New Delhi, February 23, 2019: If you are a grade 12 student, you are probably studying long hours, gearing up for your board and competitive exams. Most board examinations including CBSE, and other state examinations have started, making it even more difficult for medical aspirants to continue preparing for the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET). The NEET exam is the gateway into MBBS and BDS courses in many government medical colleges according to reports published in indianexpress.com
You must answer a total of 180 questions, distributed equally between Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. Each question is worth 4 marks. Every incorrect answer will cost you -1 mark.
Studying and cracking NEET is quite a challenge. Last year, the top 10 ranks had scored above 668 out of 720. If you have taken it up, here is a 3-month plan to help you along the way.
How to prepare for NEET 2019: Timeline
First month: Revise key NEET concepts while balancing board exams
Why focus on board exams?
Even though NEET is a very critical exam, do not ignore your board exams at this point. Marks that you score in grade 12 go a long way when it comes to higher education.
Moreover, if you chose to do a BSc course instead of pursuing MBBS, your board exam marks will be the deciding factor.’
What are the key topics from the NEET syllabus?
The best way to do this is to use the breaks between your board papers to study the three subjects.
At this stage, you don’t have time to revise the entire syllabus. Go back to the short notes and flashcards that you had made to revise all important concepts.
Remember, NEET gives a lot of weightage to particular topics. Study these first. The following topics have seen importance over the years:
Physics: Mechanics, Electrodynamics, and Optics
Chemistry: Chemical Bonding and Co-ordination Compounds, General Organic Chemistry and Carbonyl Compounds, and Chemical Kinetics & Thermochemistry
Biology: Human physiology, Genetics and evolution, and Ecology
