  • Online Assessment – To know where you stand among other aspirants, take online mock for NEET. You should not limit on the number of tests; take as many as you can. Initially start with chapter based and gradually move to full length tests. You can do this by subscribing to any online assessment platform for NEET. But make sure you practice regularly.
  • Relax – In coaching class you don’t get the freedom to study as per your convenience and capability. This leads to mental block. However, self-study provides you that opportunity and keeps you away from needless competition, which is the main source of stress. In self-study you can study as per your time table, and take breaks as per the need. You should:
  1. Maintain balance between study and paper solving
  2. Prepare study/revision notes and follow it regularly
  3. Do your favorite activities during study break to stay stress free

While there is no direct answer to whether one should prefer coaching classes or not for NEET, it depends on the student and his/her ability. If you go with the record of toppers, most of them have preferred self-study over classes, and the result is in front of us.
