      Hi Yogita,
      There is no standard time set to prepare for entrance exams. It entirely depends on your capability and capacity. One thing you should note that don’t over-stress yourself, else you may get bored. Therefore take frequent study breaks of not more than 10 mins after every 2 hours of study. This will help you freshen up your mind.

      According to NEET 2016 Topper Het Shah it is fine if you are not consistent with the number of hours you study each day. What is important here is you should be regular in your preparation and revision. One should practice chapter based and complete syllabus questions using online NEET Test Series.

      We recommend you prepare a Study Plan for your NEET Preparation. You can refer our planner for help http://studmonk.com/blog/2016/09/02/download-neet-2017-study-plan/

      All the best! 🙂
