What is NEET?

The NEET exam is a qualifying entrance exam introduced to offer admission to students in various Medical and Dental Colleges in India.

NEET 2020: Preparation tips

NEET is one of the toughest entrance exams in the country to crack. As this is the only entrance exam conducted for admission into medical colleges, a vast number of medical aspirants appear for the exam. To ace the exam, you need hard work and dedication, but that's not enough. You also have to develop a proper preparation plan so that it's easier to score well in the exam. The following tips can help you prepare for the exam in a better way.

Know and understand the syllabus thoroughly: Understanding the syllabus is the first step of your preparation strategy. You can also check some of the common chapters that were included in the board exam syllabus. You can skim through these chapters and spend extra time on the topics that are new to you. Some of the essential topics that you must focus for NEET 2020 are:

1. Optics, nuclear physics, mechanics, thermodynamics in physics
2. Mole concept, the periodic table, organic chemistry, chemical bonding, etc. in chemistry
3. Basics of biotechnology, physiology of plants & animals, genetics, morphology in biology

Invest in good study materials: Good study materials will help you to understand the concepts better and help you clear the exam with good scores. Therefore, it's essential to have the right NEET study materials while preparing for the exam. A good way to find them is to check out the interviews of high scorers and see which books they referred to during their preparation. You will also get tips and ideas about their strategies and preparation styles. You can also take the help of online NEET test series or free online mock tests for NEET to check how well you perform within the given time. You can check your scores and try to become better at it.

Stick to a strict timetable: With a good timetable, you will have enough time to prepare and revise for the exam. You can allot more or less time on the topics depending on the level of your understanding and how hard the concept is to grasp. A timetable will also allow you to allot specific time for free NEET mock tests online such as the ones offered by AspireBuzz and get them evaluated. Here are some necessary steps to help you prepare a time table.

1. Get a calendar and diary
2. Set your priorities
3. Schedule your study hours
4. Set time for sleep and rest

Go through the sample and previous year question papers: Managing time to attend all the questions you can answer is a tough challenge in entrance exams. Therefore, practice is the key to scoring high in the NEET exam. You will have to attend 180 questions within a time duration of 3 hours in the real exam. So, practising the sample question papers will help you find your shortcomings as well as improve your speed and accuracy. Solving these question papers will provide you a good idea about the question pattern, difficulty level of questions, and question weightage in the exam.

Make your own notes: Making notes of essential concepts while studying will help you to remember them better. You can use the notes later for revision a few days before the exam.

Focus more on the topics you are weak at: Being good at every topic is quite difficult. Like many candidates, you will find specific topics easier to understand than the others. But this shouldn't demotivate you. You can make a list of the topics that are tough for you, and work harder on them. This helps you build confidence, as well.

Breaks are vital: Spending long hours on studies, especially on difficult topics, may wear you out before your scheduled time. Breaks can help you to refocus on the topics in a better way. While solving a complex problem, many candidates have noticed that they solve it faster if they take a break and come back to the problem.

Get adequate sleep: Preparing for NEET exams is a tough job. So, getting complete sleep is essential. Adequate sleep boosts your concentration power and prepares you to understand and memorise the new concepts as well. As the brain works hard here, you must give it sufficient time to recuperate.

Things to avoid: Apart from these tips, there are a few things that are not good for your preparation strategy and your results. You must avoid the following mistakes during your NEET preparation.

1. Deviating from the timetable
2. Long study sessions
3. Ignoring NCERT textbooks
4. Referring to too many books
5. Skipping some of the topics

So, there you go. These were some of the tips that you can follow to ensure that you get a good score in the NEET exams. Also, remember to avoid common mistakes and study smartly.
