Preparing a Study Schedule 

Unlike Science Board Exams and other basic exams, NEET is not that simple to crack. It’s a process that ropes in both patience and persistence. However, there’s nothing to fear, with timely preparation. The NEET Syllabus varies from year to year and keeping track of the same, is very essential in order to make best use of the time in hand. 

NEET 2020 Syllabus

In a nutshell, the upcoming NEET exam’s syllabus can be divided into 3 parts, Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. Under each part, the focus inclines towards Work, Energy & Power, Thermodynamics, and Diversity in Living World respectively. 

  • In order to be well-versed with all the parts, make a schedule that doesn’t end up monotonous. Killing the study atmosphere is the root cause of not being able to register the most important points. Mix it up! Study an hour of each of the three subjects every day. This wouldn’t only keep you engrossed in your study session, but would also assist in retaining the information. 
  • Make use of all sorts of study materials and stationery. Many a time, short videos would help you understand better, whatever you’ve just gone through. Making short summaries and notes on Post-its and stick them on the respective page. Use highlighters and page markers that aid in better navigation. 
  • Start your preparations at least 6 months before the exam. In fact, it’s best to start as soon as possible, once you’ve made your mind up! Last-minute preparations should certainly not be the way to go about exams like NEET since it would result in information overload, and eventually, very poor retention of information. 

THE 3 Cs- Care, confidence, and criticism 

During your preparation phase, it’s essential to etch the 3 Cs to your mind- Care, confidence, and criticism. It’s a very challenging phase, not to deny, and taking good care of your physical and mental health is essential. Hydrate yourself well! Additionally, if you find yourself going a lot behind schedule, or not keeping up with checkpoints, be open to your own criticism and work on it consciously. Lastly, over 15 lakh students are competing for seats counting up to a lakh. Confidence is the last thing that should take a hit.
