NEET UG 2022:
A time period of nearly two weeks left for the conduct of NEET UG 2022 must surely be sending chills down the spines of all medical aspirants who are slated to appear in the exam. Conducted annually by the National Testing Agency (NTA) for admission to undergraduate and postgraduate courses in various esteemed institutions of the country, the National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) is one medical entrance exam that demands rigorous preparations and smart studying manoeuvres to open doors to desired colleges/universities.
While the deal might be less burdensome for the postgraduate students, who are already well-versed with the nuances of medical sciences, the students seeking admission to Undergraduate courses are often swamped under significant pressure to ace the exam. Therefore, ahead of the conduct of the NEET UG 2022 exam on July 17, here are sundry preparation tips that the aspirants can follow to achieve their target score.
Preparation Tip #1: Get a Hang of the Basics
NCERT books are the first and the foremost go-to thing, irrespective of the level of the examination the candidate is appearing in. NCERT books impart immense strength to the foundation of the subject, while painting a clearer picture of its concepts too. Once the candidate is done brushing up his/her skills in the basics of the subject, they can refer to other refresher books and references to get a hang of the topics that are not mentioned in the NCERT books.
Preparation Tip #2: Keep the Notes Handy
Needless to say, penning down notes is one of the key strategies that helps you retain the subject matter in your memory. It might seem a little time consuming at first, but with the help of tactics such as preparing concise notes, using short forms wherever necessary, writing in bullet points and creating visuals for easy remembrance can come to your aid during the course of exam preparations.
Preparation Tip #3: Revise the Syllabus Often
It is essential for the candidate to know that with two to three weeks left for the exam to commence, studying new topics and chapters is not at all a wise decision. Hence, the candidate must be focused on going through the topics that they have already studied at length earlier. Instead of conquering the entire syllabus at the eleventh hour, the witty decision would be to hone skills in topics that have already been covered.
Preparation Tip #4: Take As Many Mock Tests As Possible
Though this may sound generic, solving sample papers and mock tests often imparts the skills required by the candidates to finish the paper within the stipulated time. Additionally, this practice is also known to familiarise the candidates with the pattern of the question paper and the format of the questions that they may face in the upcoming exam. However, burdening yourself with umpteen mock tests and sample papers right before the commencement of the exam is no beneficial deal.
Preparation Tip #5: Maintain Equanimity
Maintaining equanimity is equally important as studying well before showing up for the exam. The sense of panic and inner turbulence often plays spoilsport in the exams, even for the candidates who are well-prepared. Therefore, to achieve the needful, aspirants must include brief breaks lasting 10-15 minutes long after every 2 hours of rigorous study plan. Also, they must have sound sleep for 6 to 7 hours every day compulsorily and must also distance themselves from distractions, to ensure better functioning of the brain.
