Preparation Tips

Aspirants who seek to qualify NEET 2018 examination, need to have a focused mind and strategize their preparation for the exam.

Here are a few tips on how to Prepare:

1.Solve previous year question paper

Candidates preparing for the exam must also make sure to go through previous year’s question papers or sample papers available online and offline. Sample papers help the students by providing an insight into how the question paper will look like in terms of its pattern, the type of questions and will also help the candidates know their time management skills.

It would better to start by practicing the latest paper first, and going backward (attempt 2017 paper first, followed by 2016, 2015 and so on). This is because, the NEET patterns have been changing over the years, and the last five years’ papers will give a good understanding of what to expect. Solving a sample paper will help the candidate know the level of his/her preparation.

2. Practice mock test papers

One of the greatest challenges of the NEET examination is the time limitation. Students have to finish 180 questions in 180 minutes (3 hours). It means they can give a maximum of 1 minute per question. Time management is a mandatory skill that is required for this exam. While practicing at home, make sure that you keep the time limitation in mind. see complete solution of NEET previous year question paper; focus on the frequently asked questions, topics and pattern.

3. Work out your own ‘Study Strategy’

Based on your understanding of the previous years’ papers, you will be able to figure out the chapters/units that tend to be more commonly asked across all subjects. Make a note of these and keep revising them. Make sure you get your NCERT basics right, especially for those topics.                

4.Work on weaker areas

It is possible that you are very strong in one subject and weak in the other. Do not get discouraged by the same. Try and work hard more on the weaker areas to strengthen them. If required, take help from a friend or senior or take extra classes for the subject. It will help in overcoming the fear of your weakness effectively.

5. Good study material

Make sure to get the NCERT basics right and cover the exemplar questions which will help you to understand the nature of questions being asked in the exam. Follow the elimination method of answering. Avoid the steps to manage time and use a shortcut if you are confident about it.

In the case of a match-the- following question, match what you are sure about and see if that already reveals the answers for the rest. This would also save you time from trying to match every single item in the table.

Be thorough with the details from NCERT books as one can expect a lot of direct questions which are direct theory based or a direct application of a formula.
