What Are These NEET Paper Codes?

Every exam has 4 different ‌sets of question papers, AA, BB, CC, and DD. These are called paper codes. In other words, each question paper contains jumbled questions in sequence, sometimes with a twisted question for the same answer.

In an examination hall with 10 candidates, the first person gets AA, the second gets BB, the third gets CC, and the fourth gets DD, but not precisely in the same order. A primary objective of this is to stop candidates from engaging in malpractices. In the previous year, NEET-UG papers were available for codes M1 to M6, N1 to N6, O1 to O6, and P1 to P6.

7 NEET Preparation Tips By Toppers

NEET answer keys can help candidates with solving the questions efficiently. Suppose a candidate gets a wrong answer, they can refer to NEET solutions. However, a student must strive to work hard regularly. 

Candidates must have the right attitude and must aim high. This section brings the best tips followed by  NEET toppers over the years.

  1. Be well-informed about‌ the exam, the syllabus, format, duration, marking scheme, topic-wise weightage, etc. Additionally, one must also know the weak areas and continuously work on them.
  2. Follow a discipline by setting goals and collating the study material by not losing track of time. Candidates must equally divide time for all 4 subjects–Physics, Chemistry, Botany and Zoology. Also, setting a realistic daily and monthly target is useful.
  3. Master the Syllabus with the help of NCERT instead of juggling between multiple sources. There is no substitute for the NCERT syllabus. Additionally, candidates must solve previous years’ question papers and mock tests.
  4. Remember that questions are tweaked, but concepts remain the same. So learn to apply concepts appropriately, which comes only with rigorous practice.
  5. Resort to assistance from coaching centres or even online subject ‌ experts. They can provide tips and tricks to crack NEET 2023. 
  6. Time allotment is essential, so focus on subjects you think require more of your attention. Set limits and finish subjects within the stipulated time. 
  7. Prepare your notes by highlighting chapters, and important formulae, mapping different concepts and diagrams, using mnemonics, and much more to ease learning.

How to Prepare for Exam Using NEET Papers?

  • Aspirants should solve the question papers regularly and check the answer keys to get accuracy. Focus on your weak areas if your answers are incorrect.
  • Set up a timer for solving the question paper and learn time management skills before the exams.

How to Attempt the NEET Question Paper?

  • Divide the NEET paper into 3 slots.
  • In the first slot, solve relatively easier questions.
  • Take a few harder questions in the next slot, but they are not too difficult.
  • The last slot is for the most challenging section of the question paper. 

This method ensures that candidates waste little time attempting questions that are difficult for them.

Benefits of NEET Practice Papers PDFs

  • Solve problems easily.
