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.

Circle out weaker areas and work on them

focus on weak areasIt is possible that you are very strong in Biology and weak in Physics. Do not get discouraged by the same.

Try and work hard more on the Physics syllabus to strengthen them. If required, take help from a friend or senior or take extra classes for the subject. It will help you in overcoming the fear of your weakness effectively.

 

 

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!
