Don’t go outside – When there is a lockdown in the country, it’s witty not to come outside your home. While this will help in self-quarantine, it will also help you in devoting yourself more time into workable areas and self-improvise.
Don’t compare yourself with others – It is important to be a part of a healthy discussion with competitors and friends, however, one should trust their own planning and preparations. They should avoid comparing their preparation level with each other. With this, candidates can lose their confidence and panic before the examination.
Don’t overstress – The NTA NEET exam aspirants don’t need to over pressurise their brains during NEET preparation. A minimum of 7 hours sleep is necessary to let your brain function properly.
