Common Problems that NEET students face

Many aspirants are unaware of a few facts that can negatively impact their exam performance. Keep them in mind as you prepare for NEET 2022, and try to avoid them. First and foremost, we will discuss two primary reasons that contribute to lowering your exam scores.

  • Concentrating on one subject: Aspirants usually focus on one subject while falling behind in the other two. They often overlook that the final score is based on a mix of all three subjects, not just one. As a result, all the subjects should be given adequate time.
  • Using multiple study resources: Under different influences, students pile up many reference books around them. This adds up to confusion, and students cannot concentrate on their studies. Here, the suggestion is to stick with only one study material with simplified theory, ample examples, and good practice questions.

Follow the secret from the toppers to ace in NEET 2022. Add the following tips in your study plan and avail the benefits of the same.

  1. Make a grip over NEET Syllabus: NEET exam syllabus is designed after considering the CBSE/ ICS / COBSE/ NCERT/ State Boards syllabi of classes 11 and 12. Knowing and understanding the complete syllabus will help you formulate a better strategy for NEET 2022 as well it will save your time to avoid studying irrelevant topics.
  2. Understand the Exam Pattern: The NEET is an objective exam conducted in pen and paper mode. As per the latest pattern of NEET 2021, the question paper is broadly divided into four subjects: Physics, Chemistry, Botany, and Zoology. Each subject is further segregated into two sections with some internal choices.
  3. Create a flexible action plan: After adhering to the syllabus and exam pattern, the thing that you have left with is to execute your game plan to sail successfully through NEET. Studying with a set routine may bring boredom to your learning and will disturb your focus. To maintain rhythm in your studying, keep on modifying your study plan at regular intervals depending on the basis of requirements and need of an hour. Keerthana, top ranks with a 99.99 percentile states that no fixed timetable she follows rather allocated time for chapter-wise and concept-wise preparation.
  1. Priorities NCERT: NEET 2019 Topper, AIR 1 – Nalin Khandelwal from Rajasthan and many others suggests mastering NCERT Syllabus for Class 11 & 12 by doing multiple readings till all the concepts in all subjects are clear. Don’t ever attempt to skip learning from NCERT, as by doing this, you miss on the actual concepts behind every topic. To get clear and precise information regarding every topic of NCERT, reading through Objective NCERT at your Fingertips is suggested.

  1. Deeper Dedication: Toppers were able to pass the NEET exam due to their unwavering effort. They have given their full attention for the past two years. They had been preparing since the beginning of 11th grade. You must start your preparation early to excel in the exam. Tanmay Gupta has topped the exam with AIR 2 and a perfect score of 720 in NEET 2021, said that consistency and dedication towards your goal leads to success.
  1. Make short study sessions: Divide your time into small study sessions instead of studying for long hours. Learning within a small duration help you to retain information. NEET UG- 2021 Topper, Mrinal Kutterialso says that he did not study for 8-10 hours at a stretch to crack NEET but took breaks. “I looked intently for short durations of about 45 minutes to one hour and took 10-15 minutes’ break thereafter. (Ref: The Indian Express). Similarly, AIIMS 2019 Topper Bhavik Bansal suggested reading for 5-6 hours daily to achieve your goal. So you need to take  a duration best suited to you whenever you can do a dedicated study without getting bored.
  1. Choose the best study material: Students often take more time selecting the appropriate Study material. Choosing the best among the thousands is a tedious task. Selecting the right study resources will also raise your chances to crack the exam with excellent scores. Arunangshu Bahttacharya AIR 19, NEET 2019 suggests one should avoid too many different books, as it only creates confusion. Have a few good books for each subject, and just follow them.

  1. Avoid procrastination: To be topper you need to include discipline in your study schedule. Don’t avoid complex topics and leave them for later practice. This will only pile up your bag and leave you unprepared.
  2. Self-analyse your preparation: It is essential to self-analyse your preparation. Indulge yourself in practice mode and give yourself exam drills through Mock Tests and solving Previous Years Papers.Akansha Singh NEET 2020 Topper, advice to  practise through a lot of mock papers and tried to solve them within a time limit. A timebound approach while preparing for the medical entrance helped her to secure second place in the exam, she claims.
  3. Must Revise: Revision is the final step of your study regime. NEET (AIPMT) 2014 Topper Lovedeep Singh Dhingra said that ‘jot down all the important formulas in a notebook and revise them frequently to have a good grasp on it. You may also try practising formula-based questions to know your capability and understanding of the formulas’.

Don’t study for the sake of studying. Enjoy and have fun but work hard too.
  1. Don’t take stress: NEET 2019 topper AIR-10, Raghav Dubey, suggests to find your own de-stressing mechanism. He states, “I have a passion for swimming and I used to do it rarely during my preparations. However, to get rid of stress, I used to talk to my parents, friends, and other family members,”. So, to destress yourself, do the activity that gives you pleasure, it can be any hobby, music, games or long walk.
  2. Read the question paper carefully: Go through the question paper twice. Read every question carefully, don’t read the question in a hurry; instead, read it slowly and understand what it is asking for, then answer it. Het Shah AIR 4, AIIMS 2016, shares his exam day strategy, “Take a brief overview of the paper for about five to ten minutes as soon as you receive it. Gauge the difficulty level. Attempt the physics part of the paper most patiently as it has the maximum potential for calculation errors and silly mistakes. Do not forget to cross your sums.” This can be different for different people. Attempt sample papers as much as you can, to devise your exam day strategies.
  3. Experts Advice- Use your time wisely in the exam hall:  Do not panic at all—no need to leave the exam hall early. If you have left with excess time then utilize the time to re-read/ re-check your answers. Do not change any answer in confusion. A thorough revision of every solution is necessary as it will help you identify the errors and make the required corrections.

Practice determines your success

Practice as many problems as you can before the exam. It is only through practice that you can get a fair idea about the way the questions are asked in the exams and help you manage your time efficiently during the exam. You are advised to solve previous years papers before sitting for the actual examination. Believe in yourself and stay confident! Keep yourself healthy. Take sound sleep. We are sure you will come out with flying colours.
