Avoid Trying to Master Your Weak Areas

To get admission in the best medical colleges in India, experts suggest keeping a focus on your strengths. Doing well in the section that you know best lets you strike a balance your score, if you are weak in another section. Apply this tip while attempting test-series and note how it benefits you. Just being average in sections that you find tough can go in your favour.

Avoid Skimming Through a Topic

Complete a topic in entirety once you start it. Shifting from one topic to the other without a thorough reading would not benefit you. It would harm your confidence level at a later stage as you might not be able to attempt twisted questions.

Avoid Too Many Reference Books

Referring to every next book suggested would leave you confused. The best approach is investing some time to zero down on some of the best books and focus on the ones that you are able to comprehend well. During your research for a book, give weightage to the advice of Alumni from top medical colleges or top scorers of NEET in past 3 years.

Avoid Overwork

Your preparation schedule should be such that it gives you the required resting time. Studying overnight or exerting yourself would eventually leave you fatigued. Having the required rest would let you be fresh.  Studying with a fresh mind enhances your grasping power.

Avoid Creating a ‘Guessing’ Habit

Before NEET exam, students often get tensed and plan for using shortcuts like guess work. Pre-planned guessing technique can land you in trouble. Understanding basics well, applying them, having your logic clear and then choosing the answer is a methodical and the most effective way to answer. Guessing can result in your loss due to negative marking.  

Avoid Listening to Everyone’s Advice

Be judicious about whose advice you should follow and whose advice you should give a deaf ear to. Not every person gives a sound advice. Weigh it in a well-thought manner and then follow what your mind agrees to.

If you follow this approach with a serious preparation, no one can stop you from clear NEET with good scores and getting admissions in one of the top medical colleges in India.

      Hi Rishika,
      Yes, right! At the end moment you shouldn’t involve yourself in reading new books or topics. It will add to your confusion. Revise and practise what you have already studied.

      Good luck!
