Fix A Target: Make an aim of how much you want to score out of 720? A decent target for droppers would be 650+ but it is absolutely upto you.
Follow A Routine: No matter how banal it might sound, a mindful time table is a key to success for all the toppers. They follow it very diligently.
Map Out Important Topics: You cannot spend same amount of time and energy on all the topics. So, define topics into following:
- Important but easy.
- Important and difficult.
- Not very important.
Most of the time and energy should be spent in turning “important and difficulty” into “important but easy”. Rest must be practiced now and them to make better.
Practice Mock Test and Previous Year Question Papers: These are the most important resources. It is advised that you practice it from the beginning but as the exam approaches near more focus should be on these.
NEET 2021 Timetable for Droppers
Here is a daily routine that the NEET dropper can follow to prepare for the upcoming NEET 2021 exam. Given that droppers have already covered the syllabus by now, most of the focus must be on revision and grasping the difficult topics, here is the timetable to follow:
|Name of the activity||Time allotment|
|Daily chores||3 hours|
|Notes+important topics||6 hours|
|Previous year questions||3 hours|
|Buffer time (for difficult topics)||2 hours|
To be able to follow the above timetable above, the ideal time to wake up at the morning is at 6 am. One can also take a 15 minutes time in the morning to meditate and calm down the worked up mind, or take a walk in fresh morning air or whatever that can bring calmness to the mind.
NEET 2021 Droppers Do Solve NCERT
While solving the questions make sure to cover all the questions from NCERT books for all the 3 subjects. The examples in the NCERT books must be also completed. Droppers must aim at understanding the questions along with solving them. The concepts applied to solve the problem is key. If a candidate understands the concept the solving of questions becomes easy.
Here are NCERT books for Physics, Chemistry and Biology:

How to Revise for NEET 2021?
There are 2 subjects that the candidates have to cover for NEET 2021 these are biology, physics, and chemistry. Biology is the subject that carry the maximum marks. Therefore the revision for Biology must start early in the day.
First, revise Biology: Ideally, the candidates should start their day with the revision of biology. Here the candidates must revise all the chapters thoroughly. NCERT books must be read line by line. Candidates can also make notes of the chapters that they are reading to understand them more.
Second, revise Chemistry: While revising for chemistry, candidates must read thoroughly the NCERT books, and keep writing all the chemical formulas in a notebook to learn them better.
Third, revise Physics: Physics revision must be done in 2 parts. The first 1 or more hours can be dedicated to self-study and revision of the theory part. Then the next half an hour or so can be used to solve the questions of the chapters that have been revised. Physics is the subject where the theory part becomes more clear if the numericals are practiced regularly.
NEET 2021 Strategy For Droppers – Previous Year Question Papers and Mock test
The candidates must also aim at solving one full length previous year paper or one mocktest every day. Doing the mock tests and solvimg the past year papers have 3 fold advantages: Candidates can achieve speed, learn time management, and achieve accuracy.
