  •         Firstly, NEET is the entry portal into over 540 renowned top-tier government and private medical and dental colleges in India.
  •        However, AIIMS and JIPMER do not employ NEET as their entrance exam.

What is NEET?

The national eligibility cum entrance test (NEET) is a common, national-level entrance test conducted by CBSE that offers admissions to both UG and PG students in all government, private and deemed medical institutions across the country. NEET UG offers approximately 90000 seats for all MBBS and BDS courses in various institutions. in compliance withe the supreme court ruling of 2016, the NEET UG exam replaces the AIPMT and all other state-based entrance tests for admisssion into medical and dental institutions. It is an offline exam that follows the conventional paper-pen method.

Where are NEET scores accepted?

NEET scores are accepted in all government, private and deemed medical and dental institutions in the country and is the sole qualifying criteria for admissions into these institutions except for AIIMS and JIPMER which conduct their own entrance exams. Following is a brief simplification of how the neet scores are accepted in colleges nation-wide:

●  15% All India Quota seats in Government (medical and dental colleges) in all states and UTs of India. the admission to these seats is done via online counselling by the Directorate General of Health Services(DGHS) on behalf of the Medical Counselling Committee (MCC).
●  85% State Quota seats for MBBS and BDS admis-sions in all states and UTs of India, led by the Director of Medical Education for their respective states.
●  MBBS and BDS seats in all private and deemed medical colleges across the country including minority institutions such as CMC Vellore and CMC Ludhiana etc.This is also done by the DGHS based on the NEET Merit List.
● MBBS and BDS seats in Armed Forces Medical Col- lege (AFMC), Banaras Hindu University (BHU) and Aligarh Muslim University (AMU)

However, merely appearing and qualifying in NEET does not guarantee admissions in MBBS/BDS Courses. The selection and admission to MBBS/BDS seats in any Medical Institution recognized for offering MBBS/BDS courses is subject to fulfilling the admission criteria, eligibility, rank in merit list, medical fitness and such other criteria as may be prescribed by the CBSE, the Medical Council of India (MCI), respective states, Universities and medical/ dental colleges.

Implementation of NEET

The implementation of NEET, which is a single entrance exam for admission to all MBBS/BDS programmes all across the country has successully centralized the process of admission to these courses and replaced the need for multiple admission tests and counselling procedures. It has nullified more than 90 medical entrance exams in india with the slight exception of AIIMS and JIPMER and has reduced the cost burden on students and their parents who would earlier apply for 15-20 exams from anywhere between Rs. 30,000 and Rs. 40,000 to one centralized exam at a negligible cost. The implementation of NEET also minimizes travel hassles and brings about transparency in the admission process.

Common syllabus

NEET has made the entrance exam syllabus common for all candidates, irrespective of their board of higher secondary examination. The common syllabus is prescribed by CBSE for NEET UG and by the MCI for NEET PG. This reduces the burden on aspirants of having to cover various syllabuses for their preparation. Thie common syllabus for NEET also puts uniformity in evaluation process by establishing the same parameters for checking the competency level of candidates across country. The NEET question paper is also made available in some regional languages to facilitate candidates who did not follow English as a medium of instruction.

Physics Preparation Tips for NEET Exam 2019

Since the physics section of NEET exam contains a wide variety of theoretical concepts and numerical problems, medical students find it very difficult to prepare this subject for the exam.

Physics preparation for NEET needs to be very strong with the fundamentals. It requires the problem solving and application skills which can be achieved or improved when the basics are clear.

Unlike the other two subjects (Biology & Chemistry), physics requires more hard work and focus cause you will be facing both theoretical and practical questions in the exam.

In this post, we have summon up the seven tips that you students can follow to prepare for physics to crack neet exam.

Here are those seven tips for NEET Physics Preparation:

1. Know The Syllabus

This is not just for physics preparation, this should be taken care of in every subject. You must know what you are getting into and knowing the syllabus of the subject is the best way to do that.

NEET physics syllabus has a total of 30 chapters in it. Chapters like Units & Measurement, Laws of Motion, Gravitation, Waves, etc.

2. Figure out the Important Chapters

Alright, you know the syllabus now so what’s next? Prepare for the whole syllabus? Prepare for each and every chapter on tips?

No, this may not be impossible but this surely not a smart way to prepare for the exams especially for physics.

As mentioned above, this subject requires you to be prepared for both theoretical and practical problems and this takes a good amount of time.

Figuring the important chapters will help you prepare smartly.

Important Chapters of Physics:

1. Mechanical Properties of Solids and Flueds
2. Current Electricity
3. Dual Nature of Radiation and Matter
4. Moving Charges and Magnetism
5. Thermodynamics
6. Work Energy and Power
7. Motion in a Plane
8. Ray Optics and Optical Instruments
9. Wave Optics
10. Thermal Properties of Matter
11. Gravitation
12. Oscillations
13. Alternating Current
14. Waves
15. Electric Charges and Fields
16. Semiconductors Electronics

3. Crystal Clear Concepts

Now that you have the important chapters form Physics, your next move should be to make the concepts of these chapters crystal clear.

Prepare from these chapters exceptionally strong. In a way like if the question happens to appear from such topic in the actual exam, you lose no score in that.

4. Understand the Exam Pattern

Another important practice is to understand what pattern does the exam have. This also includes the marking scheme.

Read our post chapter wise weightage for NEET exam to know the NEET exam pattern.

5. Learn Formulas

There is a sea of formulas in Physics and students try to learn every single formula to solve any kind of question. What happens actually is, due to the attempt to learn all the formulas students end up retaining only a few. This really doesn’t help to solve the problem.

The key to solving this problem is to identify the important factors of studying physics which are:

1. Definitions

2. Fundamental Laws

These two factors combined give such a number of results.

If you master the CRUX, which is these two fundamentals, it will help you to solve almost every problem and that too in your own way.

6. Choose the Best Book to Study

Without any doubts, NCERT is the best book to prepare for physics, not just for physics but for the other two subjects of NEET syllabus also.

Everything is explained in very easy to understand language. But, when it comes to preparing for the numerical problems students get restricted after practicing with all the questions of NCERT book.

Students should prefer additional help. Practicing numerical questions from the additional book will give students a variety of different questions.

The more you practice the more confident you get with your preparation.

Having said that, this does not mean you take 3-4 books to practice. Pick only one but the best in the game.

‘ERROR LESS’ is the right book to prepare for physics. It’s publisher is Universal and the book has two volumes.

7. Practice Solving Previous Year Question Paper and Test Series

Solving previous year question paper is one the best practices for exam preparation. Doing this, will help you know the exam pattern and the type of questions you will face.

Same goes with the test series, practicing with the test series is equally important and a sign of strong preparation. This will help you evluate your preparation as it gives you immediate results and help you know your lacking areas.

You can then work on them and make sure those are not your lacking areas anymore.

it’s easy to find neet online test series to practice. There are platforms available online that provides free online test series for neet.

These are the steps students can follow for Physics NEET Preparation. We really hope these will help you prepare strong and score well in the exam.

ALL THE BEST!

#7 Reasons Why Students Should Prepare for NEET with Online Coaching Instead of Offline.

Do you think an online coaching can replace traditional offline coaching?

If Yes, then we are on the same page!

If No, then you really need to read this post.

 

 

Do you know how many students prepare for NEET every year? It’s 30 lac. Now the next big question is how many qualified teachers are there to teach those people?

Believe me, it’s not even in 5 digits. If my calculation is right and I take the most ideal case, there will be approximately 500 students per teacher.

Seems like an issue? But what If I tell you out of these 7000 teachers 90% are in metro cities and out of 30 lac students 70% are in small cities and remote places.

After observing this anomaly anyone can figure out that there is some disconnect and every student can’t get a good teacher due to multiple factors like affordability, accessibility and sometimes peer pressure.

To overpower this issue there is only one way i.e. Online coaching. Yes, studying online is the only solution to this problem as you can’t relocate every single student to a big city neither a teacher can hold a class of 500 students at a time.

We understand, it seems like over promised but researches said that online education can eliminate such barriers.

So, Let’s get into this amazing journey where you will find why online coaching is the next big thing to make your dream, becoming a doctor, come true.

Here are the points proving why internet based learning is convenient than offline coaching.

 

1. Videos are the Talking Book

Below mentioned is a little comparison of why video lecture can be a helpful tool to understand things more easily than books.

 

S.NO

BOOKS

VIDEO LECTURES

1. Lengthy content required expert’s guidance. An expert will explain you everything
2. Books might contain error High Retention rate (up to 70%)
3. Low Retention rate (10% only) High Retention rate (up to 70%)
4. Every topic is having the same priority Expert know which topic is more important than other
5. Take a lot of time Takes a lot less time than reading a book

 

2. 24X7 Access to the Lectures

Online coaching platforms provide videos available 24 hours to the students. Usually, the kit students get, after purchasing the course, includes a pen drive with all the lectures pre-installed along with the online login credentials.

This service allows students to watch the video lecture at any time, anywhere. Even without the internet connectivity, how convenient isn’t it?

You have the video lectures with you and you can access those lectures whenever you have the free time. The flexibility of timing really gives a helping hand.

Whereas, offline coaching doesn’t seem to have that flexibility. You need to choose a single slot of timing from the given options and require to stick to that schedule throughout the session.

 

3. Experts are always available online

Every student wishes to have an expert as their teacher, but that just doesn’t happen to everyone. Why? Cause having sessions from experts cost you way more and not all students can afford to pay such fee.

Experts don’t even have time to give you daily, offline, lectures. Offline coaching institutes have a rigid schedule to follow so they plan the expert sessions accordingly.

However, in online coaching, you don’t face such kind of a problem. You hold the complete freedom to access the lecture from an expert on any chapter at any time.

 

4. Boost Your Self Study with Online Coaching

Self-study will always be the best way to learn things, but sometimes books don’t explain everything you need to understand the concepts.

That said, language explained in the books proves to be difficult to understand sometimes. In such cases, students need some easy to understand language.

In school, teachers have limited time to cover up the whole syllabus. Under the pressure of which students fail to understand the concepts and teachers somehow avoid taking the pain to explain things more than twice.

however studying online allows you to rewind the same lecture again and again until you understand the topic.

 

5. Saves a lot of Your Time and Money too

not every student, who has the dream to become a doctor, comes from a rich family.

Online coaching is much more economic and saves a lot of your parent’s money.

Whereas, Offline coaching institute charges you in lacs as their tuition fee for NEET preparation and this surely not affordable by everyone.

Moreover, to attend the lectures you have to get to the coaching center first and that might take around half an hour to 45 minutes to travel (single side).

And this is just a time waste. Not just it wastes your time, it cost you something too.

This time, however, wastage can be eliminated with the online coaching. No travel time and money is required, just a simple login and you are good to go.

 

6. Practicing with Regular Test Series Made Easy

This is something which you will get in both online and offline coaching.

Both online and offline coaching have their own test series to practice but the major difference is schedule and execution.

Offline coaching has their fixed time slots for a test series to be conducted and it’s not necessary that you are prepared at that time.

What may happen is, you may not be ready at the scheduled time to attempt a test and you will end up scoring a not so good result.

On the other hand, online coaching allows you to take the exam at your convenience. Go online, log in to your account, open the test series and you are good to go with that.

However, practicing online requires more discipline towards the preparation. It’s very easy to cheat on yourself and that’s what needs to be avoided.

You just need to be honest with yourself that you will prepare and attempt the test regularly.

 

7. Stay Updated with The Latest Notification

You will get updated with the latest changes by both the sources (offline and online). But a minor difference would be that, in offline coaching, you need to wait for the next day until you are in lecture.

And if you missed out on the lecture you missed out on the update.

Whereas, teachers of online coaching releases their views and expert advice online at the very same moment.

For example, NTA (National Testing Agency) has made some updates in the NEET 2019 exam. First, it was notified that NEET exam will be conducted twice a year from 2019 onwards.

But, now they notified that this is not going to happen. NEET exam will be held only once in a year like it was.

 

Watch this video to know the latest updates notified by NTA on NEET 2019.

 

 

 

So the point is, teachers, update notifications online faster than they update in their offline classes.

And releasing the update about notifications online is much more convenient too, so this makes sense.

 

THE BOTTOM LINE

With the benefits of internet-based learning available, students gets comfort, convenience and guidance in just couple of clicks.

Choose the best online coaching for neet and All the Best for your preparations.

#10 important tips for preparation of NEET 2020 Examination

So,If you are looking for some tips regarding learning time management, following a routine as well as clearing basic concepts the you are at the right place. Given below are some of the mandatory tips to crack NEET 2020:

If you are looking forward to appearing in neet 2020 attempt then most probably you are in 11th standard right now. Which means you have plenty of time to prepare for NEET 2020 syllabus.

So, how to crack neet 2020?

Finish school syllabus : Start with your school syllabus. Score good marks in the unit tests, midterms and all and leave neet preparation for the later. keep solving more and more problems, this will help you in attaining speed as well as accuracy.

Possible two attempts in NEET 2020 :  For Feb 2020 attempt students  have a few months to prepare and for May attempt, 21 months. I would suggest appearing in both the attempts as your best score, out of the both, will be considered as your NEET score.

Six hours per day : Build a habit of Studying at least six hours a day yourself.

Online Lectures : You can take help from NEET video lectures.

Calculate and Analyse : Work on your analytical skills and calculations. This needs a lot of practice and efforts and appearing for NEET exam requires plenty of hard work.

Say no to Mugging : Stop mugging and start paying more attention towards understanding the concepts.

Solve problems with accuracy and speed : Practice more and more MCQs and try to be accurate with speed.Solve at least 100 test series for neet for each chapter of chemistry and physics, and 200 question from each chapter in biology.

Self assessment is a must : After completing every chapter, do some self assessment. Solve some of the previous year’s mock test and papers. This will give you an idea of your Preparation.

Know your Weaknesses : For the topics you are weak in, start taking help of a teacher or mentor and Clear all of your doubts regarding the clearity of concept then practice some related problems daily at the end of the day.

Practice More : Try to cover one chapter in a week. It will give you a lot of time to practice for the NEET Exam 2020.

If you have already decided to drop a year to prepare for neet then I would suggest reading this post further, you might need to think about it twice after you finish reading.

Let me tell you the benefit of neet preparation without dropping a year or should I say with your school. While you study from NCERT in your school, you are simultaneously preparing for neet exam, cause the syllabus of CBSE Board matches exactly with NEET syllabus.

Same for State Board, Students who are giving their high school exams from state boards are also preparing for neet as neet and state board shared the same syllabus.

However, it’s not as easy as it sounds. You have got to follow a schedule and to do so you have to make one. It’s very important to make a daily study timetable for neet exam if you intend to have positive results.

As your school syllabus helps a lot in the neer preparation, I don’t see any point of dropping a whole year to prepare for neet.

I know it’s difficult but remember ‘hardest roads leads to greatest destinations’.

If you haven’t started preparing for neet yet, you better start it. Considering Feb 2020 attempt as a target, you have 78 weeks to prepare which means weekly you need to give 20-22 hours to your studies.

So, how many hours to study daily to crack neet in 2020?

SOME IMPORTANT POINTERS

1. BE CAREFUL WITH THE NEET SYLLABUS

After the latest announcement on neet eligibility criteria 2019 by NTA, you should keep an eye on syllabus too.

There is no update on neet 2020 syllabus yet but stay updated who knows NTA shoot the students with the syllabus update.

Moreover, with the objective to clear the neet exam, it’s important to know about the complete syllabus, so that you only focus on something which is required to crack the exam.

2. MANAGE YOUR TIME

As we discussed the study timetable for neet above, time management is the key to follow that schedule.

Managing time can even help you spare some ME TIME as well. In which you can do what you like or what your hobbies are or anything that refreshes you.

3. DON’T UNDERESTIMATE YOUR DOUBTS

Neglecting any topic just because you find it hard to understand is a big ‘no-no’. You should focus even more on those topics and get the doubts cleared.

There are chances that basic questions from the topic, you left unstudied, appear in the exam. So, it’s important you at least know the basics of each and every chapter of the neet exam syllabus.

4. SOLVE AS MANY TEST PAPERS AS YOU CAN

Practice makes the man perfect, and the more you practice with the test papers the more you get yourself ready for the actual exam.

In today’s world, everything is online and it’s too easy to find test series for neet online to practice. Solving test papers also help in evaluating your performance.

Try comparing the test you solve with the previous one. This will help in reducing the chances of committing mistakes and increase in the performance with every test you take will also motivate you.

5. NOTE YOUR MISTAKES

Mistakes are the best teacher.

Try making a note which contains all the mistakes you made in the tests or in while preparing. After a certain period of time, you will end up having a number of mistakes.

Review them and make sure you are not doing it in your next step.

Regular review of your mistakes is important. So that you learn from them and not commit them in the exam.

6. PREPARE NOTES WHILE TAKING CLASS

Making class notes and reviewing them after the class is one of the best practices for exam preparation.

Students tend to remember the longest what they write while taking the class.

Revise later from the notes. This smart revision technique will save your time and boost your confidence to make more optimized notes.

7. BE CONFIDENT

Have confidence in yourself. The positive attitude will lead you towards strong preparation and strong preparation will lead you to positive results.

Self-belief is the key to success.

8. CONSISTENCY

The previous point (no. 7) and this point don’t just help you crack the neet exam but to crack every challenge of your life. ‘Believe Yourself, Be Consistent’ with what you are doing and you know what you are doing is right.

To this post’s context, you should be consistent with your studies. Make it your habit to complete your daily targets until you succeed.

9. DON’T WORRY ABOUT THE NOTIFICATIONS ON NEET

These changes may arise a doubt about your neet preparation that whether to focus on preparation or not. But I would suggest not to do that.

Changes will come and go, just don’t focus on that.

Let’s talk about more about notifications. A few days back NTA announced that the NEET exam will happen twice in a year from 2019 onwards.

But, the latest notification by NTA says, NEET will happen only once in a year.

Don’t allow these notifications have an impact on your preparation. Once or twice, doesn’t matter, you have to give your best shot in the very first chance you get.

10. CHOOSE THE BEST TUTOR

Make sure you choose the best coaching to study. Considering the fact that neet 2020 attempters have got comparatively have more time to prepare for those who are planning for the 2019 attempt.

This time should be utilized properly for neet preparation only. As teachers play a major role in a student’s preparation. Students should also make sure that they are choosing the right place to study.

There are a number of options available in the market, both online and offline, but I would suggest you consider taking online coaching.

As having everything available online students can now study for neet online too.

Dos and Don’t while preparing for NEET 2019

National Eligibility cum Entrance Test or NEET is one of the most competitive exams in India and one of the biggest exams for the Medical student to get admission in some of the Top Medical colleges like AIIMS etc. Every medical student is preparing for NEET 2019 these days. Some of them are very focused and some of them are enjoying their life, but with everything, there is a slight difference between good and bad, right and wrong, do and don’t. Today, we will be discussing some Dos and Don’t while preparing for NEET 2019.

 

DOs:

  1. NCERT is your best friend

 

The student usually makes a stack pile of books and mugging them like anything but they never consider NCERT as a great option while preparing for NEET 2019. Believe me, if you want to score really good marks, Finish up NCERT on the first place.

 

  1. Take tests:

Tests are an ultimate way to find your spot in the crowd. Over 12 lakh student appear for NEET every year. You must know your spot between them. Test series also allows you to analyze your mistakes and let you find the key points where you have to make some extra effort. You must have a day for your test in your weekly schedule. The best way to enroll yourself in some test series is to purchase an online test series, which will also help you to get a glimpse of NEET paper. As per my advice, Test series is a must if you are preparing for NEET 2019.

Get free test series with 25+ test papers.

  1. Make Proper Schedule:  

Students always complain to me about their schedule, they always ask that they can’t follow up on their schedule due to multiple factors. The only solution to this problem is making a quasi-rigid timetable ( It must be rigid but you can change this according to your condition ).

One more thing, Students always ask me to make their schedule which is absolutely wrong, because I don’t know your personal life, your daily activities and can’t fill them up in the schedule and you will face difficulty while following my schedule.

My Suggestion: Make your own schedule and follow it like your religion. I can still guide you how to make a timetable.

 

  1. Take Rest:

Scheduling reminds me of Rest, Students always draft their timetable with zero resting hours, this is another reason why you can’t follow this. Take proper rest so that your mind and body can remain active and your learning capacity will be at your peak.

 

  1. Believe in Technology:

It’s 21st century and technology has evolved so much that you can’t even imagine. Now you can watch thousand of lecture over youtube for Free, or you can purchase any online coaching and study with the Top teachers right from your bedroom or even from your dining table.

Smartphones are an amazing piece of invention and you can achieve a lot more with them by just downloading a couple of Educational Application to your phone.

For those who always complain that they are from small town or cities where they can’t find good teachers and study material, the internet must be your best friend and you can find the best faculty, material and test series over there to help you prepare for NEET.  

 

Don’ts:  

 

  1. Stack Pile Books:

 

I saw student purchasing “n” number of books and never read a single one. Some of the students even mug up on every single book. But, believe me, both the cases are not good. First of all, you are wasting a lot of money and second of all, you will get confused and waste an ample amount of time which you can use it for your neet preparation. Choose 1 or 2 good books along with your NCERT and finish them properly. This is enough to get 600+ in your NEET 2019.

 

  1. Too many mentors:

Student often finds themselves following many mentors and ended up being frustrated with the conflicting learning. Every mentor is good enough to shape your future, that why he is a mentor – must follow 1 or 2 mentors per subject and this is it. It’s more than what you seek for an assist while preparing for NEET 2019.

 

  1. Ignoring Health:

Students usually ignore this factor. But you can’t study or focus when you are not healthy. 1 day of sickness usually destroys a week of preparation. Along with this your recovery also takes time to take proper rest, stay healthy and shield yourself from any bacteria and viruses.

 

Compete with Sharma Ji Ka Ladka:

This is another factor which usually makes students unmotivated and distracted from their study. They try to compete with an exceptionally amazing student and doing so waste a lot of time. Instead of having cold grudges, speak to him ask him about your doubt take his advice and learn from him. Have some healthy competition but never have some grudges with him or her.

 

So, these were a couple of Dos and Don’ts you must consider while preparing for NEET 2019. These are some most common and most effective things which can change your score drastically.

 

DON’T TRY TO RUN FROM YOUR DISTRACTIONS. SCHEDULE THEM!

Yes! don’t run from your distractions instead schedule them.

 

Students have to keep on asking this questions that they get too much distracted with their respective distractions so how they can ignore them or run from them.

 

A neet aspirant is required to study for 8-10 hours daily to crack the neet exam. it’s hard for students to keep themselves focus for such long hours for months.

 

Distractions come in many forms. From Facebook to WhatsApp, chatting to a meeting, boyfriend to girlfriend and more.

 

Students usually try to stop being involved in it and end up engaging in these distractions more than their studies. Experts say to have a daily study plan for neet or for any other exam you are preparing for.

 

There is a reason behind it. Making your study timetable scheduled binds students to follow it throughout the day and help them in better preparation.

 

Assume about making a schedule for the distractions. Let’s admit it, it is a really tough job to get rid of the distractions for the students, especially at such age.

 

Scheduling them will help to indulge in the distractions but to a very limited extent. This won’t harm students personal life and studies at all. Besides how well students schedule and how honest they are with their schedule.

 

So, how can we schedule them? Well, here is a schedule you can follow:

 

NOTE: This schedule is the bifurcation of 24 hrs. And how you can borrow some time for distractions.

 

• Study for 8 – 10 hours a day including the revision time.

 

• 7 hours sleep

 

• 4 hours other things (breakfast, lunch, refreshing up etc.)

 

Now, students can give 3 hours to your distractions.

 

Students can play in such a time or can spend this time outside or go to meet a friend or anything they like to do.

 

Looks easy right? But trust me, it’s not.

 

At this age, students create a number of schedules but fail to follow any of them. That won’t work for an exam like neet.

 

Here is a video of an expert, Mr. Kapil Gupta, explaining it in a more elaborative way.

 

 

Now that you have watched, good luck scheduling you ME TIME.

PROVEN STRATEGY ON HOW TO ATTEMPT NEET EXAM 2019

neet exam strategy

If you are reading this post, I am assuming that you already know what NEET is. For just a glance, neet (National Entrance Cum Entrance Test) is an entrance test for the students who wish to graduate in medical courses like MBBS & BDS.

After clearing the entrance, students search for medical colleges (Private or Govt.) to get admission in. Neet is considered to be one of the toughest exams to clear.

And a difficult exam demands strong preparation too. Your neet preparation should be strong enough to pass the neet exam with the flying colors and for that strong preparation, you must have an effective study plan.

But, that’s not why you are here to know how to prepare for neet. However, the question, how to prepare for neet exam? Is also included in the question of neet preparation.

So, here I will share some powerful tips that you must consider to be your strategy to attempt the neet exam.

Attempting the exam in a right and a planned way will surely help to score good marks. Planning to attempt the exam is the final step for your neet preparation.

You need to be very clear on how you are going to attempt the paper in order to finish it on time and avoid negative markings in order to maximize your score.

HERE ARE SOME TIPS TO FOLLOW

1. TIME MANAGEMENT

neet exam time management

You have 180 questions in neet exam and 180 minutes to solve them. This means you have one minute to solve each question.

Out of those 180 questions, it’s expected, 140 would be based out on theory or simple numerical.

These questions won’t take more than half a minute. So, considering that you can spend approx. 3 minutes for the real challenging problem.

So, in a summary, you have got 3 min. For hard problems, 2 min. For the tough problems, and 1 min. For easier problems.

2. TIME MANAGEMENT ACCORDING TO SUBJECT

subject wise time management

The most scoring subject out of all 3 is biology. This subject has the major total of 360 marks out of 720 marks and the questions would theory based.

So it would be less time taking than the other two.

Look at the below table to understand more:

S.NO SUBJECT TIMING
1.

BIOLOGY

Try to complete the biology section in 45 min.

And target 82 (right answers) out of 90 questions.

2.

CHEMISTRY

Complete this section of the exam within 60 min.

35 (correct answer) out of 45.

3.

PHYSICS

Take 65 min. To solve this section.

And here, target 30 (right answers) out of 45.

There is a reason I have talked about the “Correct Answers”. Neet exam has negative marking scheme as well and not every question you attempt will be right.

So, you have to set your strategy keeping in mind about the negative marking. And here, I am assuming the remaining questions are incorrect.

If you get 82 questions right out of 90 questions in Biology that would make 320 marks.

35 correct answers out 45 in Chemistry would give you 130 marks.

In physics, 30 correct answers out of 45 questions will make 105 marks.

This will totally make 555 marks out of 720 and if you succeed in getting this result you will just have the good chances to admitted in a good medical college.

3. ORDER OF ATTEMPTING THE EXAM

neet exam subject wise

As details mentioned above, according to me, the preferred order would be Biology | Chemistry | Physics.

However, the order to attempt the exam is not much important but yes, it plays a good role in building up your strategy to attempt the exam.

Another thing you can do is, solve as many test series as you can with different orders and see what order works best for.

Follow that order and include it in your strategy.

HOW TO PRACTICE ACCORDING FOR SECOND POINT (Time Management According to Subject)

Let’s start with the bio.

Take a set of 90 questions for biology and set an alarm for 45 min. Solve the questions within the set time and check how close you are to 82 correct answers.

prepare for neet biology

Do accordingly for the other two (Chemistry & Physics) subjects.

Now, it’s not easy to follow the regime but you have signed in for Neet that means you don’t like easy things.

If you have already started preparing for the 2019 attempt then you have enough time to prepare efficiently. Build your strategy to attempt the exam with the preparation and prepare accordingly.

In my opinion, you should start off with zoology syllabus and botany syllabus (biology). Get done with and then as soon as you can and then focus on Chemistry and Physics.

IMPORTANT

Try to avoid negative marking. You need to have clarity on what you know and what you don’t know.

Every negative mark avoided is also a mark gained.
