The right study materials

The NCERT textbook is the primary study material. In-depth knowledge of the textbook is a must. For practicing MCQ questions, there are a lot of materials available in the market. Get some advice from your teachers or friends on choosing the best one.

Make an effective plan

When you are ready with all the study materials, create an effective plan for 30 days. Manage your time so that you can cover as many topics as possible. Allot time for each activity and take frequent breaks, so that you don’t stress yourself.

Make maximum use of technology

There are hundreds of mobile apps and online tutorials available that can make you understand a topic clearly. It will also help you save a lot of time. Join discussion forums and don’t hesitate to ask doubts.

Work on your speed and accuracy

Improve your speed and accuracy by solving as many questions as possible. Familiarising yourself with a different type of questions will help you a great deal during the exam

Solve previous years’ question papers and sample papers

Solving previous papers and taking up mock tests will help you learn better and evaluate yourself. Since a lot of questions are repeated, going through the previous year’s papers is a must.

Don’t waste time on new concepts

It is probably not a good idea to learn new topics during these final days. Instead, spend more time on topics that you have learned. Mastering topics, you are aware of is a much better idea.

Beware of negative marking

Whenever you are confused between two options, even when you are tempted to do guesswork, it is better to leave the question unanswered. Unnecessary negative marks will impact your result heavily.

       Most of all, students need to remain calm and relaxed. They have to understand that cracking NEET in 30 days is actually possible. Start your preparations right away. Join a crash course programme if you need proper guidance.
