The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) is the most important entrance exam for the medical aspirants. Every year thousands of aspirants take this examination. By qualifying the NEET examination, aspirants will get admission to MBBS and BDS undergraduate courses, in the prestigious medical colleges of our country. The NEET syllabus covers topics from 10+2 level Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. As the competition is fierce in this entrance examination, all aspirants are suggested to consult the best study materials and NCERT textbooks for their preparation.
Here are some of the important details of NEET preparation that will help you to score more than 500 with a month’s preparation.
If we go back 10 years from now, school and college were the only institutions that were enough for students to crack any of the competitive exams but today the tables are turned. The cut-throat competition has made all the NEET aspirants work in multiple areas. Self-study and NEET preparation has to go hand in hand. In the same way, hard work and the right techniques or approach or strategies is the bridge between you and excellent marks.

NEET coaching classes are an institution built for providing the best guidance and assistance to the aspirants. These coaching classes pay special attention to every individual and help them work effectively towards their goals. The questions that come for NEET are based on the 11th and 12th-grade Physics, Chemistry, Zoology, and Botany. A total of 180 questions are asked in the NEET exam, and there are 45 questions in each Chemistry, and Physics section, whereas, 90 questions are asked from Biology. The number of candidates applying for the NEET exam is increasing every year, and the competition is quite fierce. So to prepare well for the NEET exam candidates must be well aware of the basic details of this examination.

1. Know What You have to Study/Your SDyllabus
The syllabus that is set for NEET applicants is vast but panicking will be just the opposite of what you should do. So instead, compose yourself and plan your studies based on the topics to be covered. The syllabus for the NEET exam is almost similar to NCERT and most of the topics can be covered from NCERT books. Therefore, go though all the topics from the NCERT books of 11th and 12th-grades and note down the important points for revision.
2. Smart Study Material
When preparing for the NEET exam when only 1 month is left, the selection of the right study material can be a little confusing. To avoid confusion, chalk out your study routine in a subject-wise manner.
For Physics and Chemistry: Make sure you study from your self-prepared notes rather than lengthy standard books for a simple learning process, especially when only 1 month is left. Solving MCQ as much as possible is a must.
For Biology: To prepare for biology, study from the NCERT books. Do not refer to any kind of short notes for Biology at this stage. Prepare flowcharts with important keywords. Solve and practice the last 10 years’ question papers. Remember that Biology carries greater weightage than Physics or Chemistry, so dedicate more time to it.
You can also take help from teachers and avail of online expert assistance. Consulting students who have already cleared the NEET exams will be extremely beneficial to plan your exam strategies.
3. Create a Calendar Timetable for 1 month
Mark your study calendar from day 1 and have a pre-planned routine for each day. This will help you judge your revision pace. This is an organized method to avoid exam stress.
4. Make Notes While Studying
One of the best ways you can memorize important details for longer, is by making short notes and highlighting the important points. This way all the important information will be easily accessible and you can revise it daily without having to hunt down through several pages.
5. Revise Over and Over Again
What is the use of putting so much effort if you can’t remember what you studied? So revising what you have studied is crucial. Revise all the important formulas along with their applications. Solve and practice sample question papers.
It is important to keep your minds and body fit during this last month before NEET. Follow a healthy diet, have foods that contain iron and vitamin B. Ensure that you consume a good amount of water and sleep for at least 6-8 hours every day, so that you have a fit body and a refreshed mind.
