Case 2: Re-appearing for NEET in the coming year

After result declaration a lot of student (who didn’t manage to score well) thinks of taking a year drop to re-appear for the exam in the coming year(s). While it is common to think this way, the decision of whether to take a drop in your career to re-appear differs from individual to individual and case to case to basis.

Dropping a year has its own pros and cons. Let’s take a look at the advantages and disadvantages of re-appearing in NEET.

Benefits taking a drop

  • You may score excellent marks in the second attempt and get into your dream college and course
  • Your confidence level may go up after achieving your dream score, which can be a great motivation for the future academics
  • Due to the admission in one of the top medical colleges of India, you may end up getting hefty pay package or brilliant job offer, which otherwise you could have missed if you wouldn’t have opted for a drop

Risks of taking a drop

  • The stress level may increase
  • You may be under constant pressure to perform better in your second attempt, because you already wasted a year, therefore cannot afford to waste the second one
  • The exam day may not be good – you may fall sick or miss the exam due to traffic or any other unavoidable circumstances

If you are still confused whether to take a drop or not, try the below exercise:

  • Do you really want to be a doctor?
  • Will you be able to crack NEET if you appear next year?
  • Are you confident enough about clearing NEET in second attempt?

If your answer is YES, go ahead and give it a second shot! But if you have even a slightest doubt, you must re-think over your decision of taking a drop or re-appearing. Make the right choice! 🙂
