Be aware about the syllabus

The syllabus is as vast as an ocean, and you really need to know the exact location to fish out the best output. Strike out the extra information and focus on important topics. We all know NEET exam covers NCERT syllabus as well, you should compare the syllabus with your Board exam syllabus.

Practice online Mock Tests

The key to successful qualification in any entrance examination is continuous practices of mock tests. One of the greatest challenges of the NEET examination is the time limitation in which the paper has to be completed. Students have to finish a slot of 180 questions in 180 minutes (3 hours). Meaning to spend only a minute on each question . Time management is a mandatory skill that is required for this exam. While practicing at home, make sure  you keep yourself familiar with the bondage of time and practise accordingly. For references, see complete solution of previous year question papers and focus on the frequently asked questions, topics and patterns.

Take a Break from Social Media

If you have the habit of continuously checking onto your notifications, then you will have to stop it immediately. Because there is no time left to waste. You should concentrate on your study plan and make it to effective to meet the end result. Try to stay away from all the distractions as they will cause an adverse impact .

If you are tired, go on a walk instead, listen to songs but do not waste your time in scrolling up the feed on your social media accounts. This will create enough space for you to diligently work towards achieving your goal.

Take good care of yourself

It’s crucial to take care both physically and mentally. Instead of complaining “I haven’t slept enough” or “I’m eating too much junk food,” take control and plan for bringing in the balance. This will help you to be happier and more productive. Avoid junk and oily foods and switch to healthy diet plans. Do meditation and yoga exercises for better concentration.

 

 

 

Do not work with tukkas(guesswork)

You must know that the exam has negative marking hence you should carefully attempt the questions. Do not just guess any question and  lose out on marks. Attempt only the ones you really know and can score a mark on.

 

The above few points should be kept in mind before appearing for the D-Day. Be positive. Give it your best shot and yes! Do not forget to carry your admit card along!

Good Luck!

How To Know Your Strengths And Weaknesses

How to recognize your strengths and weaknesses?

Every student dreams of a successful future. Rather than building castle in Spain it is better to follow your own goals and dreams because dreams are the most personalized asset that anyone can possess. From the day when your thoughts wore the cloak of shape, size, and matter, you’re dreaming. You’re dreaming of something bigger, better and blazing. A kid dreams of a bucket of toys, a student dreams of good grades, someone dreams of a better life while many of us dream of being rich and happy.

But, is achieving your dreams are that easy when you’re vulnerable to your weaknesses? You can run on your dream path with physical wounds but can’t put a step forward with a bruised mind. So how to conquer this outer world while defeating your inner demons? Even is it possible?

Of course, yes!

Otherwise Bruce Wayne could never become ‘The Batman’.

What is strength and weakness?

Let’s understand this concept in a layman way. Anything that you can do effortlessly and the outcome of that action is constructive then such things fall under the category of strength. While on the other hand, something abrupt bump into your regular daily routine that make you feel low and stop you to do things that make you feel happy then this kind of feelings, emotions or events fall under the category of weakness.

e.g. There is a boy who enjoy playing football. He is the center forward player in his team. He is very good in dribbling the football and with the long kick too. During a match he kicks a goal from this position. But in the next minute his position has changed from center to midfield. Now forget of kicking a goal he is struggling to keep the football with him.

So what is the takeaway of this story?

Dream of the boy                             : To be a great football player                                            

Strength of the boy                          : Playing from center forward                                            

Weakness of the boy                        : Playing from midfield

In the same way we all have some great strengths that we can harness into our success.  Just like the other side of the coin, weakness comes with super strengths. But anyone can manage to do wonders by attenuating their weaknesses.

So how to recognize our strength and weaknesses?

Just ask the below questions to yourself to find your strong and weak points:

  1. What jobs do you really excel at?
  2. What are the areas where you’re most productive?
  3. What types of work do you naturally find easy?
  4. Which jobs do you find easiest when problem solving?
  5. Which areas are you really confident working in?

Answers of these questions not just only give you a clear picture of what you like or dislike but also widen your thought process.

What are some general strengths and weaknesses anyone can posses?

Strengths

strengths - cpstown

Optimistic:

People say that being optimistic is not the real approach or it’s not the reality but neither is being a pessimist. Then why be pessimistic towards life. Figure out how do you see a glass filled with water up to the centre.

Empathetic:

Trying to understand & truly feel what another person is going through (basically putting yourself in their shoes) is a trait most of us naturally inhibit. It’s not always easy, but if you want to be an empathetic person than you will always give priority to meaningful conversations & connections and develop a better understanding of people. Do you feel bad about your friend who couldnt score good marks. Then you empathize towards him.

Love for Learning:

love for learning can help you to get over many weaknesses because when you strive to improve yourself, your focus shifts to positivity – your focus shifts to problem-solving. Reading about different experiences, hearing stories and watching inspirational posts will always help you to look at the brighter side of life.

Weaknesses

Procrastination:

Whether you are a student, an employee or a housewife. Procrastination really adds more stress to life. And honestly, breaking a bad habit is hard. Delaying work, waiting for the last night before the deadline, & just leaving everything for the last minute. According to a research, 95% of us procrastinate to some extent.

Self- Criticism:

To some degree everyone have fallen into the trap of self-criticism. Over analysing & questioning abilities, I am not good enough for this position? I am not prepared for this presentation, I should have spent more time on this assignment, I am not pretty enough etc.

Worrying & Over-thinking:

Spending hours & days about a certain issue and sometimes blowing things out of proportion due to over thinking.

Worrying > Over-thinking > More Worry!

It’s a never-ending cycle that we somehow get stuck into.

Comparison:

By comparing yourself you are actually demeaning all your struggles, things that you have achieved and belittling yourself.

Weaknesses are not bad nor do they need to be destroyed. More often, altering them slightly will be to your advantage and allow them to become a strength. Having a goal in mind — what to do with your strengths — will give you healthy motivation to address your weaknesses, instead of assuming addressing weaknesses will reveal your purpose. You need to make yourself sure about dealing with them because this will help you in your stream selection thereafter.
