NEET Preparation Strategy

NEET Preparation

For every candidate preparing for NEET, it is necessary to work out a preparation plan. At times candidates find it difficult to prepare for the exam in stipulated time. Hence, working out a plan is essential to complete the syllabus and practice questions in time.

About the exam

One cannot kickstart NEET Preparation before one knows all about the exam. NEET or The National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test has now become the only undergraduate entrance test for gateway to top government medical colleges. Every year around 15 Lakh students write the NEET exam for admission into the top medical colleges of India. Competition is definitely tough. However, the exam can be conquered with the right strategy and correct mindset.

NEET exam consists of 3 sections-

  • Physics
  • Chemistry
  • Biology

There is a limited time of 3hrs to complete the exam. Now that you know, the exam consists of 3 sections of equal weightage. NEET Preparation has to be done in a way that you equally divide your focus on all the three sections (easier said, than done).

Key points for NEET Preparation

NEET Preparation needs to be streamlined with the key points given-

  • Inductive Approach: Build a year long timetable.
  • Deductive Approach: Build daily time table.
  • Remember this is a long marathon but everyday is a sprint.
  • Study limited material.
  • NCERTs should be the base material and it shouldn't be ignored.
  • Assign one reference book to every topic and try to finish that first.
  • Give regular mock tests. This will ensure that you practice in the actual NEET environment.
  • Analyse each and every mock.
  • Maintain formula book: For each and every chapter of Physics, Chemistry and Biology maintain a single page notes. So that it is easy to read just before the exam.

NEET Preparation: The Right Material

NEET Preparation strategy needs to be streamlined with the right material first. So here is some must have NEET preparation material-

  • NCERTs: NCERTs should be your basic material. Ignoring this can cost you heavily. NEET Preparation should be solely based on reading NCERTs.
  • Any good NEET Coaching material- This provides you with the opportunity to practice questions based on the actual NEET pattern.
  • Previous year question papers- Ignore this and you are doomed. During NEET Preparation, previous year questions are of utmost importance. Logic is simple, NEET in itself doesn't prescribe any book or material. It is only the previous year questions that are provided by the exam through which you judge the exam.
  • Mock Tests- Give regular mock tests and analyse them to know your weaknesses and strengths.
  • This was the basic NEET Preparation strategy for all the three subjects.

NEET Preparation: Subject-wise Strategy

Now let's move on to the subject wise strategy-

  • Biology (Zoology and Botany)
    This is our favourite and all many students tend to spend a lot more time and then fail to score in other subjects. So a balance is necessary. Start with the basic NCERTs and then follow the above strategy. You should revise NCERTs frequently. Don't neglect them.
  • Chemistry
    This section is very scoring and comparatively easier one. Class 11th and 12th NCERTs are more than sufficient for the exam. They are the Bible for NEET Preparation in Chemistry.
  • Physics
    This is where most students find difficulty. But this is mainly due to the lack of practice. Students exhaust themselves with biology and chemistry that they tend to procrastinate studying physics. However, considering the past trends this can be a rank decider. Strategy here also is the same. Read NCERTs thoroughly first and then move on to any material.

NEET Preparation: The Right Timetable

Here are some tips to help you prepare the right time-table for yourself-

  • Devote at least 6-7 hours of self study daily.
  • Take a sufficient number of breaks in between. You shouldn't study more than 2 hours at stretch.
  • Take proper sound sleep of 6-8 hours daily.
  • Take out time for revision. For ex- if you are in 12th class do take out time to revise the 11th class material too.
  • Do take out time to relax and exercise. Remember a healthy body leads to a healthy mind.
