NEET Exam Analysis 2019 | NEET Dos and Don’ts
Unaware of the Dos and Don’ts, many aspirants who will be appearing for NEET for the first time shall face a piquant situation in some parts. Like for NEET 2017, several aspirants who had their centres in some areas of Tamil Nadu faced unwanted issues. For instance, several boys who had gone to attend the test wearing full sleeved shirts were taken aback when they were told that only half-sleeved shirts were allowed in the examination hall. Left with no choice, they had to “customise” it by cutting it to size by using scissors. Also, some who had come wearing shoes had to dump it and hastily opt for the sandals of their parents. Girls had to hurriedly remove hairpins, bands and ornaments like earrings and nose-pins as these accessories were not allowed. Some who had brought their own pens and pencils had to leave it with their parents.
Though it had given a list of Dos and Don’ts as part of measures to prevent malpractices, many aspirants were not aware of it. The Don’ts included big buttons, brooches and high-heeled shoes for female candidates and kurta-pyjamas for male aspirants. Mobile phones and gadgets such as Bluetooth devices were also barred. The Dos included “bring Admit Card,” “reach on time” at the exam centre with “only the required documents.” We say this because, while academic preparation is the priority, things like these also matter as they can affect your confidence level as you approach the exam hall.
After having seen the paper of NEET 2017, we can’t stress this enough – smart studying trumps slogging any day anytime in any exam. You need to be more focused and dedicated when it comes to preparing for NEET 2019. You can’t be expected to be excited about learning each and every concept. It’s about learning to strategize your study plan in such a way that you get your time’s worth (in the form of high scores!)
