Maintain separate notes for NEET with all terminologies. Highlight important points, use mnemonics, flowcharts, mappings, graphs etc.

2. What is the best way to understand a new topic?

When you are reading a new topic, go through it carefully. Instead of memorising and learning it, first, read and then try to recall important information. Read and learn it the second time. This time you will learn it in-depth. In the end, begin solving questions in the chapter. This way, you will have read the chapter twice and also would have conceptual clarity on it.

3. Why is it important to know this syllabus?

NEET 2022 syllabus is extremely important to understand the topics well before starting your preparation. Knowing NEET 2022 syllabus is essential for the candidates because of the following reasons:-
