NEET and JEE 2023 Preparation Strategy: What to Do in a Year?

If you want to know, “can I crack NEET 2023 if I start now?” or want a 1-year study plan for IIT JEE PDF, read the below points, which are relevant to all the students preparing for different competitive exams.

  • Try to complete the entire syllabus for your respective exam by November, or maximum by December.

  • Focus on current ongoing topics first; do not worry about the topics left behind. You can cover them later.

  • Segregate topics into broad chunks or blocks and follow a dedicated schedule.

  • Make fresh handwritten notes and do not rely solely on PDFs or your previous notes.

Class-wise Time Allotment 

JEE 2023 aspirants, who are preparing for the exam in a year, are recommended to devote 80 per cent of their preparation time to Class 12 topics and the remaining to Class 11 topics. You can increase or decrease this division by five per cent maximum.

Block Strategy

A team of experts brainstormed and came up with a segregation technique for the entire NEET and JEE 2023 syllabus. They divided it into blocks after considering several factors, and have allotted a deadline to complete them. You can always merge the topics as per your preference.

Revision Strategy

After completing your entire syllabus block-wise as given above, it's time for revision in the remaining months. 

  • Focus on revision chapters from December to January midweek. Vedantu offers separate special revision classes for JEE and NEET, based on students’ needs.

  • Practice revision question bank. Remember, it is completely different from your regular chapter/topic-wise assignments.

  • Take a mock test every 3-4 weeks. These mock tests must be based on a part of the syllabus, half or complete syllabus, but not chapter-wise.

  • Practice an ample number of previous years’ question papers of different levels, like JEE Main, JEE Advanced, AIIMS, etc.

  • Gradually, start preparing more for your board exams simultaneously.

Assignments and Mock Tests

If you complete your syllabus by December, as expected of every NEET/JEE aspirant, you get one and a half months left to solve as many assignments as you can. But how should you go about it?

  • Try to solve a minimum of 50 to 100+ questions from each chapter when you are also preparing that chapter, i.e from August till December.

  • When you’ve reached the revision phase, increase your number of questions from each chapter to 100 to 200+.

  • Till December, when you are still in your preparation phase, experts recommend giving a mock test every 3 weeks. Remember to always time yourself to get a better hold of the exam pattern.

FAQs on 1-Year Strategic Roadmap for JEE and NEET 2023 for Droppers

1. Is it worth taking a drop for JEE 2023?

If you are not satisfied with your JEE Main 2022 result and haven’t prepared much for JEE Advanced, then take a drop year and start working from scratch. But first analyse what branches you can get in which NITs or IIITs with your JEE Main score, as dedicating another year to rigorous 10-hour study per day is not feasible for everyone.

2. When should I start preparing for NEET 2023?

Students who are sure they want to sit for the NEET exam should start their preparation as early as possible, majorly as soon as they enter their 11th standard. However, if you are not so sure, starting in Class 12 or even after 12th boards will still fetch you a decent rank based on your hard work. However, remember that the earlier you start preparing, the better will be your chances of scoring higher. This is because you will get ample time for revision and mock tests.
