Every year the National Testing Agency (NTA) conducts the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) that helps the student to get admission for Medical courses.
It is a highly competitive exam and lakhs of students will be appearing in the NEET to wish their dreams to come true in the Medical field. Since it is the toughest competitive exam, students need to prepare well for the exam with determination, consistency, and dedication to achieve their goals.
Top 10 tips to score good marks in NEET:
In this article, students will get to know about the tips and tricks of scoring good marks in the NEET.
Reason for scoring good marks in NEET:
If the students get the highest score in the NEET exam then only they can get admission into top tier Medical colleges such as AIIMS, JIPMER, etc. Students should put extra effort with proper planning so that they can target to get 650+ or an exceptional 700+ score then only the student’s dreams will come true.
NEET Exam pattern:
Students must be aware of the exam pattern, marks distribution, and weightage of the concepts before they start with the preparations. Physics, Chemistry, and Biology consist of Botany and Zoology subjects; related questions are asked in the NEET.
The NEET exam is conducted in Offline mode with Pen and Paper and the exam duration is 3 hours. There are a total of 180 questions asked and questions are framed with different languages in the NEET exam. The Marking scheme in NEET is 4 marks will be given additionally for every right answer and 1 negative mark for every wrong answer.
In NEET, 45 questions will be asked for each subject such as Physics, Chemistry, Botany, and Zoology. There are a total of 720 marks in the NEET, 180 marks for Physics and Chemistry, and 360 for Biology.
About the syllabus in NEET:
The vast syllabus is included by NTA for the NEET exam so students should prepare well to have a complete comprehensive idea for the concepts. The syllabus contains different weightage of the concepts for each subject so students should study based on that. It’s easy to learn the concepts but it is very important to understand the questions correctly then the students can answer them accordingly.
Should prepare a proper study plan for the exam:
Since the NEET exam has a vast syllabus, students must prepare a study plan before they prepare for the exam. To get a score of 650+ in the NEET, students should have a proper strategic plan that can be developed using Timetable so that they can allot time equally for all the subjects. In this way, students will also complete the entire syllabus.
Books reference:
National Council of Education Research and Training (NCERT) textbooks of Classes 11 and 12 are the best books for the preparation of NEET. According to the NEET expert, Once the students are crystal clear of the concepts in NCERT books then they can include other reference books for preparation.
For physics, Concepts of Physics-H. C. Verma, Fundamentals of Physics- Halliday, Resnick and Walker, Objective Physics-DC Pandey, Fundamental Physics-Pradeep, and Problems in General Physics-IE Irodov.
For chemistry, Physical Chemistry-OP Tandon, ABC of Chemistry for Classes 11 and 12-Modern, Concise Inorganic Chemistry-JD Lee, Dinesh Guide, and VK Jaiswal-Inorganic, MS Chauhan-Organic, and N Awasthi-Physical.
For Biology, Biology 1 and 2-Trueman, Objective Biology-Dinesh, Objective Botany-Ansari, and Pradeep and GR Bathla on Biology.
Time management:
Time management plays an important role in the NEET exam because students must answer all the questions within 3 hours to get a high score. Students can improve their time management skills by practicing the concepts regularly with proper revisions.
Identify weak points and convert them to strong ones:
Students should have a plan based on the weightage of the concepts to get a good score. So students must understand their weak topics first. After identifying weak concepts, students must study daily, practice, and revise them regularly so that their confidence level can be improved in the weak concepts.
Subject-wise preparation for NEET:
It is very important to study all the concepts from the Class 11 and 12 textbooks of NCERT to get a high score. Tips for Subject-wise preparation are included here.
Biology is a very important subject as it takes 50% of NEET score so students must study the concepts by making notes of important and difficult points of the concepts, diagrams must be memorized well, and to comprehend the concepts well by practicing the MCQs daily.
In NEET, the Chemistry subject consists of sections such as Organic chemistry, Inorganic chemistry, and Physical chemistry. Students must read the concepts like calculations, formulas, and equations then it would be the easiest subject to score in the NEET.
Modern physics, electrodynamics, Mechanics, thermodynamics, Kinetics, wave optics, and formulas from Physics should be prepared well.
Practice the concepts and Revise them regularly:
According to the researchers, humans tend to forget things if not practiced and revised daily, so students must be practiced and revised regularly for each subjects’ concepts. It can be achieved by taking short notes, memorizing formulas, equations, and diagrams so that students can get good scores in the NEET. Hence, it improves their confidence level.
Mock tests and solving the previous years’ question papers:
Students can identify the exam pattern by solving previous years’ papers and taking mock tests helps them to answer the questions within exam duration. Also, it improves your performance and confidence level. You can look for questions for individual chapters. For example, search for NEET The Living World Important Questions, and you’ll get a comprehensive list of questions from this particular topic.
How students should be during an exam:
Last but not least, it is very important to keep yourself in good physical and mental health. If you are unhealthy then it will affect your preparation and also make you feel discontent and unmotivated. Hence, it is very essential to have a special diet, take breaks while studying, and sleep well so that you feel relaxed and stress-free.
Conclusion:
Every single step you take today will lead to great success in the future so students must prepare the concepts by a proper strategic plan, taking short notes of important points, and solving Mock tests and previous years’ papers so that their confidence level, time management skill, and problem-solving skills can be improved.
