MBBS programs. MCI (Medical Council of India) provides the last option of MBBS abroad. NEET 2017 SEAT RESERVATION / QUOTA RULES: Seat reservation for different categories is as follows:

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:
Revising chapter multiple times will help you to remember better, so revision is a must. Start revising with the most important chapter and then go accordingly. Try to cover the whole syllabus to score well.
It’s very important to solve test papers. The previous year’s question papers and take an online mock test to get a clear idea about question pattern. It also gives you a better idea about your strength and weakness. Testing yourself will surely prepare you to get ready for the final battle.
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.
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.
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.
The Mobile phone can distract you when you studying. It is very important to switch it off while you are concentrating on your revision.
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.
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.
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. Stay positive and believe in yourself.
