Make a Realistic Timetable

You have two years of syllabus in front of  you and there is only one year of time so you should be realistic about the timetable that you are about to make. Most of the people tend to procrastinate just by looking at the timetable. So you should be sure that this timetable will yield results for you and you will be able to  complete the syllabus. As there is less time you should focus on completing more topics every day. Pick a specific time of the day when your brain is more active and you are capable of understanding the topics easily, most of the people prefer to study in the mornings but this is a personal  choice dependent on the personal requirement. Stick to the timetable strictly.

Start from the Scratch

It is important for you to know the basics of every subject at first. So spend the starting days of your preparation by knowing about the basics of each and every chapter. After completion of the basics you can concentrate on the most important chapters of the syllabus. But you should have strong fundamentals of all  subjects for sure.

There are nearly 1500 topics in NEET subject and you should be aware of all the topics.

Regular Practice

 After completion of one chapter, you should practice the questions related to that specific chapter. Collect all the practice, mock and previous question papers and start answering the questions related to particular chapters. It is important for you to solve these questions in order to make good progress. There are so many question papers available in the market, the practice makes a huge impact on the exam so do not neglect it under any circumstances.

Mock Tests

Taking the mock tests from time to time will surely help the candidates a lot. If you are preparing at home, you won’t have anyone to supervise and guide you so it is important for  you to take decisions by yourself and work on them. There are so many mock question papers and previous exam papers present online. Take a full length mock test from time to time, this way you will be able to evaluate the topics in which you are strong and the ones in which you aren’t. Theses mock tests will also give you an idea of time management.

Read, Revise and Repeat

It is important for you to revise each and every topic from time to time so that you can be on track all the time. Take some set of questions related to a topic and spend one minute for each question. Spend 40 minutes to one hour on everyday basis for this revision. You should revise all the topics present in your syllabus by answering the questions. This way you will be able to remember the questions.

The one year time before exam is very crucial and every minute counts so you should make sure that you use the time wisely. It is better to stay away from your smartphone during this time. You can use a simple feature phone to make calls. You shouldn’t distract yourselves at all.
