With the increasing number of coronavirus patients in the world and India, the situation is becoming scarier every day. The pandemic situation isn’t only disturbing because of the threat it poses to human lives, but also for the social disruption it has caused.
The dire circumstances surrounding Covid-19 have prompted several national governments to implement lockdown, including India. The central government announced a nationwide lockdown of several major cities in India till 31st March, and this might continue further should the need so arises.
Therefore, for the time being, students and working individuals need to remain confined to their houses to prevent the spread of this pandemic disease. However, working individuals have the option to work from home, but students’ lives have been affected significantly. That’s because they are lacking in acquiring the expert study help they need to prepare for their academic ventures like NEET.
Their preparation is affected due to several factors as mentioned below –
Unavailability of private tuition or coaching centres due to lockdown.
Not able to prepare efficiently without study notes.
Unable to receive expert guidance for adequate preparation.
Unable to clear their doubts.
These reasons can have a severe impact on your child’s NEET preparation, and hence you need to look for ways that can turn this lockdown situation in favour of their academic pursuits.
Here, have a look at how to help your child prepare efficiently for NEET amidst the coronavirus scare.
Tips to NEET Aspirants for Undeterred Preparation
Tip 1. Create a Time Table
It has been seen that even students who study day and night fail to qualify through the NEET exam. One of the primary reasons behind this is the lack of practical time management skills. You must help your child to prepare a solid time table which they can follow and through which they can cover the extensive syllabus in the remaining time.
Having a study plan can help students in efficiently covering the entire syllabus within the due time while sparing time for revision. With no tuitions, students are left for self-study at this crucial time of coronavirus outbreak. Hence, having a time table works favourably for NEET aspirants.
Tip 2. Stick to the Latest Syllabus
Getting well-versed with the curriculum is probably the first thing that students must do as they start their NEET preparation. With NEET scheduled for 3rd May 2020, and there’s no news regarding postponing of exams, students are left with approximately a month only.
Understandably, your children have started preparing for the test long back, but efficiently covering the entire NEET syllabus is crucial for qualifying the examination at one go.
Remember, the key is to study smart, not hard.
Tip 3. Practise is the Key
While studying will help you gain profound knowledge of the concepts, practice will help you solve the questions efficiently and in time. While India is undergoing lockdown due to the novel coronavirus disease, students can utilise this time apart to practise the learnt concepts. Here are a few tips you child must adhere to for qualifying the test.
Practise a minimum of 90 questions each day apart from the daily study routine.
Analyse the solved questions to verify your understanding of the concept and accuracy rate.
Study the topics where you are weak and dedicate more time to prepare those questions.
Mark the difficult questions to revise later.
Tip 4. Refer Quality Study Material
A student preparing for NEET needs to make the right decision in choosing the books to which they will refer. Hence, choose a study solution based on the quality of understanding it provides, level of question it includes, etc. An excellent guide book has practice sets, important questions, and glossary notes to ease and quicken the understanding of the concept.
However, as at this critical time caused by the coronavirus disease, you can’t go out to scan through and buy quality books, the online study material is one solution. You can look for the features mentioned above in online study material you seek.
Tip 5. Register for Online Tuitions
Amidst the coronavirus lockdown phase, NEET aspirants who need assistance in understanding a particular concept will find the online tuition helpful. Keeping in mind the unfavourable circumstance caused by the coronavirus disease for NEET aspirants, Vedantu has introduced registration to their online live classes at a highly discounted rate. On the one hand, this makes the process economical for parents, and on the other hand, our experienced tutors help NEET aspirants to prepare for their exams effectively.

Tip 6. Take MOCK Tests
Qualifying NEET exams doesn’t only depend upon the student’s knowledge and ability to solve questions but upon how they can timely finish their paper. In the test, a student’s ability to answer questions in limited time is tested. They need to solve 180 questions in 180 minutes, and that is a tedious task as they have one minute to solve each problem.
Hence, attempting full length MOCK tests will prepare students for the final entrance exam. Your children can assess their performance and learn about their areas of struggle by taking such MOCK tests. Further, taking all India MOCK test series offered by us will help them get a real insight into their performance compared to the large section of students appearing for the same.
While the coronavirus scare has confined individuals to their home, NEET aspirants can still make their preparation a success by preparing with the MOCK tests.
Tip 7.Get Revision Notes
It is as much essential to revise the learnt concepts as it is to complete the syllabus. Revision is crucial in qualifying for NEET.
In this regard, help your child note down the important topics and questions to be revised later. Or, you may get help with our revision notes prepared meticulously by our professional tutors. Skim through the notes right before an exam or practice the critical questions to have an edge in the competitive examination.
Tip 8. Health is Wealth
Last but not least, health is a significant concern during this epidemic situation caused by coronavirus disease. It can have a severe impact on your kid’s physical or mental health, and hence you must keep your child protected. Making sure your kid is healthy will ensure they are fit enough to prepare for the fast-approaching NEET exams.
Besides, the quickly spreading coronavirus infection can hamper one’s health severely. Therefore, you need to make sure that your child remains safe during this hour.
Have a look at the coronavirus symptoms so that you can seek medical attention should the need arise in your family.
Shortness of breath
Organ failure, etc.
Hence, you need to be wary and seek immediate medical if anyone in your family, including you, develops such symptoms.
Even with individuals locked down in their homes, the precautionary measures need to be taken to ensure protection. Therefore, make sure your kid adheres to the preventive methods to keep themselves safe during the pandemic outbreak.
Don’t touch your mouth, nose, or eyes with unwashed hands.
