NEET 2017 Preparation Tips

Know the syllabus of the examination well: The very first thing that candidates should know is the complete syllabus of the particular exam. Since we know NEET exam covers NCERT syllabus as well. You can compare the syllabus with your Board exam syllabus. It is beneficial for you if there are common chapters as you will not need to prepare them separately. This will give you ample time to concentrate on the parts of the syllabus that are not covered.

Make a schedule of study for the week: Until and unless you make a complete and thorough schedule of the way you want to study, you will not be able to complete the syllabus. Plan for the week in advance. Figure out chapters that you need to prepare from the beginning and chapters that will need only revision. Working in this manner will help you cover all parts of the syllabus uniformly. Allot time for each segment and try and maintain that.

Work on weaker areas: It might happen that you are very strong in one subject and weak in the other. Do not feel disheartened by the same. Try and work hard more on the weaker areas to strengthen them. If required, take help from a friend or senior or take extra classes for the subject. This will help in overcoming the fear of your weakness effectively.

Practice mock test papers: One of the greatest hurdles of the NEET-UG examination is the time limitation. Candidates have to finish 180 questions in 180 minutes (3 hours). It means they can give a maximum of 1 minute per question. Time management is a mandatory skill that is required for this exam. While practising at home, make sure that you keep the time limitation in mind. Try to solve the questions in lesser time so that you have some time for final revision as well.

Do not fall for guesswork: Many candidates have the tendency of applying guesswork to questions they don’t know. However, it might prove risky in this case as there is negative marking for a wrong answer. It is recommended to leave a question completely if you do not know the right answer.
