How to crack the NEET exam?

NEET stands for National Eligibility Entrance Test and is conducted uniformly throughout the country by NTA – National Testing Agency in May of each year. This examination accounts for the criteria of admission to pursue MBBS and BDS in premier medical institutions. Any student who wishes to sit for this exam should have passed class 12th with Physics, Chemistry and Biology. The complete examination is spread over three hours and consists of 180 questions. For each correct answer, +4 marks are given and for each incorrect answer, -1 is deducted.

How to prepare for NEET?

  • Try to master the difficult concerts as this will help in better understanding and long term retention.
  • Create a studying style of your own which caters for your own specific needs. This should be in accordance with the pace at which you study and the time you have each day.
  • Create short forms or lines and words that might help you remember some complex topics.
  • Know the syllabus well – Analyse the syllabus well and try to differentiate your strong points and shortcomings as well. 
  • Solve previous years papers and sample question papers – This will aid in understanding the exam pattern, important topics and the weightage given to each chapter. 
  • Prepare notes of important aspects of each chapter. 
  • Take care of your mental health as well – Never over exert your mental capacity, go at your own pace with sufficient break time in between. 
  • Clear all your doubts as and when they come to evade last minute stress.
  • Time your writing as well – Because the exam is time bounded and has a lot of questions too, it is necessary to increase your speed gradually in order to be able to answer all questions.
