NEET:

National Eligibility and Entrance Test or NEET is the one examination which would be considered for filling about 54,000 medical seats across the country. As per the Supreme Court’s order in 2016, NEET would be the only examination to fill the All India Quota Seats as well as the State Level Quota seats across the country. This examination is also valid for applying to private colleges across the country. From 2019 onwards NEET will be conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA). This year all seats offered in All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) and Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research (JIPMER) will also be filled based on the NEET scores.
 
Know The Best Books for NEET
Got a brief idea about all the medical entrances??? Now, let’s discuss the preparation strategy.

1. Know your Syllabus-

First of all, you should know the syllabus and exam pattern of the exam you are preparing for. All the medical exams have three subjects: Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. You have to focus on your Science subject from the very beginning of Class 11th. Understand all the concepts in details and solve sufficient questions. This will clear your basics and you will be able to easily understand the detailed explanation of the concepts in Class 12th and medical entrance study materials too. The syllabus for the entrance tests is drawn from CBSE for Class XI and XII. So, you can crack the exam if you read and understand each and every concept thoroughly.

2. Identify your strength and weakness-

Try to identify which chapters of Physics, Chemistry, and Biology you find easy and which one difficult.  This will help you plan your preparation accordingly so that you can improve gradually. Cracking exams like NEET needs one to play to their strengths.

3. Make notes-

Always make notes of important points. Do not rely on only reading. Note down the important formulas, definitions, and equations for better understanding.

4. Learn the art of Time Management-

Time management is the vital factor to play well in any kind of competitive exam. You have to read, understand and analyze and answer the questions within a time constraint. If you are not able to manage your time properly, you won’t be able to convert your knowledge into marks no matter how academically strong you are. So you start practicing for this right from the beginning. Solve as many as mock test series you can so that it would be easier for you to answer questions within the limited time period in the exam.

5. Do not take stress-

Do not take stress at all. Being stressful hampers the performance as well as health. Therefore, be confident and be persistent. Make plans, distribute your time accordingly so that you would be able to finish your syllabus and find time for revision.

6.  Take advice-

When we are new in something we seek guidance and when we become experienced we provide guidance to someone else.  So never hesitate to seek guidance from others. You can talk to your parents, teachers, seniors, elder brothers and sisters who have attempted/ cleared such the exams.

7. Practice previous year question papers and supplementary materials-

Try to gather the best medical entrance preparation materials, go through them all and finally stick to a few of them which seems suitable for you. Because following a lot of study materials may make your brain confused. You can collect these materials from the market or the internet. Collect previous year question paper and analyses the pattern of the question. Focus on the frequently asked questions, topics and pattern.
