Below we have curated helpful tips and tricks to help candidates prepare for NEET 2023 better:
To score better and have quality preparation, focus on establishing a benchmark score. This will not only motivate you to score better but also drive you to work on your weak areas.
A timetable or a study plan is essential as it will help you stay on track and keep a note of your progress. Create a plan keeping in mind the time you have in hand and the days left for preparation. Try to include days where you take full-length NEET mock tests as well.
We cannot stress this point enough. Many experts and toppers suggest that knowing clear fundamentals is the key to cracking NEET. The NCERT books are your best friends here. You should thoroughly review the NCERTs and refer to other reference books for practice.
Get acquainted with the paper pattern by going through the previous year’s papers and the mock sample tests available on the official website. If you are struggling to analyse and evaluate your performance in a particular test, the personalised feedback provided by Embibe after each mock test will be of help! It is free and pinpoints the minutest gaps in your preparation, such as the lack of focus, stamina, time management and more.
This is a common but effective tip for NEET preparation. Invest in creating hand-written notes or flashcards so that you can revise important topics later. It would be best if you revise as often as possible so that the fundamentals and formulas are at your fingertips by the time you appear for the exam.
Speed is important for achieving a good NEET score, and accuracy is important to ensure that the questions you cover get you marks instead of losing them to negative marking.
Carefully review every question you attempt in the mock tests and create an error log of the ones you get wrong. Note the method of solving them and include those questions in your practice sets to familiarise yourself.
Since this exam has negative marking, blind-guessing is a big no! You can opt for the strategy of option elimination because it might be helpful in some cases. Read the questions carefully and thoroughly. Stay focused on attempting questions correctly instead of just attempting more questions.
