Over the years, National Eligibility cum Entrance Test has earned its reputation as one of the most fiercely competitive medical entrance exams. Around 11 lakh students appeared for the exam in 2017. The number is further expected to rise this year which will ultimately lead to increase in competition. Knowing a few tips and tricks from medical and coaching professionals in the industry can be an added advantage for aspirants. Here are top 5 expert tips from the experts themselves to help you ace NEET 2018 with zero difficulty.
Plan Ahead and Stick to It
The best practice is to make a study plan and following it meticulously. It is suggested to have chapter-wise subject allocation along with extra time kept aside for studying special subjects such as the formula of physics and chemical equations in chemistry. One must have separate time for mock tests as well. The study plan should be sufficiently flexible. In case you miss one session for any occasion, you should be able to cover the same without disturbing the whole plan.
Follow Good Study Material
Various study material are available in the market. Be sure to choose the right one. The quality of books can cause a lot of difference in the end result. The NCERT is the most recommended book as it covers all subjects. Books such as Concept of Physics by H. C. Verma, ABC of Biology by Dr. B.B. Arora & A.K. Sabharwal, Physical Chemistry by OP Tandon, Organic Chemistry by Morrison and Boyd are one some of the most recommended books.
Students must read the entire syllabus of Class XI and XII. NEET 2018 syllabus is based on that. Push harder in the subjects you feel, you are ‘weak’. Don’t skip any chapter.
The old saying ‘practice makes a man perfect’ is never been truer. The best thing you can do to prepare for the examination is practice. Keep separate time for practice and mock tests. Find online mock tests and start solving them. Practice with previous year question papers. Many coaching centers also have their own mock tests. Solving question papers will not only help you gain confidence, you will also get an idea about the questions and further improve your speed and accuracy.
Remember this is a marathon and not a sprint. To cover long distance, you need to save your breath for the last push. Your study plan should give you enough time to rest and relax. In this long preparatory phase, it is normal to have self-doubt every now and then. You will also have study-fatigue. But always remember to keep your head straight on the goal. Take a short break, relax. Once you feel better, get back to the hard work.
Some of the most intelligent students of the country compete in NEET. Hard work and dedication will reap you the results you deserve. Follow the study plan, cover the entire syllabus, practice through mock tests and stay motivated.
