- It is very important to have a thorough understanding of the NCERT syllabus, which is the main material for the type of questions set by CBSE.
- There are certain subtopics which are extremely important for NEET. If you find that you are weak in a sub topic as listed in the above article, give more time to read that first, for these topics are actually in focus and have been for the past years.
- Don’t just read stuff; remember stuff. NEET won’t test you solely on your concepts, there’ll be a lot of cramming required as well. Read about how to remember stuff you read here.
- Solve the past year papers and sample papers - Find as many NEET/AIPMT question papers and sample papers as you can, then attempt them. Allow yourself only 3 hours for each paper, and ensure you attempt the papers in an exam-like atmosphere to help you manage time and deal with exam-pressure.
- Analyze your performance across tests, and come up with a good strategy to tackle the real paper.
- Consider keeping revision notes – Maintain revision notes to jot down any new formulas or concepts you come across in the form of bullet points. These will come in handy when the exams are close and will help you revise much faster. Without these notes, you'll have to resort to reading through the entire chapter again, which will only waste valuable time.
- Practice. Practice is half of NEET preparation. Try solving different types of problems in Physics, and improve your speeds in Biology and Chemistry. Toppr offers you a an extensive question bank where you can practice fresh questions to test your knowledge, accuracy, and speed.
