How can I prepare for NEET 2020 now?
So you have two years (just a little less than that). That’s ample time to prepare for NEET UG.
First thing you should keep in mind is that you must pay attention in class from day 1.
One mistake that students make is they think they will study everything in tuition or coaching. Instead, they should first pay attention in class, understand everything, and then leave extra learning to self-studies / tuition / coaching. Syllabus of class 11 and 12 is a quantum leap for many from class 10. So every bit of knowledge you get from various places is valuable.
Second thing is that NCERT books are the best for NEET preparation.
All you need to cover in the NEET syllabus is NCERT books of class 11 and 12 physics, chemistry, biology. This is usually the standard textbook in most boards. However if it is not in your board, then you can refer board prescribed books for board exams and NCERT for NEET preparation.
Third is the NEET 2020 preparation strategy.
NEET 2020 Preparation Strategy
Strategy comprises of:
- What should be your daily time table?
Answer: Your daily time table is dependent on your activities of the day and your sleeping habits. Since you are in class 11, you must be going to school. If you are an early riser, then you can wake up around 4:30 AM and study for one hour before school. Then you come back from school around 2 PM. After that you eat and rest until around 4 PM. After that you can study for two hours. Then go out for some physical activities. Come back and study again for three hours at least. If you wake up late and sleep late, then you can shift your morning’s one hour study time to night. With this time table, you can study at least 6 hours every day yourself.
Later on, when your school ends, you can put in more hours of self-studies. If you go to coaching/tuition then it becomes hectic to take out time for self studies. Therefore opt for such a coaching which is not too far from your home so that travel time is eliminated.
- What should be your monthly goals?
Answer: To begin with, you should study all that is being taught in school. Whenever a topic gets over, practice its MCQs.
There are 59 topics in NEET syllabus, and you need to finish them before December 2019. So divide the number of chapters by the number of days you have left. Say if that comes out to be 2 chapters in a day, then please make sure that you actually cover 2 chapters in a day. This way you can set your monthly targets.
- How to do self-assessment?
Taking a shot in light is better than a shot in the dark. By self assessment you will know about your strengths and weaknesses. You can do self assessment by solving MCQs and taking mock tests. After every chapter, solve its MCQs. After completing syllabus take several mock tests and solve past year papers.
- How to convert strengths into weaknesses?
Once you know your weaknesses, immediately seek help of a teacher or mentor. Usually the problem lies in grasp of concepts. Once that is clear, you can solve its questions better. That, and continuous practice is the key.
