How To Prepare For NEET Exam
Medical students have to go through a cut-throat competition in the NEET exams because more than 1 million students appear for the NEET exam every year. Most of these students go to the exams without any preparation and some just start some study before one week of the exam. With this kind of preparation, there is a very low possibility to get a good rank that can help these students in getting admission in a good medical college. In this article, we will try to help all you medical aspirants how you can prepare for your NEET exams effectively and get a seat in some reputed college in the country.
As the syllabus of NEET has over 13000 concepts so it is evident that you have to study for a longer period instead of reading the books before a week or two. Effective preparation for the NEET exam can be done with the help of a well-structured study plan and if you are someone who did not study properly in 10th and 12th class you will need this study plan more than anyone else. Before developing this study plan, there are some important details that the students must know about. These details are the following:
|Exam name||National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET)|
|Name of the subjects||Biology – Botany & Zoology, Physics, Chemistry|
|Total number of questions||180|
|Time limit||3 hours|
|Marks for 1 question||4 marks|
These are some details related to the NEET exam and after getting a seat the students are offered two courses that are MBBS and BDS. Now it is time to make a good structure study plan that students can follow to prepare for the NEET exam. The following are the points that the student can consider while making their study plan.
Know the syllabus
Most of the students do not even know the topics in their syllabus hence their preparation gets weak. When you will see the name of the chapters and the topics listed in the syllabus, you might find the topics that you never read before and you will also find some topics that you are already familiar with. This method is going to be very crucial to formulate a strategy for the exam preparation of NEET. There are many books for the preparation of NEET but the ones recommended by the Medical Council of India (MCI) are better than others. Though it is completely up to you which book you find most helpful.
Take a look at the previous year exams
The previous year papers can be helpful for you to know the difficulty level of the questions and then you can prepare accordingly. Students are always required to solve questions papers of previous years to know their abilities and then improvements can be made accordingly.
Create a realistic time table
While preparing the study plan, some students allocate their study hours that are kind of impossible. If some student never read more than 2 hours at a stretch then there is no point of creating a time table with time stretch of 4-5 hours in one sitting. The time table must include some sufficient number of breaks to restore some energy and get back to study. If you like to study early morning then make the time table like that and if you study late night then make it accordingly. The point is that your time table should be made specifically for you.
No matter how much intelligent you are and how much your IQ level is, if you do not study your syllabus or reading material consistently you are going to forget it for sure. Students who study more but only occasionally get fewer marks than the ones who study less but consistently. This is why the students who had the habit of reading from their 10th and 12th class find it easier to prepare for the NEET exam than others. Consistency can be developed by focusing only on the exam and leave the things aside that divert your mind.
This is something like revising the topics you have read during your preparation for NEET examination. The mock test only helps you to know your intelligence and knowledge but also give you an idea about the speed with which you need to solve the questions. Sometimes the students spend too much time in solving questions that they need to leave the questions that they could solve easily. Time is a major factor in NEET exam. So the mock test will help in three ways that are the following:
- Help in the revision of syllabus
- Time management
- Analyze your performance
Maintain health while exam preparation
This is the most important factors while preparing for the NEET exam and most students ignore it. Students take too much mental pressure while preparation and when things do not go quite well they go into depression. Students need to take a good 7-8 hours of sleep and should worry less about the exam because it is not some once in a lifetime kind of opportunity and there is no need to get disheartened if you do not get a seat.
Saving lives of millions is not an easy job and the person who is saving those lives must be hard-working, diligent and passionate about this profession. Students who do good preparation will know for sure that their efforts were worthy. On the day of the result, you might get disappointed if you get a bad result but do not worry you will get more opportunities in life. The only thing that student should focus on is their efforts and honesty during the exam preparation. We wish you the best of luck for your NEET exam preparation and hope that this article helped you to know how to prepare for the NEET exam for the best results with effective study planning.
